Included in this week’s issue:
Our Responsibility for the Gospel
“We are not responsible to God for the souls that are saved, but we are responsible for the Gospel that is preached.” -Charles Spurgeon
The Continual Courage of a Man
My friend Dennis Rainey at Family Life wrote a very important book a few years ago, Stepping Up: A Call to Courageous Manhood. I want to share a quick quote on manhood from this book:
“The core of a man’s life should be his relationship with God. The man who walks humbly with God is motivated and powered to step up and assume the difficult responsibilities that come his way. You see, a courageous man is never off duty.”
The Weakness of Self-Confidence
The great G. K. Chesterton said “Complete self-confidence is not merely a sin; complete self-confidence is a weakness.” Chesterton, in a rare moment here, doesn’t go far enough. Complete self-confidence is self-illusion that no one around us actually believes.
