Blessings to you today, my friends.

I collected a few interesting Kindle deals for you to look at.

50 Thoughts on Preaching

This is great stuff from Jared Wilson.

Names Nobody Remembers

“Though the world’s idea of success might see our small days lacking, our good God operates very differently. He has a knack for using people lost in the credit roll. We can see this beautifully in the story of the Israelites in Ezra and Nehemiah.”

Locusts and Wild Honey

Why did John the Baptist eat locusts and wild honey? You may not be shocked to know there was purpose behind it.

One Day It Will Be “Tomorrow”

“Christian, are you mindful of the distinction between ‘Today’ and ‘Tomorrow’ in your evangelism? Do you have the same sense of urgency in your proclamation of the gospel? Are you guilty of preaching a take-it-or-leave-it gospel?”

Your Past Does Not Have To Be Your Future

Here’s a wonderful illustration that your past does not need to predict your future.

Secondary and Tertiary Issues Are Still Important

Lara d’Entremont: “When God led me to my theological stance, he also placed me in a small community where no church holds to this theology—not even closely. My family and I are members at a church that is on the opposite side of the theological spectrum for us. We’ve had to keep ‘the main thing the main thing’ and remember that despite our differences, we each believe the same gospel and worship the same God.”

Flashback: How Long Have You Been Battling?

Sometimes it best serves God’s purposes to leave us in our weakness, for it is in this state that he can best prove himself to be our strength. Yet sometimes it best serves God’s purposes to interrupt long suffering and reward long praying with a demonstration of his power.

Grace means your life will end in victory, no matter how many defeats you’ve had along the way.

—Paul David Tripp

You can often tell at a glance whether they are healthy or ill, joyful or sorrowful, delighting or despondent. Consider a company of…

    The Least of My Children’s Accomplishments

    I know what it is to be a father and to take pride in the achievements of my children. I had not been a father for long when I learned that the least of my children’s accomplishments by far outshines the greatest of my own. Their smallest victory generates more delight than my largest and…
