Reformation 500 Giveaway and Live Event

An invitation from Ligonier: “You’re invited to join us for a live online event with Sinclair Ferguson, Stephen Nichols, Burk Parsons, R.C. Sproul, and Derek Thomas as we celebrate the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther posting his Ninety-Five Theses to the Castle Church.”

God’s Alarm

“Is there such a thing as God’s alarm? Yes. It does not just waken us from sleep, but in a sense it wakens us from the dead! God’s alarm sometimes works dramatically quickly. This may happen under the preaching of the gospel, or a simple few words from a faithful witness, or from reading the bible, or one of many other means that God uses as His alarm. The person is dramatically awakened from his or her spiritual death.’

I Am a Beggar Who Boasts

Amy Medina writes, “I will boast in my weakness! Shouldn’t that be the mark of me as a Christian? Aren’t I one who already realized, long ago, that I can’t ever be good enough, that I can’t ever be enough of anything on my own? Wasn’t it Jesus himself who said, “Apart from me you can do nothing? So why then am I so afraid of failure, of weakness, of humiliation? No indeed, Amy! It should be my boast!”

No Book is More Astonishing

There are many books on my shelf, and far too many have been neglected. But there is one book, out of all of them, that I fear neglecting: My Bible.

How Your Muscular System Works

How amazing is God’s creation. “Each time you take a step, 200 muscles work in unison to lift your foot, propel it forward, and set it down. It’s just one of the many thousands of tasks performed by the muscular system: this network of over 650 muscles covers the body and is the reason we can blink, smile, run, jump, and stand upright. So how does it work? Emma Bryce takes you into the body to find out.”

3 Things Every Christian Should Know About the Reformation

“For some, the Protestant Reformation conjures up images of dusty old tomes and yawn-a-minute lectures from even dustier old men. We Christians talk about the past an awful lot, and this year many of us have been going on about Martin Luther, John Calvin, and the others even more than usual. Why so much fuss about all these dead guys? Aren’t we in danger of becoming outdated and irrelevant?”

Flashback: Custom-Crafted Kids

Just imagine if you could order children the way you order pizza. Imagine if God knew you were trying to have a child and approached you to ask what you’d like. “Just run through this checklist and put together your order.”

Christianity if false is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.

—C.S. Lewis

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents

    While today we tend to associate step-parents with divorce, in previous centuries they were almost exclusively associated with death and with either widow- or widowerhood.

    The Glorious End without the Difficult Means

    Just as Olympic athletes cannot realistically expect to win a gold medal unless they strictly discipline themselves toward victory, Christians cannot hope to prevail in the Christian life unless they take a serious, disciplined approach to it. Yet lurking in the background is always the temptation to hope that we can have the result of…
