This year at Ignite 2014 we are privileged to have author Jerry Bridges as our keynote speaker. Leading up to the conference we will be featuring content on the Florida Navs website designed to introduce you to him. In the following video John Piper interviews Jerry, asking questions about his life and ministry. They touch on such subjects as God’s providence, spiritual disciplines, and the Christian life. Here is an excerpt from the video:
I have a treadmill at home. I’m a cardiac rehab person so it’s important that I work out on that treadmill. That’s an instrument of physical fitness. But I have to use it in order to profit from it. All of the means of grace—the instruments of grace—are there but we have to practice the spiritual disciplines of the daily time with God, daily Bible reading, scripture memorization, prayer—all of these means that God has given us to appropriate his grace.
