For Want of Humility

November 28, 2010

I’ve been quite quiet on this blog for some time now.  That anyone is still tuning in from time to time is humbling.  Thanks to all that stop by. I felt particularly compelled tonight to post something about what I’ve been thinking about lately.  I’ve been considering Galatians 2:20: 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless […]

Uh….err…not the singer P!nk, but the A.W. variety.  I’m sure P!nk the singer has some thoughts about God, and, uh, maybe about God’s role in salvation.  But, for this topic, election, I think we should stick with A.W.

By Charles Wesley,  1707-1788         1. Christ the Lord is risen today,         Sons of men and angels say.         Raise your joys and triumphs high;         Sing, ye heavens, and, earth, reply.                 2.

By J.C.Ryle (1816-1900) Are you born again? This is one of life’s most important questions. Jesus Christ said, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). It is not enough to reply, “I belong to the church; I suppose I’m a Christian.” Thousands of nominal Christians show none […]

The Cross of Christ
