friends

Dale Cresap's picture

At the end of my ministry on earth I called my disciples my friends. By extension this applies to you. During the time I spent with them, I accepted their humanity and at the same time sought divine purpose in their lives. I do the same with you. Have you found that this is the highest ideal of friendship, to offer human acceptance and jointly seek the noblest things? Some people aren’t interested in either of these and some only one or the other, so you should recognize those who are interested in both for the rare and precious treasure they are. Seek them as friends and seek to be such to those you would befriend.

You are correct. After 12 years at my church, just within the last year or so, I have begun to look deeper into the lives and hurts of those around me. I no longer see them as 'Flat Stanley's (pictures on a page instead of real people with real feelings, hurts, struggles, joys, etc). But ever since one member of our church poured her heart out week after week for her brother's struggle, I finally began to hear her heartbeat, her cry, for him. Finally. And then I was able, in the LORD, to pursue a real caring for her and her brother, exchanging words of encouragement in the LORD, etc. We, since then, have become so much closer as a result of those difficult times that she went through. A wonderful bond is beginning to form in the LORD. This experience, of my heart seeing God's cry for her brother through her reaching out, has opened new doors for me. Now I'm building other relationships as well. Thank you for your encouragement and sharing. I also want to encourage you for your faithfulness in giving the bread from heaven to God's people and any who will listen and hear. May God bless you.

This is an outstanding book, which clearly and simply lays out four differing views of end time prophecy, providing scriptural support for each, showing the unique approaches each view takes, and encouraging you to understand and not judge those who disagree with you. Finally we can honor and love all people (1 Pet. 2:17) as we consider various views of interpreting end time prophecy. What a gift to the body of Christ. Thank you, Timothy Paul Jones!!!
