Wait on the Lord

Have you not known? Have you not heard? 
The LORD is the everlasting God,

   the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He does not faint or grow weary;

   his understanding is unsearchable.

He gives power to the faint,

   and to him who has no might he increases strength.

Even youths shall faint and be weary,

   and young men shall fall exhausted;

but they who wait for the LORD 
shall renew their strength;

   they shall mount up with wings like eagles;

they shall run and not be weary;

   they shall walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:28-31 ESV

Dug Down Deep ~ Joshua Harris

Okay. I found yet another book everyone should read.
Dug Down Deep is Joshua Harris' brand-new book. He basically talks about his journey from not really taking hold of his parents' beliefs about the Christian faith, etc, to claiming them as his own. 

Something he emphasizes in the book is something he calls "humble orthodoxy", which is basically learning doctrine so that you can know more about Jesus Christ. As opposed to getting all knowledgeable about theology so that you can one-up other people. 

We should be learning more about God 
because we love him and we want to be like him.

Makes sense, huh? 

This is another one of those books that I want to just cram into everyones' brain.
So go read it, if you please. ;-)

Mark Driscoll on Twilight... among other things. ;-)

So I'm not a fan of the Twilight franchise... and this was a really good Mark Driscoll sermon that covers a lot of topics... including the new genre of vampire and occult fiction. I thought it was excellent. :-)
