The Problem With Seeking God’s Will – Matt Papa: I have spent too much of my life, and my prayer life, asking for God to lead me into His “perfect will”. “God lead me”. “Guide me”. “Use me”. “Bless me”.

Awakening – New Zealand was already on my list of places to see, but even more so after watching this.

Ask Anything – My favorite episodes of Dr. Mohler’s podcasts are the “Ask Anything” weekend edition.

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
