First Church Reading List

Reading is a good habit. With that good habit, we can also develop a bad habit of reading book after book in one or two genres that we are particularly fond of. In trying to combat that trap, it's good to look for additional sources of reading inspiration. My wife and I attend a church where the pastor is definitely a bibliophile. He routinely draws sermon inspiration from a variety of literature. It also seems that visiting ministers will often mention books that inspired them. So, I began to jot down books and author that I heard at church. So, I dub this, the first installment of the "First Church Reading List".

The Place of Transformation

Luke 9:28-36
Prayer doesn't need to be boring! Jesus and his disciples went up into mountain to pray and the usual was happening, the disciples fell asleep and Jesus prayed. This night was different however, as Jesus had other company join him. Moses and Elijah dropped by to discuss his decease in Jerusalem.
An amazing transformation happened as the masters clothes became dazzling white and his countenance glowed as it's appearance was altered. Suddenly the disciples awoke to gaze upon this spectacular display of radiant glory. I WONDER HOW IT COMPARED TO THE NIGHT OF HIS BIRTH? Read more...

Take Heed To Yourself

Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. Hebrews 2:1
Introduction:
What God has given through his word is important. Every word was given as a help to prepare us for eternity. Therefore we should pay attention to our own person in the matter of salvation. While the worldly person today is looking out for No.1 they don’t have God and eternity in mind, so it is our duty to be sure we live right by God’s purpose.
