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.ūüėČ

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?
