>The Peril of Sincerity

>Woke up early this day, rolled around bed, did a lot of praying, especially for the man who committed his life to Christ in my office yesterday…and for a host of other matters. Burdened for “sincere” religious people, who sincerely believe they are okay with God, but display no evidence of salvation other than by being what the world calls “good.” Matthew 7.22ff remains the most frightening passage of scripture.

Then fired up the computer and found this:

 On this Saturday (while I was in bed I thought of the rather bizarre book titled “Silence of the Lambs,” and that prompted me to think that this “in-between-dash” (between Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday) could be called “The Silence of The Lamb.”

Praying much that Spirit of God would honor His Word cast forth as pastors seize the moment to present the Gospel.

Oh, and on a personal note, this Resurrection Day will be even more special than usual for Jane and I, as Jacob (who turns 8 April 10) will be baptized during morning worship.

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
