A Few Moments with John MacArthur

I told Joseph last night that after yesterday’s events I was ready to go home and be with the Lord. I mean, I have met and spoken with my spiritual hero, John MacArthur, I’m not exactly sure what else I have left to accomplish on this earth. ;)

Of course, I’m joking, but it truly was a wonderful experience for me to sit under Dr. MacArthur’s teaching for the past two days as he presented the Scriptural teaching on what it means to be a slave of Christ. I may go through my notes to share some of the highlights with you soon, but one thought I wanted to pass on is Dr. MacArthur’s statement that “The fundamental confession of Christianity is ‘Jesus is Lord.’ There is no such thing as a master without a slave.” As believers, whenever we confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, we are at the same time acknowledging the crucial truth that we are Christ’s slaves. Yet as you’ll see in this brief video I took yesterday, being a slave of Christ is the most privileged position we could ever imagine… 

Don’t forget…I’ll be giving away a signed copy of Slave this weekend. Enter the giveaway HERE.

Well, I’m not exactly in Heaven, but I’m just about as close as I can get…

Right now, my husband and I are in Charleston, South Carolina, for a very special conference featuring John MacArthur. Dr. MacArthur was invited to St. John’s Episcopal Chapel by Rev. Dr. Dallas H. Wilson, Jr. to speak on the material covered in his latest book, Slave: The Hidden Truth about Your Identity in Christ

Rev. Wilson provided the following endorsement for MacArthur’s book:

Dr. John MacArthur’s teaching on ‘slavery’ resonates in the deepest recesses of my ‘inner-man.’ As an African-American pastor, I have been there. That is why the thought of someone writing about slavery as being a ‘God-send’ was the most ludicrous, unconscionable thing that I could have ever imagined…until I read this book. Now I see that becoming a slave is a biblical command, completely redefining the idea of freedom in Christ. I don’t want to simply be a ‘follower’ or even just a ‘servant’…but a ‘slave’.

Since this is a very small gathering of people, I’ve already had the opportunity to meet Dr. MacArthur at a book-signing, (That’s one more life goal to mark off my list. :) ) and while I was there, I just happened to get a couple copies of Slave signed. Hmm…but what am I to do with two copies of the same book? How about one for me and one for one of you?

If you’d like to enter to win an autographed copy of John MacArthur’s book Slave, simply add a comment to this post before midnight on Saturday night (Feb. 12). I’ll use Random.org to choose a winner from the posted comments, and I’ll announce the results on Sunday. This is a great book that I’m excited to share with one of you!
