“If the Lord of hosts had not left us a few survivors, we should have been like Sodom, and become like Gomorrah.” Isaiah 1:9

Did you notice how God intervened this past week?  Did you see the miracle?  The Church of Jesus Christ did not go completely apostate.  The Gospel Coalition did not disown its Confessional Statement.  Acts 29 did not repudiate church planting.  Together For The Gospel did not fragment in mutual recriminations.  I did not walk away from Jesus.

We all sinned last week, and a lot.  No surprise there.  But we held fast to Jesus our Savior, and for a whole week.

Truly, the age of miracles is not over.

      Great to hear from you, Steve. We miss your kids! We are suffering a serious case of Prielozny-withdrawal.

      Can’t wait to meet Jude.

      God bless.
