Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets…(Ephesians 2:20)
We’re so silly.
We, as a society, have this tendency to throw out and disregard anything that we deem “old.”
It’s a pride thing, really. We find it threatening to think that something may have been excellent before we ever even existed. It’s just so hard to imagine that some things might have been just dandy-fine without our input.
So, we go for new-new, shiny-shiny.
When it comes to theology, I mostly go old school.
Take a moment this morning to thank God for those who have gone before us, who lived and taught and sacrificed and suffered and even died for the sake of the Gospel, so that you and I can read pithy devotions on our mobile devices. Some of the names are famous, and some we’ll never know this side of glory, but they all have served to bring Truth to a lost and dying world.
And just maybe, if the Lord tarries, our names will one day be on that list.
Happy Tuesday, Beloved.
