Quote of the Day
“God is pleased to use Scripture to pierce the heart and awaken us to faith… History is replete with stories of how great people were converted through the power of the Word.”
R. C. Sproul
“One of the best ways to reach your community is to take the time to understand your community and what makes it unique.”
“After graduating into a lackluster job market, Lauren McGoodwin needed some career guidance. She eventually got a job working as a recruiter for a big company but still felt there was a lack of career development resources available to young women—so she decided to create her own.”
“If your house is like mine, the Christmas cards are now arriving at full blast. Some come with letters and notes, some with inscriptions and Christmas messages. The most explicitly Christian cards often feature a manger scene or another biblical scene related to the birth of Christ. Angels are common, of course, usually portrayed in majestic pose ready to announce the birth of Christ.”
“What does it mean to be ‘called’? Roll the question over in your mind; perhaps there’s more to it than what you see. ‘Called’ is not a trifling word. At the very least, it implies a caller. And as Sinclair Ferguson has noted, ‘called’ is one of the New Testament’s most frequent one-word descriptions of the Christian. When God repeats himself, men should listen up.”
“I’ve always been amazed by Jesus’ response to Satan’s first temptation: ‘if you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread’ (Matthew 4:3). I picture Jesus there, looking at the stones. His ribs are poking out, and his body is worn away after 40 days of fasting. But even in extreme hunger, Jesus prioritizes spiritual food above our physical food: ‘man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God’ (Matthew 4:4).”
