The LORD says,
“I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.”
—Psalm 91:14, NLT

It’s a big world out there when it comes to Christian apps.
Devotionals, Bible readers, church management software—there are so many Christian apps out there! So the Disciplr team and I plotted the first “World Map of Christian Apps”: a visual guide to the landscape of digital tools created for the Church.
This map pulls together Christian apps of all kinds: from native iOS and Android, Web-based, desktop software, and even a PowerPoint plugin. It’s not a comprehensive list, but it should give you an idea of what’s out there. And of course, remember that this is an observation, not a recommendation.
And by the way: you can download a free copy of this map at the bottom of this page.
Please visit Disciplr.com to read more and to get a closer look at each of the Christian apps on the map. You can also click on the image below and choose “save image as” to copy it to your computer.
A Bible Study by Jack Kelly
In this study, I’d like to take another look at Revelation 20-22 specifically for the purpose of clarifying the sequence of events that are contained therein. This won’t be a verse by verse study, but will focus on what I believe to be the way John wanted us to understand what he was telling us.
Let me begin by stating once again my belief that the book of Revelation is laid out chronologically for the most part. But there are places where John followed a particular scene to its conclusion and then back tracked to pick up the story where he left off. A good example of this concerns the account of the two witnesses. Their entire 1260 day ministry was compressed into 11 verses between the 6th and 7th trumpet judgments (Rev. 11:3-13) and yet it will actually span most of the Great Tribulation.
Many of us were taught that Rev. 20 gives us a brief look at the Millennium before describing eternity in Rev. 21 and the first part of Rev. 22. From the questions I get, it appears that lots of people still believe that’s what these three chapters are saying. But that can’t be correct and here’s why.
Reblogged from As Seen Through the Eyes of Faith.
I so appreciate my bloggy friends and what they write to inspire and bless us. A couple of weeks ago I shared a great post—What must I do to be saved?—from Raymond Gary Candy at As Seen Through the Eyes of Faith. Today’s post, Baptisms – The First Steps with Christ, is a great followup.
Once again Raymond, thank you for blessing us with your writing!
Someone might say, “I’ve just accepted Jesus Christ and been born again. What do I do next?”
If you have recently asked Christ into your heart and confessed Him as Lord of your life, then you are no doubt feeling a great joy and thankfulness to the Lord for washing away all of your sins, saving your soul, and giving you a new life in Christ.
I’m sure that you are feeling a great love for God because of His mercy and grace that He has bestowed upon you.
“We love him, because he first loved us.” (1John 4:19)
You have been, as Jesus said, “born again”, and as such you are like a new born infant in the eyes of God.
And just like a new born baby, you have been washed (in the cleansing blood of Christ), swaddled (in the fresh linen of the righteousness of God in Christ), and all God asks of you for now is to be nurtured by Him (through prayer and reading His word), grow, and do as He asks.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” (John 14:23)
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15)
