Devotion for Nov. 22, 2009 There once was a very wealthy man. His farmland was very productive. In fact, his crops were so abundant that his barn couldn't hold the harvest.

December 28, 2007

Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow

November 25, 2019

Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow In the middle of his deeply theological letter to the Christians in Rome, Paul cannot contain himself.

Praise and Lament

September 7, 2019

Praise and Lament In the preface to his commentary on the Psalms, John Calvin describes the book in this way, “I have been accustomed to call this book . . . ‘An Anatomy of all the Parts of the Soul,’ for there is not an emotion of which anyone can be conscious that is not here represented as a mirror.” The Psalms are a true reflection of...
