Recently I found myself listening to an arrangement of one of my favorite hymns from a brother I once deeply admired. Unfortunately, as I listened I remembered the details of how this brother made shipwreck of his life and faith in order to satisfy the desires of his flesh.
One of the most discouraging things in my walk with Jesus has been seeing Christian leaders fall. At this point in my life, I’ve seen it happen so many times that it is hardly surprising anymore. In fact, at times I feel numb to it. It seems like every year, and sometimes every week, there is news of a different Christian leader, on some level, who has fallen into moral failure.
