>Christ in Me; Me in Christ – A Comparison

I type in the Marriott hotel in downtown Minneapolis. The Bible Quiz Fellowship National Tournament is underway. For those of you who “know” quizzing; yesterday I quizmastered ten quizzes and had two regular overtimes and one triple overtime! Never had one of those before in my almost-three-decades of doing this! Almost 400 students competing on 55 teams…Amazing stuff!

Read this at 5.45 this morning…Ponder, marvel, and practice your position:

To be in Christ – that is redemption; but for Christ to be in you – that is sanctification! To be in Christ – that makes you fit for heaven; but for Christ to be in you – that makes you fit for earth! To be in Christ – that changes your destination; but for Christ to be in you – that changes your destiny! The one makes heaven your home – the other makes this world His workshop.

W. Ian Thomas

We quiz all day today (Friday); seedings are posted tonight; and tomorrow eliminations begin until the champion is crowned Saturday evening.

Then the 28 students representing Family Life and the more-than-a-dozen adults who are giving their time to serve as coaches and chaperones board our charter bus and head back East. Your prayers are appreciated…

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
