Early this AM (and when you are on PDT and you fly to EDT, 5AM is actually 2AM, so the term “early” takes on new meaning) I got up so I could head up to the graduation ceremonies of a small Christian school in upstate New York. It was an honor to speak, if only briefly, at the graduation.
So I’m back on the Island now, getting ready to preach three times tomorrow (yes, believe it or not, the calendar page is up-to-date). I’m especially looking forward to tomorrow evening’s sermon on the New Covenant. If everyone would just take Hebrews seriously, we would have a much more united front in proclaiming the perfection of Christ as Savior. The intrusion of simple tradition has led to utterly unnecessary division.
