I admire this appreciation. “Wiersbe challenges me to see that any work not done in the service of God and his people is ultimately vain, that whatever powers God might give to his people, and whatever calling he might place on them, our time is never wasted in putting our arm around ordinary Christians and helping them along the path.”
Rachel Held Evans died on Saturday at simply 37 years of age. WORLD reviews: “Rachel Held Evans, an author and blogger popular with theologically liberal Christians, died Saturday at a hospital in Nashville, Tenn., after a brief illness. She was 37.”
This is a vital distinction, isn’t it? Our aim is to be personally inoffensive whilst we preach an offensive message. “We must stand behind the fact that the gospel will offend. We must not cower in fear of being offensive. However, sometimes we fall into the trap of being offensive ourselves. That is, we sometimes add to the offensiveness when we act like jerks in the process.”
We must be thought of about how Fb is taking increasingly more energy (which is to say, how we’re giving Fb increasingly more energy). “Facebook’s speech rules were already vague and malleable.

Despite what people tell you there isn’t a rule about sermon length. What needs to be applied is wisdom – something that is always more complicated than law.”
Scott Watkins: “Recent unexpected moments of grief have reminded me of the importance of lament. Whether by journaling, writing short prayers or poems, or listening to heartfelt music, lament reminds me that God is not absent in the troubles of my life. Without God’s presence and the comforting promises found in the Bible, my grief would only end in despair. In lament, I can admit my troubles with boldness by telling God these circumstances are too much for me.”
What will we do with materials related to a pacesetter who has since justly been faraway from his place after committing some act or sample of disqualifying immorality? What ought to we do?
