That I get paid to study the Bible and preach the Word baffles me constantly, but I praise the LORD that He has sovereignly called me to such a vocation. I love what I do and I would never want to change it. This week is especially exciting for a few reasons:

1) I'm starting the book of Ephesians in our Tuesday night Bible study. Tonight is a jet tour through the book and what a joy it has been to read through this marvelous book. I'm embarking upon Ephesians for a host of reasons, a few of which are (a) to understand the supremacy and sovereignty of God in our salvation; (b) to give the gospel every week (and it's in the text too!); (c) to show how it is absolutely imperative to be what you are (live a life of obedience as a believer who has experienced the new birth. It should be fun.

2) I'm resuming my study on Wednesday night in the book of Psalms. We're on Psalm 55 this week. We're over one-third of the way through the book and I'm enjoying the study immensely. God is good and His character is infinite.

3) I'm going to the Shepherd's Conference with my dad @ Grace Community Church. What a joy to hear men like Steve Lawson, John MacArthur, Al Mohler, Rick Holland, Phil Johnson and many more open God's Word and faithfully proclaim the Word with all boldness and authority as mouthpieces for God Himself. Speak, O Lord!
