Kind of nerdy. But also kind of interesting.
While the higher prices aren’t fun…I’m still going to buy it.
Love Barnabas Piper’s writing.
You know what the hardest response to see and hear is when I tell someone something personal or sensitive is? It’s not anger. I can see that coming a mile away and change course. It’s not judgment; those people are easy to ignore. It’s not even apathy, though that can sting, because apathy leads to nothing.
The most painful response is shock.
I tell someone a story of some really bad decisions I made in the past and they gasp and say “are you serious?” I explain a sin I’m struggling with and they stare at me, mouth agape. I’m honest about how hard marriage is and the bumpy road my wife and I are going down and they lean back and blow hard through pursed lips in that overwhelmed way. These are the responses I fear most. They are the ones that make me feel like and idiot, a six-inch tall moron.
Probably the only internet April Fool’s prank I’ve ever enjoyed.
John Piper with a great analogy about what Christian freedom looks like.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
