On the dedication page of my new book, HOPE FOR THE CAREGIVER, you Will Find:
The Ultimate Caregiver of a Wounded Bride
“Solus Christus” or “through Christ Alone” describes my deep conviction that my only hope is through Christ Alone. “Solus Christus” is one of the five-pillars of the reformation. (October 25, 2015 is reformation Sunday).
Describing Christ as the “Ultimate Caregiver of a Wounded Bride” is referring to his status as the bridegroom to the the Church. As believers, we are that bride and our Savior cares for us through the harshness of this life.
As a caregiving husband of three decades for a wife with brutal injuries, I’m deeply moved,comforted, and encouraged to know that I have a Savior who understands this journey in ways beyond my ability to understand.
This is the core of the message we know will serve tens of millions of caregivers who are feeling hopeless, weary, and even full of rage and resentment. We need your help TODAY to meet key financial goals to insure this message is heard during November’s National Caregiver Month.
I’m stepping up to serve and bringing an astonishing credibility, but I can’t do it alone. I’m still a caregiver, and part of the growth process of a caregiver is learning to ask for help. So I’m asking for your help today. $25 $50, or whatever God lays upon your heart.
For a gift of $500 or more, we will send you a case of signed books (24) that you can give away to people in your church, your workplace, or wherever. You may not know what to say to the caregivers you encounter …but we do!
Don’t let caregivers struggle alone. Send them a book, point them to the radio show, and help us reach family caregivers by supporting this ministry. When you do so, you put thirty years of hard-won wisdom into the hands of a weary caregiver you know today!
About SOLUS CHRISTUS
Sunday, October 25, 2015 is known as Reformation Sunday commemorating Martin Luther’s nailing of 95 thesis to the Wittenburg Door. (It’s a great story for another time.)
As the Protestant movement gained traction, three solas or principles emerged and two additional ones later added became linked together and known as the five pillars of the reformation.
- Sola Scriptura (“by Scripture Alone”)
- Sola Fide (“by faith alone”)
- Sola gratia (“by grace alone”)
- Solus Christus (“Christ alone” or “through Christ alone”)
- Soli Deo gloria(“glory to God alone”)
