Sunday, Reflections and a New Link
A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. We may think our tribute is paid in secret, in the dark recesses of our heart, but it will come out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping, we are becoming.
----Ralph Waldo Emerson
From his basics of Christianity series, Dr. David Jeremiah talks about the importance of baptism in one's walk with Christ.
Using the wonderful story in Acts 8 of the conversion to Christ of the Ethiopian eunuch by the disciple Phillip in the desert, depicted in the above image, Dr. Jeremiah describes how God brings the seeker and the saved together in an amazing encounter, culminating in baptism for the converted eunuch, who then continues on his long journey rejoicing.
I'm linking to a new source of Christian learning and inspiration today in the sidebar to the right. It's called One Year Bible Blog and is a daily program of Bible study with commentary that can take you through the entire Bible in twelve months. It's the best study I've found, with readings each day from the Old Testament, the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs.
Today the blog is at the halfway point for the year, and includes readings from 1 Chronicles 6, Acts 28, Psalm 6 and Proverbs 18. Take a look, if you're curious, or you have a deeper longing to study and know the Word of God in your life. The stories and commentary are truly life-changing and stunning!
