Returned home last night from the Together for the Gospel Conference. In a word or two (or three), "It was Glorious!" I will have more to say about the content of the messages next week. For now, let me just say that if you were not there, you should have been. If you were there, your only regret is that it had to end. There was not one bad session. Nor was there a time when I desired to be in another place, maybe another seat, but not another place :-). If you are so inclined, and you should be, you can order the audio set of the conference from Sovereign Grace Ministries. Again, I will say more later. However, I will share with you a quote from John Owen that was shared by CJ Mahaney. CJ delivered a powerfully challenging and important message on the importance of ministers watching their life and doctrine. He made the comment that we have not truly learned the Scriptures until we live the Scriptures. According to Owen, "As we learn all to practice, so we learn much by practice." I would add, respectfully, to Owen's comment, that as we learn all to practice, so we must seek to practice all that we learn. Let us not only theorize on the glories of a sovereign God; let us not only preach the glories of a sovereign God, but let us also and equally live before the face of the glories of a Sovereign God (coram deo).
