Sprout Social : Let us arise and go up to Bethel, so that I may make there an altar to the God who answers me in the day of my distress and has been with me wherever I have gone.” Genesis 35:3

In the stillness of your heart make every place such an altar to the never-forsaking Christ.

• Does a text have just one meaning?
• Is expositional preaching best—or biblical?
• Is it necessary for a healthy church? 9marks.org/pastors-talk/e…

iPhone : Look at the difference! Charles Bota and I became friends in the 1980s (almost 40 years ago) during our college days. He soon became my Ira Sankey and I became his D L Moody. These 2 photos contrast 20 years of close friends serving Christ together—and having good wives. Wow!

Twitter Web App : TMI “Too Much Information” sums up our culture. We are drowning in a tsunami of information. The data stream that became a river that became an ocean is drowning us.

But although there is a tsunami of information, there is a drought of wisdom.

Twitter Web App : The single-most missing aspect in the church’s worship today is reverence.

How will Christians have a holy-awe of God if their church isn’t practically teaching them in worship to revere a holy God?
