Key Connections: Studying, Pray for others, and more

May 23, 2019

Here are five of my favorite quotes from recent Christian articles, including the caring nature of when you study the Bible, pray for others, and more!

Three Marks of Every Man and Woman of God (Colin Smith, Unlocking the Bible)

Whatever you are facing in your life right now, here’s what you need to know. You are God’s man, God’s woman, bought by the precious blood of Christ, called to the blessing of life under the rule of God: The King of Kings and Lord of Lords, who alone is immortal, who lives in unapproachable light, to whom be glory and might forever.

How You Walk Matters for Eternity (Zach Kendrick, Servants of Grace)

Right living corresponds to right believing (Eph 4:18-19). When a person’s mind is not set on the things of God, it leads to a hardness of heart (unbelief). In turn, when a person is not trusting in the gospel of Christ and has become callous to the things of God, it leads to a life alienated from God (v.18). When a person’s heart is calloused to God in unbelief, they are more vulnerable to sin in three ways: sensuality, greed, and impurity.

Praying For You: Three Staggering Words That Change Everything (Stephen Altrogge, the blazing center)

When we pray for someone, we are asking the God of the universe to take action. He is the one who has all power, who rules over all things, who causes nations to rise and fall, who controls the seasons, and keeps the planets in order.

Dear Graduate, Get Wisdom and Be Wise (André Ballard, Unlocking the Bible)

We must be intentional about our lives. We need to think about where we are going before we end up there. Satan and the spiritual forces of darkness can only make suggestions and whisper in our ears those activities which displease the Lord.

But did you know that those who belong to God have a choice? We can think rightly about where we go and what we do.  

Study the Bible for the Sake of Others (Kelly Minter, LifeWay Voices)

We must be studying God’s Word diligently, learning from good teachers about His whole counsel, so that when we do have opportunities with those seeking to understand, we can engage them with the whole story instead of leaving them with a presentation.
