Well Said…By David Burnette
1. Packer on Prayer: It’s J.I. Packer on prayer; need we say more? Packer is always worth listening to or reading. In this clip he discusses the role of prayer in putting sin to death.
2. I Prayed About It: Ever heard someone justify a sinful decision by using this spiritual trump card: “I prayed about it”? Ed Welch tackles this sorry excuse for decisions that dishonor of God. (HT: TGC)
3. Piper on Sanctification and Getting Older: John Piper talks about how aging has affected sanctification in his own life. This is good for both young and old to hear, as our expectations in the Christian life don’t always match reality. (HT: Denny Burk)
4. Leaning on Jesus: Let Scotty Smith’s prayer lead you to rest in God’s strength and love and grace, particularly when you’re at the end of yourself. Not a bad place to be.
