Sean Michael Lucas

Sean Michael Lucas, Assistant Professor at Covenant Seminary, reflects here on Edwards and ministerial formation.

Good article.

I recall reading through Edward's diary myself and noting the self-effort versus total dependence on God battle. Interestingly, as I recall (its been years now!), he discontinued his diary (or became much more infrequent upon it) shortly after the discovery of the harmfulness of his self-efforts. I wonder, thus, if he saw even his diary keeping as part of the futile resolutions business.

I think we all discover in time that the "resolution of resolutions" is not to be moral per se, but rather to seek God in Christ, and delight in His presence, which transforms us for the time, at least, and strengthens us against present and future temptations.
