The Joy of Cleaning up Email

One of joys of cleaning up email subscriptions is finding just the subscriptions you want to keep that enrich and build up your life in Christ. Earlier this year I began a cull of emails where most had gone directly to archives and were never read; but they took up space. Over 20 GB of storage was saved in the process. And during the culling, I made a focused effort of only keeping those subscriptions that would be read, that enriched my life in Christ with sound Biblical doctrine, that helped me hear about the needs of Christian’s around the world, and allow for the occasion for local or newsworthy distractions.

One such email that I enjoy receiving is from Truth for Life with Alistair Begg. And today was a gem! Truth for Life presented a beautiful wallpaper with scripture, a link to a hymn of worship which included a fantastic message on Guarding the Gospel. This came after I read a new article by Samuel Farag on Crit-Large concerning the False Gospel of Bethel (Bethel Music, Jesus Culture, Bethel Redding).

I hope you will take the time to listen to the message by Alistair Begg and then also read the article from Samuel Farag on the wolves at Bethel. I’ve been reading up on Bethel for over six months now. The more I read and watch, I’m thankful for men of God who are calling out the wolves. We must Guard the Gospel.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Is Calvinism Good for the Church? Renewing Your Mind with Burk Parsons

Is Calvinism Good for the Church? In today’s Renewing Your Mind, Burk Parsons, explores how “Calvinist convictions should not make us contentious, they should make us more like Christ….correct[ing] common misconceptions about Reformed theology.” Renewing Your Mind, July 9, 2019, https://renewingyourmind.org/2019/07/09/is-calvinism-good-for-the-church 

One of my favorite ways to start the day after morning devotion is to listen to Renewing Your Mind. And today’s broadcast is one I had to share! This is an excellent ministry from Ligonier. Check out Ligonier’s website for excellent study resources, podcasts, books, Bibles and other resources.

Dispatches From the Front

I came across Frontline Missions clips on youtube and my comfortable, Christian life was shaken to the core. I’ve ordered the DVD set from Christianbooks.com and then later came across their site that offers streaming options. Before the DVD’s get here, I streamed the Every Tribe video of Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam. This is must see for all Christians. As John Piper warned, “Beware of watching these dispatches if you don’t like being moved and inspired and shaken out of the ruts of your life.” Because you will be — all three of what John Piper said.

Frontline Missions International works for the advance of the Gospel – watch as workers advance the Kingdom of God in the most difficult places. See the Gospel changes lives. You can also order the DVD’s from the Frontline Missions store.

Their prayer:

that Dispatches will magnify our God. It will unite our hearts with our brothers and sisters in different parts of the world. It will awaken us out of our comfortable Christianity. It will expand our vision of the King and His powerful Gospel.

4 Episodes are available for streaming as linked below:

Southeast Asia – Islands on the Edge

West Africa – I Once was Blind

Ethiopia and South Sudan – Father, Give me Bread

Cambodia, Laos, & Vietnam – Every Tribe

All 10 episodes are available via DVD.

Luke 11:1-4 (ESV)

Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.” And he said to them, “When you pray, say:

“Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread,
and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us.
And lead us not into temptation.”
