By John Bunyan “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”—John 6:37 This doctrine of coming to Jesus Christ for life, informs us of the evil of UNBELIEF; that wicked thing which is the only or chief hindrance to the […]

By John Newton [Another Letter (#5), taken from “The Works of the Reverand John Newton;” I’m posting this to encourage you and to submit to you a thought about the promises of God.  It is my hope that Newton can reinforce the immutability and sureness of such promises. – DB] I promised you another letter; and now […]

Excellency of Chirst!

June 17, 2010

0 Comments

By Jonathan Edwards The excellency of Christ is such, that the discovery of it is exceedingly contenting and satisfying to the soul. The inquiry of the soul is after that which is most excellent. The carnal soul imagines that earthly things are excellent; one thinks riches most excellent, another has the highest esteem of honour, […]

Meditating On Scriture

June 14, 2010

By Charles Spurgeon    It is well to meditate upon the things of God, because we thus get the real nutriment out of them. A man who hears many sermons, is not necessarily well-instructed in the faith. We may read so many religious books, that we overload our brains, and they may be unable to […]

I’m not a prolific reader.  That’s part of the problem.  I am, though, certifiably, a bibliophile.  A lover of books.  I’m not sure how I got this way.  By the providence of God here I am, but I remember it all starting in the 4th grade.  We had a year long reading challenge and every time you […]

Little Grace; Truth of Grace

June 9, 2010

A Letter By Anne Dutton [Anne Dutton stands unique among ecclesiastical writers from the early nineteenth century.  From what I’ve read so far, her writings are fabulously passionate, sensitive, yet doctrinally rigid.  Samuel Rutherford will come to mind as you read her letters because they, like his, drip with the love of Christ and encouragement for […]

I dropped my blackberry in the toilet:(  Why, you may ask, where you fooling with your blackberry near a porcelain vase?  -Sigh-  I don’t know.  Well, the electric went out, I was trying to light a candle in every room, I tripped over the dog in the hallway, my hand reached for the bathroom doorknob, […]

The Learning Process; Thinking in Circles

June 6, 2010

0 Comments

I just recently read an article by A.W. Tozer which addressed the fear of repeating ideas and I think he touched on an important point.  The learning process for anything is never a linear exploration.  Memory, inquisitiveness, familiarity, mastery of basics, practise and more, are all part of how we begin to understand concepts and […]

Moonshine Over Wine

June 5, 2010

0 Comments

Here, in the South, you can’t go a lifetime without having some experience related to moonshine.  Maybe, thinking about it, causes a little psychosomatic headache to start.  Others, maybe you think back fondly about some outlaw family members (or current ones).  Still, others, perhaps the mere mention of that clear stuff brings back memories so […]
