Ravi Zacharias is one of the most intelligent men I’ve ever heard speak…or that I have read. His autobiography is one of the best, most inspiring books I have ever read.
I ran across this video and felt that it should be here today…not sure who it’s particularly meant for, but here it is. It’s an hour long, so I’m not sure anybody will have the time to watch, but it’s here.
“This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2: 3-4
Here is the lyric to a song Dr. Zacharias mentions near the end of his lecture. It surprised me and pleased me to hear him quote it because it’s a very old song I’d never heard and my Christian mentor had asked in her will that I sing it at her funeral service last year, which I did. I hope you’re blessed by it…I hope someone here is strengthened for it:
- He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;
To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials He multiplies peace. *REFRAIN
- When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
Our Father’s full giving is only begun. *REFRAIN
- Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear
- His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again
Have a blessed Sunday!
