Nothing good inside anyways.
The leftovers?

Sounds dull, lifeless, even depressing doesn’t it?

Yet, that’s exactly how Jesus wants us in order that we can be filled to the brim with Him.

Filled with His goodness.
The fullness of Christ’s Spirit inside.
The outcome?
Pure, unadulterated love.

Love so poignantly sweet like costly perfume that we, like Mary Magdalene, can pour out over the feet of Christ as we reach out our hands and our love.

Something so beautiful and eternal birthed out of the emptiness of nothing.

That’s the beauty of our Savior’s redemption!
That’s just like God, isn’t it?
