Donation Campaign for MINTS International Seminary

I seldom post donation campaigns to my blog, but a friend of mine and longtime Logos Bible Software user, Robert Peters, asked me to share the donation campaign link to a seminary program called MINTS International Seminary.

John 14:1–15:7—Preparation. Christ prepares the disciples for the future. •Preparing for problems: the great comfort passage of the first six verses of John 14. •Preparing by proof: Christ emphasizes His identity. •Preparing for prayer: some great prayer promises. •Preparing by precept: “keep my commandments.” •Preparing by promise: a promise of coming of the Holy Spirit Who is called the Comforter. •Preparing by peace: Christ gives the best peace which will see one through every situation in life. •Preparing by practice: abide in the vine (“abide” or “abideth” is found seven times here). –Butler’s Daily Bible Reading Bonus Devotional by Adrian Rogers BIBLE MEDITATION: “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:8 DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: A man named Solomon Peas died.

Colossians 3:1–4:6—Conduct. This passage especially deals with the conduct of the saints. •Regulations: a number of regulations are given to guide the saints—they concern such things as affections, anger, speech, humility, forgiveness, giving attention to the Word and prayer. •Relationships: three relationships are addressed (Ephesians noted the same three relationships). They are husband/wife relationship (submission by wife, love by husband); parent /children relationship (children are to obey the parents in all things, and fathers are not to provoke their children to anger), and master / servants relationship (servants are to serve faithfully; masters are to treat the servants properly). –Butler’s Daily Bible Reading
