ESV Bible Reading Podcasts

I made mention of a couple of podcasts in my sermon this past weekend and wanted to provide the links to those here. The first is called "ESV: Everyday in the Word" which follows the M'Cheyne Bible Reading Plan (the same as our Living Life devotional Bible reading plan). It goes through four Bible passages a day and at the end of the year, you would have read through the whole Old Testament once and the whole New Testament and book of Psalms twice.

The second podcast I mentioned is called "ESV: You've Got the Time". This divides the whole New Testament into 40 segments, with each segment approximately 30 minutes long. Through it, you can go through the whole New Testament in just 40 days! Give it a try. Both of these podcasts provide a great tool for Bible intake during devotions or daily commutes. Enjoy!

How Sermons Work

I found a free e-book recently on preaching called "How Sermons Work". It's by David P. Murray who is Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology and Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. It provides a good concise overview of some of the basics of sermon prep that the young preacher might find very useful. I'm always on the look out for new preaching resources and wanted to pass this on to you as well.

A Great Opportunity to Bless Japan with the Gospel

My friend and brother Michael Oh will be preaching for both campuses of OEM next Sunday (March 21). He is president and founder of Christ Bible Seminary in Nagoya, Japan (and was also a speaker for a Desiring God Conference last year).  Several of our OEM members had the privilege of serving with him on a short-term mission trip last year and see first hand the evangelism and discipleship that is happening in that area.

Michael and his team have an awesome opportunity to bring the gospel to the heart of Nagoya through their seminary and church by purchasing a building in downtown Nagoya. We will be taking a love offering this Sunday at our services to help support this great opportunity in furthering the Gospel in Japan.

Please prayerfully come prepared this weekend to give generously to this Kingdom cause. If you are unable to attend our services this weekend, you can give here. Thank you in advance - for God loves a cheerful giver.
