Knowing God June 19, 2007

Lar,

House projects do take a lot of attention and energy don’t they? I love them though! The picture of redemption really is sweet. After all, God takes beat up dudes like ourselves and works (over the long haul) to make us useful and beautiful in His kingdom. I am hoping my back steps can serve as a picture of that soon. Maybe I will write on that sometime later. For now, here is another quote from J.I. Packer, one that expresses my burden to a ‘T’.

“From current Christian publications, you might think that the most vital issue for any real of would-be Christian in the world today is church union, or social witness, or dialogue with other Christians and other faiths, or refuting this of that ism, or developing a Christian philosophy and culture, or what have you. But our line of study makes the present-day concentration on these things look like a gigantic conspiracy of misdirection. Of course, it is not that; the isues themselves are real and must be dealth with in their place. But it is tragic that, in paying attention to them, so many in our day seem to have been distracted from what was, is, and always will be the true priority for every human being–that is, learning to know God in Christ.”

May the Lord grant us the grace to spend the rest of our lives focused on the main thing–Himself.

Seeking Him with you,
Joe
