As I prepare the notes to teach my class on "The History of Christianity," I am watching the coverage of the dedication of the newest Smithsonian, the African American Museum, and my heart is full. I marvel at how God continues to hold and keep. . . How Christianity has survived, in spite of early and recent persecution; how we, as a people, have survived through early and recent persecution. All, for such as time as this.
There is a reason for your life. Marvel at what God is doing. Take time to go back over your life, and see just how God has kept you, grew you, and is keeping you and growing you. Marvel for this day in your life. There is so much more in store for you. Listen and follow. Watch and obey. enough for now.
