The Parable of the Sower 1 Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it out on the lake, while all the people were along the shore at the water’s edge. 2 He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: 3 “Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along...
Romans 13:1-7 1 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right,...
Tehillah camp post #2 - Heart
As promised, here’s my follow on/intro post for my previous post on yours-devotion. (directly below unless someone blogs very soon). So this study gospel in life (from Tim Keller) is quite confronting. And shows you all the parts of the life you turn a blind eye to unwittingly or not. The parts with problems. And Satan rejoices when you do so. So how to change? The study starts appropriate...
Re: love, work and dreams
Check out the OP here: @ Crossing-Kidron Someone asked me what are the main issues for a young person in life, to which I responded “love, work and dreams”. … In actual fact, I believe that our pursuits of love, work and dreams should be driven, directed and provided to and from God. While we go along in life in pursuit of love, and working hard to achieve our dreams, we often think only...
Creation or Creator?
Let me start and ask you the question. What does the world think is sin? I guess more importantly, do you think the modern Australian think he or she is a sinner? Do you think the average person would think they are lacking? I think most people I know quite confidently say there’s nothing wrong with their lifestyle. After all it’s our own choice how we live! Sure some of us may live...
Music and Singing Praises
So, yesterday I decided that I wanted to find some verses in the bible that spoke of music, but to my dismay, “music”, “sing” and “song” were not in the concordance. Thus I decided to search around on the internet for some verses, and one of the first pages that I came across was this. I like this page. Although I can’t say that my life revolves around...
Ooo… we have more followers now! That means I gotta post more stuff so it doesn’t look like George is the only person alive here :D
Romans 1:18-32 Preview
Wrath is the demonstration of of anger. Unrighteousness is the opposite of righteousness. Righteousness is the act of being “right” Before we start explaining the gospel to anyone, before filling them with notions of love and immortality, we have to explain to our friends, our family, the stranger that they are subject to God’s wrath. Why? Because of our sin. However...
Romans has to be the greatest letter, if not the greatest book in the Bible (much debate because I also think the Gospels are the greatest books too :D ). After finishing reading it, you cannot simply say being Christian is just an emotional thing. It is not just something for us to feel good nor is it subjective. Romans shows us that being a Christian takes intellectual thought. Taking facts and...
SEB POST SOMETHING– ME
Hear the word spoken
I love listening to bible recordings while I’m driving . It’s better than listening to trashy music on the radio. To have it in the background is nice and when i hear something important, im more motivated to get deeper into it that night. Likewise it’s good to converse with each other about the bible. Why not spend a conversation with someone you know about bible readings?...
I can’t comment on stuff here ?– me
Hebrews Chapter 1:1-4 1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had...
is death the end?
So Bible @ Campus UC finished chapter 11 and you can’t help feel there is a real strong theme of DEATH. Death isn’t exactly the greatest thing we talk about. Look at the sisters in their anguish. It’s painful to lose someone ain’t it? However despite this, Martha still believes in Jesus. Well maybe not now, Lazarus probably smelling really bad by now… Yet Jesus is the conqueror of death!...
be a roMAN
Hello guys! So I just finished Romans and I will post a video up here (and on my youtube channel too) about what I thought about it. It will be less than 6 minutes long and yeah. does this count seb :D
Book of Hebrews
Yo! I’m always kind of apprehensive about doing the first post of a blog. The initial entry sets the tone for what the rest of the blog as a whole is about, so hopefully this post goes alright! And you may notice that the passage here is the one that’s on the right of the blog. Hebrews 10:23-25 This little passage was actually part of the massive bible reading that we did in bible...
