The last couple of trips in the car I’ve been listening to a White Horse Inn podcast about parenting. In the podcast Mike Horton interviews Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson about their book Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus. I wish that I had had this book when we were raising our children. It is about raising children not just with the law, but also with the gospel. You can listen to the podcast here.

As many of you know, I believe all saints should be baptized, the sooner the better. What reason might one have for living in active disobedience to Jesus? Anyway, Mike Leake also grapples with the question of the timing of baptism. What does the Ethiopian eunuch’s example say to us?

Should we take the Bible literally? Well yes and no. Here is what I mean. I can be more symbolic in my interpretation than some people are comfortable with.

Just how strong is your faith God? Here is an amazing story in a secular newspaper about a pastor who met with a tragic accident and yet praises God for his grace. We all need faith like this.

“The convictions that I have about the work of God and his purposes has so captivated my life that I can’t see life any other way than that he is ordering all things for his purposes, which is what the Bible teaches us. … I lived yesterday, today, and by his grace I’ll live tomorrow with great certainty that he is ordering all things for his purposes.”

Matt Chandler reminds us that no one dies early.
