PFP Encouraging Christianity

Focusing the Sower’s Spotlight on PFP

PFP Ezine

In our current spotlight we are featuring PFP or Preacher’s Favorite Passage. Since this month we are featuring Men In Christ’s Service we wanted to give you a little more information about what PFP has to offer by highlighting some of their monthly e-zine.

In the current edition of PFP guest writer Andrew Lamica, from the Chase Park congregation in Huntsville, Alabama encourages Christians to be imitators of Christ. He uses the passage from 1 Corinthians 11:1 to remind us that this command is often overlooked in study. Too often we fail to truly meditate upon the word and rather gloss over what can become too familiar.

When we look at the religious world around us, many of whom claim Christianity yet walk not after Christ, we should be reminded of this passage and the many others like it written by Paul to imitate Christ.

Brother Lamica does a wonderful job of reminding us that not only is it ok to be a carbon copy Christian, it is a commandment, to pattern ourselves after the life of Christ.  I encourage you to click on over to the PFP e-zine to read the entire article.

Also in the current edition of PFP you will find:

In the Editor’s Addition: Lee Snow discusses the reality of depression and how it can play a major role in a person’s life. He offers a first hand account along with scriptural guidance for how to overcome. He reminds us that with God we can find help for every situation and that He already knows how it will work out.

In the section, Q&A with Billy Hayes, Brother Hayes answers two questions. Both are related to offices mentioned in the Bible. The first, the office of an elder and the second the office of a prophet.

Josh Clevenger in his article Ethical Ekklesia he talks about the modern culture of tolerance and what it means to us as Christians. He explains the worlds view on what tolerance means, and also that we as Christians should love all men to their greatest good – heaven.
The Preacher’s Favorite Passage (the PFP) is a amalgamation of articles and helpful tools for the Christian to use throughout his walk with Christ. We release a monthly e-zine with a main article from a guest writer about his favorite passage outlining the passage of Scripture and teaching about it. In addition to the main article, each e-zine issue has other articles and things from our writers Tony Clay, Billy Hayes, Josh Clevenger, Lee Snow and Travis Byars. The PFP also hosts a blog which is updated several times a week with articles and links. ~Written by Lee Snow.
