The Daily Roundup: 10 November 2014

Hearing and Reading God’s Word – “The spiritual disciplines are scriptural paths where we encounter the transforming grace of God. The most critical discipline is one’s intake of Scripture. The primary reason why people don’t read the Bible is because they don’t discipline themselves and aren’t motivated to do it.”

Three Ways Evangelism Can Be More Believable – “So yes the gospel is believable. It is the answer, but the question is how? Which metaphor do people need to hear? What are they looking for? If we question the mind, aim for the heart, and select the appropriate gospel metaphor, we’ll share a gospel more worth believing.”

Three Ways Evangelism Can Be More Believable – “Whenever we read in the text of Scripture our Lord giving a statement that is prefaced by the double “amen,” it is a time to pay close attention and be ready to give our response with a double amen to it. He says “amen” to indicate truth; we say it to receive that truth and to submit to it.”

Homosexuals in the Church: Keep Reading in Ephesians – “To say that my Christianity does not place demands on my sexuality is simply to deny the Lordship of Jesus Christ over one of the most integral matters of life. Whatever the matter may be, whether our sexuality, our use of money, or the way that we treat people at work, Christ is Lord and he does insist that we change, even as he clothes us in his righteousness and empowers us by the Holy Spirit.”

Sign Up for Paul Tripp’s Thanksgiving Devotional – “Crossway invites you to sign up and receive a daily email devotional to help you prepare your heart for Thanksgiving. Adapted from his latest book New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional, these short devotions from Paul David Tripp only take 5 minutes to read, but will spur you to reflect on God’s Word all day long.” If that was not good enough, those who sign up will be entered to win one of 50 really cool mustache mugs.
