the deal

Here's my new plan of action so that you can be ready for my postings. On Mondays (Sunday nights) and Fridays (Thursday nights) I will be posting light theology and personal stuff. On Thursdays (Wednesday nights) I'll probably delve a bit deeper into things. So, now that you know, you can be prepared to read stuff on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. I hope you like the new system. It seems much better to me.


This morning I preached my first of two sermons while Mark (my senior pastor) is on vacation with his wife. Pray for them both. His wife has ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) so they are spending some quality time on vacation before things get too bad.

I encourage you to spend some time meditating on 2 Corinthians 5:21 today. A good portion of my talk today was on the transfer of our sin to Christ and that he literally became sin. He was your worst (and my worst) sin. He had to deal with being a lustful pervert, a greedy overlord and a self-righteous jerk. He had to deal with the guilt of those sins and the pain of bearing them. And then he had to die--because he loved us.

How great is the love that comes to us. Spend some time thanking him for his sacrifice and have a great few days.
