I am preaching through the Gospel of Luke on Sunday mornings. I really intended for this to go for about a year. Well, I started last September, and I am now in chapter 12. And I'm just now really getting to the parables!
But each week is a humbling experience as I immerse myself into the words of Jesus afresh. As He speaks of concern for the poor, the sin of materialism, trusting in God -- I come under conviction over and over again. But I am enjoying the refiner's fire right now. It is a good time in my life for this to be happening.
Oh, Abba. I want with all my heart and more than I ever have wanted it before to be like Jesus. Do WHATEVER You have to do to bring out His image in me.
