Weekend Resource Roundup 12/17/16

Here are a few of the better resources that have been floating around in cyberspace the past few days:

What I’ve Learned from Being Isolated and Allergic to Everything – Sometimes God surprises us by withholding healing, only to give us something much better.

3 Marks of Righteous Anger –  If you need help distinguishing between righteous and sinful anger, this might be useful.

There’s No Such Thing As Chance – “…the Providence of God, as taught in Scripture, is opposed to fortune and fortuitous causes.” John Calvin

Even If He Doesn’t – “Our position as His creation cannot be that He should do as we demand. It cannot be that He is only good if He gives us what we want. It cannot be that His love is spelled out by how satisfied I am with His answers to my prayers. Yet, it is possible to have great hope and security in His ability to rescue us while also having great faith that even if He doesn’t, we can trust Him and He is good.”

Joseph Did You Know? – Mary often gets a lot of press, and rightfully so, during Christmastime, but I really appreciated these reflections on Joseph, and I think you will too.

Weekend Resource Roundup 12/3/16

Here are a few of the better resources I’ve seen floating around cyberspace the past few days:

Husband, Learn Your Wives.  A good word for husbands. I for one have much room for growth here. Hope this pushes other men as well…

Ingratitude, Ethics, and Porn.  “It could be that much of your spiritual striving is taking place in an unhealthy atmosphere of ingratitude and entitlement…Being thankful is not abstract, pie-in-the-sky spirituality, it is the daily battle to see the world correctly in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

When am I Ready to Become a Christian.  A good resource to share with someone considering Christ.

Does God Promise To Feed And Clothe Christians?   Jesus tells us that God will give us everything we need, but how are we to think about Christians who even now are starving in other parts of the world?

I pray one or more of these resources will be helpful to you as you seek Christ.

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Demer
