Her closing was so “Kelleresque!” You may know that Christianity Today published a special article on Keller:
Pastors from around the world testified to how he has impacted them and their churches. One way their preaching was impacted was through Keller’s belief and model that unless Christ was exalted so that a sermon melted one’s heart with His love, the listener might never apply the teaching. Paige certainly has “caught” that and does it so well.
It melts my heart to know that even in my rebellion, He will never stop running after me. Amazing love — how can it be?
