Truths we awaken to by study and discipline lead us to relevant spiritual excellence for this generation; and, those truths, quickened by the Spirit and developed in the heart, transfer to family members and all those the Lord places in our sphere of influence. Our lives are supernatural really because we carry the Lord with us as we go: “Our lives are a fragrance presented by Christ to God…to those who are being saved we are a life-giving perfume.”

Life-giving is our hope, our fervent expectation. And that hope is not ashamed but continues daily, increasing in the expectation that as God-vision and human-hope converge, the message we live, plain-spoken or eloquent, hits the mark and accomplishes the goal: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

Amen.
