Jonathan Edwards on Adam and the Tree of Life – “On the merits of His perfect life and atoning death, we now have access to the Tree of Life by faith in Christ. In a very real sense, Christ is the Tree of Life, of whose fruit we will eat for all eternity. For all eternity we will sing, “O loving wisdom of our God when all was sin and shame, a second Adam to the fight and to the rescue came.”

Forgotten Providence – “Not a sparrow falls to the ground without God knowing. His rule and his relationship with his creatures plays out in the generalities and in the specifics of life in this world. God, the creator, continues to care for us. The sun rises on the righteous and the unrighteous, under the creator’s directive.”

Inerrancy and Church History: Calvin and Luther – “It should also be noted that during the Reformation, not only did Reformers like Luther and Calvin express through their various writings that they believed the Bible to be without error, but ensuing Protestant debates with the Roman Catholic Church demonstrated that, despite their differences with regard to soteriology and ecclesiology, both groups held to biblical inerrancy.”

Power Over Porn – “Manhood isn’t about muster, bravado, hunting, or chest hairs—it’s crucifixion with Christ. Biblical manhood is tethered to the Son of Man and our awe of him, or aligning to him, and our adoration of him.”

Sent into the Harvest: Halloween on Mission – “What if thinking evangelistically about Halloween didn’t mean dropping tracts into children’s bags, but the good candy — and seeing the evening as an opportunity to cultivate relationships with the unbelieving as part of an ongoing process in which we plainly identify with Jesus, get to know them well, and personally speak the good news of our Savior into their lives?”
