Tim Challies: 8 Ways Satan Convinces You To Question Your Salvation

“Though Satan can never rob a Christian of his crown, yet such is his malice, that he will therefore tempt, that he may spoil them of their comforts.”

Steve McVey: The Biggest Reason We Don’t Feel Close to God

“The specifics of our circumstances are probably different, but most of us in the modern church face the same basic temptation, namely that of allowing ourselves to become so busy with life that we miss the promised abundance of the Life that God has given us.”

Barnabas Piper: How did Rape Become a Culture for Young Men?

“How did we get here? What led young men to believe that sex is a thing to be forcibly inflicted on young women? What led them to see themselves so dishonorably and to view women so cheaply? Sin unchecked, sex commoditized, and selves worshiped. Young men live without boundaries and with no sense of who they are or what place sex has in life.”

Desiring God: Can I be Blotted from the Book of Life?

“Let me say that again. Being in the book, having your name in the book, keeps you from doing what would get you erased from the book if you did it.”

XXXchurch: Will I Die If I Don’t Masturbate?

Because we’re forgiven, we should live differently—not for his acceptance, but from his acceptance. We say no to ourselves and yes to God because he loves us and is making us more like himself. And when we look like Christ, the world sees a glimpse of the greatness of God.”
