Steph, the amazing, thoughtful wife that she is, was very creative with my anniversary gift this year:

She checked the chapel schedule at Southeastern and noticed that Mark Driscoll, one of my favorite Bible teachers, would be teaching yesterday.

Several weeks ago, she told me to ask for a half-day today, but wouldn’t tell me why.

Yesterday morning, while Josiah and his grandma were having fun, we went to hear him give a sermon he called, “9 Distinctions Between the Gospel and Religion”.

It rocked.

One of those messages where even though I probably could have spat out all the ideas, just hearing remembering the Truth of the Gospel was still really energizing and good for my perspective!

You can download it for free from the Southeaster Chapel website here.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think!
