God save us from religion.
Nobody wants to worship you if you have the same problems, the same bad breath and messy hair and hangnails, as a regular person. You have to be everything regular people aren’t. Where they fail, you have to go all the way. Be what people are too afraid to be. Become whom they admire. People shopping for a messiah want quality. Nobody is going to follow a loser. When it comes to choosing a savior, they won't settle for just a human being.
O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O Lord, endures forever - do not abandon the works of your hands.
When you suffer, you are being conformed to the image of Jesus. When you pray, you are being made holy in the image of Jesus. When you quietly serve a person in need, you are being shaped into the image of Jesus. When you generously give, your heart is being remade into the image of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
Ashlei was free to spout off how much she loved her savior because Jesus was not about to rear back and tell her He did not quite feel the same way, that He had died for the sins of the world just because it was fun and did not want things to be too serious. He was only thirty-three, after all, and might want to martyr himself for other people.
People who are seeking emotional support find it in the craft because instead of looking to a savior or prophet, we are taught to save ourselves.
People told Henry Ford he couldn't do it. People told Thomas Edison he couldn't do it. People told Andrew Carnegie he couldn't do it. People told Jesus Christ he couldn't do it. They all have in common they were told they couldn't do it and they all have something else in common, they all did it!
Rap music was a savior to me.
I am neither a rabbit nor a savior. I am simply Roberto Baggio.
I'm no savior, and I'm no Robin Hood.
When the Savior Himself was born, there were troubled times.
