the week in review

As always, Challies has a giveaway and Randy has his month-long opportunity for stuff.

It is a good thing to be a cheerful giver.

Challies navigates some choppy water with grace.

Do you live an assumed Gospel life?

Go laugh at something.

Some great encouragement for those of us who will never be Peter, Paul, Martin Luther or Charles Spurgeon. One is here and the other is here.

And, instead of a vidoe, two quotes:

"Our young men are going into the professional fields because they don't 'feel called' to the mission field. We don't need a call; we need a kick in the pants. We must begin thinking in terms of 'going out,' and stop our weeping because 'they won't come in.' Who wants to step into an igloo? The tombs themselves are not colder than the churches. May God send us forth." - Elisabeth Elliot (HT: JT)

“It is not easy to get the law killed. Something of a legal disposition remains even in the believer while he is in this world. Many a stroke does self and self-righteousness get, but still it revives again. If he were wholly dead to the law, he would be wholly dead to sin. But so far as the law lives, so far sin lives. They that think they know the gospel well enough betray their ignorance. No man can be too evangelical [gospel-centered]. It will take all his life-time to get a legal temper destroyed.” - Ralph Erskine (HT: Ray)
