My 10 favorite links from around the web this week (in no particular order). Enjoy them as part of your weekend reading!
From the Web: Important and/or fun thoughts from around the web this past week.
The Joy of the Christian Life:
On Thursday, a great theologian and apologist, R.C. Sproul, passed from this creation into the presences of our Lord. It was not surprising as his health has declined over recent years and the past week he has been hospitalized. Like many, we mourn his loss here, yet unlike the secular world we rejoice with joy at both the godly influence he had and the place he now occupies. There are a number of tributes that you can read at the following links:
- R.C. Sproul’s Obituary from Ligonier Ministries
- A Letter from Dr. W. Robert Godfrey, Chairman of Ligonier Ministries (about the future)
- A Bright and Burning Light (from. R. Albert Mohler)
- From John MacArthur

- Unashamed Allegiance (from John Piper)
