Excerpts from the March–April 2013 Issue!
Tim Keller: Church in the City
“Jesus gave us two commandments: love God and love your neighbor,” says Tim Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church. “When I call people to repent and convert, I’m telling them to love God. When I call people to do good in the city, I’m telling them to love their neighbor.”
“People in the city have to see that you’re not just trying to increase your following. What we call evangelism—and what I think is the most important thing you can do—the city sees as just recruitment and accrual of power.” This can generate a lot of hostility. Keller says evangelism should do the opposite. “The gospel makes us unselfish. We show the gospel in the city through deeds of love and mercy. That makes people more willing to listen to your message, which is, ‘You’re sinners and you’re lost.’ The city needs to see us loving our neighbor.”—Jessi Strong
Sally Lloyd-Jones on Telling Stories
“Teach your children the Bible is not about them. It’s not mainly about them and what they should be doing. It’s about God and what He has done. We can tell the story and then let the story do its work. Don’t sum it up into a sentence or drill it down into a moral lesson—that will kill the story. Lessons come at you head on and leave you with your defenses up, but a story comes around the side and captures your heart.”
8 Ways to Pray: A Study of 8 Psalms
We often think of worship as joyful noises and hands lifted in praise. Expressions of grief, frustration and fear don’t fit the mold of worship—they’re often sorted out privately.
The Psalms challenge our modern constructs about emotions. They give voice to the joyful and desperate cries of an ancient people in a manner that many of us would hesitate to express today. The Psalms abandon façades for complete authenticity before God. —Miles Custis
