A Day in the Life…of a PC Student!

This week Ben had the opportunity to learn from Jerry Bridges. The name may look familiar to you, he has authored some great books–Transforming Grace, Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts, The Pursuit of Holiness, to name a few. During Ben’s lunch break on his first day of class he emailed me a bit of his notes from what he’s been learning. It was so great I just had to post some! ENJOY!

“Have you ever thought about what it means to love God with all your heart,
soul and mind? I don’t think any of us can fully plumb the depths of that
commandment, but here are some obvious aspects:

• Your love to God transcends all other desires.

• With David, you long to gaze upon His beauty and seek fellowship with Him
(Psalm 27:4).

• You rejoice in meditating on His word, and like Jesus, you rise early to
pray (Psalm 119:97; Mark 1:35).

• You always delight to do His will, regardless of how difficult it may be
(Psalm 40:8 NASB).

• A regard for His glory governs and motivates everything you do—your eating
and drinking, your working and playing, your buying and selling, your reading and
speaking—and, shall I dare mention it, even your driving (1 Corinthians
10:31).

• You are never discouraged or frustrated by adverse circumstances because
you are confident God is working all things together for your good (Romans
8:28).

• You recognize His sovereignty in every event of your life and consequently
receive both success and failure from His hand (1 Samuel2:7; Psalm
75:7).

• You are always content because you know He will never leave you
nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).

• The first petition in the Lord’s Prayer—”Hallowed be your name”—is the
most important prayer you pray (Matthew 6:9).”

And if you’ve made it to the bottom of this post, here’s a reward 🙂
