The Watchman Awards

Be sure to tune in this coming week and in the weeks to follow. I have a lot of material that I hope to cover in the near future. I will be posting an amazing testimony of a soldier in Iraq tomorrow, so don't miss it! I promise that it will bless you.

Also, stay tuned for the winner of this week's 'Free Book Giveaway!' On Thursday, we will be changing the rules and creating even more ways to win! If you like free stuff, you won't want to miss it.

This week's Watchman Awards is a blending of different types of posts. You will find below a comical approach to Christian apologetics, a sweet poem about straying away from God, and a insightful essay on modern Missionary methods from a missionary. I was extremely impressed with each of the blog posts that I list below and I highly recommend checking them out.

Anyways, here are this week’s awards. These three were easy winners. They are excellent articles and stories and I promise that you will be blessed if you take the time to read them. Have fun and God bless you all.

1. Apologetics For Curmudgeons by David Kjos at The Thirsty Theologian

"There once was a scholar from Esser
Whose knowledge grew lesser and lesser
It at once grew so small
He knew nothing a all
And now he’s a college professor!"

2. A Poem by Kristina at Kristina's Keepsakes

"I got the thoughts for this poem after I found out that a very, very close friend of mine that is 17 years old moved out of his parents house. We have known him and his family since he was just 4 or 5. It was really shocking and heart breaking to hear about it. I am hearing a lot about teens that are moving out of their parents home because they want to do their own thing. It is just really sad."

3. The Goal of Missions by Terry McGovern at Missionary Insights

"We need to be Biblically driven instead of numbers driven in our efforts to accomplish the great commission. Please do not think that I do not desire to see multitudes saved. I truly dream and day dream of entire villages coming to the Lord with only one true church in the village. However, we must stay focused on how the Lord has directed us and leave the results to him."

  • Hi Nicholas...thanks for commenting on my blog again! I love the flag in your header...don't you just love the American flag? Have a blessed Sunday!

  • I do absolutely love the old flag. Old glory is the reason that I do what I do. In the mornings, when I'm at first formation at work and 'To The Colors' begins to play, and the flag begins to slide up the pole towards the sky, the command echoes out 'Present...Arms!' We all snap a crisp salute. I love it!
