I just received a copy of Daily Readings from the Life of Christ by John MacArthur, volume 1 in the mail. But this was a special publication marking the 25th year of John MacArthur’s service as president of The Master’s College published by Moody Press (not the one in the link to Amazon above).
In the back they included a few alumni testimonials. In God’s kindness to me, mine was included. Here’s what I wrote:
It was at the Master’s College that I grew deeper in love to Christ, His Word, and His Church as one aspiring to be a mature man of God. I always think back with gratitude to God for the Biblical Studies Department and the Biblical Languages Program in particular. Dr. MacArthur continually called us to academic excellence for God’s glory and modeled it in his life and ministry, to which I still aspire as a pastor of a local church.
