Little is Much | Pat Loftin

pat loftinJust think of the importance of a little word of encouragement! Mark Twain said, ”I can live for a month on a compliment.” Why not speak a nice word to your preacher— give a small gift to a friend— visit briefly with a shut-in or give a good hug to an elderly person (and remember I am old, too).

Jacob told his sons to bring the king of Egypt “a little honey” (Genesis 43:11). Proverbs 30:24-28 speaks of “little animals” that teach powerful lessons— Luke 19 tells of a “little man’” who climbed up in a tree to see Jesus. Just remember a lot of people and a lot of things and a lot of churches that appear to be small or insignificant are very valuable, important and big in the sight of God.

There is a wonderful song entitled, “Little Is Much If God Is In It.” One verse states:

”Little is much if God is in it;
Labor not for wealth or fame.
There is a crown and you can win it;
If you go in Jesus Name.”

Top Five Books on the Five Solas: Introduction | Keith Mathison

from Ligonier Ministries

Over the next few weeks, we are going to spend some time retracing our path in order to look briefly at some foundational doctrines—the five solas of the Reformation (sola Scriptura, sola fide, sola gratia, solus Christus, soli Deo gloria). When the medieval church lost her way, the rediscovery of these fundamental doctrines helped the church regain her footing. In the past, I have written a series of blogs recommending the best commentaries on each book of the Bible. My goal in this series of blog posts is to do the same with each of the five solas. If we are going to regain our footing, it will require effort. Christians will have to become biblically and theologically literate once again. This will take time, but it will take less time if we have some idea where to start. My goal is to suggest a place to start on these particular doctrines.
