No Going Back

Today we signed a contract on our house. If everything goes as planned, we'll be moving out at the end of October. For the first time it feels like we are matching our words of commitment to God with our deeds. For the record: God is good; all the time. We got more than we asked for, and God gave us His peace. How real Philippians 4:6-7 have been to us this past 2 weeks:

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


The DVDs for my first classes -- Basic Evangelism and Baptist History -- arrived yesterday. I guess that means life now goes from just really busy to incredibly busy. Despite the demands on my time, I'm really looking forward to these classes, particularly the Evangelism class. I know I don't do a very good job sharing my faith with others, and I want to do better. I listened to the first Evangelism lecture last night, and Dr. Reid had a great quote -- our passion for witnessing comes out of our love for Christ. The logical conclusion to this assertion is that few disciples of Christ (myself included) love Him much. God give me a love for you, a love that will tell others about You!
