Twenty One

I've been discipling Ed for the last year at Reading University and even on the farside of Europe, and now he's 21.

Happy Birthday mate! Landmarks like turning 21 aren't all that important, what matters is to keep running the race, testifying about God's grace.

This week has been a bit nostalgic for me. Seeing people back as CU Guests who started at Reading when I was a fresh-faced 21 year old Relay worker makes me think about where I've come from.

I can only hope that those last six years have been ministry in love, ministering God's gospel of grace to people. I've failed much, and I hope been used much. Enough of my navel-gazing, listen to Paul:
"...I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God..."
(Paul, Acts 20v24 - ESV)
