The Church: Living Together When Christ is All in All

I commend to you this series of sermons by John Piper on the body of Christ. Listening to them the past two weeks has really served to underscore for me the significance of the community of believers in God's plan, and how that plays out in the lives of individual Christians and in the Church as a whole. Check them out here:

The Difficult Doctrine of the Love of God

Have you ever wondered how to reconcile the love of God with the depictions of His wrath in the Bible, or how God's love relates to His sovereignty, or just what it means to say that "God is love?" D.A. Carson has a short (90 pages) book called The Difficult Doctrine of the Love of God that attempts to address these questions. It's a pretty easy read and worth the time.
