MORE PRECIOUS THAT WHAT?

Prayer and fasting day 1: so far so good…

Reading a book now by Justin Taylor.  He was telling a story of an 85 year old man (father of John Piper) who wrote something in his journal 1 month before he passed away.  This is what he said.

“I’ll soon be 86 but I feel strong and my health is good.  God has been exceedingly gracious and I am most unworthy of His matchless grace and patience.  The Lord is more precious to me the older I get.

I had to re-read, re-re-read and re-re-re-read the last line.  It hit me.  Kablam!

What a statement from an 85 year old man.

That is my prayer… my desire and heart… that Jesus would be more and more precious to me the older I get.

Prayer meeting starts in 30 minutes…
