One Minute Lessons (Lesson 22)

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 

(2 Corinthians 5:21)

Lesson:

I am completely righteous in Jesus Christ whether Satan likes it or not. Not just righteous but the very righteousness of God! Not merely just an exchange of his righteousness for my sinfulness but completely transformed.

One Minute Lesson (Lesson 21)

Job responds to Zophar :
Will you speak wickedly on God’s behalf? Will you speak deceitfully for him?  
Will you show him partiality? Will you argue the case for God?  
Would it turn out well if he examined you? Could you deceive him as you might deceive a mortal?  
He would surely call you to account if you secretly showed partiality.  
(Job 13:7-10 NIV)
Lesson:

A poor defence of God is a sin.

One Minute Lesson (Lesson 20)

In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. (Job 12:10 )

Lesson:

God is the ultimate life support!

Theology of Star Trek

Editor's note: A very insightful and detailed assessment of theological implications of Star Trek. The article is reproduced below - 'Strange New World: The Humanist Philosophy of Star Trek by Robert M. Bowman, Jr. (Christian Research Journal, Fall 1991).
On Thursday, September 8, 1966, at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, "Star Trek" made its first appearance on television. It was not a particularly auspicious beginning. The episode, "The Man Trap," was a fairly routine monster story. Critics panned the show. After only a few weeks, NBC was threatening to cancel the series.[1]

Engaging people

A great way to be significantly more productive is to start anything you're about to do with one question: What does a wildly successful outcome for this meeting, project, conversation -- whatever it might be -- look like? If you ask that question up front you co-create success: people knows what you're shooting for and actively work towards making it happen.
From a recent article The Best Way to Start Everything Important. The thrust of the observation is that to truly engage other people, we must always start with that one question: What does a wildly successful outcome for this meeting, this project, this sales call, etc. look like?
