I know I’ve done a more in depth look at this part of Ephesians, but I feel that some of the core principles may have gotten lost in the intricacies of the text. So, here ya go.

I applied to the Crossway Books review program last month, and was graciously accepted. I have been waiting for Pastor Tullian Tchividjian’s newest book, Jesus + Nothing = Everything, to come out for MONTHS! It was recently released, and I was ecstatic when I saw that this book was available to review.

Last night, I felt like I needed to change things up and get out of the routine of “doing church.” More to the point, last week was just a beating. Physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually exhausting. I’m not complaining, it’s part of bearing my cross. But it doesn’t take away from the toll it takes to go through such exhausting weeks. I normally go to The Village, and I love it. I really wanted to go there last night, but I felt God leading me to go to The Movement at Northplace Assemblies of God instead.
This is why I love C.S. Lewis. It isn’t just because of his vivid creativity and tangible writing style. I read the Chronicles of Narnia series as a child and never really thought twice about the author. But when I read Mere Christianity in my early twenties, followed by The Problem of Pain, Miracles, The Screwtape Letters, and anything else I got my hands on, I developed a deep love and respect for Lewis.

Well, it’s coming to the end of October, and that means several things. First, the epicness that is Thanksgiving and Christmas is just around the corner. Second, the celebration of the beloved Reformation Day is coming up. Third, every blogger in all of Christendom is going to write a blog about Halloween or Hell houses. Well, I don’t see a reason to fight the trend here.
