Growing in Grace- Links 4/5

From the blog this week: 7 Evidences of a Spirit-Led Life

Starting Conversations With Cultural Christians

“Cultural Christians (like many Americans) believe they are good people. Those who perceive they are good people might need Jesus to take the wheel on a bad day, but not necessarily to forgive the sins they don’t think they have actually committed.”

Modesty and the “The Legging Problem”

“Modesty demonstrates to others that we have more important things to offer than good looks and sex appeal. The point of 1 Timothy 2:9 and 1 Peter 3:3-4 is not an absolute prohibition against trying to look nice. The prohibition is against trying so very hard to look good in all the ways that are so relatively unimportant.”

A Snapshot of the Global Church

“The Christian church has experienced a larger geographical redistribution in the last fifty years than in any comparable period in its history, with the exception of the very earliest years of church history. . . .”

What the Lord’s Day Is

“The longer I live—the longer I live out this life as a Christian—the more I see my desperate need of the Lord’s Day. Though it once seemed like the kind of day I could take or leave, I’ve since come to rely on it and to see God’s goodness in giving it. It’s a day we ignore at our peril. As I stood to worship on Sunday, I found myself considering just some of what the Lord’s Day is…”

Truth and Growing in Grace

“The postmodern world in which we live is marked by its extreme denial of any authoritative truth. As believers, we must stand squarely upon the Word of God as we witness the rejection of truth, whether in the world or in the church. We must pursue the truth in our lives through a life of commitment to Jesus Christ.”
