HACM Weekly Roundup [8/30/13]

Articles:

  • Make the Bible your Native Tongue: “With tweets, blog posts, predigested podcasts, and fingertip access each week to downloads of some of the most engaging Bible teachers in the world, it’s tempting to develop an on-going input of the Bible at the hands of others that overshadows, or even eclipses, input from personal time spent pouring over it on our own.”
  • Lessons from the 2013 VMAs: “Youth culture is spiritually hungry. Augustine said that “our hearts are restless until they find their rest in Thee.” The VMAs were like a cultural ultra-sound that allow us to see just how restless the heart of youth culture really is….We need to realize just how counter-cultural the Gospel is and how counter to the Gospel our culture can be.”
  • Why College Ministry Needs the Local Church: “When college ministry is an integrated part of the church, real relationships have a chance to form in a much different way than if a student simply shows up to a church on Sunday but doesn’t know anyone.”

Quotes:

  • “A Christian is not a person who has made a new start in life, but a person who has received a new life to start with.” —John Blanchard
  • “The more you know about Christ, the less you will be satisfied with superficial views of him.” —C.H. Spurgeon
  • “Our call to war: to love the captive soul but to rage against the captor.” – Kristyn and Keith Getty, “O Church Arise”
