Aiming for Heaven... C.S. Lewis

"...If you read history, you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were those who thought most of the next. The Apostles themselves, who set on foot the conversion of the Roman Empire, the great men who built up the Middle Ages, the English who abolished the Slave Trade, all left their mark on Earth, precisely because their minds were occupied with heaven. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this one. Aim at heaven and you will get earth 'thrown in'; aim at earth and you will get neither..."
~Mere Christianity

I am leaving Saturday for Faith Baptist in Lafayette, IN to attend their Biblical Counseling Conference. I am currently in the 3rd of 4 tracks. I am looking forward to the week, realizing that God could do a great work in my heart. I think I am being primed for it right now...

I hope to provide some updates as I have 'net access. God bless...
