Here are a few tidbits and resources I have found in my wanderings around the web.
I hope you find them fun or helpful or both.
What to Do When Faith Dies (Desiring God)“If I don’t bear fruit, the problem is that I’m not abiding. Which means the solution isn’t to try to bear fruit…”
A Kind of Cold You Don’t Play With (Desiring God) “May the Lord give us skin to feel and ears to hear.”
Christians Can’t Be Too Busy to Love Their Neighbors (Christianity Today) “…our lives seem to be getting busier than ever and our packed schedules– and misplaced priorities– can keep us from taking the time to get to know one another.”
@MarkBatterson If your dream isn’t IMPOSSIBLE TO YOU it might be INSULTING TO GOD.
@ScottyWardSmith The beauty of Jesus exposes the ugly of our idols. We don’t get rid of idols to see Jesus; seeing Jesus topples our idols
@Gospel_Project Our God is jealous. He longs for us to experience the joy and happiness we were meant to have.
A Couple of Resources
One Forever: The Transforming Power of Being In Christ by Rory Shiner A great book that underscores the importance of our union with Jesus Christ… OPBC’s theme for 2014. (a few copies available at the church in the Book Nook)
The Insanity of Obedience: Walking with Jesus in Tough Places by Nik Ripken This book dares you—and prepares you—to cross the street and the oceans with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
