Below is a talk I gave a few weeks ago in the UK. Am just returning from a superb weekend of speaking in Rwanda, with the highlight being a powerful time in a 7,200-men prison.
“We are at war, and the bloody battle is over our hearts. I am astounded how few Christians see this, how little they protect their hearts. We act as though we live in a sleepy little town during peacetime. We don’t. We live in the spiritual equivalent of Bosnia or Beirut. Act like it. Watch over your heart. Don’t let just anything in; don’t let it go just anywhere. What’s this going to do to my heart? is a question that I ask in every situation.” (John Eldredge)
You never fail to ground me Simon – just as Im slipping into that false paradigm better known as ‘comfort in security’, you pop up with another stark reminder of the reality of following Christ. I thank God for you and your ever persistent effort in making sure our feathers remain ruffled and our focus stays on reaching the end of the race!
Thanks Brother, God bless and keep and energise you further for His glory. Peter from UK
Thank you Simon for a solid call to alertness and perseverance. Grateful for you!
