I type in the Marriott hotel in downtown Minneapolis. The Bible Quiz Fellowship National Tournament is underway. For those of you who “know” quizzing; yesterday I quizmastered ten quizzes and had two regular overtimes and one triple overtime! Never had one of those before in my almost-three-decades of doing this! Almost 400 students competing on 55 teams…Amazing stuff!
Read this at 5.45 this morning…Ponder, marvel, and practice your position:
To be in Christ – that is redemption; but for Christ to be in you – that is sanctification! To be in Christ – that makes you fit for heaven; but for Christ to be in you – that makes you fit for earth! To be in Christ – that changes your destination; but for Christ to be in you – that changes your destiny! The one makes heaven your home – the other makes this world His workshop.
W. Ian Thomas
We quiz all day today (Friday); seedings are posted tonight; and tomorrow eliminations begin until the champion is crowned Saturday evening.
Then the 28 students representing Family Life and the more-than-a-dozen adults who are giving their time to serve as coaches and chaperones board our charter bus and head back East. Your prayers are appreciated…
