"The Gospel Comes with a House Key: Practicing Radically Ordinary Hospitality in Our Post-Christian World" by Rosaria Butterfield

“Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same “radical, ordinary hospitality” to bring the gospel to our lost friends and neighbors. Such hospitality sees our homes as not our own, but as God’s tools for the furtherance of his kingdom as we welcome those who look, think, believe, and act differently from us into our everyday, sometimes messy lives―helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.”

Not Ashamed: Paul's Letter to the Romans - The Life of Love

“In this lesson, Dr. Godfrey–a teacher for Ligonier Ministries– traces Paul’s thought in Romans 12–13 and draws practical implications for our lives in the present moment before the return of Christ.”

R.C. Sproul: Behave Like a Christian (Part 1)

“Paul's writing in Romans 12 reminds us of Christ's sermon on the mount. Dr. Sproul continues his discussion on the use of gifts in the ministry and that we should avoid elevating gifts and that our love should be sincere. A discussion of evil is begun and the specific evil of abortion is shown.”

R.C. Sproul: Behave Like a Christian (Part 2)

“Dr. Sproul follows up on the concept of evil by explaining the difference between sin and evil. We are warned against a life driven by "fleshly" ambition, but in contrast to have a life imitating Christ. The difference between natural and moral evil is investigated. This lesson is concluded with an emphasis on vengeance and revenge and that it should be by God.”
