Opportunities and challenges
Happy New Year! With this new year comes both opportunities and challenges. More importantly, comes our chance to receive exceeding great and precious promises through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord (2 Pet. 1: 2, 4).
To begin this year, WordBytes will launch a new series entitled The Clarion Word Classics.
The word “clarion” comes from the Latin word claru or ‘clear’. Used as an adjective, it means ‘loud and clear’. Our intent with this quarterly series is to make “loud and clear” what is ours in Christ and as children of God (Rom. 8:17).
Making a Fresh Start
Throughout 2023, we will share faith writings from key theologians who will strengthen and enrich our spiritual lives and faith walk. This includes such sage theologians and writers such as J.I. Packer, Oswald Chambers, and C.S. Lewis.
We will also introduce contemporary writers who express spiritual answers to the challenges of 21st century living. This includes such authors as Priscilla Shirer, Alistair Begg, John Piper, and black theologian, Bruce L. Fields.
To begin the Clarion Word Classics, we introduce F.B. Meyer (a favorite of mine). His devotion for the new year is entitled, “Making a Fresh Start.” Meyer infuses scripture throughout his writings. See if you can find them within the text.
