5 Key Connections: Evangelism, Creation

August 22, 2019

Here are 5 key passages from recent Christian articles around the web, including an article on evangelism, one on creation, and more!

But God: The Two Sweetest Words In The Bible (Stephen Altrogge, the blazing the center)

If we’re going to understand the beauty of the words “But God” then we must come to terms with who we were. We truly were spiritually dead. We were gladly following Satan. And we were actively, zealously carrying out the sinful desires of our flesh.

How Can I Cultivate a God-Centered Life? (Colin Smith, Unlocking the Bible)

The world wants you to believe that everything is stable, secure, and permanent. But it is not so. The home that you live in is yours for a time. The work that you do is yours for a time. The people you love are yours for a time.

How Jesus Prays for You (Hywel R. Jones, Core Christianity)

John 17 has been known as the “High Priestly Prayer” of the Lord Jesus Christ for many years. Its opening words make it clear that it was a prayer Jesus himself prayed, and it is essential to give full weight to that fact. But this does not mean that Christians may not use this prayer in appropriate ways. It is important that they should do so. It has significant bearings on the faith and life of the church because the incarnate Son was talking with his own Father about their saving intervention in a fallen world.

God’s Commitment to Creation (Ian K. Smith, Crossway)

Is the world so broken that God will abandon it, and we will need to find a home elsewhere? Is heaven a place for eternal refugees, that we might live in a home that was not made for us (unless we are angels)? The recurring answer of both Testaments of Scripture is that the world is not so broken that God cannot fix it. 

College Students Are Back: Are You Ready to Disciple Them? (Tony Beard, GCD)

It’s vital to pass along the gospel to the next generation. If we don’t prepare and equip them, who will preach to the generation after them? Here we can learn from the Old Testament.
