This year I've switched blogs. Unfortunately I'm not sure any of my readers have. The old site still has 300 subscribers and more join every week (in spite of the fact I don't post there anymore). Never mind, at this new site I have 2 subscribers. And you're both very welcome indeed.
My blogging output hasn't quite been what it was in previous years. But there are still some posts that got my blood pumping in 2013. If you missed them first time around, here they are again.

I left this thought (just now) on your post #9:
“…thus commands regarding our active righteousness do not negate the gospel but flow naturally from it.”
We are righteous. Not because of any commands. But because we (the ungodly) are declared righteous…for Jesus’ sake.
That’s why the Reformation was such a nuclear explosion.
Just to go out of 2013 (on your blog) with a bang.
I will subscribe!!

Thanks Steve and Pete. Very kind of you to say Pete! Happy New Year to you both :)
