A poem by John Dryden.
I don’t know much about golf, but I do know that The Masters is like the Super Bowl for golfers. There’s something truly special about the annual tournament held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, GA. Sure, it’s not the only major championship on the PGA Tour but something sets The Masters apart.
I would contend that there is a general fallacy with our common understanding of the idea of someone being a “saint.” Much of this is due to the Roman Catholic Church’s ill-conceived idea that sainthood is something that man himself does and accomplishes. Nothing, however, could be further from the truth.
Oftentimes there are particular passages of Scripture that stand out above the rest. I regularly confess when standing to speak that it’s quite ironic for a preacher to have a “favorite” verse or portion of the Word. But, to be sure, I think it’s a very good thing that we let the Bible affect us, to the point where specific verses or chapters stick with us. We often call these “life verses.”
Have you ever really thought about how crazy your salvation is? You may have never thought of it in those terms, but truly, your redemption and rescue from eternal damnation is a jarring truth, one that should spawn tears of joy and shouts of praise. It’s baffling that such a salvation is proffered for those who are bona fide criminals. What a wonder that such a redemption would be established for vile delinquents such as we are!
