Tell the President : God, not he, is Supreme
The universal church has much to be thankful for in the life of Ambrose of Milan. One, he was instrumental in the conversion and tutelage of Augustine. Two, his hymns and teaching were instrumental in rescuing the church from Arianism in the fourth century. Three, his model of boldness for Christ and the gospel in the face of attempted intimidation by the Emperor is a model for pastors today. Lord, give us leaders in the church like Ambrose for this and succeeding generations.
