Edwards Resolutions 1-10

February 18, 2008

This too was on The Rebelution

Jonathan Edwards was a man desperately in pursuit of God as you can read through these Resolutions that he made. You can learn more about this man by listening or reading what John Piper had to say about him.

John Piper’s Message on Edwards

Truly how great if we could take these resolutions to heart. More Resolutions next week

THE RESOLUTIONS OF JONATHAN EDWARDS
BEING SENSIBLE THAT I AM UNABLE TO DO ANYTHING WITHOUT GOD’S HELP, I DO HUMBLY ENTREAT HIM BY HIS GRACE TO ENABLE ME TO KEEP THESE RESOLUTIONS, SO FAR AS THEY ARE AGREEABLE TO HIS WILL, FOR CHRIST’S SAKE.

 1. Resolved, that I will do whatsoever I think to be most to God’ s glory, and my own good, profit and pleasure, in the whole of my duration, without any consideration of the time, whether now, or never so many myriads of ages hence. Resolved to do whatever I think to be my duty and most for the good and advantage of mankind in general. Resolved to do this, whatever difficulties I meet with, how many soever, and how great soever.

2. Resolved, to be continually endeavoring to find out some new contrivance and invention to promote the aforementioned things.

3. Resolved, if ever I shall fall and grow dull, so as to neglect to keep any part of these Resolutions, to repent of all I can remember, when I come to myself again.

4. Resolved, never to do any manner of thing, whether in soul or body, less or more, but what tends to the glory of God; nor be, nor suffer it, if I can avoid it.

5. Resolved, never to lose one moment of time; but improve it the most profitable way I possibly can.

6. Resolved, to live with all my might, while I do live.

7. Resolved, never to do anything, which I should be afraid to do, if it were the last hour of my life.

8. Resolved, to act, in all respects, both speaking and doing, as if nobody had been so vile as I, and as if I had committed the same sins, or had the same infirmities or failings as others; and that I will let the knowledge of their failings promote nothing but shame in myself, and prove only an occasion of my confessing my own sins and misery to God.

9. Resolved, to think much on all occasions of my own dying, and of the common circumstances which attend death.

10. Resolved, when I feel pain, to think of the pains of martyrdom, and of hell.

Modesty Survey by Guys

February 17, 2008

Ladies,

This is from the point of view from your brothers in the Lord. On the Mustard Seed Blog I posted Carolyn Mahaney’s  Heart Check. This is  is a survey that the boys from Rebelution did to show girls/women what guys find as a stumbling block. It is very well done.

It took me a bit to figure out how to get the results, but it is easy once you  get the hang of it.

  • Select Category
  • Select a Statement next to Catagory
  • Scroll Down to see results

Very interesting. LADIES! Pay close attention to what your brothers are saying are a stumbling block for them. In love act accordingly.

See MODESTY SURVEY HERE

Would love to hear you thoughts on the results 🙂

Calling All Girlies!!

December 27, 2007

I just listened to Carolyn Mahaney calded Biblical Womanhood. I wrote on it on the Mustard Seeds Blog. I think it is beneficial to all women of all ages and think it would be a blessing to all of you.  God has made you to be a helper, not just to your future husband. How cool is that, that God can establish His calling to Eve in your life even before you are blessed with a mate. There is a whole section directed to teen girls and single woman. It is worth the time to listen to 🙂

Have a great week!
