Quote of the day – Sinclair Ferguson


Psalm 119:129-131

nkjv

פ Pe

129 Your testimonies are wonderful;
Therefore my soul keeps them.
130 The entrance of Your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple.
131 I opened my mouth and panted,
For I longed for Your commandments.


John 17:1-5

17 Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.”


“The Holy Spirit loves to bear testimony to the exaltation of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

What was it like to live in 16th century Geneva?


1 Corinthians 14:40

NKJV

I hope you enjoy learning a little more about the city in which the French refugee, John Calvin, lived and taught.

About Dr. Reeves, from his YouTube channel:

I am Associate Professor of Historical Theology at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and Dean of the Jacksonville campus. My PhD was in Historical Theology from Cambridge University, and my goals here are to provide free, quality explorations of the life of the church and the history of doctrine. I don’t take myself too seriously, though I always try to take each subject seriously. I also do not expect everyone to agree with me on everything. That is the fun of history: a lot to argue over! People may also be interested in my blog, where I at times write things (instead of make videos):

Quote of the day – Clement of Rome


Romans 5:6-10

gnv

For Christ, when we were yet of no strength, at his time died for the ungodly.

Doubtless one will scarce die for a righteous man: but yet for a good man it may be that one dare die.

But God setteth out his love towards us, seeing that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

10 For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. . .


“And so we, having being called through his will in Christ Jesus, are not justified through ourselves or through our own wisdom or understanding or piety, or works that we have done in holiness of heart, but through faith, by which the Almighty God has justified all who have existed from the beginning; to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.”

Conrad Mbewe, on the certain outcome of Christ’s intercession for us


Luke 22:31-32

nkjv

31 ¶ And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold,Satan hath desired you, to winnow you as wheat.

32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: therefore when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

Hebrews 7:24-26

24 But this man, because he endureth ever, hath a Priesthood, which cannot pass from one to another.

25 Wherefore, he is able also perfectly to save them that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth, to make intercession for them.

26 For such an high Priest it became us to have, which is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens:
