Book recommendation

The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther – Steven J. Lawson | This book is another of the “Long Line of Godly Men” series edited by Steven J. Lawson. The book is short (122 pp) and a quick read. Upon completion of this book I have now read four books of this series. As with the others that I have read (John Calvin, Charles Spurgeon, and Isaac Watts) this too has been an enjoyable book. It is informative pointing out many of the traits of Martin Luther especially concerning his regard that the Bible is God’s Word and his respect of it as he preached. The books of this series are designed to introduce giants of the Christian faith and show how God has used them, their talents, and personalities in the advancement of His kingdom from a reformed perspective. This book does not disappoint. I highly recommend that you get a copy and enjoy the read.

Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice! … The Lord is at hand. | Philippians 4:4-5

The Greek here for the word rejoice means to “be filled with joy” (the opposite of mourning). We are to “be filled with joy” always. No matter what comes our way, whether by sadness or happiness we are to “be filled with joy” not mourning. Why? Because “the Lord is at hand!” What an encouragement for believers. In every situation our Lord is nigh – to watch over us, to protect us, to keep us … “Again I say rejoice!”

Hallelujah, What a Savior …
