Dear Greg,

I know you can’t possibly read and respond to all your mail, but I just wanted to say thank you. Over the past 5*ish* years of being familiar with you, I have benefited massively from listening to your sermons and reading your blog and a few books. Your teachings on the uniqueness of Christ’s Kingdom, and of faith being essentially a choice, and not a feeling, have been key in helping me mature as a believer. Also, ‘Get your life from Jesus Christ’ is something I remind myself when I find myself getting caught up in the need to be right or any other¬†idolatry.

Your faith teachings have been particularly key- I have struggled with ‘thought based’ OCD through the years, and some of the fears have been about faith- ‘Do I have enough faith to be saved?’ ‘How can I know x, y, or x?..’ So hearing you unpack things in the way you do, AND hearing you express that you are one of those people who has trouble feeling¬†psychologically certain of anything, has been a huge blessing to me.

I’ve even regurgitated a couple of your sermons in my own (occasional) sermons… lol hope that’s ok :)
Anyways, just thought I should let you know how thankful I am!

Laura
