Spreading the Word..
Jacqueline and I had a great weekend together… the church service on Sunday was very powerful. Here lately in Church, I can’t hardly make it through the song “In Christ Alone” without shedding a few tears… it’s beautiful to know that it is in Him that I have all that my heart is starving for… and it’s tragic how often I trade Him for lesser pursuits. I’m a long ways from being like Christ, but I can say with great praise to Him that He’s brought me a long ways and I’ve seen Him at work vividly on my heart. I too long to be able to stand on His promises and resist the lies of this world and the devil… As G.K. Chesterton once said, “There are an infinite number of angles at which one falls, only one at which he stands.” Christ is that way… I want to learn how to daily cling to Him. Monday always comes too soon, but with it comes the hope of another day and the opportunity to be loved by the Lord and to share that love with those around us.
Hope you have a great week this week… place your feet on the Solid Rock.
P.S. My dad and his wife are coming up to Indy to visit this coming weekend… a few more Texans to add to the Hoosier population. I’m looking forward to seeing them and getting to spend time with my father… his embrace and encouragement never get old to me.
"A tiny group of believers who have the gospel keep mumbling it over and over to themselves. Meanwhile, millions who have never heard it once fall into the flames of eternal hell without ever hearing the salvation story."
