    Nicely put…I knew from the first line where this was going…but I read them all anyway…because I need to be reminded of things like this all the time. Relationships cant save you…drums cant save you, music cant save you, being comfortable cant save you, having all your bills paid cant save you, feeling like everything is ‘right with the world’ wont save you.
    Jesus saves…the light of the world. I love that He says He comes to bring life…because without Him…we dont have it…we’re walking around dead. Unless he’s brought life to us…we dont have life. Pretty thankful that I have life.
    Great post. Glad Im finally catching back up with your blog…youre super talented bro.
