God’s Bright Design for Your Bitter Providences – “God tells us everything we need to know to live godly lives (2 Peter 1:3). But sometimes we wonder.” Jon Bloom explains how we should live contentedly when God works mysteriously in our lives.

Top 10 Books on the Bible’s Authority – Here is a compiled list of books that are excellent resources on the authority of the Bible.

The Heart of John Calvin – Many people know the name. Few take the time to get to know the man. Burk Parsons: “Calvin was a man whom God chose to call out of darkness and into His marvelous light so that he might go back into the darkness and shine brightly unto every generation of God’s people until Christ returns.”

Captive Thoughts: The Cross and Marital Conflict – Trillia Newbell advises in this article at the ERLC, “The next time you are tempted to think ill of your spouse ask if what you are thinking is true, pure and honorable. Ask God to help you take that thought captive. Withhold premature judgments, ask good questions, and believe the best about those you are called to love. Finally, apply the grace Jesus offers by his death and resurrection.”

Can’t Miss Kindle Deals: The Insanity of God by Nik Ripken (free); Glorious Ruin by Tullian Tchividjian ($3.03); Live Like a Narnian by Joe Rigney ($3.99) ; Manhood Restored by Eric Mason ($4.99).

$5 Friday – And its $5 Friday again at Ligonier. There are some great deals on resources concerning prayer, Calvinism, and apologetics.

If we, then, are not our own [cf. 1 Cor. 6:19] but the Lord’s, it is clear what error we must flee, and whither we must direct all the acts of our life. —John Calvin
