I Am Discovery with Aaron Prudler and Dan Hight.
“Is there not a cause?” – 1 Samuel 17:29
I AM DISCOVERY
I am not yet discovered
It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation.
– Romans 15:20 (niv)
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’” 16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. John 1:14-16 (nkjv)
I love that. “Full of grace and truth.” Not the balance between, but the full embodiment of. Jesus did not come to strike a balance between grace and truth. He brought the full measure of both. John had seen this firsthand. He had watched Jesus apply the full measure of grace and truth to each individual they encountered.
“full of grace and truth.”
Door number one? – Church of TRUTH.
Door number two? – Church of GRACE
Door number three? – Church of GRACE and TRUTH
Jesus said to a woman caught in adultery, “I don’t condemn you, now leave your life of sin.” Translated: “You’re a sinner. What you did is a sin. It was wrong. But I don’t condemn you. I’m not going to give you what you deserve. I’m extending to you exactly what you don’t deserve: grace.” Jesus didn’t try to balance grace and truth. He didn’t water down the law. He didn’t put a condition on grace. He gave her a full dose of both.
1. Just as I am, without one plea, But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bid’st me come to Thee, O Lamb of God, I come! I come!
2. Just as I am, and waiting not To rid my soul of one dark blot;
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
3. Just as I am, though tossed about With many a conflict, many a doubt;
Fightings within, and fears without, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
4. Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind; Sight, riches, healing of the mind;
Yes, all I need, in Thee to find, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
5. Just as I am, Thou wilt receive, Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
Because Thy promise I believe, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
6. Just as I am, Thy love unknown Has broken every barrier down;
Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
What a great day with our “trucker tribe”.
