I love this version of In Christ Alone recorded by Owl City, and the great statement of faith written with it:

As I’m so often reminded what a priceless gift my life is, I ache with everything in me to make it count, so that when I finally cross the finish line, I’ll hear the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

To me, there is no greater reward.

Of course, all of this weighs heavily on the spiritual scale, so allow me to be completely honest and say none of it is intended to be “crammed down the throat,” if you will. That is not my intention. This is what I wholeheartedly believe, and to that belief, I remain steadfast until He returns or calls me home.

One thing is certain:

When He comes for His own, He will have no trouble recognizing me… because my banner will be clear.

  1. I miss everyone kicking off on a Saturday at three. It’s annoying that when watching MOTD on a Saturday night, and they show the premiership table, not everyone has played so you need to have a degree in mathematics just to work out who might be where at the end of the weekend after all the Sunday and Monday games.

    Whilst I agree premiership games are primarily changed because of mid-week fixtures, would it not be easier if ALL champions league matches were played on the same night? That would mean that all teams involved in midweek games would be able to play on the same day at the weekend, whereas at the moment you’d have Liverpool having a three day rest and Arsenal a four.
