For friend's brother's death
« on: June 17, 2011, 03:16:57 PM »
This morning, I learned that one of my best friends lost his older brother to suicide either last night or this morning. Please pray for the repose of his soul and for his surviving family.

Authentic zeal is not directed towards anything but union in Christ, or against anything but our own fallenness.

Lord have mercy
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
