Dluxe’s World: Wrap-up: Revolution in World Missions (Yohannon)

Here’s some of what what Brian has to say after reading the above-mentioned book. I’m so thankful for a husband who thinks like this. I could be condemned to live my days with a man obsessed with ladder-climbing and overtime, schmoozing and keeping-up-with-the-Joneses. Instead, God gave me an honest man with his priorities right.

I increasingly recognize how as a young man I never really valued the right things. Around the time our son was born, I started to go through a period of change. What is really important to me? Answer: My God and my family. If that’s really true, am I living in a way that would reflect that? If my hope is outside of this world, does my lifestyle reflect that or am I simply moving in the current of a world gone wrong?

I don’t want to live a life that is comfortable but eternally insiginificant. I don’t want to live so I can get old and become increasingly useless. I don’t want to stand before God one day and point to a earthly mansion as the symbol of my life’s work.

I want to live a life that sacrifices much to love much. I want to live a life that displays a hope in what’s coming, not what’s here. I want to live a live that cries out that “to live is Christ, and to die is gain”. I want a crown for my King’s glory, not a nice lawn for my own.

I love this man! This is what I married you for, Hon. 🙂 Well… this and your sexy sax-playing abilities.

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
