I’m visiting my favorite no. 2 boy in Gainesville this week. We went to see Les Miserables on Sunday. It was really good. The thing I loved most about the film is the way the Lord reaches Jean Valjean. Did the priest give him a simple presentation of the Gospel? No, because the Gospel is SO much deeper than a formula. It’s more than simple words can convey. It’s about love, forgiveness, mercy, and surrender. It’s about coming alongside a person in relationship and discipling. Doing this missionary life has led me to a deeper understanding of how much God loves His creation. I realize more than ever how important it is to live the Gospel, not just talk about it. I pray I’m holding up my end well.
