We thank you, Lord.

    Hope you have a wonderful day Pop. We are missing you. Thanks for the great quote.

    We are thinking of you as well today, Dane, knowing that the love of Christ is being showered upon you, and we are grateful, though we miss you.

    Am listening to the Passion CD, “Everything Glorious,” which Gavin gave me for Christmas. I love it.

    Our God reigns.

    Pastor Ortlund,

    I have read your book, “Whoredom: God’s Unfaithful Wife in Biblical Theology.” It was a wonderful book on a shocking topic that has helped me in my walk. Thanks for writing this book.

    Thank you, friend. I am stunned by the true nature of my every heart-level defection from Jesus. In a way, I don’t want to know about it. But how wonderful is this other realization: At the heart of the universe is a love too great to be limited to what I deserve.
