Round Up

Do You Feel Tension in the Christian Life – The Christian life can feel schizophrenic. But when we begin to fully understand that we are but pilgrims in this world, these tensions become avenues of sweetness rather than despair.

109 Sermons on the 1st Chapter of the Gospel of John – 109 Sermons on one chapter of the Bible, by The Doctor, no less.  Martyn Lloyd-Jones had a clarity of exposition about him that is not found in many preachers today.

Why Good Works Are Necessary for the Christian – Anthony Burgess (d. 1644) argued that while good works should never be construed as meritorious for our justification, they were still necessary as our duty on the way to final salvation.

They Do It Better Than We Do – Disciple-makers have decided to commit a minimum of 9-10 hours a week providing hands-on practical training. This commitment did not come with compelling arguments. The disciple-makers love it. They want to invest their time in the work.

Quote:

“In a broad sense the Old Testament was the economy of conviction of sin. The law revealed the moral helplessness of man, placed him under a curse, worked death. There was, of course, gospel under and in the Old Covenant, but it was for its expression largely dependent on the silent symbolic language of alter and sacrifice and lustration. Under it the glory which speaks of righteousness was in hiding.

In the New Covenant all this has been changed. The veil has been rent, and through it an unobstructed view is obtained of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. And with this vision comes the assurance of atonement, satisfaction, acces to God, peace of conscience, liberty, eternal life.”
