Five Great Articles from 2019

December 26, 2019

As we approach the end of the year, I wanted to look back on some great articles published on Unlocking the Bible this year. I am so thankful for every writer who has contributed this year, and I’m thankful for all our readers who support us!

7 Realities Revealed in the Book of Revelation (Brad Wetherell)

The purpose of this post is not to engage (let alone settle) the common debates regarding Revelation. My goal is more simple and more general:

I want to show you some of the broad themes of Revelation that every Christian can agree upon, and every Christian needs to know. And, I want to encourage you to read and value Revelation.

When the Miracle You Prayed For Doesn’t Come (Lianna Davis)

He knows why He does not do; you and I might not understand now, in this present life, His wisdom. But could it be that He is doing beyond what we ask? Could it be that what He is working on our behalf is more than what we think? We do not grasp future glory; we cannot fathom what earthly sufferings are achieving for us (2 Corinthians 4:17). We don’t comprehend, but we can trust.

Three Biblical Prayers to Say for Your Parents (Chelsea Stanley)

We may look at our parents and think that their lives are relatively settled. In actuality, the “final quarter” can be filled with uncertainty. Our parents might be anxious about their health, financial investments, or their ability to care for aging loved ones. 

Using Scripture to Focus Your Prayers (Angie Ryg)

With each prayer, I find myself drawing closer to God. With each scripture I read, it is like a rush of life-giving breath that reminds me that I am not just on earth “doing the best I can,” but I serve a powerful God who cares deeply for me.   

He is the Lord of my life. He is Lord of all. Each Truth and Promise comes from the One who loves me enough to lay down His life for me. In this knowledge, I know that my prayers are readying me for an eternity of worshipping Jesus.

A Quiet Life Speaks for Christ (Grayson Pope)

The point of living a quiet life to be a good witness for Christ. Staying calm, minding your own business, and doing your own job is all about evangelism. And your witness is connected to your integrity.

A Call to Rest

In these days of stay-at-home orders and quarantines, there have been a good many blogs and social media posts on how believers can still work hard and use their time well. And rightly so (2 Thessalonians 3:6-12)! A hearty yes and amen! Some of us are tempted to idleness and...

10 Quotes from Dark Clouds • Deep Mercy

A book with a title like Dark Clouds • Deep Mercy will not likely make your “feel-good” top 10 reading list. So if you’ve gotten this far, it’s probably because you (or someone you know) is hurting, and you feel out of your depth. Well, you’ve come to the right...
