The Courage to Encourage
November 4, 2012
TODAY'S BIBLE READING:
Not Chicken Littles I am saying that Christians by their nature cannot be Chicken Littles. It’s something to do with our eschatology. Our view of history is that it started somewhere good, fell and, through God’s intervention, is in the process of returning to something even better. There may be pain in the meantime, disappointments, temporary setbacks, but the movement of world history is on the side of Christ the King. It’s time to take our courage in both hands and speak a message of encouragement. ************** The above article was written for Evangelicals Now and published in their news publication for November 2012.]]>
