“I have carefully and thoroughly read the entire book as assigned.” Throughout David Platt’s book, “Radical : Taking Back Your Faith From the American Dream”, he encourages the reader to take a look at their life and see whether or not Christ is all they need to impact their life for Jesus in a radical way. He asks the reader to carefully examine their life, and see if there are areas that perhaps the Lord would desire for change to take place. Platt challenges the Church to step up and see the urgency in missions realizing that this is the way God designed the lost and dying world to hear the Good News of the Risen and Glorified Savior Jesus Christ.
These characteristics that Smith showed are traits that have been an embedded part of American history. John also has a unique leadership quality to him. He is able to bring people together to endure the newly found difficulties that is settling into a new environment. This type of behavior is called “grace under pressure”. This type of behavior exhibits in Smith the willingness to embark on a new journey, once again proving that he lives for the adventure, and wants to see the same type of traits performed in the colonies. Finally, Smith usually presents himself as the hero of the story. One
The book renewed hope and excitement for a pastor coming to the end of transitioning a local church from one chapter into a new one. This hope is not because the process is almost complete, but because of MacDonald’s focus on people being greater than the process. This reviewer was renewed in his heart for the real people he is pastoring. Those that are still on the team and in the family have weathered the storm as well, and are ready to be lead to wherever God might take
And so it did with the utmost compliancy, cutting through the thick darkness and rushing on the sunrise, the lamp among other things succeeded in revealing the silhouette of a slim figure carrying with him a suitcase and a lifetime of troubles. Like most of the patriarchs living in Northbrook he was returning from work in the Loop, but unlike the rests he came bearing bad news to his wife and kid. It had been a very trying day for John R. Smith, a very trying day indeed, the kind of day that causes a man to rethink the validity of his life choices, weigh his worth, and most of all make
After a massive earthquake devastated Haiti in 2010, forcing many Haitians to live in unfathomable conditions, and I felt called to help them. I recall sitting in my elementary school classroom, watching live footage of the trauma in Haiti, asking myself how I could help. It wasn’t until my junior
Their trip to India lasted less than a year because the people wanted evidence to prove that Jesus was really the Son of God. The people did not understand that the Bible is the Word of God. The Osborns returned home but T. L. Senior and Junior were both ill. I went to McMinnville, Oregon, to accept the pastorate at Full Gospel Church. To overcome their failures, they believed they needed more of God’s power. In their search they studied the Scriptures, sermons, books, and biographies. They tried to contact people with miracle ministries but were unable to reach them. They
Mormon Exodus We gather here today for the loss of Joseph Smith our beloved prophet with our new prophet Brigham Young I will now turn the time to him. We are very sad the circumstance Brother Smith was put in and we know he is in a better place after such
In addition to worshiping and We did so by helping the Ferguson family with their daily household chores as well as help the residents of the Therapy Center with some of their jobs. We shared God’s love by helping the residents with tasks like picking plums, making jam, and helping them rebuild a wall on one of their sheds. We assisted the Ferguson family in helping take care of their two boys and newborn daughter, clearing and preparing their garden, making and canning pasta sauce, making a concrete driveway and helping rebuild their shed. Because we were staying in the Therapy center and were very far from any cities, we ate our meals in the nearby castle where we had a cook prepare our meals. Every morning, during breakfast, we did a devotion and every evening, after dinner, we had a little worship service, and sometimes the residents would join us.

Working long hours in the sun, surrounded by children, and all the while placing their needs before your own may not be everyone’s ideal summer, however, it was amazing to see God work in spite of the counselors’ exhaustion, frustrations, and fears to have His word shared. This summer, I worked as a wrangler, and was at the barn on a daily basis. General care of the horses and teaching children to conquer their fears and ride an animal more than twice their size consisted of the majority of my day. When not at the barn, I found spontaneous opportunities to share the gospel with the campers in my cabin and had the joy of praying with a few to accept Christ as their
John Wesley has been recognized for his holy life and his good works for the poor. His heart was transformed through his conversion experience, which became a momentum to pursue good works in order to be accepted in God’s eyes. He and the Methodist communities reached out to those in need, providing their physical and spiritual needs by feeding the hungry, clothing the needy and spreading the gospel.
With an appropriate balance of the condemnation of God’s Law and the saving grace of the Gospel, the chapel service of September 28 teaches us about both aspects of the word of God. Beginning the sermon with the powerful phrase “you are rich,” Pastor Ferguson immediately showers the congregation with the immense and joyful gift of God’s love and mercy, and the fortune of the American people. He, of course, must qualify the statement of the congregation being “rich” as the demographics of it are mostly students with a lot of debt and continue with the value of a dollar across the world. Pastor continues with the many blessings that God has given us: “He has given us time, He has given us talents, and of course He has given us treasures,” thus
As Smith closes out his book he shares some sound information concerning we we flourish in our ministry. A calling is sacred, the preparation for that calling in ministry is essential, but if I cannot find a place to exercise my calling in the body of Christ I am likened to the unfaithful servant who buried his
Finney’s writing reflects a lot about revival; that it is a method for saving souls as well as changing people and, eventually, the society. Through revivalism, the church would introduce the millennial kingdom to the world. Finney acknowledges that revival brought good change radically and also that Christians ought to be effectively involved in transforming all areas of community.
