Commanded to Judge

“And I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment that you may approve things that are excellent; that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God” Phil. 1:9-11.

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon continue to discuss the controversial topic of judging. Philippians 1:9-11 describes why judgment is important in our daily lives and how it brings glory to God. When we understand the right definition of judgment and practice judgment according to scripture, we will know better why we are commanded to judge.

Key Words to the Christian Life

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green explores Key Words to the Christian Life by Warren Wiersbe.

 

Never underestimate the power of words. A judge speaks, and a man is condemned or set free. A physician speaks, and a person has surgery, or he is sent home from the hospital. A government official speaks, and millions of dollars are spent or withheld.

In our own personal lives, we know the power of words – words that can bless us and words that can cut us and hurt us. It is very important for us as Christians to know the meaning of biblical words. We need to understand these words and how they apply to our lives.

Words like justification, sanctification, propitiation, imputation, and mediation – these words make up the technical vocabulary of the Christian life and are very important!

So, come be a part as we delve into a world of words with Warren Wiersbe in Key Words to the Christian Life. Where he will help us establish a solid vocabulary for guiding our daily Christian life.

To Judge or Not to Judge

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure of mete, it shall be measured to you again” Matthew 7:1-2.

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss the scriptural definition of judgment. Matthew 7:1-2 tells us not to judge; however, Philippians 1:9 says, “And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; that you may approve things that are excellent; that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ.” Join in this challenging conversation on the topic of judgment and the examination of the question…are we to judge or not to judge?

 

If I Perish, I Perish

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green digs into “If I Perish, I Perish by Major Ian Thomas to find insights into the meaning of Christian commitment.
Do you recall a moment, a day, or a season when you came to the realization that you knew you would follow the Lord no matter what? I’m not talking about the moment you were saved, but a time later-after you’d experience perhaps some of the valleys of the shadows, after weaning from the milk of the word to meat of it, after realizing that you could do nothing apart from our Savior. A time when you truly understood that no matter the storms, no matter the trials or tribulations, you would not turn away from the Lord. Because being “in Christ” had become as essential to you as the air you breathe.

If you can not recall such a moment, then perhaps today’s showcased book will help you because it provides insights into the true meaning of Christian commitment.

I had the distinct honor of sitting under the teaching of Major Ian Thomas on several occasions during my high school and early college years. He was an engaging speaker who could make even a teenager sit up and listen as he presented solid truth with both profound insight and humor. Deep thoughts translated into practical, relatable lessons of life.

And it is with heartfelt appreciation for Maj. Thomas and his influence on my life that I ask you to come and be a part as we feature, If I Perish, I Perish-Insights into the meaning of Christian Commitment.
