    There are two things to receiving healing or anything from God, but I'm going to focus on healing. The first thing is what you allow to be planted or deposited into your heart(spirit). This is very important that's why God said, "Keep your heart with all diligence." Notice you are the one to keep your heart not God, your heart is your responsibility. And notice the second part of that scripture, "For out of it are the issues of life" (Proverbs 4:23). So, things are happening on the outside because of what has been deposited on the inside. And to...

    You wouldn’t think that anyone would fight about Ash Wednesday and Lent. For Catholics it’s part of what we do. For others it’s something they can use or not as they find it helpful, and increasing numbers do. Down-the-line Evangelical churches have started to hold special services for Ash Wednesday complete with ashes and to treat the Sundays after it as Sundays in Lent. Rather severely anti-sacramental Evangelicals now speak of giving things up and fasting on Fridays. I find this cheering, but my friend Carl Trueman doesn’t. Carl teaches Church history at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, the...
