Wherever we are, however old we are, it’s not too late to learn, to change, or to set out on a different journey. It’s not too late to get serious about Jesus.
We so often think that God is most interested in using us to change the world. However, it might be that God’s primary interest is to use our circumstances in the world to change us.
God meets us where we’re at, but he doesn’t leave us where we’re at.
When we get serious about following the Lord, our attitude toward our money and our possessions changes. What changes is that what we called “ours” is actually “his.” How could we not be generous with others when he has been generous with us?
We don’t show up on Sunday to earn points with God, or to be entertained, or even simply to increase in knowledge. The aim, prayer, and end of our gathering is that we might say like Jacob, “Surely the Lord is in this place.” (Gen. 28:16)
In this latest episode of LBE, Dr. Douglas Moo, theologian and professor at Wheaton, joins Collin, Justin, and myself to talk about his new and substantial contribution, A Theology of Paul and His Letters. thegspl.co/LBES4E6
The Lord is a God of election, of grace and of unassailable purposes. He has a plan and he will see it through.
We might think we’re on a journey from point A to point B, but God’s intention is often to change us from person A to person B.

Little brother, eh?
Seeking God on his terms, in his time, and in his way will always bring to us his blessings, his fruit, and his favor.
It’s not bad to want a blessing, but it must come by faith and not by sight.
We must trust God in his timing and in his ways that he will always be true to his word.
There is a world of difference between sin described honestly on a page, never with the intent to stimulate or amuse, and sin depicted on the screen with multi-million dollar budgets, real nudity, and realistic gore. ow.ly/Bimc50GAako
We all want something good in our lives, like a spouse or a baby or provision for our family or church growth or justice. These are all good things, but we ought not to go about them by whatever means we can devise.
We should not seek to accomplish God’s ends by the world’s means.
When we look at what God is doing in the world and in our lives (especially when we don’t understand what he’s doing), we must not forget that he is smarter, stronger, better, and bigger than we are.
God’s sovereign purposes cannot be thwarted.
I’m in Chattanooga at Wayside PCA for a conference on the Scottish Reformation and Its Legacy. I’m speaking tonight at 6:30pm (on Witherspoon) and tomorrow morning (on the Marrow and sanctification). Lots of other good talks planned. Livestream is free. ow.ly/xOyt30rXVJl
When we walk in faith with God, we receive the best, surest, truest, most eternal aspect of his promise, and that is the presence of God himself.
So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith (Galatians 3:9). The life of faith is the life of blessing.
Bittersweet to know that this will be the final T4G, but I'm glad I'll be there. twitter.com/T4Gorg/status/…

In this episode, Collin, Justin, and I discuss how we use the term ‘elite’. Is it positive or is it a term of derision? We turn our focus both internally and externally, with both positive and negative critiques. But first... books! thegspl.co/LBES4E5
As parents, we give to our children the default set of normal. That is why good families are invaluable and dysfunctional families are so hard to overcome.
Of all the privileges we can have on earth, the most significant is to be raised by a mom and dad who love each other, stay together, teach us the Bible, and take us to church.
You don’t have to give up the sport after high school. You can practice on your own, all the time, for the rest of your life. And you can race 5Ks all over the country almost any week.
It’s an individual sport, but very much a team sport too. Your team can’t win with one or two superstars. You need a team of good runners, and the fifth fastest runner may just be the most important person on the team.
Whether you are the fastest or slowest on the team, you have something to race for every meet. You can get better. You can lower your time. You can race against yourself.
And when it comes to determining who runs varsity or who runs at the big meets, it’s almost entirely objective. Just look at the times. No heartache over playing time.
The team size is not limited. Come one, come all. Everyone participates. You don’t have to worry about whether the coach will put you in or start your child.
If you work hard and work consistently (and don’t get injured) you will get better. Sheer determination and discipline can get you farther in endurance sports than in almost any other sport.
You don’t need equipment. Just a good pair of running shoes. And as long as you have some shoes, you can practice your sport almost anywhere, almost anytime.
The whole event is only 15 to 30 minutes long. Gun goes off. You watch them run in a few spots. They finish. You go home.
It takes place outside during some of the best weather of the year (okay, not always at the start of the season, but usually by the end).
I’m about to go to my boys’ conference championship meet, which is prompting me to write a really important thread about why cross country is the best high school sport.
Many of us enjoy God’s blessings because of our parent’s faithfulness. Say thank you, and pass it on.
The story of oppression cannot be told with reference to one race, one sex, one class, one nation, or one civilization. The problem of injustice goes deeper, past the identity obsessions of our age, all the way to our identity as fallen human beings. ow.ly/Dcm150GtnXQ
Hey @disneyplus , if you could get all the Mater shorts to run together, and then maybe put the whole sequence on infinite repeat, it would really be life changing. At home work productivity would skyrocket. Asking for a friend.
We must remember that part of having a biblical worldview is not just holding certain propositions that we think about God and the world. Having a biblical worldview means having the Bible interpret our experiences for us.
When we trade in the things of God for the things of the world, we may think it’s a simple, understandable, and defensible position, but it is a great affront to God, to his glory and the promises he offers to his children.
We must learn how to say yes to hard things now in order to get better things later.
Sin makes us stupid.
Being a Christian means knowing what can be let go of and knowing what to never give up.
To be a Christian is to understand that what we have in Christ and who we are in Christ is more defining of us than we can experience, suffer, or feel here on earth.
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. - Jim Elliot
The Lord’s people love to gather on the Lord’s Day to give worship to the Lord of lords, to feast upon the Lord’s Supper, and to hear from the Lord himself. What a privilege to be in church.
People studying the #exvangelical movement need to understand how history and sociology are being used to deconstruct theology.
