“Learn much of the Lord Jesus. For every look at yourself, take ten looks at Christ. He is altogether lovely. Such infinite majesty, and yet such meekness and grace, and all for sinners, even the chief. Live much in the smiles of God. Bask in His beams. Feel His all-seeing eye settled on you in love, and repose in His almighty arms. . . . Let your soul be filled with a heart-ravishing sense of the sweetness and excellency of Christ and all that is in Him.” (Andrew Bonar, Memoir and Remains of the Rev. Robert Murray M’Cheyne)

Feliz Friday! We’ve now come to the end of the week, as well as the school year, and so the Christmas holiday is upon us to be mindful of the love and humility displayed by Christ in His Incarnation. With that said, here are this week’s links!
- Upon R.C. Sproul’s passing last week, Ligonier Ministries has been posting on Renewing Your Mind Radio interviews with various pastors and leaders who worked with him and were close friends to him. Mark Dever and Jonathan Leeman reflect on their memories with Sproul. Pastor Jordan Standridge wrote about his experience at Saint Andrews Church the Sunday following Sproul’s passing, of which he pastored during his last years. If you missed the memorial service from Wednesday, you can view it at a website dedicated to him and his legacy.
- As Christmas is coming near, there are a number of resources that may be of help to you this holiday season. Paul Tripp argues how Christmas is designed to be the ultimate solution to loneliness, begun so long ago by Adam and Eve. Charles Spurgeon prepared his congregation to share their story of God’s saving grace to friends and family during the Christmas season, and his wise counsel ought to be consulted today. Michael Kruger addresses five popular misconceptions about the Christmas story, Al Mohler addresses whether Christians must believe in the virgin birth, and J. Warner Wallace writes five reasons you can trust the story of Christmas is true.
That’s all for this week! See you Sunday on Christmas Eve!
