Massive Sanctification – I appreciated this article from Ed Welch. Sometimes massive sanctification can work itself out in just a small change of words or a small shift in attitude. He works this out in those times a husband is rejected by his wife, but it applies much more widely than that.

Learning Worship from Idolaters – This article is based on an interesting premise: that we can learn something about worship by studying idolaters. In this case, the author looks at the idolatry of the sports fanatic.

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God.
