B003D0TAM8.01._SX490_SCLZZZZZZZ_V190274968_I appreciate Tim Challies’ call to the church to persevere in prayer. It is directed to pastors but it is an encouragement all believers need to hear. If we really believe that the almighty, loving God of the universe hears and responds to our words, we will be driven to pray. So what is it that we don’t believe?

Ann Voskamp posts Scot McKnight’s important observation of, and encouragement to, the American church. I link to this not because I believe Bowman is off track here but rather as a reminder of why we do what we do at Bowman. Here is a quote:

Instead of asking the Bible to talk to us about what we’d like to hear — what we need is to be led to the Bible to hear what God has said.

Finally, “John Calvin: A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine, Doxology” is free for Kindle. It has been a few years since I read this book, but as I remember, it is worth reading. You have to understand that I think that John Calvin is one of God’s greatest gifts to the church since The Apostle Paul.

    “It’s proof that God really does use broken, messed up, and fallible lives anyways”. – Ann Voskamp I think I like those words.
