Daily Devotional (April 10th): The Chaos of True Conversion

by Aaron Dunlop
MIS85-2

“Conversion put me in a complicated and comprehensive chaos. I sometimes wonder, when I hear other Christians pray for the salvation of the ‘lost,’ if they realize that this comprehensive chaos is the desired end of such prayers. Often, people asked me to describe the ‘lessons’ that I learned from this experience. I can’t. It was too traumatic. Sometimes in crisis, we don’t really learn lessons. Sometimes the result is simpler and more profound: sometimes our character is simply transformed.” (p. 27)

Reading: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

  1. Thanks, you’re right, it is a great book. Re. the Exclusive Psalmody—we will give her liberty of conscience on that:)

  2. Great Book. Loved it and learned allot. She could have left out the Exclusive Psalm singing preference, but I just ignored that part.
