Our deepest need is for an intimate relationship with our Creator and Savior, Jesus Christ. Today’s hymn, I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say, speaks to our hearts. In the opening of this BBC video, featuring the hymn, we actually learn a little bit of history about Aidan of Lindisfarne and Cuthbert of the mid-seventh century.
I highly recommend a five-part audio series from Alistair Begg on Christ’s journey to the cross.
The Atonement is a crucial doctrine. It is the work of our Saviour Jesus Christ to earn our salvation through His life and death.
J. I. Packer’s words: “Theologies that cannot be sung (or prayed for that matter) are certainly wrong at a deep level” has stuck with me since I first read it a few years ago. It’s also one reason why I’m posting hymns (and the doctrines they’re based on) every other Sunday from Grudem’s Systematic Theology.
