Please continue to pray for R.C. Sproul. I have heard from those within the ministry that he remains in critical condition. Also, be sure to watch this stirring video of Dr. Sproul preaching the gospel through the years.

Wayne Grudem summarizes what we know. “For centuries, artists have portrayed angels as beautiful humans with wings and glowing light, complete with halos, harps, and flowing white gowns (or perfectly sculpted bodies). But is that really what angels look like? Angels have inspired all sorts of imaginative stories and depictions, but what’s left when we separate fact from fiction?

Dr. Ligon Duncan gives some great advice on how best to support your pastor.
Jesus isn’t threatened by Christmas gifts. He doesn’t get better when we diminish or downplay them, either by eschewing them altogether or by contenting ourselves with gifts that are frugal, that cost us nearly nothing and really aren’t that good.
There is no plateau in the Christian life. We are either growing closer to Christ’s likeness or we are falling away.
The ultimate test of our spirituality is the measure of our amazement at the grace of God.—Martyn Lloyd-Jones
