Grace: Weakness is Not Strength – “As we read the Scriptures, pray to the Lord, participate in the sacraments, and engage in community with other believers, we are continually reminded of who we are and who God is. We are weak, and he is strong. We need grace.”

Flee Youthful Passions, Pursue Christ – “Do you want to be the gold honorable vessel in God’s house? Remember then, again—the Word is not bound (2 Tim 2:9), Jesus is not dead (2:8), the truth of the Gospel must be guarded (1:14)—and the grace of God strengthens (2:1)! Flee youthful passions, and pursue your Christ.”

Jesus Is Better Than My Name Being Great – “In God’s grace, he may give some of us platforms for which to speak from, names for which people will know us, and ministries that will outlast us. These are good gifts from the Father and we can accept them as such. However, we must never seek the gifts themselves and ignore the Giver. Jesus is better than our names being great and that may mean we will simply “preach the gospel, die, and be forgotten.”

The University as a Cross-Cultural Mission – “The basic concept of Gospel threads is that we are swimming so deeply in these glorious Biblical themes that they can’t help but overflow into our everyday language. If we are tuned in, we will see opportunities to weave Gospel threads all around us.”
