Christmas is all about love. But how…and why?

This week the blog is sponsored by The Good Book Company and this post is written by Sinclair B Ferguson. It’s almost Christmas time again and, to borrow the words of John Paul Young’s song, “Love is in the air”.  (“Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh” was how the chorus eloquently ended, if I remember rightly.) Love is “in the air” every Christmas. It features in the songs we hear as we shop for presents and in the commercials we see …

Is this the Best Book Ever?

This week the blog is sponsored by Reformation Heritage Books and this post is written by Joel R. Beeke. When people ask me who my favorite Puritan writer is, I admit that my answer has not always been the same over the course of my life. It is often influenced by who I am reading at the time. However, if you managed to corner me and force an answer, today I would say Anthony Burgess (1600-1663), who I believe to …

2 Reasons Why Coveting Is a Serious Sin

This sponsored post is adapted from The Ten Commandments: What They Mean, Why They Matter, and Why We Should Obey Them by Kevin DeYoung. Taking Sin Seriously What makes coveting such a serious sin? First, we covet when we want for ourselves what belongs to someone else. Coveting is more than thinking, “It’d be great to have a nice house,” or “I’d like to have a better job.” Coveting longs for someone else’s stuff to be your stuff. Coveting says, …

The Most Epic Tale of All Time

This sponsored post is adapted from the ESV Story of Redemption Bible: A Journey through the Unfolding Promises of God and provided by Crossway. The Most Enthralling Story Ever Written It is no exaggeration to say that the Bible is the most sweeping and engrossing and enthralling epic ever written. It spans the entire history of humanity, from Adam’s first breath in the garden of Eden to the final song of the redeemed in eternity. It tells of kings crowned …

Paul Tripp’s Story of Hope in the Midst of Suffering

This sponsored post is adapted from the Suffering: Gospel Hope When Life Doesn’t Make Sense by Paul David Tripp. When Hardship Comes to Stay It was a surprise visit by an unwelcome visitor like it is for so many sufferers. I didn’t know that day that Mr. Hardship would knock on my door, barge his way in, and take residence in the most intimate rooms of my life. And I didn’t have any idea how his presence would fundamentally change so …

Can Christians Lose Their Salvation?

This sponsored post is adapted from volume 12 (Hebrews–Revelation) of the brand-new ESV Expository Commentary—a series designed to strengthen the global church with a widely accessible, theologically sound, and pastorally wise resource for understanding and applying the overarching storyline of the Bible.   A Difficult Passage 4 For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the goodness …

Act Now. Pay Later.

This week the blog is sponsored by Moody Publishers and is written by Robert Wolgemuth the author of Lies Men Believe. Very late at night and into the morning, over runny cheese omelets and cold toast at an all-night diner with my friend, we had one of those conversations I was sure I would never forget. I haven’t. A phone call from the guy’s wife led to this man-to-man talk. I had known them both for several years. He was …

The Mission of God

This week the blog is sponsored by The G3 Conference.    In January, we will gather in Atlanta for the annual G3 Conference—a theology conference for the Church (not just pastors and church leaders). This year could potentially be the most important conference we’ve had in recent years as the theme will center on missions. The reason for the importance is based on the shallow and often misunderstood definition of missions—confusing the role of the local church in the process …
