it is possible to violate rule 1 while seeking the heart of rule 2
it is good to live the Gospel
At CC Szeged (Hungary) this past Sunday, I “gave homework”. Read Romans 14 and 1 Cor 8 and think about what these chapters are teaching and how it applies to living as a follower of Jesus.
It’s a lot to think about. But its really important. It is a recurring theme on this blog. For this writer believes that aside from getting the deal with Jesus worked out, there is no more important thing than human relationships. And too often, human relationships are screwed up because we are selfish. I know, cuz I am. We need to learn to put the other guys first.
From the last post you know I’ve read Muller but what you do not know is how his experienced renewed in me a sense of trust in the greatness and faithfulness of God.
But, there is a question that comes forth, what about all the teaching that exists on how to raise money and the systems that are in place for such?
How do we square this with Muller’s experience?
This is the question I am pondering.
A few months ago I had lunch with a friend and he mentioned George Muller. He then sent me a PDF (where is that file?) with portions of his writing. Last month, I saw Muller’s autobiography in Pastor Nemeth’s library and “borrowed” it (with his permission). This book has blown my mind. What an incredible story! Lamentations say “His mercy is new every morning, great is His faithfulness,” Muller’s story is an amazing illustration of this.
Get it, read it!
