MICHIGAN STADIUM

Roughly 7000 people die per day in America. At some level that is a low number considering there are over 300 million in America. But just think that every day 7000 people are finding out the reality of either eternal hell or eternal heaven. The number is higher when you consider those that die each day in other nations. According to wikipedia the number jumps to roughly 150,000 per day. The largest capacity football stadium in America holds 107,000. So if you ever see a broadcast of Michigan Stadium and it is packed in attendance, then that would still not convey the number of people who are either in Abraham's bosom or the flame's torment.

A PASSION FOR BEING USED

 Scripture says what motivates real men is a love for the truth; a contempt for error; and a passion for being used by God in the work of snatching people from the grip of the father of lies.

RECEIVE SOMETHING AGAIN AND AGAIN

Before it is called to do anything, the church is called to receive something-and not only once, but again and again: namely the announcement that even in its weakness, suffering, half-heartedness, and a legacy of faith stained by unfaithfulness, Christ is King. ~Michael Horton (The Gospel-Driven Life)

NONE OF OUR OWN

TITLE TO GLORY

“The heir of a great estate, while a child, thinks more of a few shillings in his pocket than of his inheritance. So a Christian is often more elated by some frame of heart than by his title to glory.” 

JOHN NEWTON
