Slow to Speak

The suffering of loved ones often comes unannounced, an unwelcomed intruder bent on stealing joy and hope. Without warning, we are thrust into the role of comforter, yearning to bring peace immediately through whatever means necessary – hugs, tears, and often far too...

Did You Know That Charles Spurgeon Struggled with Depression?

6 Things Christ Accomplished by His Death – “Two implications. First, this is very humbling. Second, “Greater love has no one than this, than he lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).”

Moses Without the Supernatural — Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” – “As a film, Exodus: Gods and Kings is a mixed bag. I was deeply moved by parts of the film, and puzzled or troubled by others. But, in the end, perhaps the best way to understand Ridley Scott’s Moses is to put it in the context of Scott’s own comments. He told Religion News Service: “Any liberties I have taken in terms of how I show this stuff was, I think, pretty safe ground because I’m always going always from what is the basis of reality, never fantasy . . . . So the film had to be as real as I could make it.” As real, in other words, as Ridley Scott’s version of “this stuff” could be presented “from what is the basis of reality” as Ridley Scott defines reality. What we see in the film is Moses without the supernatural. In his own words, that’s how he decided to “play” it.”

Missions: Why Evangelize? – “Christians ought never to be smug, but always to speak and act as the beggars that they are, fully convinced that the only difference between them and the rest of the perishing world is that by God’s sovereign mercy they have come to learn where their bread is found, and they want others to know it too. Christians have received the greatest message there is, the best news that anyone can ever hear. How will you share it with others before it is too late?”

The Most Misunderstood Bible Verse – “I encourage readers to examine Jeremiah 29:11 on their own. Read through the entirety of chapters 28 and 29 to understand the context and learn what God is saying to His people. Study several translations to glean the message. Most of all, resist the temptation to interpret the verse through the lens of your fleshly desires. Instead, ask the Lord to reveal His truth to you through His Holy Spirit. As you do, His word will come alive in a way you may never have experienced.”
