Growing in Grace- Links 1/17

From the blog this week: The Necessity of the Atonement

Following Jesus When It’s Difficult

“If it’s just about how many people raise their hands, or come forward at the close of the service, if it’s just about stats at the end of the outreach event, or camp, or rally—then sure, tell people that Jesus will solve all your problems and give you a life full of happiness, over-flowing wealth, and divinely-blessed health.

But that is plainly and simply not true. It’s a lie.”

Women’s Roles and The Great Commission

“When women are encouraged to think deeply about who God is, study the Word of God thoroughly, and proclaim boldly the WHOLE council of God, ‘women’s ministry’ will look a lot less like a ‘Pink Bible Study’ and much more like the New Testament.”

When Suffering Makes Prayer Hard

“Why pray when God is sovereign and has decreed the world’s turning? Why pray when God has already written the manuscript? Why pray when God doesn’t change his mind? I don’t fully understand why. But because God loves me, he has commanded me to speak to him. God cares to hear my feeble words. God works when I pray, and sometimes the majority of that work is on my own faithless heart.”

The Puritans: Cartographers for Christ

“It’s not always easy to mine the riches of Christ. But hunting such treasures proves much easier when we have the right tools and guides to help us find what we’re looking for. Every treasure needs a map. And the Puritans have proved to be expert cartographers in this regard, pointing the way for us to find the glorious treasures awaiting us in Christ.”

James Williams

Trying to live this life to the glory of God and help others in the process. Only by His grace!
