To both danger and beauty, then, friends: are we paying attention?
We cannot ensure the salvation of anyone—but we can know that we are doing our part to love those given us by God and to defend his holy honor in a realm that despises it.
What Christ opens no man can shut; what Christ shuts, no man can open.
But for all who are in Christ, who are truly His, we can say this with utter confidence: the old has gone, and the new has come.
The Inklings are no more, but their dream has not died.
Whether anyone else sees it or not, the Father loves it when earthly fathers image his goodness and grace, and provide for their family, and lead their family spiritually, and protect their wife and children.
