It has been too long since I posted on here. SOOoooooo much has happened that it would take a few volumes to record so I wont bother. I will however recount what happened in the past few days up at the Deeper conference in ohio.
Deeper conference is put on by Living Waters, which is Ray Comforts ministry. For those not familiar with them they are a group dedicated to encouraging believers to go out and witness for Christ in a biblical way.
The conference they put on this year did not attract as many people as usual due to the fact that their speakers were not as high-profile as in past years. But in spite of this the messages were all still spot-on and very good. Christ was exalted thru every message.
One teaching that I would especially urge every christian to get and listen to was ‘Imputation’ preached by R. W. Glenn. He began by explaining the doctrine of the imputation of our sins to Christ on the cross then briefly explained how this doctrine has been challenged in the recent years thru the New Perspectives on Paul movement. But then he turned to the greatest challenge to this doctrine and that was how we so often will think and act as if we need to establish our own righteousness as opposed to resting in Christ’s finished work. He accomplished it. There is no reason for us to beat up on ourselves after failing. If we think that we are somehow making up for our failure by grinding on ourselves it is a questioning the sufficiency of Christ’s work and a lifting up of our own righteousness to deal with our sin which is a challenge to God’s holiness. Listen to the message.
Ever year directly after Deeper there is an event called the five hundred. It is meant to get the attendee’s of the conference out on the street to witness together. This year we hit Oktoberfest which attracts hundreds of thousands of partiers. We had over two hundred believers out there doing one on ones as well as preaching. There were enough of us to keep eight preachers going simultaneously throughout the event. I have never been out preaching the gospel with so many and was really encouraged thru it all.
The public proclamation of the Lordship of Christ and man’s sin in the light of His holiness!!! Word!!
Well, I pray God is blessing you as He is me. Rest in His finished work while pressing on to give Him glory. May He be exalted in the eyes of men!!!
All for the King!!!
