NYMC07 #7 - Tim Hawkins and trusting God

Yesterday Tim Hawkins spoke in the main session in the morning and in a workshop on the youth worker and marriage in the arvo. Both were very helpful.

The morning talk was very challenging. We looked at Jeremiah 17 and reflected on trusting in God vs trusting in ourselves and the consequences of each. A check point that Tim had was "do you spend more time planning your programs for the teenagers you're trying to reach or praying for the teenagers you are trying to reach."

I have been convicted on day one and two on trusting not in myself and my own strength but to trust in God. This is shown in my prayerlessness.

It would have been helpful to talk about the cross and trusting in the work of Jesus on the cross more specifically than Tim did. 1) It ought to be central to all that we do. 2) It's a distinctive of evangelical theology. 3) Tim is an evangelical in a context where there are people who aren't.
Tim and Karen spoke in the arvo about marriage and their context. It was encouraging. Everyone has difficulties in their marriage. Christian workers have unique difficulties. While men and women are different and sinners (therefore there will always be struggles), I need to make sure that I'm married to my wife and not my ministry.
