Guest post by Erika Booth:

Sanctification is messy stuff. I tried to do it myself by following enough rules. Aside from bad theology, it’s impossible. And God has been gracious enough to reveal deeper and deeper sins buried in my pharisaical heart.

I have been a fool! You forced me to it, for I ought to have been commended by you. For I was not at all inferior to these super-apostles, even though I am nothing. The signs of a true apostle were performed among you with utmost patience, with signs and wonders and mighty works. For in what were you less favored than the rest of the churches, except that I myself did not burden you? Forgive me this wrong!

Changed By Paragraphs

I was recently gifted a recently released edition of A Godward Heart: Treasuring the God Who Loves You, in which the author, John Piper, says in the preface “My life has been changed as much by paragraphs as by books,” adding, “God can make a single paragraph life-changing.”

“Seeing happens in an instant.” He continues, “I write, you read, but God gives the sight.”

“God is ready to act.”
