I’m cleaning up my desk. Not the one my computer sits on, but the one that sits inside my computer. I’m filing old Kingdom Notes, sermon notes, personal notes. And in so doing I came across the below. In coaching my dear friend who recently lost his wife I told him to save what wisdom… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
Too good to be true?
While Christians may express trust in God’s words, they refuse, in numerous ways, to stake their lives on what He says. In this teaching series, Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. challenges Christians to take a second glance at twelve of the most significant promises in Scripture. As Dr. Sproul methodically unpacks each divine pledge, he invites every Christian with a teachable heart to discover anew the grandeur of what God has committed Himself to do for His people and to live in the joy of God’s promises.
There is I suspect a difference between being grateful and being a fan boy. God has blessed the church with all manner of godly men who preach and teach faithful to the Word. My own desire is to cultivate deeper gratitude while avoiding the awkwardness of being a fan boy. But I suppose part of… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
We want to be like Jesus. What I tend to want, however, for those whom I love, is that they would be happy and healthy. I want the good stuff for me, something less for others. When my wife was first diagnosed with leukemia I was worried for her, but happy for me. This, I… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
It has long been my contention that the Reformed church never quite got over the Enlightenment. While we rightly reject this premise and that conclusion at the heart of the Enlightenment experiment, we still drink deep of its spirit. We deny that this world is all there is, but we live as though this world… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
YOUR GOLD TO REFINE
With Your Gold to Refine we have sought to be a tool in the Master’s hand, believing that understanding the call to be sanctified is the first step in the call to be sanctified. We looked at our corporate calling, that we together are the bride. We considered how this calling works in our homes. We remembered and rejoiced in the reality that it is He Who works in us, that even our sanctification comes by His grace. And we looked with hope to the end of our sanctification, when we shall be like Him.
When we are yet outside the kingdom, before we are born a second time, we suppress the truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1). This does not mean we are stupid. It does mean we are foolish. We know what we know but because such knowledge exposes our guilt, we suppress it. We are born again when… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. When we are in fear for our lives, there is precious little we aren’t willing to go through to make it out alive. We will endure long hardship. We will put up with humiliating procedures. We will grit our teeth through pain. We will bite bullets, all hoping to… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
When you have a hammer, everything begins to look like a nail. In like manner, when you have a wrench everything looks like a bolt. Any given tool empowers us and tempts us. It makes easier the task for which the tool was designed, while tempting us to think that every problem will be solved… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
Can an experience become a cliché? And if it does, does that make it invalid? I am writing because I have no access to the internet. I have no access to the internet because I am in a small town in a less developed country, Rio Negro, Colombia. I am here to speak to scores… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
I’m tired, and my dear wife is happy about it. Two weeks of speaking and travelling among the saints in Colombia, South America has left me run down, fighting a cold, and muddle-headed. My wife, God bless her, is no sadist. Her joy over my weariness is perfectly understandable. She likes “Tired Me” because “Tired… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
