So bring the truth, grace, and power of this gospel into our current situations, into our personal stories of pain, into the brokenness our local churches, and into the needs of our communities. Turn our sighs into songs, our cynicism into servanthood, and our grumblings into the rumblings of a coming visitation of the Holy Spirit. So very Amen we pray, in Jesus’ triumphant and compassionate name.

Finally, this is a chapter of your life – sordid, horrible, shameful. You can’t un-write it and you can’t re-write it. But in perspective – it’s one chapter. If each day is a page and each year a chapter, then you’ve had many good chapters in your life. They are still there. They have NOT been erased. Sure, everyone is reading your current one, but remember, you have more to write. Each day, keep your focus on the next right thing, the next right step, the next wise decision. That day then becomes a page. Add enough good ones together and you’ll soon have a new chapter.

You know what? He’s a sinner, just like me and just like you. Does this obfuscate him from discipline and judgment by those in authority over him? Absolutely not. He has a long, rocky, uphill road to walk to restore his life, marriage, and relationship with his kids, family and friends. I don’t know if he will ever be restored to ministry, that loss may be a natural consequence of his sin. What I do know is that I pray for him to have a miraculous season of grace as he is first and foremost a brother in faith. The rest of his faith journey, just like yours and mine after any type of sin or failure, is yet to be written by God’s grace

"I know we have won many a soul through pleasure. All the same, it is His [God’s] invention, not ours. He made the pleasures: all our research so far has not enabled us to produce one. All we can do is to encourage the humans to take the pleasures which our Enemy has produced, at times, or in ways, or in degrees, which He has forbidden."

— C.S. Lewis, Screwtape Letters

"And the Bible says we can’t see everything God is doing in our lives either. But what looks like a dead end is really God lifting you up. Because there are no dead ends with God. Only new beginnings in disguise."
