No Little People (Kindle Edition) (Crossway, 2003)

One of my favorite figures in Christian history is Francis Schaeffer. He wrote a book for people (and churches) that might feel small and unimportant.

Here’s the summary from Amazon:

Most Christians take an honest look at themselves and conclude that their limited talents, energy, and knowledge mean that they don’t amount to much. Francis A. Schaeffer says that the biblical emphasis is quite different. With God there are no little people!

This book contains sixteen sermons that explore the weakness and significance of humanity in relationship to the infinite and personal God. Each was preached by Schaeffer at L’Abri Fellowship in Switzerland to the community that gathered there to work, learn, and worship together. The focus of this collection is the lasting truth of the Bible, the faithfulness of God, the sufficiency of the work of Christ, and the reality of God’s Spirit in history. The sermons represent a variety of styles-some are topical, some expound Old Testament passages, and still others delve into New Testament texts. No Little People includes theological sermons and messages that focus specifically on daily life and Christian practice. Each sermon is a single unit, and all are valuable for family devotions or other group study and worship. Readers will be encouraged by the value that God places on each person made in His image.

Remember What God Has Said (2 Peter 3:1-7) [Podcast]

The Lighthouse: Warnings from Second Peter to an Endangered Church - Week 9

Why hasn’t Jesus returned yet? Is He ever coming back?

These are the questions asked by seekers and the accusations leveled by scoffers. To answer the question, we must look back to the past, not to the future.

When we evaluate the promises God made in His Word, we discover that He has kept every one. There is no reason to doubt Him with regard to the return of Christ.

In this ninth message from the series “The Lighthouse: Warnings from Second Peter to an Endangered Church,” Dr. David Rhoades shows how we can always trust God’s promises.
