How to Find Significant Prepositional Phrases in Johannine Literature

preposition john

I was recently reading 1 John in which I came to the phrase in the world in 1 John 2:15. From my research, I realized John frequently uses the Greek word kosmos usually translated world. During my study I asked a few questions such as:

  • Where else in John’s writings does he use kosmos?
  • What other prepositional phrases does John use with kosmos such as in the world, from the world, into the world, etc?

Such detailed questions are actually very easy to answer with the Guide, Bible Word Study, which is available in Logos 7.

Why Healthy Volunteer Programs Thrive on Delegation


My wife and I have been leading teams of Young Life leaders for the last several years. This year, she’s pregnant with twins. It’s becoming increasingly apparent that she can’t have the same expectations for herself as a volunteer team leader. As a result, we’ve had a lot of conversations about delegation.

If you’re a perfectionist (like my wife), delegation can feel like a personal failure. Let me assure you, it’s not.

Delegation is an important part of a healthy ministry and a key ingredient of discipleship. Delegating doesn’t mean you’re an incompetent leader or have a bad work ethic. It shows you care about what’s best for your ministry.
