“If the Lord of hosts had not left us a few survivors, we should have been like Sodom, and become like Gomorrah.” Isaiah 1:9
Did you notice how God intervened this week?
The Church of Jesus Christ did not go completely apostate.
The Gospel Coalition did not disown its Confessional Statement.
Acts 29 did not repudiate church planting.
Together For The Gospel did not fragment in mutual recriminations. Sovereign Grace Ministries did not deny the new birth.
And I did not walk away from Jesus.
We all sinned this week, and a lot. No surprise there.
After all, original sin means our wills are unfree.
But we held fast to Jesus our Savior, and for a whole week.
Truly, the age of miracles is not over.
