Morning Coffee – 06/21/14

Here are the stories I put in my coffee this morning.

  • Bitter Pills: 4 Unpleasantries that Make for Healthy Churches
  • I’m not saying all good churches leave a constant bitter taste lingering on your palette. But if you find these attitudes to be too bitter to swallow, perhaps its time to consider whether you’re looking for a biblical, healthy church that please Jesus, or if you are looking for a social club focused on keeping its clientele comfortable.

  • What Is Hell?
  • There is no biblical concept more grim or terror-invoking than the idea of hell. It is so unpopular with us that few would give credence to it at all except that it comes to us from the teaching of Christ Himself.

  • The Deep Joy of Self-Denial
  • And therefore, we silence those false claims that the old person inside us would otherwise promote. We renounce them, and we set our eyes on heaven, even through the things of this earth, for behold, “[our] reward is great in heaven.”

Morning Coffee – 06/13/14

Here are the stories I put in my coffee this morning.

  • Upon This Rock
  • To paraphrase Jesus’ words, the Lord told Peter, “I say to you that you are a small stone, and upon this bedrock I will build My church.” It was a play on words that made a significant spiritual point.

  • A Passion for Preaching: An Interview with Steven J. Lawson
  • As the pulpit goes, so goes the church. The deeper the preacher takes his flock into the Word of God, the higher they will rise in worship. The stronger they are in the Scripture, the stronger they will be in the pursuit of holiness.

  • When Sin Looks Delicious
  • Do you ever have those days where you just want to sin? Sin looks delicious while righteousness looks distasteful. Sin looks satisfying and holiness looks frustrating. You wake up in the morning with a desire to do what you know you should not desire to do.—What do you do on a day like that?

  • How to Overcome Sin
  • Yes, we are given the Holy Spirit who conforms us into the image of Christ. But our old nature, our built-in-at-conception sinful nature still lives within us. So what do we do with these sins? How can we overcome our sin?

  • The Difficulties Of Being Honest About Our Sin
  • Despite the somewhat recent host of preachers and teachers suggesting that the gospel frees us to be responsibly transparent about our sin, I still wonder how free some people have actually become.

Morning Coffee – 05/22/14

Here are the stories I put in my coffee this morning.

  • A Hope Worth Dying For
  • Death is not termination but initiation—the start of an existence far better than anything we can imagine.

  • Back to Basics: The Church
  • If the church has a wrong view of its purpose in the world, its ministries will be ineffective, and its members will be poorly equipped and spiritually immature.

  • 8 Lessons on Evangelism from Proverbs
  • Solomon is not a lecturer, he’s a pleader. Solomon is not simply reciting facts, he’s persuading souls. . . He’s calling, alluring, beseeching, appealing, and imploring.

  • Another Try
  • There are times when the best place to stand is on the margins and the best place to play is in the second division.

  • Bonhoeffer and Blind Spots
  • We easily identify blind spots in contexts other than our own while nurturing our own forms of blindness. Our own blind spots would not be so if we could see them (that’s why they are aptly named).
