QTVOTD: Does your torch burn a hole in the glacier?

“And the love of the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity, but he who endures to the end will be saved.” Matthew 24:12-13 ->me: Today I was listening to John Piper and his sermon on the “Passion for the Supremacy of God”.  He referred to an analogy he has used about the Glacier and the Torch.  The Glacier is the ‘people will grow cold’ in the passage above but we can be the ones holding a torch high.  Think of that picture, standing tall, holding a torch high above your head, melting a hole in that glacier and the glory of God pouring down through that hole.  If there are enough of us in the church holding our torches high, we can (through the power of God) melt a bit of that glacier before He returns to take us home.  I love this picture -> the brightness and heat of my torch of ministry is directly proportionate to the quality time I spend with my Almighty King.
