On the Road - Chicago

Well, my friend Jason just reminded me that I have been slacking up lately on the blog. Truth is, I have had lots on my mind and little time to unlock it. I'm on the road with my friend Jason Seales in Chicago. We're here for the "Entrusted with the Gospel" conference with The Gospel Coalition. It'll be three days based on the subject of being a faithful steward of the gospel. I'm looking forward to a great lineup featuring Tim Keller, Mark Driscoll, John Piper, and Bryan Chapell. It will be a refreshing conference.

It was a long ride today from Birmingham to Chicago. However, it went pretty fast and was filled with lots of laughs between me and my young friend. At one point, Jason tried some hot and spicy Chex Mix and accidentally inhaled it up his nose causing a painful burn.

Looking forward to a great three days here at the conference and a Cubs game Wednesday night. You can follow a live webcast of the conference here.

Go Barefoot!

Just saw this on the internet. It's about a campaign tomorrow to raise awareness of how many children around the world don't have shoes. I'm thinking about going barefoot, will you?

He Is Risen!

Hear the heart of heaven beating, "Jesus Saves. Jesus saves."
And the hush of mercy breathing, "Jesus Saves. Jesus saves."
Hear the host of angels sing, "Glory to the Newborn King."
And the sounding joy repeating, "Jesus saves."

See the humblest hearts adore Him. "Jesus saves. Jesus saves."
And the wisest bow before Him. "Jesus saves. Jesus saves."
See the sky alive with praise, melting darkness in its place
There is life forevermore, "Jesus saves. Jesus saves."

He will live our sorrow sharing, "Jesus saves. Jesus saves."
He will die our burden bearing, "Jesus saves. Jesus saves."
"It is done!" will shout the cross, Christ has paid redemption's cost!
While the empty tomb's declaring, "Jesus saves."

Freedom's calling, chains are falling, hope is dawning bright and true.
Day is breaking, night is quaking, God is making all things new.
"Jesus saves."

Oh to grace, how great a debtor! "Jesus saves. Jesus saves."
All the saints who shout together. "I know that Jesus saves."
Rising us so vast and strong lifting up salvation's song,
The redeemed will sing forever, the redeemed will sing forever, the redeemed will sing forever, "Jesus saves."
"Jesus saves."
