The Beloved Son

Last week I read Trevor Burke's book Sonship. I loved these quotes he cites:
"The greatest unkindness you can do to [the Father] is not to believe that he loves you" John Owen.

"It pleased [the Father] to enfold us in the eternal family... it thrilled his heart" Mark Stibbe.
My review will of Sonship will be posted at Together for Adoption on Tuesday. Burke uses a moving story to show the importance of sonship in his book, and Student Alpha have made this animation of the story:

  1. You're powering through the books (and the Bible) at the moment. I'm in awe.

  2. It's a good time of year for reading and study, fuelling up to sustain and prepare me in the busier more people oriented times of year.

  3. You have a great job, as I'm sure you know.

  4. For now it's a good fit for me, wouldn't suit lots of people, and wont always be for me, but I'm thankful for what I've been called to today.
