This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading some few months ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Colossians 1:4.  Here is my translation:

ELABORATION 4 ἀκούσαντες τὴν πίστιν ὑμῶν ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ καὶ τὴν ἀγάπην ἣν
Hearing your faith in Christ Jesus and the love which

ἔχετε
you have

BULLET εἰς πάντας τοὺς ἁγίους”
for all the saints

Here are some observations:

I have been caught up so busy with my church ministry but I also need to be finishing up my courses to teach theology next month in an undisclosed country that is security sensitive.  Of course during the weeks I’m overseas there will be guest posts on here given my access to the internet will be limited.

Pray for my preparation.  This include not only studying for and actually making my lecture outlines but also making power point presentations.  I also need to get it done sooner too to have it sent out to be translated into the native language.  Due to language issues the text books I would like to use is limited so I also need to read one of the books for assigned reading sometime as well.

Pray for my strength and wisdom to finish everything.  Thank you so much for those who are praying!

R.C. Sproul,. The Barber Who Wanted To Pray.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, September 16th 2011.  30 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is another of RC Sproul’s children book.  There has been a few of his books that I and my kids have enjoyed from him which led me to purchase this book as well.  In this work RC Sproul writes a book that touches on prayer.  I love how in this book as well as others RC Sproul writes on spiritual truths using a story within a story in which the first level of the story are kids hearing adults telling a story with a spiritual lesson that is relevant for them and their situation.  That helps the kids think more reflectively of how the main story applies to the children’s lives.
