Struck by Russ Ramsey, Free for CAPC Members
Death’s party-crashing ways are detailed in a new book by Russ Ramsey, titled Struck: One Christian’s Reflections on Encountering Death.
The internet is chock full of wise sages today. Drew Dixon nails it:
So would Paul play Playstation 3? I think so. But he would play Playstation 3 knowing that it doesn’t even touch the joy he has in Christ. And he would probably throw it out the window if it started to distract him from his one true love (I don’t think that the zeal he had as a Pharisee ever really left him!). Its all a matter of perspective. Has the gospel become so intensely precious to you that you could honestly say you have suffered the loss of all things? You don’t have to hate Playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii or the new James Bond movie (which in all honesty I really want to see), but none of those things can match the joy I have found in being a child of God through the death and resurrecton of my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.
