Book recommendation …George Whitefield

The Evangelistic Zeal of: George Whitefield – by Steven J. Lawson.

“On the morning of October 23, 1740, in a field of Kensington Parish, near what is today Berlin, Connecticut, a colonial farmer named Nathan Cole received the news that the great evangelist George Whitefield would be preaching in the nearby city of Middletown. Immediately, he dropped his tools and ran to his house, hastily grabbing his wife and saddling his horse, and rushed to the announced site of Whitefield‘s meeting twelve miles away. Cole and his wife alternated between riding and running to Middletown, for he simply must be present to hear this celebrated preacher. … Eager to hear Whitefield preach … Cole stood amid the crowd [est. 4000 +] and watched the evangelist make his appearance. … He described Whitefield as ‘a young, slim, slender youth before thousands of people, and with bold undaunted countenance.’ The talk circulating among the great crowd was, ‘God was with him everywhere.'” [91-92]

I highly recommend this book by Lawson in his “A Long Line of Godly Men Profile” series.

George Whitefield | A man of God who was not ashamed of the Doctrines of Grace found within the pages of Holy Writ.

Be axnious for nothing …

Christian –

God is sovereign in His creation
God is sovereign over all of His created creatures
God is sovereign concerning His providence

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God … called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also did predestinate … He also called … He also justified … He also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? … For I am persuaded that [nothing – absolutely nothing] can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. | Romans 8:28-39 [adapted]

Why be afraid of what is going on in the world today?
Be at peace | God is in control.
