How do you Pray for Fellow Believers?

This post was originally written by Peter for Biblical Preaching. We hope you visit it and enjoy. —————– There is a strange phenomena in the church when it comes to praying for people.  Obviously this is a generalisation, but I have observed it enough to suggest that it may be a pattern. When people become […]

Process & Product

God is devoted to a good outcome in whatever he does. Right from the beginning we find God making the heavens and the earth as “good,” “good,” and “very good.” We also find Jesus calling on his disciples to bear good fruit: “By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so […]

Space to Dream

We live in a world that seems to go faster every year. The phone in my pocket is faster than any computer I’d ever met just a few years ago. Emails, facebook updates, tweets, and so on, just keep coming faster and faster. I don’t want to sound critical about technology and the information age […]

Consumer Sheep Consumer Shepherd

Churches feel increasingly pressured to vie for the loyalty of attenders by means of tailored worship experiences, styles of preaching, and so on. Meanwhile, as churches give the best fare they can generate, the majority […]

Faithful

An unlikely Old Testament hero—the African eunuch, Ebed-melech—offers us a model of courage. We first meet him in Jeremiah 38 when he rescued Jeremiah. The prophet was in trouble—discarded to die in a muddy cistern—until Ebed-melech acted. In the rescue this African’s faith invites admiration and imitation. And through his story we gain another facet […]
