Resolved, to embrace Christ’s victory over sin and death and to fight, by that power, ceaselessly against the sin and error in my own life.
This post is part of the Resolved series: a collection of 21 personal resolutions that I’m writing/preaching to myself.
If you’d like a little more information, please visit this introduction to the Resolved series.
Resolved, to humbly submit to God’s truth in all things; not because it will make Him love me, but because He already does.
As I stood by the ocean this past weekend, I couldn’t stop thinking about just how incredibly vast it is. There are 332 million cubic miles of water on the Earth. That’s 36.6 sextillion gallons. If sextillion isn’t a readily accessible number, think of 1000 trillions.
Still lost in the magnitude? That’s ok. There is nothing I can do to help you wrap your head around the sheer volume of water contained on the surface of this planet. It’s an unfathomable quantity.
We must accept the fact that we aren’t able to comprehend it.
I’m a few days late to the party on this one, but I’ve found myself convicted about this issue. My friend Justin wrote a blog on Bin Laden’s death yesterday and it finally kicked me over the fence.
I’m not gonna try and tell you how to feel about any of this, but here’s where I’m at.
There are a large number of professing Christians out there openly rejoicing in the fact that Osama Bin Laden got what he “deserved” and is presently burning in Hell. They’re posting all over the internet, waving signs, throwing parties, and carrying on.
I love you, but need you to understand that you’re failing miserably as leaders.
