Top 5 Unlocking the Bible Articles of 2019 So Far

August 8, 2019

Instead of a Key Connections post this week, I thought I’d look back on the top 5 Unlocking the Bible articles from the year up to this point. If you have not yet read these articles, please do so!

1.)10 Questions for Examining Your Life (Colin Smith)

Examining your life is essential to your growth as a Christian believer. Seeing your own sins and failings will make it possible for you to confess, repent, find forgiveness, and grow in grace. These are the steps by which we move forward in the Christian life. If you can’t see your own failings, you can’t make progress.

2.) What’s The Secret to Living a Godly Life (Colin Smith)

You can’t love God more by loving life less. So how can you love God more? How can you grow in godliness? This is surely the significance of 1 Timothy 3:16, where Paul lifts up Jesus Christ and says “Great is the mystery of godliness.” What is the mystery or secret of godliness? Answer: Jesus Christ!

3.) 3 Biblical Prayers to Say for Your Parents (Chelsea Stanley)

In Ephesians, God commands us to honor our parents (Ephesians 6:2). The word “honor” in this verse means “to give weight.” We honor our parents, then, when we give them weight in our hearts and lives. One tangible way we do this as grown children is by giving them weight in our prayers.  

4.) Five Cliches You Won’t Find in the Bible (Nicholas Davis)

Instead of offering people more bad advice via Cliché-anity, let’s turn to offer them the whole truth, being fully honest so that we can always lead them toward the good news of Christianity. Let’s refrain from using clichés in our conversations with others. Let’s put “Christ” back into Christ-ianity.

5.) 27 Snapshots of New Testament Books of the Bible (Davis Wetherell)

Here is a list that offers a snapshot of all 27 New Testament books of the Bible. I hope you see Jesus Christ is at the center of each book. And, I hope you grow in worship of our Lord and Savior.
