Our Captain Has Made A Way

We have a couple of weeks here to catch up if you’re behind, or to read the excellent book, Grow In Grace, by Sinclair Ferguson. Having read the first few chapters myself, I thought I might give you a taste of how good this book is:

Picture an army captain hacking his way through a jungle during a battle with guerrilla forces. He leads his men from danger to safety by first facing the dangers, impediments and tests himself. Similarly Jesus is the Captain of our salvation. He has tasted all of our experiences of temptation. He has gone further. He experienced them in their full strength, when they unleashed all their powers against him. Where we would stumble and fall, he has pressed on. He overcame temptation, conquered death and drew its sting. Now he beckons to us: “Follow me, the pathway of faith is safe for all of you to use!” (page 10)

Aren’t you grateful that we have such a Captain that has forged a way for us to follow? This journey would not be possible if He hadn’t cleared the road before us. What a Savior!

Note: Lisa Chin has several copies available in the bookstore for purchase. They are $8.

Tom and Debi have been sharing encouragements through their blogs for many years. Marriage, Reading God's Word and documenting family history is our focus. Growing in our relationship with the Lord is primary in all we say, write or do. We are grateful for all who desire to join us in the same endeavors.
