Tim Challies on blogging, Brian Croft on sermon length, Julian Freeman on social media and sin, and et cetera.
1. ‘The Code’ in the Christian Blogosphere (Tim Challies) – Challies blogs his interview with his friend on the topic of blogging.
2. How long should my sermons be when I preach? (Brian Croft) – Croft blogs on the length of sermons. He gives helpful principles.
3. Social Media and Temptations to Sin (Julian Freeman) – Freeman blogs on the temptations the come with social media. He quotes from Scripture, and I find it helpful.
4. Facebook guidelines for pastors and others (Steve Cornell) – Cornell blogs on do’s and dont’s on Facebook and Twitter. He also gives a word of wisdom on Facebook photos.
5. Be a Radically God-Centered Pastor (John Piper) – Piper speaks for ASPIRE Southern Baptist Pastors’ Conference. He preaches on the first petition (hallowed be Your Name) of the Lord’s prayer. The message truly shows the classic Piper, passionate for God’s glory, passionate for the hallowing of His Name. Here are some quotes:
God is passionate about hallowing the name of God (9:30)
The purpose of the universe is for the hallowing of God’s name. His kingdom comes for that. His will is done for that. Humans have bread-sustained life for that. Sins are forgiven for that. Temptation is escaped for that. (20:02)
And so in the gospel, more clearly than anywhere else in the universe, God’s name was hallowed. (30:12)
