Expect Revival

Thinking like a Christian is what this blog is all about.

Try hard to think like a Christian no matter what comes your way.  To do that you will have to read the Bible and be honest about what it says.  The Bible isn’t really all that complicated.  Some religious leaders try to make it so.  That is just a power play.  But, if you read the Bible in your own language–the way your culture today uses that language–it really is plain and simple.

The Protestant Reformation in the 1500’s and all the evanglical revivals since have been about this very thing–getting the Bible into the hands of the people in their language.  Try reading the new English Standard Version and see what I mean. You might be revived again!  Refreshed by a strange stirring of your heart with truth you haven’t really seen before.  Order one at www.cvbbs.com for about a buck.

I’ll add some pictures soon when I can figure out how.  My grandchildren and collie dog are all fine,  and I am getting older each day.  The summer has now become too long.  We Floridians are waiting impatiently for a cool change in the air which should come any day now.

Keep reading your Bible and trying to think like a Christian.  Expect the Holy Spirit to sweep across your heart like a refreshing fall breeze.  Look for it.

“…you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you…” (Acts 1:8)

About Carol Brandt

I earned a B.A. in History from Florida State University and M.Ed in.Higher Education from Florida Atlantic University. I taught high school social studies before “retiring” to full-time homemaking and raising two daughters. Now I love being a grandmother to four boys and a girl. I have also raised five collies.

My husband, John, was an optometrist, who worked tirelessly for his profession through private practice and as a consultant, and served on the Board of Trustees of Illinois College of Optometry for twenty years.

Ernest Reisinger was my chief mentor in this warm-hearted application of Calvinism. He gave me many books! The Founders Journal and Founders Conferences, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Charles Spurgeon have been other sources of Reformed thinking as well as the other warm-hearted ones listed in my book, “Warm-hearted Calvinists.”
