I came across an excellent post by Sandy Grant over at the Sola Panel Blog on the topic of divine sovereignty and human responsibility.  Clearly… from a biblical perspective… both are true.  Sandy Grant does a great job of showing this.  You can read the post here http://solapanel.org/article/gods_sovereignty_human_responsibility/.

Following is an excerpt from an article posted by R.C. Sproul over at the Ligonier blog…

““Church is boring”—this is the most oft-stated reason why people stay away from church. It raises some important questions. How is it possible that an encounter with a majestic, awesome, living God could ever be considered boring by anyone? God is not dull. If worship is boring to us, it is not because God is boring. Sermons can be boring and liturgies can be boring, but God simply cannot be boring.”

I hear this same point from people all the time and it never ceases to amaze me.  Is our church attendance only about us and what edifies (read “entertains” in many cases) us?  If worship is boring than it must be because we fail to grasp the greatness of the glory of the God.

I have greatly enjoyed reading Kevin DeYoung’s blog recently.  He is very insightful and his posts are often encouraging and convicting (not an easy thing to do…)
