Need some Weekly Wisdom? Here are my favorite resources of the week.
VERSE OF THE WEEK
if we are faithless, he remains faithful—for he cannot deny himself [2 Tim. 2:13]
BOOK OF THE WEEK
One of the most widely read books of all time, this adventure reveals John Bunyan’s intense grasp of the Scriptures. Penned while in prison for refusing to compromise the gospel, The Pilgrim’s Progress is a guide for the journey from death to life. The times have changed, but the landmarks and adversaries are very much the same.
The Pilgrim’s Progress is a call to the high stakes of every Christian’s journey. Don’t pick it up expecting quaint amusement; it is a story of the undeniable truth, great cost, and overwhelming joy of the gospel.
PODCAST OF THE WEEK
This week on Preaching and Preachers, Dr. Danny Akin joins me in a discussion on the preaching of Adrian Rogers. Dr. Akin serves as Professor of Preaching and Theology, the Ed Young, Sr. Chair of Expository Preaching, as well as the President of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forrest, North Carolina.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“I want the presence of God Himself, or I don’t want anything at all to do with religion… I want all that God has or I don’t want any.” ―
SONG OF THE WEEK
Just found The New Respects and loving this group! Here is their video for “Trouble.”
POST OF THE WEEK
There is a simple, straightforward answer to the question posed in the title of this post: it depends.
Is social justice a gospel issue? That depends on what we mean by “social justice” and what we mean by “gospel issue.”
TIP OF THE WEEK
You Need Big Time for Big Projects
Oftentimes, I find myself trying to whittle away at a big project and frustration and defeat overwhelm me. If you have a big project, you need more than a few minutes a day. Carve out a good chunk of time to really identify all what you need to do and then find some time to get large sections of it done.
