Quote of the Day

“The Word of God gives us great help in attaining the peace we need. It is living, very lively and active in seizing the conscience of the sinner, in cutting him to the heart, and in comforting him and binding up the wounds of the soul. It is powerful. It convinces powerfully, converts powerfully, and comforts powerfully.”

Matthew Henry

Why We Must Reignite the Empire of the Mind

“In 1943, Winston Churchill interrupted his regular routine of nighttime writing, early morning bathtaking, and all-day world-saving to deliver a speech at Harvard University. At one point in the speech, Churchill delivered one of his greatest epigrams: ‘The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.'”

Following Rob Bell: The Edges of Faith and the Center of the Zeitgeist

“These days, the real adventurers are those who set sail for the risky land of Christian orthodoxy. The real brave men and women are those who consistently go to church, observe the sacraments, hear the word, and submit themselves to the discipline of the church.

Those may not be the memoirs we’re interested in today, but they’ll be the ones that last tomorrow.”

It’s easy to assume someone serving ‘in ministry’ has things all together, but you and I both know this can certainly be far from the truth at times. Church leaders are human, which means they are fallible (*gasp!*) and will never perfectly exhibit these characteristics of healthy church leaders.”

5 Questions with a Time Magazine Person of the Year

“Dr. Kent Brantly and his wife, Amber, put a name and face on the Ebola epidemic during the summer of 2014. The missionary couple was serving in Monrovia, Liberia, when Kent got the devastating news that he had contracted the deadly disease.”

Did Jesus Speak Greek?

“I was somewhat surprised, after I posted about Jesus’ use of the diminutive κυνάριον in his delightful conversation with the Syrophoenician woman (Matt 15:26–27), to have several people make comments like this one:

‘Was the historical Jesus really speaking Greek with the woman? If not, then many things change about your study and conclusions.'”
