Meditations for Muslims: Preaching in the Name of Jesus

After the two thousand received Christ, Peter and John spent the night in jail.

The next day the rulers, elders and teachers of the law met in Jerusalem. Annas the high priest was there, and so were Caiaphas, John, Alexander and the other men of the high priest's family. They had Peter and John brought before them and began to question them: "By what power or what name did you do this?” Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: "Rulers and elders of the people! If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed, then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. He is “ 'the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone. 'Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:5-12 (NIV)

Physical healing and spiritual salvation are the result of preaching in the name of Jesus.

An Update on My Ministry

This is an update from my son Douglas on my health and the plans for continuing my literature publishing ministry with Community Christian Ministries. If you would like to talk to me more about this or just for fellowship, you can reach me at (208) 882-4383 or jimwilson27@frontier.com.

Dear saints,

My name is Douglas Wilson, and I am writing you with an update about my father’s health, and about our plans for the future of his ministry. I serve on CCM’s executive committee, and we recently made some important decisions in this regard, and so I wanted to take this opportunity to pass this information on to you.

As most of you know, Jim Wilson is now on hospice care. He is getting progressively weaker, but is still able to live at home, where he continues to counsel and minister to others. We don’t know when he will go to be with the Lord—it could be any time, and it could be a while yet. My wife and I have been living with him the last nine months, and are happy to report that he is a …

Same Page Summer: A Bible Reading Invitation

There are many Christians who read the Scriptures sporadically. In other words, they read their Bibles “now and then” and “here and there.” They gravitate to their favorite chapters. If asked the last time they had read the New Testament all the way through, they might not be sure they ever had. Consequently, there is an appalling ignorance of God’s Word in the body of Christ, and a consequent lack of obedience. Listening to the best Bible teachers in the world will not make up for not reading the Bible yourself.

Are you hesitant to try reading through the New Testament or the Bible? Is it difficult to understand? Do you get stuck on the genealogies? When you don’t understand a verse, do you stay with it, trying to understand it, and then you don’t progress? Is it just too long?

Here are a few suggestions to overcome these complaints.

First, get a Bible, or download an audio Bible. If the King James is too hard for you to understand, go with something simpler like the NIV or the ESV.

Roots By the River & the Same Page Summer

For those of you doing the Same Page Summer Bible reading plan, I will be, Lord willing, posting thoughts on the subject of the day’s reading. This will not happen every day, but I will endeavor to do it often. Many of the posts will be things I have written in the past, but I hope they will be of some benefit to you.

I will endeavor to keep this up for the year-long plan once it starts in September.

If you are not doing the Bible reading plan but would like to join or want to know more, you can find that information at christkirk.com/biblechallenge.
