A La Carte (7/16)

What Is the Rapture? – R.C. Sproul answers the question. “1 Thessalonians 4:13–18 is Paul’s teaching about what is popularly called the rapture. The rapture is the miraculous transportation of all living Christians to heaven at the return of Jesus. There is a lot of misinformation about this event, but this passage gives us some definite truths about it.”

The Boy Who Wanted to Be a Girl – “I witnessed one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen last week. It was a report on NBC’s Dateline about an 11-year old child named Josie Romero.”

Not a Sinner – Dane Ortlund wrestles with the issue of identity in Christ. “As a Christian I’m in the process of bringing my sense of self, my Identity with a capital ‘I’, the ego, my swirling internal world of fretful panicky-ness arising out of that gospel deficit, into alignment with the more fundamental truth.”

Cross-Cultural Ministry – A good read: “There are no ‘celebrity’ cross-cultural missionaries. You may know a missionary or two from your home church that serves in a closed country. But I bet you a nickel that you can’t name me the author of a book who currently serves full-time in a closed country. Or an active blogger. Or a person whose podcast you listen to. When something big happens, there are books and fanfare, but that is always years after the fact.”

Believing is a matter of the will. A man does not believe without being willing to believe.

—C.H. Spurgeon

    A Deadly Foe of Spiritual Growth

    As we live out the Christian life and cooperate with the Holy Spirit through the precious means of grace, we face a number of foes, a number of enemies that mean to derail us from our pursuit of God. Of all those enemies, none may be more prevalent and none more deadly than complacency.
