The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife – Sooner or later people are going to catch on that these new discoveries don’t actually change anything. But for now, read Al Mohler on Jesus’ supposed wife.

A Passion for the Gospel and Golf – “On Sunday Bubba Watson, one of the most untraditional golfers on the PGA Tour, was the winner of the 2014 Masters Tournament. But golf isn’t Watson’s top priority. What he considers most important can be gleaned from the description on his Twitter account, @bubbawatson (‘Christian. Husband. Daddy. Pro Golfer.’) and his website, BubbaWatson.com (‘Loves Jesus and loves sharing his faith’).”

Thankful That I Became Blind – “In her autobiographical book entitled Fanny Crosby’s Life-Story (1903), Crosby narrates the following account in which she expresses her thankfulness to God that, in His providence, she became blind.” It’s well worth reading.

When Marriage Is Hard – “Weddings are solemn ceremonies. While it seems romantic and idealistic on your wedding day to pledge your undying love and devotion to the man of your dreams, the truth is it is excruciating in real life. Very few married couples get very far into their marriage before reality sets in and these vows demand something from them.”

Pit Stops in 1950 and Today – Here is a comparison of Formula 1 pit stops in 1950 versus today. Maybe there’s a parable for our way-too-fast lives in there.

Joshua Project – The Joshua Project has relaunched their web site. “Joshua Project is a research initiative seeking to highlight the ethnic people groups of the world with the fewest followers of Christ. Accurate, regularly updated ethnic people group information is critical for understanding and completing the Great Commission.”

The depths of our misery can never fall below the depths of mercy. —Richard Sibbes
