What manner of love is this?

There is a mix of emotions in me. I don't know what is wrong with me? I'm upset. But, even now I can't help but also rise up to encourage in sanctification, those who are the least like myself.

Somebody somewhere prayed that even by his passing, Zane Hodges would glorify Jesus Christ. Is His answer to that prayer dwelling in me?

ALL praise and glory to our Savior!

I know how you feel. The body of Christ has lost a great man who touched the lives of many people around the world. There are a lot of people hurting today. Thanks for the respect you are giving to him.

Dearest Michele

Always thinking of you and praying for you.

Thankful for so many things.

Zane was a "master of these collections" "a well-driven-nail". He was a gatekeeper of the precious things of the Lord in the storehouse of YHWH. Zane's walk inspires all of us to seek only Him so that we too may be gatekeepers and speak words of wisdom.

Zane's words were often truly a goad...words given by the One Shepherd.

He was an example for many ...and I know by the grace of God that all who walk the sanctifying path can be an example for others to His glory.

Thank you for the song...what a blessing it was this morning.



Sanctification said...

Gary and Aletheia,

I cannot tell you how much I needed and am restored by your love. I know that for now I am setting aside my own gospel discussions and I don't want to be frustrating, or give the appearance that I do not care.

If everyone is foremost concerned about theology, then who is caring foremost about the relationships of those who write on theology? This was the gap I first saw and it is the gap that keeps me blogging.

I'm thankful for friends new and old.

Now when people are hurting is not the time for politics, and I think I might have turned it into such even if in the slightest way, in this post. Please I beg you all, to forgive me.

Gary, I read your comments on da Rosa's page, and I realize that I cannot realize how difficult it is to lose someone so instrumental in helping you find freedom in Christ. I don't remember where you shared that story of yours in the last month or so, but I remember it.

How can a person ever pay back the eternal value for this kind of service?

Aletheia, you are an angel, and I have put into practice some of your advice for my relationships, this last week or two. I am so glad to have you in my life.

With agape love,
