I got up this morning around 5:55 AM. I got dressed immediately and went to get my blood drawn. I have a doctor's appointment next week and my doctor wanted to check out my blood. I was home from getting my blood drawn around 6:15 AM. I made myself a pot of coffee and ate slice of corn bread. Next I messed with our main computer and then made myself a pot of oatmeal.
After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary and read my newest commentary on Second Corinthians "The Second Letter To The Corinthians" [The Pillar New Testament Commentary] by Mark A. Seifrid. Carol called around 8:45 AM to tell me she was finished with her shift and ready to come home.
This morning I got out to read Volume 3 THE WORKS OF RICHARD SIBBES "An Exposition of 2nd Corinthians Chapter One". This morning I was reading Seifrid's comments on 1 Corinthians 1:21,22 "Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; who has also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts." The 17th century English Puritans wrote a lot on the sealing work of the Holy Spirit/the doctrine of assurance of salvation. I plan to quote more of Sibbes and others on the sealing work of the Holy Spirit today.
Last night I watched television and went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. I am not sure what I will do today. It is not snowing and the main roads are clear so I could go visit thrift stores today. Or I might just stay home all day and read my books and watch the birds at our bird feeder.
Well I will close to drift. No way out.
