Can a person come to a saving knowledge of God without hearing about or believing in Jesus? It's a common question, and a very important one. Mike Bullmore, a pastor in Wisconsin and member of The Gospel Coalition gives a very good response to the question. Mike's clear and correct answer is no, a person cannot be saved outside of hearing and believing in Jesus. Of cours...

MMQB - November 9, 2009

1. I've never been the sickly type, but I've had a head cold and cough for the past week that hit its peak this weekend. God used this to reveal the pride I've had for years about how I don't get sick that often. I also am impatient with people that cough a lot. I know, snobby. This week I've been that guy. Humility. Jesus worked some into me this week through this. 2. Ar...

1. I'm feeling God is leading us to do a "Daniel fast" together as a church in January. Bottom line, I think God needs to shake us up, and fasting is a beautiful biblical pathway for us to shift our gaze from earthly things to the bread of life, Jesus. A Daniel fast is when you eat just vegetables and fruit for a period of time and it is based on Daniel 1:8-16. Much more t...

Here I stand, I can do no other

A clip from the movie "Luther" staring Joseph Fiennes. Luther nailed his 95 theses to the chapel door at Wittenberg, Germany on All Saints Day, October 31, 1517. Four years later he defended his writings at a special meeting called the Diet of Worms. There he delivered his famous words, "Here I stand, I can do no other." ...

Spurgeon's Embrace of Biblical Paradox

"That God predestines, and that man is responsible, are two things that few can see.They are believed to be inconsistent and contradictory; but they are not.It is just the fault of our weak judgment. Two truths cannot be contradictory to each other. If, then, I find taught in one place that everything is fore-ordained, that is true; and if I find in another place that man ...

What if you went into therapy and found that the counselor was Jesus?

I read this today at Ray Ortlund's blog Christ Is Deeper Still. Ray is the pastor of Immanuel Church in the Nashville area. I've copied this directly from his blog, but substituted "Me" where Ray wrote "Nashville." WHAT IF I WENT INTO THERAPY, AND FOUND THAT THE COUNSELOR WAS JESUS? Me: I'm tired. Really tired. Especially tired of failing and then covering it up with a s...

1. I cannot do without the regular, consistent gathering together with a church family to whom I am committed and obligated. It is essential for my soul. As we sang together to Jesus yesterday I was reminded of how much my soul needs to gather with the Tribe. My heart hurts for people that for whatever reason do not prioritize commitment to a local church family. Sometimes...
