The Son and the Snowman

There was enough snow for kids to build a snowman in the morning yesterday. All but the snowman vanished by 2:00.

This is what the morning looked like yesterday:



 Thus is winter in Charlotte. I am not grieving the quick departure of snow. This morning, my Cities4Life team and I head out to the chilly sidewalks of Charlotte's busy abortion center to encourage women to choose life over abortion. At least it won't be slippery with snow as well as frigid.

One of the prayers I always offer to God on my drive to the abortion center is based  on John 3:30: Lord, might they hear you, not me. You must increase in their eyes while I melt away. Let them see your glory, not my inadequate presentation.

The snowman is almost gone. The sun, while not yet hot, is warm enough to melt it away. It is a fitting image as my team and I go to minister to the conflicted women with appointments to take the lives of their own children. May the Son melt away their fears and their sin, and may they accede to His power in their lives. 

May there be more of Jesus, less of me.

John 3:30-36

30 He must become greater; I must become less.”
31 The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all. 32 He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. 33 Whoever has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. 34 For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. 35 The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands. 36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.
