My Proposed Writing Projects: Would You Pray for Me?
Friends: As most of you know, I love to write. And I have a lot of writing projects that I need to, I want to, pursue. Would you consider praying for me that God would lead me in my writing? I want to maximize my energies and produce what would be beneficial to God’s people and a blessing to Him! Here are several manuscript ideas “in the works.” Feel free to leave a comment on which one interests you the most. Thanks!
Friends Don’t Let Friends . . . Die! This is a multi-part study of the story of Lazarus, a good friend of Jesus, who dies. And Jesus could have prevented that from happening. This study deals with the important topics of friendship, suffering, and sovereignty.
A Five-Minute Theology: Daily Devotionals in the Basics of Belief This may sound a bit strange, but a lot can be accomplished in 5 minutes a day. My concept is 300 five-minute devotionals on the ten areas of theology (thirty each on Christology, Hamartiology, Ecclesiology, etc.). So in less than a year one can get a pretty good grasp on the fundamentals of the Christian faith. I’ll also produce 5-minute videos along the same line.
Insight from a Blind Man (A Study of John 9) This miracle — the most detailed account of a healing in all of Scripture — provides many practical lessons for the believer.
With Friends Like These . . . Job’s Friends and Religious Foolishness I’ve studied the book of Job — and preached on it — for years. I’m fascinated, not so much by Job’s suffering, as by the friends’ spiritually mugging him for thirty chapters! There are many lessons in this study about friendship and how poor theology can bring more hurt than healing.
Finding Deep Joy in a Sad, Shallow World (A Study of the Epistle to the Philippians) We know that the prominent word in this letter is joy. But what is joy? And how does it differ from happiness? A study of the dozen or so uses of that term will greatly help us in being a people of joy.
The Forgotten Third: Developing a Biblical Relationship with God the Holy Spirit This project will probably be the first under contract. Christians either overemphasize or overlook the Third Member of the Trinity. If He is truly personal, He can be spoken to. If He is fully divine, He can and should be worshiped. Learning of His various ministries to believer and unbeliever is key to developing a relationship with Him, for we are to enjoy the “fellowship of the Spirit” (2 Cor. 13:14).
Would you consider praying for God’s leading in my life and in my writing? Thank you!

I will definitely pray for the Lord’s leading for you Larry. Maybe also pray about and consider an eleventh area of Theology, Israelology? As I understand it, 5/6 of the bible is on this topic. Where did, where does, and where will Israel fit into God’s plan? I fear it is an area so very misunderstood and leads to some very unfortunate mindsets, like ‘replacement theology’.
I love you my Brother, keep serving the Lord and may He continue to bless you and may He continue to bless others through you!

What a cool happenstance, Lew! I have on my calendar to email you! Thanks for your comment and your concern. I would have guessed that 5/6 of the Bible is on God’s glory. You might have read the following already, but I’d ask you to read it again: https://www.watchman.org/hr.pdf Blessings. Larry
