It's the long weekend here in the U.S. and so I have to confess - I took a break. Don't worry - I'll still be your teacher! We're going to walk through the Old Testament together in about 40 minutes.
As Christians we are required to treat the Scriptures with respect and use it correctly. Sometimes it's hard to understand what a passage is saying!
A number of people let me know how much they appreciated last week's Sunday School lesson with Dr. Voddie Baucham. In light of what's going on these days, I thought this follow-up message would be helpful.
Can you separate a movement from the organization behind it? I don't think you can.
In this week's installment of our online Sunday School class, we look at a poem (yes - I've read some poems) - A New Day by Heartsill Wilson.
Heartsill Wilson was an accountant in Texas who also worked on the sales staff of Chrysler. Considered one of the finest sales consultants of that automotive industry, he was one of the most respected motivational speakers of his time.
This week we're looking at the book "Be A People Person" by John C. Maxwell. Released in 1989, it's still as relevant today as the day it was published.
When we think leadership, influence and motivating people for their benefit, we think about all the ways we can reach people with the Gospel.
If people were asked to name 5 of the most influential Christian books of the 20th century, there is no doubt that today's book would be on the list. "My Utmost For His Highest" by Oswald Chambers, first published in 1917, continues to mold and shape Christians even today.
The book is a one year, daily devotional with tremendous insights into the Christian life.
Today's lesson comes from May 17th - The Habit of Rising to the Occasion.
