As I was reflecting upon my contribution to the conference and what I eagerly anticipate gleaning from those God has called to participate, I was reminded of just how beautifully our Lord Jesus Christ is woven throughout the pages of Scripture. Truly biblical preaching understands the words of the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins:
I say more, the just man justices;Keeps grace:
that keeps all his goings graces;
Acts in God's eye what in God's eye he is -
Christ - for Christ plays in ten thousand places,
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
To the Father through the features of men's faces.
When it comes to preaching the Scriptures we see and glory in the fact that Christ indeed plays in ten thousand places. My prayer is that He will play well in Miami. I hope you will pray to that end as well. See ya there!
