What Real Faith Looks Like
What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Jesus Christ my Lord. (Philippians 3:8 NIV)
At a prayer service for the husband of a dear friend, a large crowd sat in silence as his wife rolled his wheelchair into the chapel. We had known this man through the years as vibrant, strong, and energetic, a long-distance runner who lived the same way he ran—with his eyes on the future. But the man we greeted was weak, pale, bald—though never more handsome—and very much living in the moment.
