  • What Can We Learn from Jesus About Evangelism?

    from Tim Challies Mar 18, 2009 Category: Ligonier Resources

    None of us possesses the power to convert another; yet we are called by God to share the Gospel. He is pleased to use us to bring others to faith. But what does that mean? What is true biblical evangelism? The book of John places strong emphasis on the theme of Gospel witness, including several instances of evangelism by Jesus Himself. In Jesus the Evangelist, Rev. Richard D. Phillips, senior minister of Second Presbyterian Church in Greenville, S.C., explains biblical principles for evangelism, the theology of the Gospel, and shows us Jesus' own practice of evangelism.   Keep Reading
  • Thanks Be to God

    from Knox Chamblin Mar 17, 2009 Category: Articles

    In December 2008, I turned seventy-three. Invited by Tabletalk to address younger generations "on matters pertinent to the faith," I thought of Psalm 71, the prayer of an elderly man. Says verse 18: "So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come." I seek to do so now. Keep Reading
  • All Hail the Power

    from Chris Donato Mar 16, 2009 Category: Articles

    "In Jesus' name we pray, Amen." Is this just habit, a formal closing in public prayer? Or, is it a powerful declaration that we who pray in that name are in him to whom that name belongs? Well, Christians from the time of Christ onward have prayed in the name of God's Son. But only for the past two-hundred years or so has that name been relegated to the end of every prayer. Even though in many prayers it may be added as an afterthought, a nice closing that informs others in the room the prayer is about to end, the practice itself became popular during this modern era when the deity of the Son was being everywhere challenged. Ending petitions to the Father in the name of Jesus was a way for orthodox Christians to defend his divinity. Keep Reading
  • Our Propensity for Ego

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Mar 15, 2009 Category: Articles

    If we would seek to preach to the mind, we also must encourage those in our hearing to receive the Word preached with their minds. The habits of their hearts will be shaped by the habits of their minds. If, strangely, they listen only to check the preacher's level of orthodoxy, if they seek only to have their intellects tickled, if they attend to preaching only that they might show forth their own erudition, it is not their minds but their egos that are not being preached to. Just as a deep and complex sermon, rather than a simple and straightforward one, can be a sign of a preacher getting in the way, a deep and complex analysis of a sermon by the adept layman can be a sign of a congregant getting in the way. Our minds always need to be exhorted to beware our propensity for ego. Keep Reading
