Why I will adopt →
austonjones: I had never considered adoption until recently. While I thought it was a good option for those who were unable to conceive, I knew I wanted to have kids that were “my own.” For some reason however, God has put it on my heart that I will adopt at least one, possibly three kids when I am older. This is not to say that everyone should go out and adopt, as “Go forth and multiply” was...
Resolved, to acquire an unquenchable thirst to grow in the knowledge of God through the daily reading of the Scriptures, both on Scripture of the Day and Daily Bible Reading. Resolved to do more than read the Bible, but make every effort to fill my mind and heart with Scripture through meditation and prayer – and even more so, applying it to my life for the purpose of my sanctification. Resolved,...
Hi new followers :) I’m Jasmine. I love Jesus and people. I have a passion for Truth. God has been taking me by surprise this season. There’s a lot going on that I need to prepare for, with His grace. There are a few adjustments for several reasons. I want to wisely steward my time to God’s glory. First of all, as you might have noticed, I will not be posting up as much as...

nameaboveallnames asked: A second Calvinist video?! YES. Hahah. OH, and I feel silly for asking this, but in the video when you "fell" and said "Glad that I got that over with" what's the bigger meaning? My friend told me that same thing and I was like what?

Anonymous asked: I was the depressed teen.I want to share a prayer I wrote. "I crumbled because the people around me were so burdensome,but I should have grown stronger by your grace and goodness.

This is just ridiculous. I was checking my mail on yahoo and this article came up called ”How Gossiping is Good for You.” When I saw that, my heart sank. I am incredibly disappointed (not at all surprised) with this secular perspective.This is ridiculous and we shouldn’t use stuff like this as a loophole to sin and make ourselves feel better. When has gossip edified, built up,...

solideogloriaa: “One of the common objections to the Christian view of salvation, especially in its Reformed expression, is that salvation by grace alone through faith alone leads to moral license. If we can’t earn one tiny iota of deliverance from sin by our good works, then why do good at all? The Heidelberg Catechism gives five reasons why those in Christ must still do good. First, we do...

What does "Coram Deo" mean? →
“The big idea of the Christian life is coram Deo. Coram Deo captures the essence of the Christian life. This phrase literally refers to something that takes place in the presence of, or before the face of, God. To live coram Deo is to live one’s entire life in the presence of God, under the authority of God, to the glory of God. Coram Deo … before the face of God.”
10 Questions Every Christian Must Answer →
effsteele: Have you ever experienced the repentance that characterizes genuine salvation? Does sin in my life bother me? Do I have an attitude that says, “Lord, everything I know to be sin, and everything you show me in the future to be sin, I am willing to forsake? Am I willing to call my wrong actions and attitudes “sin” rather than viewing them as weaknesses, struggles, or personality...

romansfive8: As I was falling asleep one night, I ‘heard’ the wail and weeping of hundreds of souls in deep travail. I asked God. “Who are these who weep so?” And God answered. “These are the cries of the persecuted church, who intercede for those Christians who live in freedom of faith and take it for granted.” My heart broke.

My Callings & Desires
1) To teach, train, and disciple women in theology and doctrine. But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.- Titus 2:1 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness- 1 Timothy 3:16 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations- Matthew 28:19 The church is quite lacking in encouraging women to...
thesweetermelody: by Paul Washer First of all, a young woman may pursue a relationship with the opposite sex only after she has embraced adulthood and it’s responsibilities. You’re going to be looking for a woman that’s not just beautiful, because she might just have no character whatsoever, but someone who has embraced adulthood. Biblical adulthood, she doesn’t want to be a child. She doesn’t...

Are You an Introvert or Extrovert? →
“One of the most important questions to ask yourself as a leader is who you are. Are you an extrovert like most of the population, or are you a bit of an introvert? Pastor Mark encourages you to take a look at how God made you in order to determine what kind of leader you need to be. One of the most important things as a leader is not time management, but energy management. It’s not only who...

Why I'm a Cessationist →
meditatiotheologica: The basic argument is that 2 Timothy 3:16-17 shows that the canon of scripture that we have now is sufficient for all christian living. Some may point to 1 Corinthians 13 and say that the “perfect” there is referring to the canon of scripture. I have long repented of that view. I believe that it is talking about the return of Christ where we will know Him more fully as He...
