Saturday Sampler: November 6 — November 12

All of us teach the Bible in some capacity. Few of us officially lead Bible Study groups, perhaps, but we disciple other women and/or teach the Word to children. So Ryan Higgionbottom’s How to Make the Bible Come Alive in Knowable Word can encourage you. Actually, I think his post even applies to our expectations in reading the Bible for ourselves.

Leave it to Elizabeth Prata to blog Of Tweet-storms, cauldrons, and cesspools in The End Time. Standing firmly for truth has cost Elizabeth a lot, but she remains steadfast in her obedience to God. Her recent experience may inspire you to follow her example.

Writing for Gentle Reformation, Kyle E. Sims makes a comparison between going to the gym regularly and being faithful in our devotional time with the Lord. Stick To It isn’t a sanctimonious lecture scolding us for giving up on our Bible reading plans, however. Pastor Sims addresses us with compassion, helping us work through a few common struggles in maintaining a healthy devotional life. You might appreciate his encouragement.

Leading up to Thanksgiving, Michelle Lesley lists 25 Things I Forgot to Thank God For. Although this post is a repeat of one she wrote several years ago, its points haven’t aged one bit! Perhaps the Lord will use it to remind you of reasons to express your thanks to Him. (I especially like #22.)

David De Bruyan introduces his new series for the G3 Blog with Strange Lyre: The Pentecostalization of Christian Worship. I suspect his view won’t win him any popularity contests, but please take time to prayerfully consider what he has to say. You might be surprised (and even a little challenged) by his presentation, and maybe you can then think through the music in your own church.

Responding to the growing sympathy towards Christian Nationalism within some Reformed circles, Fivepointer of Hipandthigh writes Ecumenical Nationalism to question whether or not we should compromise pure devotion to the Lord for the sake of political gain. Please consider his argument.

Our God Reigns: The Foundation of Christian Conviction by Henry Anderson is both challenging and encouraging. This contribution to The Cripplegate depends on Scripture to make the connection between God’s sovereignty and our ability to be faithful to Him — even in the face of persecution.
