Unclean!

Our Assoc. Pastor / my great friend (Matt) is having surgery first thing tomorrow morning.  He tore is ACL, and now they’re replacing it with a cadaver’s ACL!  Can you imagine?

The Old Testament laws dictated that one would be ceremonially unclean if they came within 6 feet of any part of any dead body.  Matt’s about to have a part of a dead body put inside of him forever!  Hebrews 10:9-10 says that old covenant has been replaced with the new: He abolishes the first in order to establish the second. 10 And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Good thing for Matt.  If we were still under the Old Testament Law, he would be incredibly screwed!

Guys, please be in prayer for Matt.  It can be a tough recovery process.  Ask the Lord to speed his healing and to lend special grace to his wife, Teri (’cause he can be a bit of a whiner!).  We love you, Matt!

There will likely be updates on matt’s blog.
