That Hideous Beauty of Calvary

That Hideous Beauty of Calvary

Marshall Segal

The King We Needed, But Never Wanted

The King We Needed, But Never Wanted

Marshall Segal
Who is this Jesus? As we walk the long road to Calvary this week, we need to ask ourselves if we are ready to receive Christ as the king he is, or if we expect him to save us on our terms.

Is Theology Your Idolatry?

Is Theology Your Idolatry?

Marshall Segal
Has your theology turned into idolatry? Has your knowledge of God ironically and tragically drawn you away from him, not nearer to him? Here are nine questions that might help you diagnose theology idolatry in your own heart and mind.

Sweetly Devastated by Grace

Marshall Segal
A deeper, truer knowledge of your sin — of your absolute lostness and wickedness apart from Christ — will devastate and liberate you. It will devastate you, because you will see darkness in yourself and the horrors you deserve like…

Work with Your Hands, Not with Your Worship

Work with Your Hands, Not with Your Worship

Marshall Segal
The sinful human heart has a strange and offensive fascination with the work of our own hands. One key to glorifying God is to work hard without worshipping our work.

What Is Your Greatest Fear?

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1) If anyone had a reason to fear, it was David. When he…

Every Small Group Needs a Vision

Your small group is destined to die a slow, complacent, even cordial death without direction. Good food and casual conversation might be staples of normal small group life, but they cannot be the substance. Too many groups meet week after…

Sin Blinds You to God’s Beauty

Sin Blinds You to God’s Beauty

Marshall Segal
In this three-minute clip from John Piper’s latest Passion message, he explains that blindness to God is at the root of our rebellion against God. Sin is our greatest problem, but it as much about seeing wrongly as it is about doing wrongly.

You Cannot Serve Both God and Theology

You Cannot Serve Both God and Theology

Marshall Segal
Theology, if cut off from knowing and enjoying God himself, can be a subtle and superficially spiritual god. As we read great old books, hear powerful messages, and adopt doctrines, we need to guard against falling in love with learning for learning's sake, and not for the sake of loving God.

God Works All Things for Your Good

God Works All Things for Your Good

Marshall Segal
What’s your favorite promise in the Bible? For many, it would be Romans 8:28. “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good.” It calms a thousand fears, comforts a thousand pains, and yet raises a thousand questions.

To the Church in America Today

To the Church in America Today

Marshall Segal
Piper: “We have come to take all the relatively minor benefits of following Jesus and elevated them above the massive, real pleasures of knowing him, loving him, and dying and being with him forever. Everything’s out of proportion in typical American Christianity.”

May Jesus’s Name Be Known Through Me

May Jesus’s Name Be Known Through Me

Marshall Segal
Jesus came on mission, lived on mission, died on mission, and left his disciples — including all of us who follow him today — on mission. Conversion is about commission, not just salvation, because we’re not saved to be saved, but saved to be sent.

Killjoys

John Piper, Johnathon Bowers, Ryan Griffith, David Mathis, Jason Meyer, Jonathan Parnell, Tony Reinke, Joe Rigney, and Marshall Segal
Relentless romance. Fierce warfare. Superior pleasure. Our hearts were designed to enjoy a full and forever happiness, not the pitiful temporary pleasures for which we’re too prone to settle. Pride, envy, anger, sloth, greed, gluttony, and lust are woefully inadequate…

What Would Jesus Pray?

Marshall Segal
Prayer is quite possibly the most important thing you will do today. And yet most people feel lost alone with the Lord. They don’t know what to do or how to persevere when prayer feels difficult, boring, or unfamiliar. What

Unbroken Uncut
