Expositors’ Conference

I’ve just returned from the Expositors’ Conference in Edinburgh, and the mp3s are available online for free to any one who is interested. The sessions were conducted by Steve Lawson, Peter Grainger, Craig Dyer, Iain Murray, and Ian Shaw. It was tough going, but well worth it, with a variety of speakers and subjects covered. I found all the sessions profitable, though I found Peter Grainger’s sessions on Jeremiah and Steve Lawson’s evening ministry on Psalms 1 + 19 + 119 (curious numbering pattern, useful for remembering the key psalms on the Word of God).

Now that the summer’s all but over, I hope to resume blogging a little more regularly. I have a few things gathered up from my online inactivity that I plan to post, time permitting.

Loved with everlasting love

I was struck by something Ian Hamilton wrote in his recent article, The Everlasting Love of Christ:

Commenting on God's words in Jeremiah 31:3, "I have loved you with an everlasting love," Vos wrote, "The best proof that He will never cease to love us lies in that He never began" (Redemptive History and Biblical Interpretation, ed. By Richard B. Gaffin, p.298).

We often think of God's everlasting love as stretching into the future, but forget that eternity doesn't begin now. That certainly is a love without breadth, length, height or depth (Eph 3:17-19).
