Saturday Snippets (September 26)

As well as reading a lot of books, I also read a ton of articles every week. Here are some of the articles that I’ve read recently and have found interesting, helpful, challenging and encouraging. I hope that they will be the same for you, my dear readers…

TGC Essays

This looks like it could be a really useful resource for folks. Plenty of articles on 12 major categories––the Bible, the Christian life, the church, creation, end times, God, the Holy Spirit, humanity, Jesus Christ, salvation, sin, and systems and methods of theology.

If God is sovereign, why bother praying?

A helpful article on one of the most common questions pastors and Christians get asked and have asked themselves at some point.

Caring For Yourself is also Caring For Others

“Being cared for is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign that you are a fallen, sinful human being who needs the body of a Christ to come alongside you and help you serve. That is a good place to be.”

The Hiddenness of God: Reading Esther Theologically

Russell Meek has written a helpful article exploring the book of Esther. In a book that doesn’t mention God at all, we certainly can learn a lot about Him from it.

Suicide and the Need for Hope

An interesting article that speaks about how a particular worldview can influence suicide rates. Pray for those who feel hopeless and remind them of the hope Christ brings.

The Writing Pastor:  An Essay on Spiritual Formation

A really interesting essay about the benefits of writing.

When should Christians disobey Government over Coronavirus restrictions? (video)

Helpful wisdom from John Stevens on a very relevant topic today. I’m saddened to see so many Christians and churches argue over this. I hope this short video will help.

On Sermon Outlines

“Every sermon should have a destination. It also needs a clear path to get there. A sermon outline charts the path for the sermon to reach its intended destination. Good sermons have effective outlines.”

What Happens When a Christian Dies?

“A Christian is a person who owns two homes. The home you are living in now is a temporary one, a “tent.” But you have another home that is more enduring, more substantial. The date for your moving to your new home has not yet been given, but it is already known to God.”

Nietzsche Was Right

This is Tim Keller’s book review of ‘Dominion: How the Christian Revolution Remade the World’ by Tom Holland. Enjoy and go read the book 🙂
