Luke 18:1-8 “Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart, saying, “In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not respect man. “There was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, ‘Give me legal protection from my opponent.’ “For a while he was unwilling; but afterward he said to himself, ‘Even though I do not fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow bothers me, I will give her legal protection, otherwise by continually coming she will wear me out.'” And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge *said; now, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them? “I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” NASB
Just another quick blog update to let you know that you can now sign up for my monthly missions e-newsletter, which will have updates on what is going on here at School of the Bible, both stories and pictures. This is different content than what is on this blog. This newsletter will be sent out towards the end of each month. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
First off, please accept my apologies for the lack of blog updates lately. Life has been a bit busy, and I have also been focusing primarily on my first e-book (more information to come in the future), though I have plenty of ideas to blog about! Hoping to start updating this blog more regularly again though.
I also wanted to say a big thank you to all my readers, for your support and encouragement.
Finally, I wanted to announce that I will soon be launching a monthly e-newsletter with specific updates on what I am doing each month at School of the Bible. This content will be different than what is posted on the blog, so keep your eyes peeled, as I will be adding a subscription option for that in the very near future.
Have a great day!
I just finished watching a video on youtube of some kind of flash mob doing Christmas caroling at a mall. Amazing voices, surprised smiles, and spontaneous involvement by onlookers there, along with the requisite number of people filming the whole thing on their phones as it happened. (Ah, the joys of modern technology. 😉 )
Note: this is a bit of a flashback post, as it was written a year or so ago, but I think it still rings true.
It’s Christmas, the “most wonderful time of the year.” My favorite season. I’ve been doing some unexpected thinking this Christmas though-thoughts that came from an odd combination of hearing Christmas songs, and reading a friend’s facebook postings describing the current development of their unborn baby. Oftentimes the descriptions I hear about Christ coming to earth, either in song or word, make it sound as if it was just a quick step out of Heaven. A long step, yes. A drastic, humbling step. But just a step. As if one minute He was in heaven, and the next minute He was that little baby in the manger.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the way God acts and reacts with the world He created, how we respond to Him, and how He responds to us. It’s a two-way relationship, not a one-sided thing. (As you can see, I’m quite good at stating the obvious.)
I have a lot bubbling up in my brain right now, words that need to be sorted out to be shared on this blog. I’m excited, but also praying hard that what I write will be clear, and more than that that it will line up with scripture.
Last time I checked, I wasn’t infallible, and I can be as biased as the next person, but there are some things I think I “get” at some level, and I’m planning on writing a lot more about that next week.
For tonight however, things are just cooking inside. Concepts marinating to be shared shortly. Thank you everyone for your patience! (And yes, there will be something fun up tomorrow for Free Form Friday.)
They say confession is good for the soul. Well, here’s my confession: today in class, I pulled a knife on one of my students. Intentionally.
Hi all! Thanks to everyone who is checking in on my blog.
The good news is, I have new content ready to post. The bad news is, the internet is having issues here, so I may or may not be able to actually upload it tonight. So please be patient with my little blog this week. More regular posting will resume when possible.
