R.W. Glenn on praying for pastors, John Piper on anxiety, Josh Etter quotes J.C. Ryle, and et cetera.

1. Praying for your pastor (R.W. Glenn) – Glenn blogs and encourages us to pray for our pastors. It’s a helpful reminder.

2. Let Jesus Argue With Your Soul About Being Anxious (John Piper) – Piper blogs on Matthew 6:25-34.

3. How Do We Know If We Love Christ? (Josh Etter) – Etter quotes J.C. Ryle.

4. Why Does the Truth of Hell Rise to Watershed Significance? (John Piper) – Piper blogs on the truth of hell. He wisely writes: “None of us ever experience suffering more severe than we deserve. If we are not in hell at this moment, we are experiencing massive mercy.”

5. Entertainment-Oriented Preachers vs Bible-Oriented Preachers (Josh Etter) – Etter quotes John Piper from 2008.

6. Should You Support Campus Crusade Staff Now That the Name Is Changing? (John Piper) – Piper blogs on Campus Crusade’s change of name. He encourages: “Don’t drop your support from Crusade staff simply because the organization made a decision you disagree with. That would be like saying to a fellow-soldier on the frontlines: I’m not giving you any fire-cover because I don’t like the new name the Colonel gave to your unit. Is the soldier faithful and fruitful? That is the decisive issue.”

6. Living for the Joy of All Peoples — Wherever You Live (David Platt) – Platt blogs on why he is pastoring a church in Birmingham, Alabama.
