FIVE REASONS TO READ A CHRISTIAN NEWSPAPER

 

Evangelicals Now is a monthly Christian newspaper which reports news from across the UK and around the world concerning Bible believing Christians of all backgrounds.

 

Why should Christians read such a newspaper? Here are 5 good reasons:

 

1. INSIGHT

We need to read a Christian newspaper because the secular media rarely report on the great strides the gospel is making worldwide, or if they do they usually manage to misreport what is going on.

 

2. UNITY

God's word tells us that all true Christians are one in Christ Jesus. By reading news of other believers nationally and globally we give concrete expression to that oneness.

 

3. BALANCE

 As we find out about Christians and churches at home and abroad and their successes for the gospel or the challenges they face, we are put in touch with an up to date and overall picture of what God himself is doing in our day. This makes us more balanced as Christians.

 

4. SOLIDARITY

As we read news of other brothers and sisters we have the opportunity to stand with them in prayer and so become co-workers with God in this generation.

 

5.  DISCIPLESHIP

As we take interest by reading about other Christians we are delivered from parochialism, self-centredness and party spirit and show God that we really do care about his kingdom and not just our little bit of it. This is a mark of a true disciple.
