Commenting on my article 5-23-13, based on Emile Zola’s famous line, “I am here to live out loud,” Robert Porter wrote;
“Jesus said in John 10:10b “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Another good piece, Brother Larry. And this verse is one I heard my friend, Walt Best, quote or refer to when we were experiencing something out of the ordinary, like wringing out his BT 13 while hanging on our seat belts and I'm taking home movies, or our flying a funny-looking-formation with his BT and my T-craft, or shooting the rapids in a run of 40 miles down the Bow River, or climbing in the snow fields of Mt. Ranier, or hiking in the Plain of Six Glaciers. Yes, he'd often say, "Bob, this is the "abundance" in our lives that the Lord came for us to have. Not just life, but an abundant life. Enjoy it."
This month Robert is celebrating the 80th Anniversary of his family’s famous Gospel Tract, God’s Simple Plan of Salvation, with over half a billion copies in print. He is still living large for Jesus.
I was moved by his response, I also knew Walter Best, major stockholder in Best Lock and Founder of the blessed Heritage Christian School in Indianapolis. These men understood and practiced Living Out Loud, in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
