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…
“Biblical lament opens the door to face doubt, lament, grief, and loss, not in the absence of God, but before the face of God and in the presence of God with the help of His Word, His Spirit, and His people.”
“Any discussion on the church would be severely lacking without a close look at the presence and ministry of the Holy Spirit. Without him, the church would never have been founded. Godly leaders would never have been called, believers added, gifts distributed, service rendered, or growth realized.”
“Not every idea is worthy of an entire article. Hence, this one contain a long list of brief, random (and unsolicited) pieces of advice for living the Christian life, most of which I’ve gleaned from others over the course of the past 45 years. I hope there is something here that benefits you.”
“In describing trans experience – and I think the context suggests they are particularly referring to transitioning – as ‘a sacred journey of becoming whole’, the authors of the letter are taking the secular approach with its veneer of spirituality. They are suggesting that the way we find out who we are and how we can best live is to first look inside ourselves.”
“Disney is different. The insertion of an ideological perspective related to gender and sexuality affects the product. The creatives on video are forthright: they want to use the Disney name and its cultural cachet to push views of sexuality into entertainment for children.”
It’s always encouraging to hear someone’s story!
An article that will encourage and point you to Jesus and how He sustains His people.
“How can I know God’s will? That generic question takes shape in a host of intimidating choices God’s people face. What if we could just flip a coin, draw straws, or roll dice and do whatever the object indicated? Didn’t people in the Bible do something like that sometimes?”
As someone who always preaches from a manuscript, I approve this message haha!
