Destinations

August 20, 2012

I’m not fond of the word sanctification. It is a word like marathon, reminding me of something I’ll never do. I also realize that we are called to be sanctified. I’m called to work on running my “marathon.” Here Tim Challies reminds us that  sanctification is often best learned in community. No doubt he’s right.

This life is about waiting. We’re always waiting for something, or rather, for many things. This time of waiting is  trying. Putting this together, it is safe to say that we’re always being tried. Here Patrick Schreiner expresses his thoughts as his mother recovers from a significant bicycle accident. He helps us think about truth that helps us wait.

“The Apostle: The Life of Paul” is free for Kindle and Nook. Also, Dallas Willard’s “Renovation of the Heart” is free for Kindle. I don’t recommend Willard but many others do. It is hard to find grace in Willard’s writings.

    Guess dedicated pastors need a little levity now and again.
