Short little post to say I am loving my new found friend in Richard Sibbes, to be known as Sibblar from now on. Yeah ok he might be dead but he is still my friend as far as I am concerned. Have been reading his book ‘The Bruised Reed’ and I dig it. Sibblar is helpful in reminding us who we are…a reed, and a bruised one at that. Sometimes we like to consider ourselves as mighty oaks, but such a thought is leading us to a great fall. But the great reminder from Sibblar is that yes, we are a bruised reed, but if one is saved one has Christ in them and the love the Father has for the Son is one and the same as the love he has for us.
