Growing in Grace- Links 7/19

From the blog the week: Biblical Evidence for the Deity of Christ.

Living in the Bodies We Have and Not the Ones We Don’t

“I worshipped the form I couldn’t have. I became a slave to the body I wanted, counting calories, straightening my hair, trying every new diet with a hashtag and eliminating every food group one at a time.”

Today I Hate Foster Care

“I know. It’s a mess. But I can’t stay away. I don’t know what else to do. Here’s the thing– if you look at foster care and you see the problems, then you’ve got to be part of the solution. We can’t just opt out.”

A Place At the Table

“My Gong Gong joined a movement of ‘Freedom Swimmers’ who made their escape from China by swimming into Hong Kong. The route was dangerous and often fatal but for the persecuted, Hong Kong was a promise of freedom, food and a future. My Gong Gong dived into freedom with two friends but along the way, one was eaten by a shark and another shot dead by Chinese authorities. Weary and starving, he arrived on the shores of freedom as the lone survivor.”

At Home Discipleship

“My ideal of discipleship involved weekly meetings, formal Bible studies, answers to hard questions, and in-depth counseling. But this wasn’t what God provided at the time. Rather, God provided me with something much less intentional, but no less formative—a family who showed us hospitality.”

A Church of Adonijah’s

“Are we willing to displease for the sake of life? Will we be more concerned about gaining our brother or pleasing our brother?”
