Midlife, Christ Is
Jared Wilson reflects on midlife. “Midlife brings new insecurities and awakenings to long-dormant regrets. Many of us face empty nests and the prospect of, in effect, starting over with spouses we’ve only related to for so long as co-parents rather than as partners or friends.

When Did Jesus Die? (Do We Know the Day and Time?)
“Ever wondered, ‘When did Jesus die?’ It’s a perfectly reasonable question as we near the celebration of Easter. The good news is there’s a fairly straightforward answer.”
Flashback: It’s Better To Suffer Wrong
Whatever we have suffered has not taken place outside of his will, beyond his providence, or past the jurisdiction of his sovereignty. This injustice was not unforeseen by God and did not catch him by surprise.
We forget too easily the words of the Lord Jesus; but He never forgets a promise He makes! —J.R. Miller
