it is by the power of this discovery of Christ, that faith is wrought

The day goes by according to the will of King Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus is the King of Glory. We read in the Epistle to the Hebrews, "But we see Jesus, who made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He by the grace of God might taste death for everyone. For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings" Hebrews 2:9.10.

I am down in the lower level reading Ralph Erskine's sermon THE SAVING SIGHT. Carol is right now skyping Beth and Louisa.

I plan to leave for the used books sale around 2:50 PM this afternoon.

I have been thinking about why I never became a professional writer. For one thing ever since the Lord saved me back in 1970 I have only wanted to be a soul winner or a gospel preacher. I have devoted my life to getting to know the Lord and telling others the Gospel. I also realized I did not want to be in the eye of the public. I did not want to be in the world to the degree it would interfere with my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. A writer has to sell himself or herself to the reading public. I have always wanted to live apart from the world. Not saying I have completely isolated myself from world since I read and listen to popular music. But I have control over what I will read or listen to. I would never want someone to have control over me who is worldly like book editors.

I do not know. There is a place for Christian writers in the secular world. I am just not one to devote myself to the craft of writing for a living.

So time goes by this afternoon.
