The Freedom and Justice of God in Unconditional Election by John Piper
The doctrine of God’s unconditional election is so different from what most of you grew up with that you not only have a hard time believing it is in the Bible, but also a hard time feeling that it is good news. So I am swimming against a doubly difficult current in these messages from Romans 9. On the one hand, I believe that is exactly the doctrine that Romans 9 teaches, and on the other hand, I believe that doctrine is very good news. So I must do my best both to show you that it is there in the text, and that it is good news. That’s my job in these days. It is humanly impossible, but with God all things are possible. So, Lord, please help me.
Boasting Only in the Cross by John Piper
But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Galatians 6:14.)

Watch Out by Pyromaniacs
"Be watchful" (1 Corinthians 16:13)
My sovereign King has opened two new doors for me which I cannot wait to share! However, I want to be prayerful that these are God's will for my life. I have watched doors close and tried not to panic (or be sad) as I wait on Him who paves the way. Then one day, two doors opened which contain wonderful blessings! But that is a post for when I am back online. "See" you then.
