Circumstances sometimes limit pastors and other church leaders from ministering to people face-to-face. When this happens, we have to be even more diligent to ensure that none of God’s flock are neglected. Otherwise, the “out-of-sight, out-of-mind” syndrome will likely lead to their spiritual decline, which in turn will make them less likely to return to […]
The New Testament repeatedly indicates that anyone who does not love the church does not belong to the church, that is, the body of Christ. In other words, anyone who does not love the church that Jesus loves is not a follower of Christ. One of the best known verses in this regard is 1 […]
Every once in awhile I read a book and think, “I wish I had written this book.” Watchfulness: Recovering a Lost Spiritual Discipline is one of those books. The funny thing is, I could have written it. But it’s a very good thing I didn’t, because it wouldn’t have been nearly as thorough or helpful […]

I was asked this question by my friends at “For the Church,” which is a ministry of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas […]
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is the best seminary in the world. I honestly believe that. Teaching here has been one of the greatest privileges of my life. But after more than a dozen years at Southern, I have enough experience to know that it isn’t perfect. So here are 10 things I don’t like […]
Tim Ferriss seems like a very likable guy; the kind of guy who, if you met him and didn’t know he was famous, you’d still want to get to know. He is very personable in his podcasts. I enjoy listening to him. Who Is Tim Ferriss? I have profited from several things in Tim’s books, most notably […]
