From the blog this week- Light Has Pierced the Darkness: A Poem
“My understanding of the New Testament is that Jesus promised he would return, and that in this returning, he would do a final rescue for those who are trusting him and a final judgment for those who are not believing in him. I don’t think there are two comings of Christ in the future, but only one.”
“An inactive member is one of the sheep that has gone astray and requires the shepherd to leave the ninety-nine to go after the one.”
“I begin with a brief telling of his life, because for Newton, his life was the clearest testimony to the heartbreaking mercy of God he ever saw. His remembrance of his own salvation was one of the deepest roots of his habitual tenderness. He could not get over the wonder of his own rescue by sheer, triumphant grace.”
“What makes deep relationships so uncommon and challenging today? Why do we so rarely walk out the front door, enter another human being’s home, and enjoy a real, personal, in-the-flesh conversation?”
