Just In Case You Missed ‘Em

With the overwhelming influx of information available, discerning readers must become selective in what they give their time to read. Just in case you missed ‘em, here are some links I found valuable, and hope you will also.

Horton’s Recent Chapter on Scripture
Dr. Rev. Michael S. Horton contributed to Christian Theologies of Scripture: A Comparative Introduction with his chapter “Theologies of Scripture in the Reformation and Counter-Reformation: An Introduction.” Download it from the link above.

Before Rob Bell, There Was David Swing
PCA pastor-scholar Sean Lucas reminds us of the liberalizing David Swing, and why the most popular pastor of the biggest church in Chicago is no longer there.

Piper: I Act the Miracle
He says, “When it comes to killing my sin I don’t wait for the miracle, I Act the Miracle. Acting a miracle is different from working a miracle. If Jesus tells a paralyzed man to get up, and he gets up, Jesus works a miracle. But if I am the paralyzed man and Jesus tells me to get up, and I obey and get up, I act the miracle. If I am dead Lazarus and Jesus commands me to get up, and I obey, Jesus works the miracle, I act the miracle.” This is some of the most important stuff on sanctification since Future Grace. Don’t wait for some invisible hand to come and stop your sin.

…to the Gospel, and what Christ has done for him. May we all have this passion and excitement to share what others have done.

Can Social Media Be Used For Productivity?
Right now I’m leaning toward “no,” but there are some interesting comments that may make you think. I know a guy on Fbook who is a real estate agent and I get spammed with every listing he’s got. I wouldn’t consider that productivity, but maybe he does. Do any of you use Twitter, Facebook, or other Web 2.0 apps for productivity?
