I spoke last week at a College Thing I love doing called the Source.
They are talking about the Great Commission, and I wanted to try to encourage them about the mundane beauty of God’s other commands (which are, incidentally, referenced in the Great Commission.
Right before I left to go speak I went on a very short walk with Caroline and Julia.
It was short for two reasons: one, we started at 7:04PM and their bedtime is around 7:15. Two, right after Caroline told me the sky looked like Strawberry Applesause (you can judge), Julia ate a leaf and then threw it up. Then made herself throw up the rest of her popsicle. Then she was fine.
I desperately need God to save me from death – through his Son Jesus as a propitiation for my sins. I also need the passion and excitement of the Great Commission – GO! And, I need a savior who also walks with me moment by moment. When we eat leaves and actually pay attention to a sunset.
