Carrying Life for Others . . .

I often feel like I am a lousy Christian. I try to follow the teachings of Jesus and I try to be obedient in all the little corners of my life.

Yet, I feel like I do not measure up to the “high calling of Christ” (Phil. 3.14).

One of the things that trips me up the most as a Christian is the need to serve others. I know I should. I think I do. I try my best.

I often feel, though, that I just do not have the whole picture.

I watched Laurie Vanderpool hold a severely disabled young boy in her arms and proclaim that one day he would run and jump and turn somersaults.

She had me at the way she smothered him with hugs and kisses. Her love was stunningly holy and absolute.

I wanted to change my life at that exact moment.

People Do Amazing Things: My Students

I have been fortunate to spend my life working with people. In the last two weeks I have highlighted two of those people.

You can read about Mandy Rapson, a young women dedicating her life to at-risk youth in South Africa, or Dr. Jorge Ponce, a pastor and physician helping those in need in Honduras through serving as a pastor, physician, and entrepreneur. They will inspire you.

Today, I want to tell you about just a few of the amazing young men and women I have the privilege to work with in one corner of my life. More and more, I am convinced they are the missing pieces of the puzzle of our future.
