“If all men count with you, but none too much”–Kipling. This coming Sunday I have asked Stephen if we could sing “In Christ Alone”. It is a new song–representative of the very meaningful hymn/choruses that are being written in our day. I’m attracted to it Sunday because we are reading the story of Micaiah (1 Kings 22). Like all of us, Micaiah came to a point of having to stand for Christ, ALONE. If Christ is all we have theologically, He will, at times, be all we have experientially. Having Him ONLY, we will be LONELY. As a Pastor, it has been a hard lesson to learn–listen to the people, but not too much, God more. Maybe that is the reason that Jesus always got up early to go pray by Himself. (Mark 1:35) He wanted to hear from the Father before he heard from everyone else. ” In Christ alone, my hope is found”. I will look for you on Sunday.
