Resources collected from my personal study, suggested for your personal study.
Every week I bring you a list of articles, podcasts, and sermons that I found helpful for my own edification. My hope is that you also will find these useful in your personal growth in the Christ.
It is good to regularly check your motivations for the ministry(s) you lead or support. We are prone to wander if we don’t check in regularly.
This quote is a great example of what you will find in this article: “Rather than being hell, such Christ-enabled labor makes visible a bit of the divine glory that is normally seen only in heaven. Instead of being futile and fleeting, in Christ’s hands, everyone’s daily job actually produces everlasting results.”
This older article from Tim Challies takes a look at the role of hobbies in our lives, and why they can be done for the glory of God. I think it is a subject that should be discussed more often, and practiced with regularity.
Often the perception and reality of missions or church in another part of the world are two different things. I have often been confused by different accounts of Christianity in China. I found this article helpful.
This week I wanted to highlight another podcast that is a regular part of my week. Unbelievable is a debate podcast where Christians and Non-Christians engage in health debate. I love hearing both sides of each debate. It is a great way to learn about other cultures and worldviews. I highly recommend it!
