A collection of links to encourage your growth in grace.
From the blog this week: The Covenant of Grace in the Old Testament
“Fathers, you have a tremendous opportunity: to help your daughter see herself in relation to God and to his images and to find her place with both. Be very intentional about your words for the short time she lives with you and you’ll help her grow into so much more than she otherwise could be.”
“In order to stand firm and flourish in the coming decades, Christians must cultivate the confidence that comes from knowing we are part of something much bigger than anything Hollywood could dream up. We belong to a people whose faithfulness and flaws stretch back to the times of the Bible and beyond.”
“God gives gifts primarily for his glory. So, use them to serve God and be part of his plan. You might be a queen or a pawn, you may be exalted or laid low. But whoever you are, you are part of a beautiful plan, and you are useful to the King.”
“What Paul says here in 1 Timothy is of huge importance for the church today and always: ‘We know that the law is good if one uses it properly.’ He says two things: 1. The law is good, 2. You have to use it properly. This raises a very important question: What does it mean to use the law improperly?”
