God’s Gifts & Technology?

[guestpost]This is a guest-post from my friend Nate Curry.[/guestpost]

This post is merely something to get the 21st century believer thinking about or re-thinking his or her beliefs on the topic of God’s Spiritual gifts. Being the technology guru that I am I see a major correlation between technology and the way God communicates to us.

7 Verses for Laying Aside Distractions and Keeping the Vision of Christ

The treasures of Egypt did not hold him back, nor the pleasures of sin. Moses set his course. He refused to be called a prince of Egypt. Instead he chose affliction with the people of God.

If ever there was a case of laying aside a wealth of distractions, it was Moses.

Why did Moses chose God’s vision?

What You’re Forgetting When Your Faith Is Weak

Sometimes it’s hard to pray. Sometimes it feels like you’re repeating words, not talking to a person. From this we may even wonder if our faith is weak.

When that happens, what are we forgetting? What is missing?

Don’t Grow Weary

When the disciples urged Jesus to eat something, he said, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about. My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work” (John 4:32-34). 

There are days I feel this way. I love my work and I lose myself in it, even skipping a meal without noticing. When you get into the flow, you truly can say, “I have other food.” I’ve experienced that.

But there are other days too; the kind when the vision isn’t there.

One of the top questions Christians ask is how to deal with the tedium of life. Does this sounds like you?

Christianity, Humanism, and Civilization

It was just a trailer for a video game. But to me it was something more. The music came from one of my favorite pieces ever. The visuals and narration portrayed the striving of humanity to better itself.

The striking last lines of the video:

“There’s no end to our imagination and no limit to civilization.”

It’s a compelling vision for humanity. It’s also incomplete. The story of mankind needs a hero, and that hero can only be God himself.
