It is one of the ironies of the ministry that the very man who works in God’s name is often hardest put to find time for God. The parents of Jesus lost him at church, and they were not the last ones to lose him there.
The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.
1 Timothy 1:15
The English Standard Version
We are God’s tenants here, and yet here he, our landlord, pays us rents–not yearly, nor quarterly, but hourly and quarterly; every minute he renews his mercy.
