But values are not simply words that we write on a piece of paper, or some marketable langua...

divine-jealousy

I came home from the Sovereign Grace Pastors conference with a fresh surge of divine jealousy. Let me explain what I mean by the term. I want the Lord to receive glory and many echoes of thanksgiving from our church as we invest in gospel mission around the world.

I’m a little over a week back from the annual Sovereign Grace Pastors Conference and have been reflecting on it a bit.
