  1. Marty, as a bi-vocational pastor, this blog is an excellent resource for staying current on issues that affect believers and non-believers. I appreciate the John Piper article especially, as I do about anything this man writes. May God continue to bless you my friend and fellow pastor.

      1. Thank you so much Mark. I know that one of his sayings stuck with me to this day, “God is most glorified when we are most satisfied in Him” and his unique “Christian Hedonism” is something that I pray for that God would strengthen the intensity of my hunger and thirst for Him and to know Him better and His Word. The greatest attribute I have found, credited to R.C.Sprouls (another of my very favorites) plainly reveals that God is Holy, Holy, Holy. Oh that I might strive to be more so, even though a wicked, wretch that I am. I really loved the “I Hate Prayer”. How exceedingly difficult prayer seems to be at time. Thank you too for visiting our blog. May God continue to richly bless you as evidenced that He already has sir.
