A video you should see.
Tim Challies is a blogger, author, book reviewer and teacher. I have admired and followed him for many years. He has an incredible gift of discernment. Tim is also able to communicate clearly and humbly.
I happened upon a video last week that time is in, and I wanted to share that. The video is titled Matt Chandler’s Radical Reminder that “God Is For God”. Something about the video has stuck with me all through the weekend, probably because it ties into another thread that’s been running in my life. God is for God is very close to the lesson that I am learning: God is the main character in His story. It’s not even my story. It’s His. I am not the hero, He is. I am not at the center of the story, God is. The Bible is not about me, it’s about God’s glory. His Glory in redeeming us. This is a foundational and basic understanding, but I think with Western culture being individualistic, that deep in my own thinking, a story must center around me and be about me for it to be entertaining and relatable.
There is so much study to be done here and I am excited to get into it.
This is the sermon that Tim speaks about in the video.
I’ll be posting the notes from this sermon to SRMN soon.
