Credo’s Cache

Each week we will be highlighting important resources. Check back each Friday to see what we have dug up for you. From this week’s cache:

1. You Can Say No To PornBy John Piper– Piper says: “Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit. He creates the miracle. We act the miracle. He creates it by opening our eyes to see the beauties of Christ — that they can be lostforever in bondage to lust, or enjoyed forever by the pure in heart”

2. Confessions of a Recovering Missionary HipsterBy Bernie Anderson – Anderson notes: “That moment of sinking into a sea of ordinariness was over six months ago. I’ve learned something really important since then. Grace is the water that makes up this sea. In reality, Grace is demonstrated in the ordinary much more than it ever is in what we call extraordinary. I’m finding it astounding, really.”

3. Enduring Ignorance for Us and Our SalvationBy Bruce Baugus– Baugus says: “To be clear, Calvin does not argue that the Son ceased to be divine or omniscient in the incarnation, only that he denied himself, for the purpose of accomplishing our redemption, the benefit or use of his omniscience.”

4. An Unintended Consequence of the Missional MovementBy Zac Hicks- Hicks says: “Worship teaches us that serving begins with God’s service to us by providing all the resources for His forgiveness of sins and justification of the ungodly. And then, as He fills us, we go out, enabled to offer ourselves in service as living sacrifices.”

5. I Believe in Magazines: Proverbs for PublishingBy James K.A. Smith – Smith says: “I believe in magazines.  You’re here because you believe in magazines.  Ultimately this is an expression of a deeper conviction: that the Word become flesh meets us where we are.”
