In every dimension He won’t have anything less. You can’t bargain with Him. You can’t hold back. It is 100 percent or He will take the lame and the halt and the distressed and the debtors and the discontented who have nothing to lose but giving their all. That is the way it is. That is the tough side. Turn the coin over for the bright side: all He wants is you. The thing I fight as a preacher across this land is some inherited perfectionism out of Puritan New England. I have got friends all over the country who say, and it is admirable on the surface, “When I come to God, I’m going to live it.” They are going to be worth what they think they should be if they give themselves to God. If God demanded us all to be of the caliber of Jonathan or the rich young ruler it would eliminate some of us, wouldn’t it? But when I see Him build His Kingdom on these Adullamites and on those disciples, I say we all have a chance!

All He wants is you. All He wants is you 100 percent. The terms will never change. Bring your problems! Bring your faults! Bring your sins! Bring your doubts! Bring you!
