Preparing for Worship: December 29, 2013
The sermon text for this week is from Luke 17:11-19, which you can read here.
This is the last Sunday of 2013. Isn’t that hard to believe? Each year seems to go by so quickly, and the biblical notion that “life is a vapor” comes into focus at every years end. In terms of your bible intake, how would you rate yourself in 2013? While I’m not trying to elicit a canned or pitiful response, it’s a fair question that we should consider often—”examine yourselves,” as Paul says. I would encourage you to consider making “daily bible intake” your goal in 2014. There are a number resources to help motivate you to do this with regularity and persistence. Justin Taylor has provided a lot of these at this link.
Let it be your goal in 2014 to “bleed bibline,” as Spurgeon would say.
