I love Josh Harris(‘s hair)!

I never noticed in my own reading how the big issue with the Corinthians was pride. 

I’ve since started reading Josh’s blogthrough my google reader.  His site is one of my most frequented sites now.  He has done a series on Jeremiah 29 recently.  Check out the three parts here, here, and here, as well as future posts on the topic.

It is good to read what someone like this has to teach on the scripture.  He isn’t starting with a topic and fitting scripture to hs lesson.  He is taking a passage and allowing it to speak for itself.  A sermon is so powerful when the speaker just teaches scripture and allows it to speak for itself.
