"Jesus welcomes doubts, questions, confusion, frustration, venting, and disbelief. He welcomes those who draw near and say, ‘I feel so far.’ If you haven’t talked to him in a while, he will not bite your head off. His arms are always open. Jesus can handle your clenching of the teeth and shaking of the fist. What he does not want is for you to stay there."

"So many people look at Jesus and they “admire” Him from afar, but the reality is that you cannot admire Jesus from afar, at least you don’t truly see Him. You see what you think He is, that is like looking at a picture of the ocean and thinking it is just that, a silent and still photo. Once you truly come before Christ, with the endowment of the Holy Spirit, He takes you from the still photo of Him and submerges you into the ocean of His grace, that experience with Christ is the new birth."
