The Main Thing

“In the midst of our various responsibilities and many possible areas of service in the kingdom of God, one overarching truth should motivate all our work and affect every part of who we are: Christ died for our sins. This…is the main thing. Nothing else—not even things that are biblical and honorable—are of equal or greater importance than this: God sent His Son to the cross to bear His wrath for sinners like you and me. If there’s anything in life we should be passionate about, it’s the gospel. And I don’t mean passionate only about sharing it with others; I mean passionate in thinking about the gospel, reflecting upon it, rejoicing in it, allowing it to color the way we look at the world and all of life.” CJ Mahaney, Living the Cross Centered Life

Hey Amy, just wanted to write you a quick note to tell you I was thinking about you. I miss you guys, and I havne't seen you all in months. I hear there will be a shower for Michelle coming soon and maybe I'll get to see you all then. Hope things are going good with your mother-in-law, and with you guys. Hoping to see you soon.
