I was hesitant to post quotes from this booklet that it might spoil the content. I already wrote a review on this book and it made to my 2019 best reads. A friend who is beginning to read Reformed books is considering to read a large volume on the Canons of Dort that I have to share the link of the review. Also it revived the idea to include some of my favorite quotes to further help someone looking for a resource about that momumental event. So here it is, finally after a year.

Anyways, here’s some quotes from the book, A Place Like Heaven by Samuel Miller published by Log College Press . If you like these quotes, please get the book by clicking here.

“…the Synod of Dort had, undoubtedly, a species of importance peculiar to itself, and altogether pre-eminent. It was not merely a meeting of the select divines of a single nation, but a convention of the Calvinistic world, to bear testimony against a rising and obtrusive error; to settle a question in which all the Reformed Churches of Europe had an immediate and deep interest. “

7 Ministry Lessons We Can Learn from John the Baptist

chgnlrh

In the gospels, John the Baptist had shown us the weight of ministerial work. In what would take a lifetime experience, looking at John’s brief ministry we can learn alot, that can help us in our own church and ministry. Here’s seven lessons we can learn from John the Baptist. For an in depth treatment of John, head over to this link.

He had one message to preach- (Matthew 3: 1,2; Mark 1:4) In our time when Christians are reaching people through blogs, Youtube videos, podcast, Zoom webinars and Facebook Live, we should make clear what is our main goal. That is, we should preach the gospel. This is the fulfillment of the Great Commission. But a few years before Jesus gave this monumental task to His disciples, John was already preaching the gospel. We can be busy in every aspect of our ministry but we shouldn’t forget our message.

“John came baptizing in the wilderness and proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.” — Mark 1:4 (CSB)

We as believer are carrying a message. The message is not about us, our church or denomination. Nor programs, methods, traditions or music. Our sole message is Christ and Him crucified. Our message is the most important message that everyone should hear. So lets be clear and proclaim it in our ministry.

He clearly knows who he is and his role (Matthew 3: 3; Matthew 3: 11)

When ask who is he is and who gave him authority to perform him his works, he response is sure and clear:

  “In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea  and saying, “Repent, because the kingdom of heaven has come near!”  For he is the one spoken of through the prophet Isaiah, who said:

A voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
Prepare the way for the Lord;
make his paths straight!”–Matthew 3:1–3 (CSB)

“I baptize you with water for repentance, but the one who is coming after me is more powerful than I. I am not worthy to remove his sandals. He himself will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” — Matthew 3: 11 (CSB)

Not only does he know who he is and his role but he knows his only duty he needs to perform. Having no clear path to take shouldn’t be the mark of our ministry.  In the midst of this multi-tasking culture, the church should not follow.  John is specifically doing one thing and that counts.

jbw2xs4

We now have the manuscript for the Tagalog translation of John Piper’s book Coronavirus and Christ. In the few days it will be available for free download. Meanwhile, the Tagalog audiobook will start recording next week. Again keep us in your prayers.

Anyways, here’s some quotes from the booklet from a new series, How Do I Love Church Members With Different Politics? by Jonathan Leeman and Andy Naselli published by Crossway. If you like these quotes, please get the book by clicking here.

“Love those who differ with you by respecting them, not disdaining them. Don’t assume that anyone who is stricter than you is legalistic or that anyone who is freer than you is licentious. When you are convinced that a certain political strategy is just, you may be tempted to treat it as a matter of first importance, but that would be a grave mistake because it would imply that those who disagree with you on that issue cannot be Christians.”

In the few days, the Tagalog version of Coronavirus and Christ written by John Piper will be release for free distribution. The members of the translation team are all excited to share this resource for the Filipino church. Kindly continue to pray for us as we start doing the audiobook version.

Anyways, here’s some quotes from the book, Conspiracy Theory by Doug Van Dorn published by Waters of Creation Publishing. If you like these quotes, please download the book by clicking here.

“The ultimate conspiracy of men is to try to somehow overturn the Father’s rule through the Lord Jesus Christ.”

“We learn that often times, especially when a conspiracy theory seems to put oneself at the center of harm’s way, it is often caused not by someone else, but by oneself. We learn that it is easy to become entangled in an increasingly dark and sinister world of collusion and sedition where everyone is out to get
you. We learn that our minds start to more easily listen to anything that will reinforce our already delusional beliefs. In short, we learn about some of the true dangers that can be associated
with conspiracy theories.”
