  • Pastor Driscoll gives some updates on the preparations for the Gospel Coalition Conference and asks for intercessory prayer for Pastor Piper as he finishes his book on justification and NT Wright’s views on said subject.  Here ya go.
  • Alex Chediak gives us a heads up on a new book by Voddie Baucham.  The book is “Family Driven Faith” and is about “the crucially important role of parents in raising godly children with a view to multigenerational faithfulness.”  You can purchase this book here.
  • Here are a couple of articles about Pastor Falwell’s funeral yesterday.  The Washington Post article is here, and the Baptist Press article is here.
  • Joe Thorn talks about needing a new confession(s).  Key up Huey Lewis and The News “I Want a New Drug” theme song.  Good thoughts and I agree with Joe, but still love and subscribe to the old confessions.
  • Bob Kauflin talks about suffering and the cross.  I have been thinking about this theme lately and loved this part of his post.
    • The cross assures us that our suffering is not purposeless, blind, unfair, or random. God has taken the most horrific event in all of history – the savage crucifixion of the Son of God – and transformed it into the supreme display of his glory and grace – the redemption of countless undeserving rebels. I tried to capture that thought in the song “Glory of the Cross.”What wisdom once devised the plan
      Where all our sin and pride
      Was placed upon the perfect Lamb
      Who suffered, bled, and died
      The wisdom of a sovereign God
      Whose greatness will be shown
      When those who crucified your Son
      Rejoice around your throne.

      Christ’s suffering means all our suffering now has profound meaning. We can rejoice in our trials because we know God is using them to prepare us for the glory that will be revealed in us (Rom. 8:18). We can be comforted that our sufferings have caused us to run to God for strength. We can thank God that our sufferings demonstrate God’s love for us, rather than contradict it (Rom. 8:35-39). We can be encouraged by the fact that we worship the One who has “borne our griefs and carried our sorrows.” Forever.

    Voddie Baucham’s new book looks like a good one to go through in a Sunday School class. His church has an excellent website:
