Pentecost Feast of Edward King, Bishop of Lincoln, Teacher, 1910 Commemoration of Martyrs of Uganda, 1886 & 1978 The life of holiness is the life of faith in which the believer, with a deepening knowledge of his own sin and helplessness apart from Christ, increasingly casts himself upon the Lord, and seeks the power of the Spirit and the wisdom and comfort of the Bible to battle against the world, the flesh, and the devil.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Feast of Irenæus, Bishop of Lyons, Teacher, Martyr, c.200 Too many Christians still live with crossed fingers, sweating out their good luck as a portent of calamity. To see them, you would never guess that God's good pleasure, and not the goddess of fate, rules human destiny.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

When we worship God as we ought that's when the nations listen.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Worship is a meeting at the center so that our lives are centered in God and not lived eccentrically. We worship so that we live in response to and from this center, the living God. Failure to worship consigns us to a life of spasms and jerks, at the mercy of every advertisement, every seduction, every siren. Without worship we live manipulated and manipulating lives. We move in either frightened panic or deluded lethargy as we are, in turn, alarmed by specters and soothed by placebos. If there is no center, there is nMore Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Trials should not surprise us, or cause us to doubt God's faithfulness. Rather, we should actually be glad for them. God sends trials to strengthen our trust in him so that our faith will not fail. Our trials keep us trusting; they burn away our self confidence and drive us to our Savior.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Never before has the world been so desperately asking for answers to crucial questions, and never before has the world been so frantically committed to the idea that no answers are possible.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The holiness of the church means that life, as well as truth, marks Christ’s church; the behavior of Christians in the world must be remarkable enough to cause grudging admiration, astonished curiosity or threatening hostility.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The stairway to the ministry is not a grand staircase but a back stairwell that leads down to the servants’ quarters.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Christians in community must again show the world, not merely family values, but the bond of the love of Christ.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Worship is a meeting at the centre so that our lives are centred in God and not lived eccentrically. We worship so that we live in response to and from this centre, the living God.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The one who knows and fears the Lord of Hosts need fear no other.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As Christian feel the changing winds of political climate, the blasts against their values in the media, the exclusion of the Christian faith from educational institutions, they begin to sense the dangers of complacency and of pietistical world flight.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is a calamitous difference between a people who have been immersed in paganism for centuries and a post-Christian society. While the culture of the latter may carry a deep tradition influenced by Christian values, its posture of rebellion will give it a direction that is more explicitly and consciously anti-Christian.More Edmund Clowney [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
