Passion Points

Here are some good posts for your weekend and beyond:

Why Devotional Bible Reading Is Good Bible Reading – Dane Ortlund (Crossway)
That’s reading the Bible devotionally—when you come to the Bible and say, “Okay, what is here that needs to change me and mess with me, to tweak me and to correct me, to lead me more clearly and more deeply into communing with God?”

How to Mortify Sin – Sinclair Ferguson (Ligonier)
Like Olympic long jumpers, we will not succeed unless we go back from the point of action to a point from which we can gain energy for the strenuous effort of dealing with sin.

5.5 Hours of Teaching through the Letter to the Galatians – via Justin Taylor
Here are the videos from the expository plenaries at the Gospel Coalition National Conference (April 3-5, 2017) in Indianapolis, with the theme of “No Other Gospel.”

‘One Anothers’ I Can’t Find in the New Testament – Ray Ortlund
It is also striking to notice the “one anothers” that do not appear there.  For example, sanctify one another, humble one another, scrutinize one another, pressure one another, embarrass one another, corner one another, interrupt one another, defeat one another, sacrifice one another, shame one another, marginalize one another, exclude one another, judge one another, run one another’s lives, confess one another’s sins . . . .

Hope you have a great Lord’s Day practicing the real “one anothers” and communing together with our great God!
