Jonathan Edwards: Resolutions



Jonathan Edwards



If you haven’t already, check out Grace C’s blog on Jonathan Edwards. I hope that he becomes a person that you all learn more about and come to love.

Without taking away from Grace’s blog, I’ll just say that Edwards lived a life of resolve. At 19 he wrote 70 resolutions that would guide the course of his life. He would regularly look at these resolutions and assess his own life to see the progress he was making.

I’ll begin by posting one resolution to give you a taste of what Edwards focus in life was.

RESOLUTION 1: Resolved, that I will do whatsoever I think to be to God’s glory and to my own good, profit, and pleasure, in the whole of my duration, without any consideration of the time, whether now or never so many myriads of ages hence. Resolved to do whatever I think to be my duty, an most for the good and advantage of mankind in general. Resolved to do this, whatever difficulties I meet with, how ever so many and how ever so great.

The Gospel in 6 Minutes

Take a moment to listen and ask yourself why Piper says, that “You NEVER outgrow your need for the Gospel”. 

2 Questions to answer:

1) What does the Gospel have to do with true wisdom?

2) Re-read 1 Corinthians 1:18-31. Go to the ESV link if you need to find Scripture online. 

  • What does it mean that “Christ crucified is a stumbling block to Jews and Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks (Gentiles), the power of God and the wisdom of God.”?
  • Why do you think that knowing Christ Jesus crucified is the way a person becomes (continually) wise?
