Don’t Miss List 7.13.13

I realize it is a Saturday which is not the best day for posting. I had high hopes of writing this yesterday, but just couldn’t fit it in. So without further ado I give you today’s Don’t Miss list which includes some thoughts on being an ordinary Christian, Islam and a great video about preaching.

Ordinary Christians and a Great Commission 

Tim Challies shared some thoughts about “ordinary Christianity” this week that merit reading if you haven’t already. He wrote, “Answers come all through the New Testament and I find it fascinating that concern of the biblical writers is how to be ordinary, how to be normal. In their minds being ordinary offers challenge enough and to be normal is to honor God. Ordinary Christians carry out a Great Commission in ordinary ways through their ordinary lives.”

Islam: The Greatest Challenge to Christian Evangelism of Our Times

Al Mohler analyzes the political situation of Islam, but then gets to the heart of the matter as Christians: “As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and a minister of the gospel, my primary concern about Islam is not civilizational or geopolitical, but theological. I believe that Jesus Christ is indeed, “the Way, the Truth, and the Life,” and that no one comes to the Father but by him (John 14:6). Salvation is found only through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and the gospel of Christ is the only message that saves.”

The Biggest Mistakes Young Preachers Make

The Gospel Coalition has a great video of Voddie Baucham, Tullian Tchvidjian and Russell Moore on the biggest mistakes of young preachers. I think this discussion will edify pastors out there, but also laypeople. I know I appreciated it.

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
