Anyway, last week I had the immense privilege to attend the Sovereign Grace Ministries Church Planting Conference, [co]mission. It was great, not in the lose term that is so widely fielded amongst our heavily literate disabled generation but the very real way where great is great (dictionary example – wonderful; first rate; very good: We had a great time.That’s great!).
Dave Harvey was one of the main speakers and I was gripped by what God said through him. I was so challenged about glory. We are all glory chasers, Dave explained to us. We all seek glory, it’s like our default setting. We are wired for glory. Glory is not the problem, it’s where we look for it that causes us pain. The place we find true glory is in the personification of Jesus Christ, but we look for glory in our selves. We want the praise and the fame.
Back to the book. This book is basically (at least to the point where I have read) Dave’s
preach extended, but in a good way. I would definitely recommend it. I would also recommend you read a proper review of the book over at Dave Bish’s blog.
So buy the book. Consume it. Enjoy it. Be challenged by it. And if you want any more convincing, it is forwarded by CJ so you can’t go far wrong.
