Last Post before the Break!

I haven’t posted for a while and probably won’t be, especially with the end of the term coming up. There’s been a lot of things to finish and it’s been pretty busy doing them! The only thing I’m planning to write in the next couple weeks is my work term report ūüėČ My laptop is…

Quick Review of a Hillsong Worship Devotional

Everybody loves Hillsong Worship. As Christians of the young adult age group in this century, we’ve all sung their songs in endless praise sets and listened to them for countless hours on our own time. There’s no question of musical talent. But how meaningful are these songs? What are they being built on, how closely are they interpreting the…

To the churches of Colossae … pt 3.

Part one is here and part two is here. Part 3: Colossians 3:1-17 I wasn’t going to write a third part¬†but it felt a bit weird leaving my Colossians¬†study in the middle of the letter. This post won’t be too long either, and I’ll just be summarizing thoughts for my own reference. We’ve almost seen…

To the churches of Colossae … pt 2.

A continuation of part 1 here. Part 2: Colossians 2:16-23 This is a continuation from the previous passage of shifting from the hope of the gospel, I got sick halfway through writing this and I’m just pulling through to finish it. Last time, he talked about false outlets of knowledge, but this time he talks…

To the churches of Colossae …

My busy week is finally over! Definitely enjoyed sleeping at 10:20 pm last night ūüėČ With that said, I’ve been looking for a short letter to study that relates to those studying for finals. I want to be able to finish the main body of the letter in 2/3 sessions, so it has to be…

Trying to be creative …

The taillights flickered as I walked by in the parking lot. Unconcerned. Waiting for my car to beep¬†as I pressed the remote, until¬†I stopped to¬†realize this was, in fact, my car. Dead battery.¬†Not enough left to light the dashboard. So¬†I ask myself … Why now God, why now? Frustration casts a¬†deceptively large shadow. There was…

Biblical Boastin’ – 2 Cor 12

Part one and two if you’re interested. In chapter 10, Paul defends both the intentions of his ministry, and the¬†difference in his communication styles; in chapter 11, Paul follows up with a commentary on his life where he presents himself as a fool to build his point. We end up with a couple criteria on…

Biblical Boastin’ – 2 Cor 11

You can read part one¬†here! The last chapter left out¬†some details so¬†it¬†was hard to see what was¬†going on in the church of Corinth, if there was conflict, or what Paul was¬†trying to accomplish¬†in boasting. This chapter will¬†give us some more insight; we just need to find it in this mess. Again, I tried to pick…

Shoulder Check

Cover photo is like .. opposite of my life right now ūüė• Ended up going to Toronto this weekend, so I didn’t have much free time the most part. This week is pretty hectic as well, seeing as all our fellowship¬†activities are coming to an end and we’re having a¬†Banquet on Friday! Won’t have much…

Biblical Boastin’ – 2 Cor 10

This will be a multi-part series because after I finished writing this, I realized the next 2 Chapters discuss boasting as well. (Sorry if you don’t like Paul as much as I do LOL) One characteristic of Paul throughout¬†the letters is his confidence! He says things with such boldness and makes very specific statements (2…

Context First – Luke 11:28

Update: Looks like they removed the verse! Here’s the link to their blog. YouVersion – The Bible App sent everyone this ad, they sent it to you too if you’re still subscribed to email notifications! The Alexa looks like¬†a voice controlled speaker and there’s also an app that can hook up straight to your bible….

Context First – Matthew 5:33-37

During the Men’s small group today we came across the topic of promises, and someone said that we should never make promises because we have no way of making sure they take place. Lying is bad, but did Jesus¬†actually¬†tell us to never make promises? As always, context first! … This is said during Jesus’ Sermon…
