How Paul interpreted Jesus

  • 20 May 2015

Matt Perman:
 
“One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven and come, follow me” (Luke 18:22).

Is this something that God commands every Christian to do?

Many are puzzled by that question, because if we say “yes,” it immediately seems impractical. On the other hand, if we say “no,” we seem to be diminishing the force of Jesus’ command.

What was the Purpose of the OT Tabernacle?

  • 4 May 2015

Sam Storms provides 3 reasons for the Tabernacle:

First, the exquisite construction of the tabernacle and the aesthetic perfection of its furnishings and the intricate design sewn into the embroidered material, together with the veil and the gold and the variety of colors throughout were all designed to serve as a visual sermon declaring the beauty of God. Everything in the tabernacle and later in the Temple pointed to the glory and grandeur and splendor of God.

What does it mean to successful?

Whether you are a pastor, an accountant, a school teacher, a stay-at-home mom, an office manager, a construction worker, an engineer, or any other occupation – if you are a believer in Jesus Christ – this question pertains to you. What does it mean to be successful?

Why does God always demand praise?

  • 9 February 2015

In his book, Reflections on the Psalms (Chapter ix), C.S. Lewis outlines how he came to understand the necessity of praising God:

I had not noticed either that just as men spontaneously praise whatever they value, so they spontaneously urge us to join them in praising it: “Isn’t she lovely? Wasn’t it glorious? Don’t you think that magnificent?” The Psalmists in telling everyone to praise God are doing what all men do when they speak of what they care about.

Memorise the Greatest Chapter in the Bible in 2015

  • 30 December 2014

Romans 8 is widely regarded as the greatest chapter in the greatest book of the Bible.

Martin Luther called Romans: 

The chief part of the New Testament, and the very purest gospel. It is well worth a Christian's while not only to memorize it word for word but also to occupy himself with it daily.

He went on to say that: 

If the Bible were a ring then Romans would be a the gem that enhanced that ring...Romans 8 would be the brilliant splendor that emanated from that ring

Resources for Advent 2014

  • 1 December 2014

Advent, meaning "coming" or "arrival", is the four week period running up to Christmas, beginning on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day. For some this is a special time of the year to reflect more deeply on the coming of Jesus into the world to save sinners. Although we should always be thinking on these things, there is value in celebrating special seasons each year. As one authors puts it "When evertything is special, nothing is. God wants us to cultivate a biblical cadence and rhythm to our lives, and not a constant pounding 1".
