The Alone Instrument – I’ve really been enjoying this album from Columbia Presbyterian Church. I especially like the adaptation of “To God Be the Glory.”

—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.
