Christmas Green

Just now the earth recalls His stunning visitation. Now
the earth and scattered habitants attend to what is possible: that He
of a morning entered this, our meagered circumstance, and so
relit the fuse igniting life in them, igniting life in all the dim
surround. And look, the earth adopts a kindly áffect. Look,
we almost see our long estrangement from it overcome.
The air is scented with the prayer of pines, the earth is softened
for our brief embrace, the fuse continues bearing to all elements
a curative despite the grave, and here within our winter this,
the rising pulse, bears still the promise of our quickening."

“Pray over the Scriptures. Christians just setting out on the path of prayer sometimes pray for everything they can think of, glance at their watches, and discover they have been at it for all of three or four minutes. This experience sometimes generates feelings of defeat, discouragement, even despair. A great way to begin to overcome this problem is to pray through various biblical passages.”
― Donald S. Whitney, Praying the Bible

Today's Year One and Inklings lecture on Being Transformed by Scripture was led by Dan Osborn, our first City Director. We had a full house! We were so happy this new class was able to sit under Dan's teaching. As I shared with our Fellows today, Dan helped build this community at CSLI and we are blessed that he is still involved and sharing his passion for the Word of God!

We also were able to finally get a class picture of Fellows and mentors. What a great class! We are so thankful and excited for the future of CSLI NEOH!


“It is an evil time when the world allows injustice to occur and keeps silent.”
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Meditating on the Word.


"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." 2 Timothy 3:16-17


Great CSLI podcast from our Atlanta branch.


"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night." Psalm 1:1-2

“No Spiritual Discipline is more important than the intake of God’s Word. Nothing can substitute for it. There simply is no healthy Christian life apart from a diet of the milk and meat of Scripture. The reasons for this are obvious. In the Bible God tells us about Himself, and especially about Jesus Christ, the incarnation of God. The Bible unfolds the Law of God to us and shows us how we’ve all broken it. There we learn how Christ died as a sinless, willing Substitute for breakers of God’s Law and how we must repent and believe in Him to be right with God. In the Bible we learn the ways and will of the Lord. We find in Scripture how God wants us to live, and what brings the most joy and satisfaction in life. None of this eternally essential information can be found anywhere else except the Bible. Therefore if we would know God and be godly, we must know the Word of God—intimately.”
― Donald S. Whitney, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life


“Why do I meditate? Because I am a Christian. Therefore, every day in which I do not pe*****te more deeply into the knowledge of God’s Word in Holy Scripture is a lost day for me. I can only move forward with certainty upon the firm ground of the Word of God. And, as a Christian, I learn to know the Holy Scripture in no other way than by hearing the Word preached and by prayerful meditation.”
― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Meditating on the Word


Update on earlier prayer request: They are safe! Answered prayer! Thank you all for praying CSLI family!! 🙌🏻


Prayer Request: One of our alumni is a missionary in the Middle East. He needs to relocate safely with his family (wife and 3 small children) to a safer location TONIGHT due to the war in Israel. Please join us in praying that all visas are expedited quickly today. Also that they are invisible to the enemy--covered by the Holy Spirit-- and protected by heavenly warriors as they travel. Ask the Lord to give them peace and wisdom as they assimilate into a new location. May they continue to be a light in a very dark place. In Jesus name, Amen.


Please pray for the CSLI Study Group that is currently in Israel. Pray for their safety and for open doors to share the love of Jesus Christ. As always, pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.”
John 14:15-17 (ESV)
