Jeff's Recent Updates

Jeff is on page 231 of 266 of Hard Sayings of Jesus: Started this a week ago. Very short chapters--just picking and choosing. Only gives one way of seeing each saying. Seems like he loooked a lot of them up from what others have said.

Who Shall Ascend the Mountain of the Lord? by L. Michael Morales
“Entering the house of God to dwell with God, beholding, glorifying and enjoying him eternally, I suggest, is the story of the Bible, the plot that makes sense of the various acts, persons and places of its pages, the deepest context for its doctrines.”
L. Michael Morales
Advice To Sufferers (Annotated) by John Bunyan
" Done with the book. Still repetitive, but the end was good. So, good beginning and ending for me. "

This is like a cross between How To Read the Bible for All Its Worth and Exegetical Fallacies by Carson. Very sound teaching on what the Bible is and how to understand it, along with mistakes to avoid.

He bungled the translations portion by calling t

“The Christian who is not diligently involved in a serious study of Scripture is simply inadequate as a disciple of Christ. To be an adequate Christian and competent in the things of God we must do more than attend “sharing sessions” and “bless me parties.” We cannot learn competency by osmosis. Biblically illiterate Christians are not only inadequate but unequipped. In fact, they are inadequate because they are not equipped.”

Matthew Henry
“If you take a book into your hands, be it 'God's book, or any other useful good book,' rely on God to make it profitable to you. Do not waste time reading unprofitable books. When you read, do so not out of vain curiosity but with love for God's kingdom, compassion for human beings, and the intent to turn what you learn into prayers and praises.”
Matthew Henry

“On feeling guilty about lack of 'productivity':
"In a time of infirmity, the illness IS one's work. Taking care of all the disciplines that our health problems require IS the other part of the small daily fidelity to which we are called, beside the faithfulness of being attentive to God. We can be well simply by our diligence in being who we are at the moment."
--Marva Dawn, Being Well When We're Ill pg 137”
Marva J. Dawn

“One of my biggest problems in dealing with the breakdown of my body is that I keep looking in the wrong direction. I look to the past and the capabilities I once had, instead of looking to the future and what I will someday become in the presence and by the grace of God. Perhaps that is the strongest temptation for you too. Our culture reinforces that mistake by its refusal to talk about heaven, as if it were an old-fashioned and outdated notion. We also intensify the problem by craving present health (as limited as it can be) more than we desire God.

A friend once said to me. "This is so hard getting old—there are so many things we can‘t do any more. I guess the Lord wants to teach us something." Indeed, our bodies will never be what they previously were, and we find that difficult because we miss our former activities. But God wants to teach us to hunger for Him, our greatest treasure. Instead of rejecting the notion of heaven, we genuinely ache in our deepest self to fill that concept with a larger landscape of the Joy of basking in God‘s presence.”
