Fresh Reminder of Gospel Truth

"The distinctive and crucial thing about Christian salvation is that Christ accomplished it decisively for us and outside of us and without our help. And when we put our faith in him we do not add to the sufficiency of what he accomplished in covering our sins and achieving the righteousness that counts as ours.

"...Make sure you see this most glorious of all truths: God took the record of all your sins...that made you a debtor to wrath, and instead of holding them up in front of your face and using them as the warrant to send you to hell, he put them in the palm of his Son’s hand and nailed them to the cross."

--John Piper at Passion '07

Not a whole lot is new. I'm just trying to survive my final semester at IWU and plan my wedding in the midst of traveling for His Instrument and Chorale, taking 17 hours, doing my senior project, and everything else. But things are going well. I'm still overwhelmed looking the syllabi I've received wondering how I'm going to make it through. All I know is that April can't get here quickly enough or September, for that matter! But I'll take one thing at a time. The wedding is now less than 8 months away! I can't wait!!!

Anyway, I'll shut up! What's new with you? I miss you in chorale!
