The Great Story and the Single Verse – Without the “whole” the meaning of the “part” would not be clear.  John Piper takes a look at Isaiah 41:10.

Counterfeit Sanctification – Sanctification isn’t easy—it takes faithfulness, hard work, and self-discipline. And even then, it’s not purely a function of your will, but the work of the Holy Spirit in you. It’s not manufactured overnight.

Seeing Yourself as a Disciple, and the Difference it Makes – The Greek word disciple means “student, pupil, learner.”


The testimony of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of believers is found not to be a new revelation or communication of unknown truths.
