At the moment’s Kindle offers embody simply a few titles, one thing that’s uncommon for the primary of the month. However I simply ran out of time to go looking; I’ll hope for higher issues tomorrow.
Logos customers will wish to try the free (and closely discounted) books of the month—varied key volumes from the works of Jonathan Edwards.
(Yesterday on the weblog: When Jesus Says “Stay”)
How unusual is that this? “The free show, whose tickets were gone a few minutes, was held at the Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre. After about thirty minutes of gospel music, it happened. My friend and fellow-graduate of the Master’s Seminary, pastor Adam Tyson, stood up to preach. What would you do if Kanye West asked you to preach at one of his shows? Pastor Adam stood up and boldly preached a fantastic sermon from Isaiah 6.”
“When asked to serve, we tend to think, Why should I? And as we begin to process the question, we remind ourselves that we are already quite busy. Current commitments make this type of service unfeasible. But who isn’t busy? Seriously. Think about the last person who told you they weren’t busy. Everyone’s busy—or at least we think we are. It’s so easy to dismiss needs like this.”
It’s like this one was written for my ladies. “High schooler, consider this your notification: there are students all over this world who are fully dedicated to loving Jesus through obedience. You aren’t alone, even though you may feel like it. Your people are out there, and when you find them, get ready for some of the greatest blessings that God gives. High school is so much shorter than it feels. Just keep your eyes on Jesus and be patient, always remembering that the road less traveled leads to true fulfillment.”

I will admit some of this raises my own eyebrow, and none of it is beyond biblical scrutiny, but in terms of proving a charge of false teaching, I should say I find these catalogs of alleged malfeasance a bit…lacking. And here’s why…”
Right here’s some encouragement for preachers and evangelists.
There’s fascinating stuff to think about on this transient take a look at rights and obligations by means of the pen of John Body.
I really like this! “On the first Sunday of 2019, our church started a Sunday evening service. Actually, it’s more accurate to say that we ‘resurrected’ it. Like many churches, our Sunday night service died a slow death years earlier. The funeral was over by the time I became pastor. For the next several years, most of us were content to keep it buried.”
These, like me, who maintain to a six-day understanding of creation must face this query: Why does the universe look so previous? Why does it look older than it truly is?
Love breaks the maintain of individualism; it builds new communities out of the ashes of damaged and fragmented relationships. —Edward Welch
