Level Ground

It has been my practice for a decade or two to each week write and personally sign a note of uplift in Jesus to people who missed out on worshiping with us this most recent Sunday.

I got that basic idea from Leonard Wymore, who is the uncle of my wifeJoyce. He had a great influence for Jesus on many, many people.

He died in Tennessee over a week ago at age 95.

At Jesus’ feet is level ground. I mean Christians such as Joyce and I are not by nature wiser or more moral than those around us.

We just experience the benefits that come from being in Jesus, like: we love, because He first loved us (1 John 4:19).

Those benefits are as accessible to anyone who is in Him as they are to us.

Benefits include being ultimately forgiven and growing godly fruitful by Him. Benefits also include the insights of His inspired Bible and having Jesus trim out of us what is unwholesome.

In addition to all of this there are all sorts of encouragements from members of His church family.
