"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Two Recommendations

    Today, I watched two sessions from this year's Ligonier Ministries National Conference, made available through their web site. I would just like to highly recommend them to our readers. I was profoundly moved by Dr. Sinclair Ferguson's 40 minute message on "the Doctrines of Grace." As the teaching progressed, I found the clarity and depth of insight quite outstanding, giving me a new and fresh appreciation for both Calvin, and more importantly, the work of the perfect Savior and the grace of God found only in Christ.

    Secondly, the question and answers session with Dr. Ferguson, Dr. Steve Lawson, Dr. Al Mohler and Dr. Ligon Duncan, fielding questions posed to them about the life, ministry and theology of Calvin (approx. 65 minutes) was extremely edifying also.

    I am grateful for Ligonier Ministries making these sessions available to a wide audience on video through their website (if even for a limited time). They can be found here - (go to the video section and you can find the two sessions there as you scroll down the list of available messages).
