MLJ MONDAY – Are You Sure You Want Revival?

 Revival is a word that is on some people's lips once more in my circles.  It is something we are again praying for and crying out to God about.  I came across this quote from The Doctor on my CD of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones materials. The question has to be asked . . .  if revival is like this, are you sure you want it?  I definitely do, but am not so very sure that if it was to come it would be very comfortable for us. "Sometimes a revival may be powerful and yet … [Read more...]

Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Logos Bible Software

Regular readers of my blog will be aware of my love for Doctor Martyn Lloyd-Jones. Back in August I did a summary post listing my regular posts from the Doctor. I thought that today I would link to the posts I have written and then speak about an exciting way that you can easily get your hands on a wealth of material from the Doctor.

BLOGDOM TODAY – The Effects of Preaching and Religious Experience

The critical thing we must all learn in life is how to make sure that our lives match up to what we have learnt of God. What can we do to insure that the preaching we hear has the desired effect on us and leads to real change? How can we learn to not just be hearers of the Word, but doers also?

Mahaney's practical advice seems all the more relevant in light of … [Read more...]

BLOGDOM TODAY – Car-jacking, Missional Swim Trunks, and the Holy Spirit

This is a round-up of some of the posts that caught my eye from the last week or so: First up, on items of clothing.

I have to wonder just how unlucky Phil was - is that the first Driscoll sermon he has listened to, or has he been listening for a while looking for something to jump on? In all … [Read more...]

Hi, my name is Adrian Warnock and I am a blogaholic...it's been three days since I last posted on my blog ...Yes, I know posts have been appearing in this time, but I cheated by writing them earlier and having my editorial assistant publish them and post a couple of links whilst I was away!Anway, despite my addiction to the written word, I am a great believer in the power of the SPOKEN word.
