This is the most underrated Sunday of the year. (Many call it “Low Sunday.”) But the week after Easter saw the first confession of the divinity of Jesus Christ in history—“my Lord and my God!”—and you don’t get much higher than that. Jesus is God. Happy Lord’s Day.

On this day in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer was executed by hanging. While being led away, he turned to fellow prisoner Payne Best: “This is the end—for me the beginning of life.” After the war, a concentration-camp medical doctor reflected on the German pastor’s final moments. https://t.co/aa4baD9D4O

Maybe the direst threat to evangelicalism today is the neglect of a lost world, for whom a unified church on mission would be a compelling, beautiful witness to the gospel—instead of anathematizing each other over second- and third-order doctrines and politics. —@jaredcwilson

As I’ve heard said, ‘Complementarianism is not a box dutifully to be checked, but a beautiful doctrine to be celebrated.’ Thank you, @RevKevDeYoung https://t.co/WyL8F2qWCm

This whole wonderful, beautiful, complicated business of a two-sexed humanity was God’s idea. https://t.co/UneBihV5yN

A passion for missions is not optional, since the chief question is not whether you have a heart for the nations. It’s whether God does.

This is the best treatment of the Ten Commandments I’ve ever read. Strikingly insightful. I learned a lot. 20 quotes to give you a taste: https://t.co/D0N9NLXFHt https://t.co/BnfW2zd3Qr

There are only two kinds of preachers. Those who preach the Bible. And those who need to resign. —@DrStevenJLawson
