Micah 6:1–8 (Listen)


6:1   Hear what the LORD says:  Arise, plead your case before the mountains,    and let the hills hear your voice.  Hear, you mountains, the indictment of the LORD,    and you enduring foundations of the earth,  for the LORD has an indictment against his people,    and he will contend with Israel.

  “O my people, what have I done to you?    How have I wearied you? Answer me!  For I brought you up from the land of Egypt    and redeemed you from the house of slavery,  and I sent before you Moses,    Aaron, and Miriam.  O my people, remember what Balak king of Moab devised,    and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him,  and what happened from Shittim to Gilgal,    that you may know the righteous acts of the LORD.”


  “With what shall I come before the LORD,    and bow myself before God on high?  Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,    with calves a year old?  Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams,    with ten thousands of rivers of oil?  Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,    the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”  He has told you, O man, what is good;    and what does the LORD require of you  but to do justice, and to love kindness,    and to walk humbly with your God?

Discipleship Training
Gospel Transformation by World Harvest Mission
I heard a lot about Gospel Transformation through the grapevine but I finally got my hands on it a few weeks ago. It’s a 36 week inductive study focusing in on the gospel and our ongoing need for it no matter how long you’ve been a Christian. A few brothers of mine are going to start up soon. After flipping through the contents, it’s probably one of the best discipleship resources out there.
 
Sonship by World Harvest Mission
I haven’t really gotten a chance to go through this one yet, but it looks very promising. In addition, they have a one week Sonship Retreat as well as phone mentoring as well.
 
Gospel Centered Living
This is a shorter adaptation of Gospel Transformation. We went through this a few years ago and was very helpful in shaping our understanding of the gospel and our mission.
 
Matthias Media
I went to a conference by 9Marks and was introduced to ministry from Australia called Matthias Media. I was open to a whole new world! Well, not really. Back in my Boston days, there was a Korean couple from Australia who trained us in leading growth groups. Now I know they were trained by Matthias Media materials back in their university days. Anyway, their gospel resources are solid and they are constantly pumping out new tools and resources.

Gospel Presentations
John 3:16
Here’s Pastor Ken’s attempt to summarize the gospel using John 3:16
Two Ways to Live
A concise summary of the gospel that tells the whole story of God’s redemptive plan from beginning to end. There are tracts for adults and children and its translated in many languages including Chinese.
 
The Big Story
James Choung is coming out with a new book, True Story: A Christianity Worth Believing In. Instead of going through a tract, which would roll the eyes of many skeptics, James whips out a piece of scrap paper and starts drawing. He starts with human longings and how it points to creation and from there, tells the story of God’s rescue mission. I like the holistic element and how the gospel not only saves and transforms individuals, but also how the gospel transforms society and the world we live in.
 
How Can I Know God?
This isn’t a gospel tract or a tool, but a great article by Tim Keller called, How Can I Know God?
