1,000 in Central New York

Around 1,000 people crammed into the auditorium in Farmington, in rural central New York, last night for the public meeting associated with a Calvary Chapel pastors’ regional conference. I am one of the keynote speakers.

I received many great comments. One young man said he is a non-Christian and is tired of going to Christian meetings and hearing the same old stuff.  He said what he heard last night is the first time he had heard a Christian talk that gave answers and logical thinking. We had a great discussion, and I challenged him concerning his salvation.

Here are some photographs of the evening:

Devotion

They changed their glory into the similitude of an ox

(Psalm 106:19-20)  They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image. Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eats grass.

We are made to glory in something; everyone has a glory of what they delight in and worship—our glory is the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
