I Wish I Had Been There – C.J. Mahaney

For those of you who do not know C.J. Mahaney, he leads Sovereign Grace Ministries (Think Reformed non-cessationists) in its mission to establish and support local churches.  Before handing the reigns over to Joshua Harris, he pastored Covenant Life Church for 27 years.  He also serves on the Council of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals and the board of The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.  He’s a good shepherd, an able communicator, and a man full of zeal and the Spirit of God. 

Here recently I listened to one of his conference messages, “I Wish I Had Been There,” a message given at the 2010 Resolved Conference held in Palm Springs.  In it Pastor Mahaney brings to life Mark 5, a passage of Scripture, you may recall, that centers on a man who could not be bound and who lived among the tombs and who was filled with an unclean spirit.  Not only is the text brought to life, but as is customary for C.J., he sets up and illustrates the text with some riveting stories of his own.
