Does God Catch the Faith Leapers?
It has taken me a lifetime to get to this place. I am fifty years old and ready to die for what I once believed. I am standing here at the very spot where it all began for me. I was twenty years old then. Who would have thought that thirty years could pass so swiftly? I stood at this very spot, on the ledge of Mt. Moriah, the holiest of all hillocks, and pledged my life and my service to the Lord Jesus Christ. I promised him that I would do all that I could to serve him and bring honor to his name. I looked out on that October night and saw stars that illuminated my pathway as clear as any that led the Magi to the Christ child two millennia before. Now, I stand here again, on this same ledge, and am about to make a different kind of pledge: take me back to the garden of your delight or take me to my destiny.
