A personal greeting to you all!
Sue and I have lived on the academic calendar for so long, September means the start of a new year. Not sure what January 1 is all about! This means the beginning of a new year of “Laying it Down.” I am eager to be back with you.
It has been a good summer break, lots of travel and some good vacation. It has come to a close with the death of Sue’s 97 yr. old mom.
Here is what is coming beginning later this week. For the next couple of months we will be exploring three enemies of healthy living and how the gospel brings good news to each one. Here are the three:
- The most dangerous and unhealthy circumstance we can find ourselves in – it is one we naturally and intentional move toward. Why? Because we are responding to:
- The most dangerous emotion. It is an emotion that, unfortunately, has affected everyone. It is the one that always moves us to the most dangerous place and gives birth to:
- The most fearful and controlling emotion.
You will be surprised where and how we find these playing out in the Scriptures and with the incredible power they hold. Yet without understanding these circumstances and emotions, we fail to understand how God comes to our rescue with the Gospel and sets us free.
I will also be altering the weekly quotes from just quotes about the gospel to also include quotes about being a gospel leader. You will want to check these out as well.
If you have not subscribed to receive a short automatic notice in your email alerting you to a new weekly blog post, this would be a great time to do so. And like last year, I will periodically have special content for those who have subscribed. All you need to do is add your email and first name to the boxes above. It’s that simple.
Back with you in just a few days to start this journey.
