“But 2020 will not be wasted because God does not waste experiences. If you have been united to Christ, then there is not one moment of 2020 that you can describe as worthless. The mundane, the disappointing, the hard, the boring, the encouraging, the heartbreaking – God won’t squander a second of it. We may not know what good God will bring from 2020 but we can trust our heavenly Father to use it for his glory and to make us more like Christ.”
“Here’s what I am learning. Paul asks me to slay sin, a theme that John Owen would later riff off as he famously quipped, “Be killing sin or sin will be killing you,” and I thought I was. But I was wrong.
Burying sin is not the same as killing it.”
“Rather than asking, “am I elect?”, the question should be, do I believe Jesus died for me? Do I believe his sacrifice is sufficient to save? If the answer is no, then believe today. Turn away from your sin and trust in Christ today. Start praying for the Spirit to enable you to kill sin habits and flee temptation right now.”
