Here at the outset of 2013, in the midst of so many vain resolutions, perhaps God would be pleased to do a fresh work of grace in your life. Maybe he would give you some “resolve for good” (2 Thessalonians 1:11) that he would be pleased to empower and sustain and use as a means for continued flourishing, or some new spiritual thriving, in your life.
To that end, we enlisted none other than Jerry Bridges. Just last month he joined us at the Desiring God offices, and we had the opportunity to talk briefly about the Christian spiritual disciplines — or means of grace, as Jerry prefers. This conversation is especially relevant here at the beginning of 2013 with so many new Bible-reading and prayer plans in the offing.
