Glory, Story and Culture; Living Well For Jesus in this World

Christian Focus have produced a series of short books for young people in partnership with Reformed Youth Ministries. These books are called student guides, which is confusing for those of us from the UK as a student is normally in University. But, we won’t hold it against them. These short books also have different focuses, some are on culture, others on Christian Life and some are on doctrine. Each book is designed to inform and equip young people to stand firm in their faith. The series is a helpful one, here are three newer additions…

Mobile notifications and choosing to annoy people

If you have a smart phone, you probably use it for pretty much everything. Texts, social media, emails, notes, pictures, music, fitness tracking and so on, the list is massive. The average time a person spends on their phone is staggering. I am no different. Over the years I haven’t been the best example of how to manage my screen time, but I am making changes.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Christmas is just around the corner. I know, I know, it is still October. However, in the blink of an eye we’ll be buying a Christmas tree and preparing to gather with people to sing some carols and celebrate the birth of Jesus. But it’s easy to get caught up in the presents, the food, the fun and to forget about the meaning for Christmas. So, here are a few resources that can help.

Does God Really Want All People To Be Saved?

There are some verses that are often thrown around in theological debates, 1 Timothy 2:4 is one of them. Let’s add in a few of the preceding verses to give us a bit of context. 1 Timothy 2:1-4 says “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
