"we can be orthodox in our theology and circumspect in our morality and yet tolerate in our lives some of the subtle "acceptable" sins ..."
~ Jerry Bridges, Respectable Sins p. 101
Trying to figure out what I don't see in myself that I need to see. I don't want to be blind to the things that I need to work out in order to grow in Christ.

Focus is Everything

The Urgent crowds out the important, and everyone thinks that their agenda should be dealt with first. ~ The Vine and the Trellis.

I am working through this book with a variety of our ministry teams at Canyon Creek. I hope when I am done to post a study guide about what was helpful in the book.

Sweet as Honey

"The difference between believing that God is gracious and tasting that God is gracious is as different as having a rational belief that honey is sweet and having the actual sense of its sweetness" ~ Jonathan Edwards

Piper on CS Lewis

I wanted to post this because I have been listening through it and am so thankful for the insight of Piper. He gives such a crystal clear understanding of what to love about CS Lewis even though his theology has difficulties.
