My Favourite Christian Living Blogs

Posted on

 

Continued from yesterday:

These are, without a doubt, the blogs that have most helped and challenged me to become a deeper person. I’m in awe of the men and women who contribute to these blogs and thankful to God for their insights and passion for growing people in the Christian faith.

Remember that on any given webpage you will probably find this symbol somewhere. It is an RSS (Really Simple Script) link that will give you the proper address to copy into your chosen blog-reader program.  It’s the easiest way to follow a website you are interested in.

Christian Living Blogs

Truth For Life – “Led by Alistair Begg and overseen by an independent, volunteer board of trustees, Truth For Life is a Bible-teaching ministry seeking to faithfully proclaim the Word of God.”

Christianity Today – “Creating Christian content that changes the people who change the world.”

Tim Challies – [He is, in my opinion, the most helpful Reformed Christian blogger on the web.] “If the blog has a primary focus, it may be best summarized as ‘commentary on the contemporary church and its interaction with the culture around us.'”

The Gospel Coalition – “TGC’s blog features a community of voices who promote gospel-centered ministry for the next generation. We discuss the Bible, theology, church history, books, culture, and more, so join in the conversation as we seek to glorify God in what we do and say.”

DesiringGod – Mostly resources from pastor and author John Piper, but also many other authors.

TheResurgence – “Millions of Christians around the world have come to the Resurgence for training. Our motto is ‘Get trained,’ so our whole mission is to help you on the mission God has given you.”

Ligonier Ministries – “The teaching fellowship of RC Sproul…. Since the beginning, our primary service to the church was to bridge the gap between Sunday school and seminary. Our commitment over the decades has never changed: faithfully present the unvarnished truth of Scripture to help people grow in their knowledge of God and His holiness.”

 

Discernment

Posted on

Discernment When my daughter Eowyn was very little, she took it upon herself to simplift the alphabet.  She’s replaced all the C’s, G’s, and K’s with the letter D.  It was cute, (and if it caught on, would have made spelling a lot easier) but it made her difficult to understand at times.

“Daddy, dan I have some dum or dandy in de dar?”

That one’s easy, but I remember the time when she wanted me to “dade a pidder.”   She was very insistent that I “dade a pidder” right away!  “DADDY, DADE A PIDDER!”  It took about 5 minutes of my wife and I playing 20 Questions / Charades until we figured out that she wanted me to “take her picture.”

As amazingly smart as my little girl is, and as good as she was at getting her point across most of the time when she was very small, I really had to listen extra hard to discern what she’s trying to say.

Which brings me to today’s topic: Discernment.  Figuring out what is right, wrong, good, bad, wise, foolish, helpful, distracting, kind, unkind, unimportant, important or urgent.   There are so many competing voices and choices around us that to find what is right and good takes work, focus and often, help from others.  I came across some great links about discernment that will hopefully be of help to you if you are trying to figure something out.
