“We have a revelation of who Jesus is and what He has said in His Word,” says David Platt, author and pastor of the Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Alabama. “We have no right to customize or personalize Him. Instead, His Word changes us. When we believe His Word, it transforms everything about us. We see that Jesus is the only way to live, and we’ve got to make that known.”—Jessi Strong
“Some Christians may think that if you want to hear the gospel, you should go to church. No—the church should go out with the gospel for these people,” says Dr. Tharwat Wahba, professor and chair of missions at Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo. “This is our moment. There is hunger, and society is struggling. There are many wounds in our society, and the solution is Jesus.”—Jessi Strong with Rebecca Van Noord
The final two chapters of Ephesians include practical, detailed instructions for several different groups: wives, husbands, children, parents, servants and masters. We often study these instructions to learn how to best fill these roles. But what if you don’t fall into any of these categories? How can you apply Paul’s instructions to your life?—Miles Custis
I’ve reached Ezekiel again in my Bible reading plan, and I’ve been worn down by all the judgment and destruction. But now that I’ve reached the temple vision in Ezekiel 40, I sense the mood is changing. We’re shifting gears away from judgment and toward consolation. As I read, I realize I’ve never heard a sermon from this part of the Bible.—Doug Mangum
Is This Where God Wants Me?
Search as we might, we won’t find a Bible passage that tells us whether our current job is the right one. However, there are helpful texts, such as the two stories of men meeting Jesus for the first time found in Luke 18–19. Their responses illustrate what following Jesus actually requires.—Ryan J. Pemberton
“The Bible is a framework for all of life’s issues. Although certain issues are not discussed in the Bible, that doesn’t mean the Bible is silent,” says June Hunt, biblical counselor and founder of Hope for the Heart. “. . . It’s important to mine the Scriptures for principles related to real-life problems and develop steps to put those principles to work in our lives every day.”—Lynnea Fraser
