First I want to thank...
Posted on January 16, 2009

You may have noticed that the bowl season is over. I am slowly being weaned off of ESPN and Fox Sports. I do not follow pro sports anymore so for me, football season is over.


It was striking to me that in most cases when the winning whatever position was interviewed after the game said something to the effect, “First I want to thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for giving me the ability to be here.” I am glad they got the opportunity to do that. Does that mean that there were no Christians on the other team? I have noted that in interviewing the loosing players I do not recall that sentence being the first thing said.

Favor with Men
Posted on January 14, 2009

Last week was good.


You may have had weeks like that one. Weeks where everything you did seemed to really work well; a week where you were effective in ways that were exceptional. That was my week. I had great meetings with men in organizations where I was able to use my gifts in ways that I have rarely been able to before. Some of the meetings seemed to be especially impactful. Further I got several emails that were encouraging.

Listening Prayer
Posted on January 12, 2009

In our small group we have been studying listening prayer. It has been a good study we have been looking at both examples of God speaking to His people as well as passages on God’s communication through the Holy Spirit to us as believers.


One of the passages we looked at this last week was Ephesians 6 10-20. In verse 18 Paul tells the Ephesian believers to, “…pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints…” Sometimes in Bible study something I read will spin me off. By that a number of verses will come to mind that relate to the verse or topic being addressed by the passage I am studying. In this case the verse that came to mind was I Thessalonians 5:16 – 18, “Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

New Bible Study Resource
Posted on January 02, 2009

Logos recently sent me the inaugural issue of their new publication, Bible Study Magazine. One of the ways I judge a publication is the quality of the contributors. This inaugural issue has a good stable of writers and subjects.


The cover story is an exploration of how Josh McDowell defends and studies the Bible. The core of the article is his approach on how to approach people on the reality of Christ. If you are interested in leading people to Christ or find yourself in conversations where you are searching for a way to proceed, this will help.
