I think I might start up a new weekly column devoted to sharing some wise words and quotes from Christian authors, preachers, and leaders from past and present. These past few days have been a great joy for me to really soak in fabulous, inspiring words from Christian books I read. So I might as well share some interesting treasures I find from time to time, starting with these two:

“Our worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s grace.” – Jerry Bridges, The Discipline of Grace

“A Christianity that does not have as its primary focus the deepening of passions for God is a false Christianity, no matter how zealously it seeks conversions or how forcefully it advocates righteous behavior.” – J.D. Greear, Gospel

For those living in Los Angeles, Harvest is hosting an evangelistic event at Dodger Stadium on the weekend of September 8th and 9th. This will be a great opportunity to bring unbelieving friends and family to not only hear some great Christian music, but to listen to an always riveting and impactful gospel message from speaker Greg Laurie. Let us pray for the salvation of thousands of souls in Los Angeles this weekend. Liberal cities like Los Angeles can sure use all the help it can get.

Harvest L.A. is also looking for Follow-Up Workers. These are people who follow-up with new converts/professions of faith in the baseball field and plug them into healthy Bible churches, if not check on their understanding to see if they really did come to saving faith or not. The sign-up is here: http://www.harvest.org/crusades/2012/los-angeles/

“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” – Luke 10:2 (NASB)
