Quietly Through 1st John (Week 3) :: The Test of Knowing Him (1 John 2:3-11)

Welcome back! It’s Tuesday and time for us to continue our journey quietly through 1st John. If you missed week one or week two, I highly encourage you to read those posts first. If you are ready for week three, let’s go. The Test of Knowing Him 3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in […]

3 Resources To Help You Read the Book of Mark {Quietly Through Thursday}

If you’ve been reading Quietly Through your Bible then you know our little community began the Gospel according to Mark today. Here are a few resources to help you read the Book of Mark.

Many of us make new year’s resolutions to be in the Bible more. Each year we are determined to do it. On January 1 we open our Bibles and start with a commitment to form a new habit that will last a lifetime. But then life happens and by the time February 1 rolls around (or we get to Leviticus, which ever is sooner) our determination has fizzled and we are discouraged with our lack of follow through. Does this sound familiar? Or is it just me? Anyway… We have two options when we realize we can’t […]

What Has He Given to You?

“‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.” Matthew 25:29 NKJV Did anyone attend IF:Gathering or an IF:Local this weekend? The conference ended with a plea for us to make just one disciple. The message was loud and clear: there is no denying that Jesus has called us and given us His authority to make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20). And then I come to this passage this morning: the one about the parable of the […]
