A hymn by Augustus Toplady.
Welcome to another edition of “Links I Like,” a weekly roundup of news, stories, and other randomness that’s impacted me in the last week. I hope you find these as encouraging and enlightening as I did. Enjoy!
As with most stories, we are continually pursuant of the happy ending. We long for idealized conclusions to our favorite tales and wish there’d be a similar euphoric ending in our own life. This is why the standard fairy tale coda remains “happily ever after.” We want that. We want all the wrongs to be made right. We crave for the day when our fractured lives will be remade.
I usually chuckle when preachers begin their sermons with the sentiment that their selected text is their “favorite” in the whole Bible. I chuckle because not only do I do the same thing but I also know that this is usually just a quick way to introduce the text without really introducing it. But I have to say that when it comes to the Book of Romans, it really is my favorite.
Welcome to another collection of links that have impacted me this past week. Hope you find them enlightening and encouraging.
Among the things that perturb me about modern Christianity is our residual clinging to a sort of “Christian-karma.” You’ve probably read this frustration from me before, but with some recent events in my own life, I feel as though Christians still just don’t get it. We want so much for our deeds and actions to matter that we’ve actually trivialized grace instead of personalized it.
Another week has come and gone, but this morning we get to sit back, drink some coffee, and enjoy some fantastic stories from across the web. I pray these are as impactful on you as they were me!
Welcome to another collection of links that have impacted me this past week. Hope you find them as beneficial as I did.
I was privileged to be able to have Dan Price join my show as a guest recently. Dan’s an ardent grace-addict, like myself, and I so appreciate his ministry through the Christ Hold Fast organization. I’ve been able to meet him a few times but it was an honor to have him on the show, and just talk about Jesus and His grace.
I did something a bit different on Episode 13 of “Ministry Minded,” something I hope was beneficial for you. I recited lengthy passage from one of my favorite books of all time, Horatius Bonar’s The Story of Grace.
