All I Have Is Christ – Desiring God is hosting a free download of the song “All I Have Is Christ.” The recording comes from the most recent Together for the Gospel conference.

Edwarda O’Bara – This is an amazing story: “A woman who lived in a coma for 42 years, meticulously cared for by her family, died Wednesday in her home in Miami Gardens, Fla., the Miami Herald reported.” It is a real testimony to love and loyalty.

Re-Evangelizing New England – Slate looks at how church-planting and music festivals are bringing about a quiet revival in New England.

A Visible, Exemplary Life – “As I mentor and coach leaders in North American churches, I find a common theme among many pastors: They live and lead in such a way so as to disqualify themselves as an elder in their own church.” Ouch.

The Rage of the Flesh – Ray Ortlund says it well: “Sir, if you abuse your wife or daughter or girlfriend, physically or verbally, you are more than a bully. You are the enemy of God.”

Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth.

—A.W. Tozer

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
