Robert Mounce, the father of Bill Mounce, passed away recently. Here is a link to a video clip, showing him caring for his wife, who was an invalid. A beautiful testimony of what love looks like:
"A Jesus-Shaped Life Finished Well"
Ageism: The New (or Old) Prejudice -
We love our God who embraces all people of any demographic. And we receive the love of God as valued people in no matter what stage of life we are in. Yes, seniors can be grumpy. But, so can everyone else. Grumpiness is not the sole territory of the aged.
On the new covenant role of the Holy Spirit from Keep in Step With the Spirit by J. I. Packer:
The Holy Spirit’s distinctive new covenant role . . . is to fulfill what we may call a floodlight ministry in relation to the Lord Jesus Christ. So far as this role was concerned, the Spirit “was not yet” (John 7:39, literal Greek) while Jesus was on earth; only when the Father had glorified him (see John 17:1, 5) could the Spirit’s work of making men aware of Jesus’ glory begin.
