COT / BOM: Lazarus challenged us. There’s no way YHC could sum it up in a way that would do justice to his plea that we take seriously our callings as men of God, but this passage of scripture is appropriate:

Train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance. For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.

MOLESKIN: Lazarus blew the doors off of his VQ by going balls to the wall for 60 minutes and then delivering a sermon we could all stand to hear more often in the COT.
