The Magnificent Story.

Uncovering a Gospel of Beauty, Goodness & Truth.

Chapter 5 – Embracing Our Goodness


Beauty is “that which, when seen, pleases.”

Goodness is “that which, when experienced, benefits.”

Truth is “that which, when encountered, works.”

(Reality is what you bump into when you are wrong.)


“Be good.”

That’s a lot of pressure. Especially if you are a boy and there will be gross amounts of sugar.


What if we are not all that good?


What will God do to us?


What if we experience some epic fails

Rich Mullins

Hold Me Jesus

Surrender don’t come natural to me.

I’d rather fight you for something

I don’t really want

Than to take what you give that I need.

Hold Me Jesus


Will Jesus hold me only if I do good?


Will Jesus hold me if I’m not good?



John 21:15-19 (ESV)

15  When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” 16  He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” 17  He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. 18  Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you used to dress yourself and walk wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go.” 19  (This he said to show by what kind of death he was to glorify God.) And after saying this he said to him, “Follow me.” 


Following Jesus is good.
