Humility

“True humility does not know that it is humble. If it did, it would be proud from the contemplation of so fine a virtue.”
― Martin Luther

Becoming

“This life therefore is not righteousness, but growth in righteousness, not health, but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road. All does not yet gleam in glory, but all is being purified.”
― Martin Luther

New Life for All That Jesus Asks

My second book, All That Jesus Asks, has always been No. 1 in my heart. Writing this book revolutionized my spiritual life and helped me get to know Jesus in a new way. Quite a few people were taken with the concept of exploring the nearly 300 questions asked by Jesus in the New Testament, and eventually ATJA was translated into Indonesian.

After disappointing sales, however, the publisher, Baker, took ATJA out of print and eventually returned all rights to the printed work to me. I bought up Baker’s remaining stock at a discount and someday soon hope to republish the book myself (perhaps this year).

Yesterday, I’m grateful and thrilled to report, I signed a contract authorizing the Kyujang Publishing Company in Seoul to translate and publish All That Jesus Asks into the Korean language. The process should take about 18 months, and then this book will be available to the great churches and Christians of Korea. I’m praying they will be blessed and encouraged.

I know I am. Thank you, Lord.

Counterintuitive Encouragement to Love Those around You

David Sanford’s enthusiasm for others, and passion for his Lord, are infectious. David brings them both together in this unique, non-guilt-inducing page-turner of a book. If you are looking for counterintuitive encouragement to love those around you with the good news of Jesus (and even if you’re not), this is the book you’ve been waiting for. If you let it, this book will change your life—and the lives of those precious and quirky image-bearers all around you.

Do one thing well rather than two things poorly.

Embroiled

For all of you folks who think there’s nothing wrong with what Trump is doing and apparently are only bothered by people like me who point out Trump’s growing list of self-inflicted wounds, consider this:

More than A FOURTH of Trump’s first 100 days are over. What has he actually accomplished so far, other than get embroiled in one sideshow after another? Time is very, very short, and he will FAIL if he doesn’t keep focused on the tasks at hand.

I say this as someone who very much wants him to succeed in the good things he has promised. If you can’t handle some constructive criticism of Trump without blaming the Democrats, or people like me, you’re as sauced as they are.

Deal with it.

Music
