Being incredibly weighed down with homework this week, I’m going to forgo the devotional I had planned for today. Instead, I wanted to offer y’all a brief selection of what I’ve been reading recently in the hope that you might find it as interesting as I have. Hopefully I can put up the devotional I had wanted to write sometime next week.

Distinguishing Between Religion and Gospel:

Over at Nathan Bingham’s blog, he’s hosting a week of quotes from Tullian Tchividjian’s new book “Jesus+Nothing= Everything.” Today’s topic was on the need to distinguish between religion and the gospel. I encourage you to check out the whole series and the book itself.
