An excerpt from a longer sermon delivered by C. H. Spurgeon.
July Fourth is, perhaps, the most American day there is. It’s a day we remember when we asserted our liberty from the tyrannical rule of Britain and separated ourselves as the American colonies. It’s the day in 1776 when the Second Continental Congress ratified the Declaration of Independence. It truly is America’s day, and nothing makes us much happier as the eyes of the globe turn towards us.

Words from a hymn by Isaac Watts.
Perhaps the deadliest tool in the devil’s assault on the Christian faith begins with the deception that the work of salvation is only partially done. The lie is that Jesus got you part of the way, but if you really want in, if you really want to be a Christian, you have to do something else, something more, something on top of what’s already been done.
One of the apostle Paul’s seminal counsels to his protege Timothy was to let no one despise him for his youth (1 Tim. 4:12). By infusing and instructing him in the “sound doctrine” of God’s gospel, over and over again, Paul was bolstering Timothy in the truth that would enable him to be “an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”
The “Kingdom of God” is one of the more prominent themes that occurs throughout the Gospels. A quick inquiry will find the term frequently mentioned in all the Gospel records, to varying degrees of prevalence. And without burying ourselves in assorted opinions of what the “Kingdom of God” (or “Kingdom of Heaven”) is or isn’t, let’s just chalk it up to God’s intrusion on our world in the person and work of His Son, Christ Jesus.

Another week has come and gone, but this morning we get to sit back, drink some coffee, and enjoy some fantastic stories from across the web. I pray these are as impactful on you as they were me!
A few weeks ago, I was able to sit down and talk with Byron Yawn, pastor, writer, and podcaster. I’ve only recently become familiar with Byron and his teachings and views on Reformed Theology, but I am so thankful for him and his continued ministry to me, personally.
