Pastor Steve shares these links to stimulate some Thursday Thoughts…
An Unmarked Grave … We concluded our series on the 5 Solas this past Sunday evening, but this is an interesting addition regarding John Calvin. David Mathis writes: “In death he completed his life’s labors, not seeking to make much of Calvin, but striving with all his might to point beyond himself to the one who saved him—the one infinitely worthy of being made much of.” You can read the rest HERE.
Never Blame God … Another from Desiring God that compliments this Sunday’s morning message, “Where Were You When I Needed You?” It’s a long read but one you’ll likely reference again and again. Mathis writes: “You are not the first Christian to have felt angry at God. And you will not be the last to feel the urge to blame him.” You can read the rest HERE.
It’s a common question, and an important one, so we’ll Ask Pastor John – “Our Wedding Date Is Set — Why Not Have Sex Now?” John Piper says: “Sexual relations are a sacred physical, mental, spiritual consummation of awesomely sacred vows made before God in a moment when God himself really does join two people together in a one-flesh union. He does not perform that at random moments during engagement. People need to come to terms with what God has joined together. When does that happen?” You can read or listen to the rest HERE.
