I’ll be taking a short break this week, so there will be no posts for Friday. But I am going to introduce another series. Short Answers. I’ll take a portion of an older post to answer specific questions. The goal is for Short Answers to be typically between 400 – 600 words, not counting how I end all of my posts, with the typical ending and links. My first one will appear this Thursday and it will cover what a genuine prayer life looks like.
If you saw the post Where To Learn About Christian Apologetics? then you’ll be familiar with a slight change. Community Spotlight isn’t new, but I thought sharing multiple resources on particular topics would be helpful. These posts will appear occasionally, instead of the Recommended series, which focuses on one resource.
One other addition is I will be starting to share Christian Apologetic focused posts on every other Sunday. Of course, schedules could change due to holidays or breaks, but the plan is to have Christian Apologetic videos recommended on every other Sunday. Occasionally, I may write up a post, but overall the posts will tend to be similar to my recommended series. The first Christian Apologetics recommended post will on August 28th, and it will cover how to refute modern myths of Christ.
I also added some new graphics I can use when breaking up ideas in a post. Really excited for my autumn themed ones!
Okay, that’s it. 😀
Have a great week!

The Gospel Message: With the Good News means there’s bad news. We all are sinners and condemned. We all deserve the just punishment of God’s wrath. Christianity is unlike any other religion because we cannot earn our way into Heaven. God saw the weakness of man and his utter depravity. Yet, He showed us grace. Jesus, God, One Person of the Trinity, became God in the flesh, the God-Man. He was always perfect and sinless. And His humanity was perfected on the cross, living the full sinless life. He became our atonement sacrifice. Dying in our place, taking on the wrath of God upon Himself. He died on the cross, and He was resurrected because death could not hold Him. Jesus is the answer. We, as guilty sinners, need His blood to pay off our debt of sin. For all who put their faith in Him – meaning eyes are opened to the Gospel, we see ourselves as a sinner, we see the need for Christ, we desire our Savior, and we see the ugliness of our sin. Putting our faith in Jesus, we seek HIs forgiveness and repent from our sins, we turn away from our old way of life. We, through the work of the Holy Spirit, continue to become convicted of sin daily. Our eyes will never be the same again. We see things in a different light, and the truth of Christ affects how we live and serve Him. Christ tells us to count the cost. Salvation is a serious topic, it is not to be taken lightly. For a breakdown of this powerful message, understanding how Christ could be God and Man, why God required sacrifices, and more -please see: Why Did A Loving God Kill His Son? (Does God Hate?)

Scripture To Meditate On – (ESV) Matthew 4:10, “Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.’”
