There is no self-righteousness in heaven, for the righteous have given up self for Christ who then becomes apart of ourselves. The marriage of body and soul will be completed when the soul has given up the pride that is birthed within us the day we were brought into this world. Heaven knows the joy of self-sacrifice, because it is always in the presence of the ultimate sacrifice. When we take time to encounter Jesus daily, we are brought into a heavenly mindset, this mindset bellows out “Thy will be done”. When we follow the instructions of Christ, we gain the heart of Christ; that heart is one that beats joy, peace, love and wisdom. It cannot be swayed and it cannot be stopped, for Christ conquered death so that we may have life and life abundantly.
Seek this heart, seek this mindset and seek to be more like Christ; for it is the joy of heaven to be able to bring the will of God down to earth.”

This morning my cousin Cade decided he wanted to shave his head for St. Baldrick’s in honor of his friend, Colton. Colton passed away from neuroblastoma (a rare childhood cancer) at age four in September. Camden, Colton’s younger brother, ran on stage to hug Cade afterwards. Sweet boys remembering another sweet boy.
