Weekend Links 5/12

The Heart Sings Unbidden - Ray Ortlund shares a wonderful quote from C.S. Lewis about theology.

Why We Got Married - The story of Ian and Larissa. "We know that we have made a covenant to each other, just as Christ made to the church. The church that He made that covenant with is so imperfect, and sorrowful, and disabled. Just like our marriage. This church, and this marriage, are hemmed in by Jesus and eagerly long for heaven. He is their author and sustainer." Part 2 and Part 3 of the series are both also worth your time.

Forgive Us Our Student Debts  - "You're going to love college. Think hard. Think to the glory of God. And think before you sign those loan papers."

Heavenly Mindedness - Randy Alcorn on looking forward to heaven. "If you lack a passion for heaven, I can almost guarantee it’s because you have a deficient and distorted theology of heaven (or you’re making choices that conflict with heaven’s agenda). An accurate and biblically energized view of heaven will bring a new spiritual passion to your life."

Blessed to Not Be Blessed  - "God withholds NO good thing from those he loves.  So if God does withhold something from us, we can know that it must not be a good thing for us.  We might think it would be a good thing, but we need to trust God’s wisdom."

Success that Exceeds Sanctification  - From Tim Challies. "As we discussed envy I found myself challenged by a thought which became a prayer. It was something like this: Do not allow me success that exceeds my sanctification."
