the Christ house: Luke 24

 

MoSt Church‘s congregational Bible reading project for 2013, The Christ House, fixes our attention on Christ Jesus as we encounter him in the New Testament. The plan is slow and steady, simple and focused: read one chapter a day and memorize one “Christ verse” on which to meditate from each book of the NT.

Today’s reading is Luke 24 and the Christ verse for Luke’s Gospel is Luke 2.11: “Your savior is born today in David’s city. He is Christ the Lord.”

Facebook: Wash Your Facebook Page

“Facebook gives you an unfiltered platform to say whatever you want. That sort of freedom opens you up to posting things you might want to forget later. That’s not even mentioning the bizarre things your friends might post. Wiping those from your Facebook page takes plenty of time and effort. Facewash can do the work for you, though. It combs your Facebook page for questionable posts and status updates and then deletes them with one click.”

“I didn’t deserve to win it. I did what I had to do. He was the rightful winner. He created a gap that I couldn’t have closed if he hadn’t made a mistake. As soon as I saw he was stopping, I knew I wasn’t going to pass him.”

“… you have too much stuff going on at one time. … the longer you have been a church, the harder it is to take it back to square one.”
