Some posts I’ve enjoyed recently:
An interview with Nancy Guthrie on Suffering. We recently completed Nancy’s Hoping for Something Better in our ladies’ Bible study group so I was intrigued by this interview with Justin Taylor. Her story is compelling and her faith encouraging.
From master blogger Tim Challies: “Every Christian needs not only to own up to his sinful acts, but to admit that he is fundamentally a sinner who is deserving of God’s wrath. No one has properly apprehended God’s grace until he has understood his own sinfulness and knows that he fully deserves God’s just and holy punishment. The evangelical church of our day tends to be a wrathless church—a church that speaks often of God’s love and grace, but rarely of the deepest necessity of this love and grace.” in Real Guilt and Sinfulness
Also from Challies: “Once you’ve been exposed to doctrine you see the richness in it for your own soul and you truly are ruined for anything else. Just as a young child craves solid food, Christians will and must crave the meat of the Word.” in Ruined for Anything Else
Because I’m always interested in what people are reading (and correspondingly always eager for recommendations), here’s a list of books being read by the folks at Desiring God.
I can totally relate to this post from Wendy at Practical Theology for Women when she writes: “Malaise. A vague sense of uneasiness and discontent that colors my responses to everything. It’s not PMS. I can’t attach it to any particular negative circumstnace. I can’t lift it myself. I can’t tweak my appearance, cross off enough things from my To Do list, or eat, exercise, and sleep enough to lift it. I know as a Christian where I need to go to address it. Yet, even knowing the right answers, there remains a gulf between my reality and my ideals. ”
And, my dear friend in real life Cindi reflects on letting go.
What about you? Any posts you would recommend?
