May 22, 2020 UPDATE
This week, we said farewell to one of the world’s best-known evangelists and resources for training Christians in how to give reasonable answers to those with questions about our faith. Ravi Zacharias went home to the Lord after a courageous and faithful battle with cancer. He will be greatly missed, but his apologetics training institute continues to give another generation the tools to carry on our calling to engage our seeking world.
I was unable to put together this week’s devotional video, but will produce two for next week which will include some of Ravi’s responses which I believe will encourage us in our own efforts. May the Lord bless you and keep you! – Pastor Richard
