Conferences, homework, youth group, and journal

Sorry for the infrequent posts. Last week I was in Louisville, KY for the Together For the Gospel conference. Good stuff! For a rundown of the conference go here. Last night was my first youth group back. Taught on Ephesians 2:11-22 and titled my sermon "God's immigration policy" talking about what it takes to become a citizen of heaven. Perhaps I'll post more on that later. Now it's time to hit the books. a week and a half until this semester is over. In hindsight I dont think I will take 18.5 units again.

Once school gets out I will be posting more regularly and in depth. For now I leave you with a recent entry from my quasi-daily journal.

I’m doing my long since due chapter titles on the Psalms and am struck by how many are prayer for protection against the persecution of the wicked. Then I realize that there is no one who wants to kill me, I am on the run from no one, no one is angry with me. And that’s a problem because there are plenty of people angry at God. Lord help me to regain my boldness, help me to break out of this addiction of comfort and complacency. I want to be dangerous. I want your enemies. I want your protection. Help me to need it.



by His grace, for His glory
