5 Ways to Refresh the Saints in Your Life – Jon Bloom writes how we can be “an oasis of living water for parched saints.” These are five biblical and helpful ways we can refresh those saints in our lives. I am going to immediately begin applying these principles.

One Book, One Gospel, One Hope – I am excited about this new blog from Jason DeRouchie and Jason Meyer from Bethlehem College and Seminary and Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis. In this post, DeRouchie provides a very helpful alphabetic acrostic to remind us of our need and the necessity of the “singular good news.”

Four Reasons You Might Be Aborted: An Open Letter to Fetal Humans – The title alone should be enough to draw you in. This is a sobering article from Joe Carter.

Richie Incognito, Bullies, and Living Your Dreams – Ted Kluck: “There’s something about the culture of the game that allows a 30-something bully (Incognito) to continue unabated for decades in his pursuit of acting like an idiot. This, in a nutshell, is what’s wrong with football.”

Piper on Pastors’ Pay – In this interview, John Piper discusses why he chose to live like an ordinary pastor financially. He also talks about hard work, “poverty theology,” how he would advise young pastors, and more. This is a very helpful and important interview.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus! Vast, unmeasured, boundless free:
Rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness over me.
Underneath me, all around me, is the current of Thy love;
Leaning onward, leading homeward, to Thy glorious rest above!
                                                                                   –Samuel Trevor Francis
