How to Lead Family Devotions – Brian Hedges continues the Marriage/Parenting/Singleness series at Servants of Grace by sharing how to do family devotions.

6 Ways to Benefit from Reading Genealogies – “The genealogies in Scripture are so important that it may rightly be said that we cannot fully see the glory of the metanarrative (i.e. the storyline) of the Bible without them.”

Two Fruits of True Forgiveness – “Psalm 32 gives us a litmus test for true forgiveness, which shows us how distinct it is from all competing ideas. According to the psalmist, those who find forgiveness are changed by it. Once we are truly forgiven, we find that our love for God and our compassion for others begin to grow.”

What We Get Wrong About Church Discipline – “So yes, let’s practice church discipline, biblically. Let’s also make sure our practice includes the earnest pursuit of those in sin with the gospel, so that they might come to repentance and fellowship can be restored.”

The Making of Reformed Confessions – “One of the factors that makes a theologian is the exercise of judgment, particularly judgment about himself and then, naturally enough, judgment of others (particularly a judgment between a central plank of the doctrine of the gospel, and a personal quirk). There are big issues and small issues. A Confession is not infallible, of course, but it is a good guide to the overall shape of things, providing a “system of doctrine.” “
