Windy Gap & The Glory of Christ

Today our school leaves for its annual Windy Gap retreat. We take over 200 high students to the mountains for a mid-week retreat...its incredible. This year, our speaker is Austin Rammell, and our music is led by the Vias. This year, I'm specifically praying that we would see Christ clearly. As you read through this, pray for our students on this trip.

“By his cross, divine holiness and justice were exalted, and through his triumph, grace and mercy are poured out to the full. In glorious thoughts of this let my soul live, and in believing it let my soul die. And let the present wonder of this glory make way for the eternal enjoyment of it in it’s beauty and fullness…

One view of Christ’s glory by faith will scatter all the fears, answer all the objections and disperse all the depressions of the poor, tempted, doubting souls. To all believers it is an anchor which they may cast within the veil, to hold them firm and steadfast in all trials, storms and temptations, both in life and in death.”

- John Owen, The Glory of Christ (p 80-81)
