Eddie,

Scripture should shape how we pray for our unbelieving friends and family. The Bible teaches us that no one come to Christ ‘unless the Father draws him,’ and so we lift those words from the Bible and ask God to draw the person to Christ. Likewise, Scripture says that the Holy Spirit convicts the world of ‘sin and righteousness and judgement,’ and so we pray that God would convict the person of sin. Wherever the Bible speaks of the process of a person becoming a Christian, we can use that instruction to inform our praying for the unsaved.

Eddie,

LOVE IS being unwilling to do what is wrong when you have been wronged, but looking for concrete and specific ways to overcome evil with good.

Eddie,

(On 2 Cor 4:3-6): Notice that in the case of unbelievers there is a satanic element to their lack of comprehension. The ‘god of this world’ is actively trying to keep them from understanding the gospel. We must not be naive about the nature of evangelism – when we engage in evangelism, we are in direct conflict with Satan.

Letter from ‘lockdown’ – part 2

Tim Stephenson,

Today’s devotional focuses on Philippians 1:3-5. If Paul’s comfort was his primary goal, his visit to Philippi was a total failure. But ten years later, from his imprisonment in Rome, he thanks the Christians of Philippi for the support and thanks God for the Philippians. Who are you giving thanks for today?

Eddie,

Simply put, any thought, word, or deed that compromises our ability to love God and neighbour is folly.

Eddie,

LOVE IS making a daily commitment to grow in love so that the love you offer to another is increasingly selfless, mature, and patient.

Eddie,

The tithe is God’s historical method to get us on the path of giving. In that sense, it can serve as a gateway to the joy of grace giving.
