Here are the stories I put in my coffee this morning.
- The Beauty of ‘Boring’ Testimonies
Every Christian has a redemption story. Whether you are saved from cocaine addiction or a prideful heart, from deep in a prison cell or the comfort of your suburban home, your story is filled with grace.
- How to Humbly Give and Receive Correction
Because we struggle so much with pride, correction can be difficult to give graciously and difficult to receive graciously.
- The Power to Persevere
We are like the man who was pushing his car up a hill only to discover he merely needed to turn the key and ignite the powerful engine. How much better it is to turn on the power and enjoy the ride. So it is in the Christian life.
- Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto… Thyself
This is God’s covenant faithfulness. His faithfulness to Himself is the basis of His faithfulness to His people. And may that reality delightfully compel your faithfulness to Him as you walk by faith in Christ Jesus.
- Falling on Deaf Ears? — Why So Many Churches Hear So Little of the Bible
