Knowing the Messenger – Rick Lawrence
Rick shares candidly about a dark time in his life when he felt the heavy weight of many troubles. During that period he received weekly encouraging messages in his mailbox — anonymously. Rick confesses that the messages themselves didn’t actually touch him that deeply, but when he found out who the messengers were his heart was pierced through with encouragement. In the same way, we read the message of God in the Bible, not for the message itself, but to get to know the heart of the messenger. Jesus, Rick says, “is far more beautiful than his message,” and he is inviting us into deep and intimate relationship with himself.
