I got to finish Jonathan Edwards’ sermon The Excellency of Christ today. Edwards unpacks something of the “admirable conjunction of diverse excellencies in Jesus Christ”, and goes on to give us application to them.

Consider this juicy quote:

One design of God in the gospel is to bring us to make God the object of our undivided respect, that he may engross our regard [in] every way, that watever natural inclination there is in our souls, he may be the center of it; that God may be all in all.

In case you aren’t aware of it, check out the Christian Research Institute Journal webpage. The journal is producing some good stuff that we should be reading. Consider for instance Daniel B. Wallace’s review of Misquoting Jesus by Bart Ehrman. With all the media hype and parroting of liberal arguements against the Scriptures today, reviews like this one are a necessary read as we share with friends, family, and neighbors.

Is anyone interested in going to Desiring God’s Pastor’s Conference?  I don’t know all the details about who is “allowed” to go but my understanding is that if you are training for Pastoral ministry, one could attend.  I am entertaining the thought given the topic!  (not that they ever disappoint)  Just a thought!
