Creation declares the Glory of God

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun, which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them, and there is nothing hidden from its heat. Psalm 19:1-6

The Holiness of God

R.C. Sproul's The Holiness of God is one of the best books I've ever read. It is a modern theological classic. Sproul's passion for holiness is contagious. I see how his life has been marked by this study, and I find that I want what he has. I want to be as excited about the character of God as he is. When I've read this book in the past it has always moved me to worship and I think it will do the same for you. Right now you can get your own copy of this excellent book for FREE by simply requesting it Here.

A Hunger for God: Fasting and Prayer

In preparation for a fast I read an excellent book about desiring God through fasting and prayer that I want to commend to you. In A Hunger for God by John Piper he helps us think deeply about why we fast. His main point is that the kind of fast that God wants from us is one where we hunger for God more than food, thirst for God more than water, and desire God more than anything else. We fast because we have an appetite for God. We say with our fast: "O God, I want you." Below are a couple of my favorite quotes.

Marriage Matters

How does God use our marriages to change us? To grow us in holiness? To reveal our sins and shortcomings and encourage us to look only to Christ for satisfaction? How can we gain clearer vision, that we might see God at work in our marriages and come to embrace the everyday grace of the gospel? How can my marriage be rescued from its primary nemesis - my own selfishness?

The heavens declare the glory of God!

This video was created from actual photographs NASA has taken of the sun over the last five years. Prepared to feel very small and give big praise to the Creator of all things. Our great God made the sun and continues to sustain it as He made and sustains us. To watch this video and not give praise to God is to deny the plain and clear truth. It is just another reminder that God, the maker of all things, is worthy of more praise than we could ever give. It is ludicrous to believe that just by accident, just coincidentally, this incredible star is just the right distance from Earth to sustain life. Countless explosions dance upon the sun's a massive surface because it was designed to do so by our sovereign Lord. I encourage you to watch this and then spend some time in prayer. Praise Him for His incredible creativity and perfect planning of the universe. Praise Him for Jesus who not only created all things and sustains all things, but humbled Himself to become a man, live a perfect life and die for sinners like us! Praise Him!

Everyone's a Theologian

Yes, everyone is a theologian. R.C. Sproul offers a detailed explanation of the importance and role that theology plays in the Christian life. In Everyone's a Theologian R.C. Sproul explains some of the Bible's most important teachings in a readable and systematic fashion. His ability to make complex subjects understandable, and his careful handling of the Word of God make this an excellent resource. This significant theology introduction will aid any believer to apply Christian truths in their walk with Christ. It is a book about God, the Bible and the implications for our life. It is written by one of our days most careful thinkers. He is rightly referred to as a theologian, but in this book he calls every Christian a theologian, because theology is simply thinking about God. Everyone does it, but not everyone does it well. Everyone is a theologian and in this book Dr. Sproul invites every Christian to think about God carefully. The aim of the book is to make sure that our theology is in fact driven by the Word of God. Although he completely confuses the issue of baptism I can still gladly recommend the rest of the book. We plan to use this book in a future study at CBC so we want to encourage you to please go ahead and pick it up.
