Favorite podcasts: The Briefing (Albert Mohler); Ask Pastor John (John Piper)
Favorite book: Mere Christianity by CS Lewis.
Favorite place to visit on the web: thegospelcoalition.org.
Favorite pastime: I like to be with my family and friends. It matters less what I'm doing than who I'm with (as long as there's coffee).
Favorite place to travel: I enjoy the trip at least as much as the location. I like long drives and international flights. I also love history. I think my ideal vacation would be bumming around the UK with my family (as long as there's lots of coffee).
Heroes of the faith: Dan DeHaan for imparting to me a love for the Scripture. John Piper for igniting in me a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples. Charlie Wenzel (my Greek professor at Columbia) for being the most compelling model of a life fully devoted to Jesus Christ that I have ever seen.
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
