Unbreakable Assurance

The obedience of the Son…stands behind the assurance that those whom the Father has given to the Son will be preserved to the end, and will be resurrected on the last day. In other words, if any of them failed to achieve this goal, it would be the Son’s everlasting shame: it would mean either that he was incapable of performing what the Father willed him to do, or that he was flagrantly disobedient to his Father. Both alternatives are unthinkable, not because he never experienced the temptation to disobey, but because succumbing to the temptation, however acute that temptation might be, was itself unthinkable to him.    D.A. Carson.

Coming Soon

Today at the coffee shop there was a sign for superbowl cookies.  Of course, the big game is coming soon.  I can almost taste the nachos.  I can imagine the laughter and fun of friends in our house, around our table, in front of our television.

Really, the game is an excuse to be with friends,  because superbowls are often far from super.  I don’t know if it’s the big stage or the big anticipation, but they don’t seem to deliver even mid-season level….super-ness.

But, for some reason, we still look forward to superbowl Sunday.  For some reason, we keep wanting to look forward.  I think its because we were made to look forward, to anticipate, to hope for astonishing visions of transcendence. We long for awe.

Coffee shops sell superbowl cookies named for an inevitably forgettable event because human beings are hardwired to want something super.   We are all designed to be overwhelmed by greatness.  We want it so much we still hope the superbowl will deliver. But only one event will deliver the awe we want to see.

May the Lord return soon, so that we can see what we long to see, what we want to see.

Come Lord Jesus, amaze us with yourself.

 

 

Evangelism!

We all need encouragement when it comes to evangelism. I went to school at a Baptist Bible College in Dallas and each week we were encouraged to go out on our lunch breaks or after class and prayerfully look for opportunities to share the gospel with those in our community. Frequently, our professors led us outside in groups to do this together. No matter how many times I did this, I was intimidated each and every time. Similarly, during my time as a staff member at Covenant Fellowship Church (Glen Mills, PA), Jim Donohue led the charge in regularly exhorting us and leading us out to share the gospel with those in our community. And every time I did this I was fearful! But God met me every single time.

I thank God for gospel men and women whose hearts ache to see the gospel reach the lost. I want me heart to beat that way more and more. And so I am grateful that my friend, Jim Donohue, has put together a free ebook on evangelism to share with us. Jon and I want to encourage you to download this wonderful resource (free of charge!) and consider reading it together as a family. You will find that it is not a challenging read, though it may challenge your soul!

However you choose to use it, may the Spirit of the Lord fill you as you consider how God might use you to share His love with the people He has placed in your life.
