The Ministry Is a Gospel Issue – Michael Horton offers some helpful thoughts about the important of the ministry.

Dying to Disciple – Mez lays down the challenge: “Many believers here think that I have some secret gift for getting people want to hang out with me on the scheme. But I don’t. I just pursue people.

Olympic Timekeeping – The Olympics have come and gone; here’s an article about how they manage to make the timekeeping so precise.

40 Years of Cellphone – Here’s a brief history of the cellphone. How many of these did you own?

Marriage and Friendship – Justin Taylor links to David Powlison speaking about making your marriage a better friendship.

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    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.
