From Prison to the Pulpit - This video testimony about God's amazing grace will touch you greatly. Another great post courtesy of the Gospel Coalition.

The Greatest Tragedy in the Church Today - "Evangelism is dying in many churches today. No, that’s not an overstatement. I am not speaking hyperbolically. Evangelism is dying. Look at the data. Measure almost any groups of churches today versus 30 years ago. You'll likely find only 1 person is being reached with the Gospel for every 40 to 60 church members." - Thom Rainer writes for about the state of Evangelism in the Church today.

Rest Works - Christianity Today reviews Rest Works by Matthew Sleeth, a book which explores the importance of keeping the fourth commandment: keeping the Sabbath day holy.

Social Media and the Church - Mark Spencer asks: "What happens if the Church doesn't embrace Social Media?"

The First Christian Service in Australia - Today (Sunday the 3rd of February) is the 225th anniversary of the first Christian Service in Australia. Craig Schwarze provides the facts about the very first service on Australian soil.

Thought for the day...

"The church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints."
— Timothy Keller
