Way back in the day, during my Bible School training, a great man of God, Dr. John Mitchell, would say to students, “Are you falling more in love with the Savior?” He was famous for that question…more famous for his actual love of the Savior. I think Ken Davis is like John Mitchell. He knows how much he is loved by the Savior, he loves him back, and wants others to experience the same love. The following short video will lead you closer to this love. I hope, I pray you are encouraged.
I love the Constitutional Republic. I love what it actually is, not what it may be right now or what it may be moving toward. Still, I love its original intentions and its potential. And I love this version of the National Anthem. Rock on America.
Over many years, I have listened to the sermons of this man of God. Here’s a very brief introduction to his clarity of thought. I hope you will consider tuning in to his work from time to time. You can find all the info at www.tonyevans.org.
God the Father when he breaks his silence:
Mark 1:11 And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
The Father unleashing his glory:
Matthew 17:5 a bright cloud…a voice from the cloud, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
Jesus on why he would die:
John 14:31a “But that the world may know that I love the Father.”
It’s amazing! The transcendent, never created, always eternally there, infinite perfection of one God in three persons, when speaking of one another, say, “This is the one I love.” Perfect love. Agenda harmony love. Love that produces only the ultimate best.
When Jesus prayed before dying:
John 17:23c,d “that the world may know that you have sent me, and have loved them as you have loved me.”
What!? The Father loves the Son. The Son loves the Father. The Father loves his followers just as, even as, the same as he loves the One and Only Begotten Son!
More than amazing! The transcendent, eternal, infinite, perfect creator… above, beyond, and utterly other than his creation…in love chooses to be immanent, here, personally present with us.
Breathtaking…the love that God has for you.
