Flotsam & Jetsam (10/25)

Word Clouds: The First and Second Epistles of Peter – This is cool. Very cool.

J.R. Miller on Godly Character – “There are things — virtues, fruits of character, graces — which men do carry with them out of this world. What a man IS — he carries with him into the eternal world. Money and rank and pleasures and earthly gains — he leaves behind him; but his character, he takes with him into eternity!”

Creedal Imperative – Fantastic review of what sounds like a fantastic book. I mean, it’s a Carl Trueman book. Of course it’s going to be fantastic.

He Who Sits In the Heavens – “If I dig deeper,” Persis writes, “there’s a showdown taking a place – a face-off between the Bible’s claims of God’s supremacy versus my fallible thoughts and feelings. Who do I listen to? My worries? Or do I take my soul by the scruff of the neck, so to speak, turn off the news or whatever is feeding my anxiety, and turn back to the Scriptures?”

Hans Zimmer to Score Man of Steel – How did I not know this sooner? Zimmer + Nolan + Supes ought to equal one very awesome film. (That’s coming from a guy who doesn’t much care for the original films with Christopher Reeves)

To Everybody Everywhere – “Charles Haddon Spurgeon once said in a talk to children, ‘You may be young; but you are old enough to sin, and you are old enough to die.’ As long as that is true, you need a Savior.”

“Hope itself is like a star – not to be seen in the sunshine of prosperity, and only to be discovered in the night of adversity.” – C.H. Spurgeon

  1. This is a great line-up, Ink! And thank you so much for including the Boice excerpt. The Spurgeon quote you extracted struck me, too. Important words for all those who labor in children’s ministry!
