Do you remember the events of 2011? God removed seven men from power that year.
This post is mainly excerpted from Dr. Timothy Keller’s excellent Preaching in a Secular Culture.
His advice is not just for preachers but is also useful for teaching a Bible study or giving a short testimony. What we say and how we say it should point people to Jesus. I’m only presenting his four main points and some quotes. I’m only scratching the surface here of a very rich nine-page document. It’s worth your time to read and absorb it. The rest of this post are quotes from Dr. Keller’s original work.
Did you see the recent study on how the Earth makes water? The current popular theory is that asteroids brought water to our planet. Really? When 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water? This new discovery makes more sense.
Jesus is our example in sharing our faith with others. The following is a portion from the devotional, “A Good Witness,” sent out by Truth for Life.
The En-Gedi scroll is a unique archaeological discovery in many ways. Unearthed in 1970, this ancient scroll was the first to be found in a synagogue excavation. In addition, it was also the first to be found still in an ark.
I’ve decided it’s about time I read Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ and learn the story the way the general intended it to be told. Perhaps the book or the film will prompt you to study, too, to see if Jesus really is God, as He claimed.
The popular Perseid meteor shower offers great viewing this year with up to 200 meteors per hour at its peak.
I highly recommend subscribing to daily devotionals from Truth for Life.
Whatever I am refusing to die to will make authentically following Jesus “impossible”.
Risen definitely rises to the top of my list of recommended movies about the events surrounding Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.
I learned of a free download of the ESV Global Study Bible today. Take a few minutes and get your copy. The English Standard Version is the Bible translation we’ve had recommended to us.
