Joel Beeke writes well about how we should lovingly communicate as parents to children.
It applies in many other relationships, too.
John Witvliet gives an excellent overview of how worship shapes your life with God.
" Just as the people of Israel met in
solemn assembly to renew their covenantal vows to God
(see, for example, Joshua 24 and Ezra 8–9), so too, we
meet in public worship to renew the covenant God has
established with the church in Christ."
"I say all of this because of the temptation we musicians
face to engineer holy moments.... On the other hand, we also can be tempted to
squelch holy moments, to lead liturgy in such a way that
communicates that we expect nothing will really happen
there. It is as if we plan ahead of time not to be inspired,
comforted, or challenged."
Trump is the candidate for Nikabrik. Any power to beat the liberals? No!!
"This is how some who have professed faith in Jesus Christ are lured by a man who openly puts all his faith in power and money, the very things Christ warned us against prizing too highly. As one wag on Twitter pointed out, “If elected, Donald Trump will be the first US president to own a strip club,” and yet he has the support of Christians who fervently believe that this country needs to clean up its morals."
