Imperfections Make Sundays More Beautiful … Last week I sent over a note about distractions in worship - - this week a healthy reminder that there are no Perfect Sundays. Matt Merker writes: “I’ll admit it: these human quirks and errors sometimes exasperate me. I’m here to focus on the Lord! Your awkwardness is distracting me from worship! So mutters my self-righteous heart. Perhaps the real problem isn’t with the clumsiness of others, but with our expectations for corporate worship.” You can read the rest HERE.
Some Thoughts on Intercessory Prayer from Me and Dietrich Bonhoeffer … David Qaoud writes: “When we talk about praying for others, we usually do so because they have some sort of need (health issue, medical issue, etc.). These sorts of prayer often dominate when “prayer requests” are brought up at small groups and other church-sponsored events. We are almost always inclined to pray for people we love. But what about your enemies? What about the people who annoy you? Do you pray for them?” You can read the rest HERE.
The 99-Year-Old Who Asked for a New Heart … Jordan Standridge write: “It’s never too late to give your life to Jesus. It doesn’t matter how old you are. It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve shared the Gospel with your family member. As long as they have breath in their lungs they can still receive a new heart. Because the Gospel doesn’t depend on the works of a person but is an instantaneous miracle of God upon the heart of a sinner, we know that anyone can be saved at any time.” You can read the rest HERE.
