Ligonier Daily Video — Biblical & Normative Views

To underscore the importance of having assurance of faith, I use Scripture to prove that assurance is both biblical and normative.

Ebenezer: Hitherto Hath the Lord Helped Us!

Well, it’s hard to believe, but by God’s grace, I have now completed 25 years of lecturing at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. Where did the time go? In 1995, we started out with four students! I just spent some time praying and thanking God for His mercies over us for a quarter century of seminary life by this beautiful flowering tree just to the west of our seminary building. It reminds me of how the Holy Spirit works in moving His own cause to flower in the calling and training of students and then to bring forth fruit through active ministry. Please pray for our hundreds of graduates serving Christ around the world that they may be fruitful and for our present students as they take exams this week and press on in their training. Today I wish to set up a memorial stone and confess: “Ebenezer: hitherto hath the Lord helped us!”
