adress to the unconverted young

looking at death: I’m not sure what the mortality rate for young people is. But as far as I know, you may not live another day. I ask you, from my heart, where do you think you’re going? I know many of you are admittedly non-converted. Nor would I push a sinners prayer upon you before God’s plan for comes to fruition. Yes, I believe God has a plan for you! I have no idea what it may be. But I believe with all my heart that there is a prayer for you, and I pray that it is that you would come to Jesus at a young age. I pray you will find peace. Yes, I know you have not peace. You may feel a false contentment with the world, but deep down in side, you r soul will not find rest. Not outside of Christ.

You are in the most important time of your life. It is now that shapes what kind of adults you’ll be. I prayer that these years would not be wasted. My friends, I must say that I love you. Words will not describe how much I feel for your souls. Especially those who I know. When I think of, while I’m all alone in the evenings, I cannot help but be overwhelmed with a burning desire for your souls. But no, the desire is not mine. I am Convinced it is all the work of Christ. I now urge you, turn to Christ! Only in him is peace.

I have apologies also. It is easier tenfold to say these things on a blog as in person. But I ought to make the effort. I ought to let love drive me on. I pray that I may be given more chances to be with you, especially in a low distraction environment. You are continually in my prayers.

“Come unto you, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:38-39

rutherford’s weekly turn: I find crosses Christ’s carved work that he marketh out for us, an that with crosses he figureth and portrayeth us to his own image, cutting away pieces of our ill and corruption. Lord cut, Lord carve, Lord wound, Lord do anything that may perfect the Father’s image in us, and make us meet for glory.

a look at the future: I will probably post some thoughts on the movies Beyond the Gates and Hotel Rwanda. I will continue the exposition of course. Coming very soon, I will put up a birthday post on Hannah, three days later my Dad, an done day later, yours truly. I will probably end up writing a review of Third Day’s Revelation project when I get it. I will of course jot down any thoughts I have in between. I will also be posting my thoughts on the first two instalments of the infamous Inheritance Trilogy (Eragon & Eldest). what else?… that may be it. I might want to do a petition for Malachi to put his site back up. J 😉

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
