G.K. Chesterton on Marriage and Men and Women

G.K. Chesterton

My daughter Karina recently posted this from one of her favorites and mine, G.K. Chesterton (British journalist, writer, and Christian apologist, 1874-1936). He has a number of great books, nonfiction and fiction. 

John Newton on the Necessity of God’s Word and His Spirit

John Newton, Amazing GraceI am a great admirer of John Newton, and there are few people who I think have better understood God’s grace. How appropriate that the writer of the hymn “Amazing Grace”, the single most popular hymn in human history, said near the end of his life: “My memory is almost gone. But I remember two things: I am a great sinner, and Jesus is a great Savior.”

Thanksgiving: The Noblest and Most Joy-Giving Sacrifice

William Law / Give ThanksI appreciated these thoughts on gratitude from William Law (English cleric and theological writer, 1686 –1761), excerpted from his book A Serious Call To a Devout and Holy Life. May you have a happy, Christ-centered, full-of-gratitude Thanksgiving!

The Christ-exalting 2013 Desiring God National Conference

C. S. Lewis quote - Desiring God National ConferenceThe Desiring God National Conference in Minneapolis this past weekend was magnificent precisely because it celebrated His glory. The Christ-centered worship was heart-moving. One of the highlights was being with Nanci, who has often said this is her favorite of all conferences.

John Wesley on the Importance of Reading

John Wesley on horsebackOne of his biographers says that evangelist John Wesley "rode 250,000 miles, gave away 30,000 pounds...and preached more than 40,000 sermons.” Often, Wesley had a book open in front of him as he rode. He loved to learn, and read books incessantly, which gave freshness to the sermons he preached about three times a day.

A Simple Sound Check and the Power of Christ

Charles Spurgeon

In We Shall See God, I share a remarkable story that Spurgeon told about an experience early in his ministry:

In 1857, a day or two before preaching at the Crystal Palace, I went to decide where the platform should be fixed; and, in order to test the acoustic properties of the building, cried in a loud voice, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

The Most Important Thing About Us

What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us. - A. W. Tozer

In his great book The Knowledge of the Holy, A. W. Tozer says, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”

Meet 100-Year-Old Walter Jespersen, a Man of God

Walter JespersenI will never forget spending an afternoon in September 2001 with Walter Jespersen, at the home of Doug and Margaret Nichols. Walter, Margaret’s father, was perhaps 85 then, and now is 100 years old.

Remembering Edith Schaeffer

Edith SchaefferEdith Schaeffer was a Christ-loving, creative, caring, and classy woman. She entered the presence of Jesus this past weekend, at age 98.

Chuck Colson, the “Untouchables”, and the Great Reunion

Colson with a prisonerAs 2012 winds up, I am pondering the departure this year of many Christ-followers, including our brother Chuck Colson. As I shared in a post after Chuck’s death, I have the highest regard for him. He was one of my heroes.
