"...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)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    Signs You Haven't Experienced Gospel Wakefulness

    gospelwakefulness.jpgFrom Jared Wilson's new book, Gospel Wakefulness, here are 11 signs (pgs 72-73) you haven't experienced gospel wakefulness...

    1. The gospel doesn't interest you--or it does, but not as much as other religious subjects.
    2. You take nearly everything personally.
    3. You frequently worry about what other people think.
    4. You treat inconveniences like minor (or major) tragedies.
    5. You are impatient with people.
    6. In general, you have trouble seeing the fruit of the Spirit in your life (Gal 5:22-23).
    7. The Word of God holds little interest.
    8. You have great difficulty forgiving.
    9. You are told frequently by a spouse, close friend, or other family members that you are too "clingy" or too controlling.
    10. You think someone besides yourself is the worst sinner you know.
    11. The idea of gospel centrality makes no sense to you.

    2,3,4,5,6,9,11....but for all the years of struggling to shed "untruths" and search for clearer truth...I feel hardly any closer than I was at the beginning...
