Challenging believers in Jesus to think and act based on Bible truth.

Monday Challenge 8.26.13

Last Monday of August! It’s time for school to start in Akron.  But before Wednesday rolls around, it’s time for Monday Challenge.  What does that mean? It means a bunch of articles that are designed to make you think.  Take your time, read through, use the questions provided to help you challenge the way you think about the various viewpoints.

The Christian Faith

1. I generally like to preach through books, chapters, etc.  Here’s why.  What a great article about helping Christians go past just music in worship.

Question: Do you study through entire books or do you just look for faith snippets? Are you a “Christianette”?

2. Wow. This makes me sick.  What are relationships coming to?

Question: How can you look for opportunities to teach others the value of others and the value of great, committed relationships?

3. Great truth: God is already satisfied, so quit trying to do it.

Question: What subtle ways do we try to take the place of Jesus and earn God’s favor?

4. We won’t back down. At least, I hope not.  I know I’m not planning on it!

Question: What makes believers most cowardly?

5. Starting school this week? Here is some great advice. If you’re not starting school, pass this on to those who are!

Question: If you are an adult, can you relate to young people at all and the pressures they face at school? How could you bridge that gap?

      I changed the link. The actual article was a bit longer. I made a quick change to the description too. I could see how that could have been confusing.
