Working on Learning to Rest – “The effect of resting in the finished work of Christ ought to be a restful attitude in our everyday work and rest.”

How Not to Follow Balaam’s Error – “If our hearts are satisfied in the Lord we won’t ask him a second time to change His Word. We’ll believe that He is enough and that He knows best. The converse is also true. The more dissatisfied I am with the Lord the more likely I’ll be to want to get Him to change His Word.”

Emancipated! No Longer Slaves Of Sin – “Remember, you don’t HAVE to sin. You died to it and rose to a new life in Jesus. It’s a fight. You will fail at times. When you do, simply confess your sins to Jesus our advocate in heaven and he will forgive and cleanse you. But no matter how many times you fail don’t forget the reality of your new life in Christ. Sin will have no dominion over you!”

3 Ways to See God in Your Suffering – “It’s common to try to learn something from our trials. While learning is important, God intends so much more than just to teach us a lesson. He wants to make us resemble our Savior in our attitude, desires, actions, thoughts, and words.”

Competing Wisdoms – “Our only hope lies in the wisdom of God, which centers in the cross of Jesus Christ. We must turn from the pipe-dream of our own ultimacy, bow before the ultimacy of the Lord God. It is only when we start from God’s ultimacy, and the sufficiency of His Word, that we have any hope of true wisdom and knowledge.”
