The Weight of 10,000 Sins – “I cannot bear the weight of anything, not my sin or yours. I cannot satisfy the demand of a Holy God or even a demanding god. I cannot satisfy my idols or my cravings, my friends or their needs, my dreams or my desires. Christ alone can, and did. And He bears the weight of it on fully capable shoulders.”

God’s Litmus Test of Grace – “When it comes to true character, the kindness, patience, and honor we show to children and the elderly tends to tell the more accurate story.

Seminary Wives – Here is wise counsel for the wives of seminarians.

Good News and Good Deeds – Elyse Fitzpatrick offers some helpful thoughts on what it really means to stir up one another to love and good works.

As by the grace of God we are what we are, so by his grace it is we are not what we are not.
