Morning Coffee – 08/09/14

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

  • In Christ Our Suffering Is Not in Vain
  • Jesus suffered for us. Yet we are called to participate in His suffering. Though He was uniquely the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy, there is still an application of this vocation for us. We are given both the duty and the privilege to participate in the suffering of Christ.

  • Not to Be a Suffenus
  • John Owen used the term “Suffenus” to describe young theologians who think they know it all. Suffenus was a poet, a tad incompetent, but in no way lacking confidence in his own abilities. Those (overly) pleased with their intellectual powers were, says Owen, called “Suffenuses.” These types are blind to their own faults but bitterly attack the faults of others.

  • The Ultimate Contradiction
  • The abuse of knowledge will always nullify its benefits. While God has no problem with us increasing in knowledge, he does have a problem when we make knowledge our god. And when we make it our god, we find that our great wisdom deceives us.

  • What Makes Us Hungry? – Matthew 5:6
  • As citizens of God’s Kingdom, we come to desire what He desires. It is not enough for us to admit what we lack; we want it! We see God’s righteousness, in His Word, in His son, and we praise Him for it. What we once avoided we now see as beautiful and we yearn for it.

Happy Monday: Feely Goody Feeliness

So the problem is not death but indifference, you say?

Morning Coffee – 01/30/14

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

  • Don’t Miss the True Bread
  • Jesus promised eternal life not to those who eat and drink from His broken body, but to those who believe in why His body was broken — to pay in full the penalty for their sin and to freely give them His perfect righteousness in exchange for their unrighteousness.

  • Sola Scriptura
  • Contrary to common straw men erected by those opposed to this powerful doctrine, Sola Scriptura does not mean that there is no use for experience or tradition in the life of the church or believers.

  • A Catechism on the Heart
  • It is a truism to say that, in terms of our response to the gospel, the heart of the matter is a matter of the heart. But truism or not, it is true.
