Theology/Christianity:

  • Your church needs you to sing — an article by Nick Aufenkamp.
  • Pastoring is so much more than preaching. I argue, frequently, that the most important thing a pastor does each week is to preach the Word of God. That is true. However, it is not the only thing pastors should be doing. This article from Tim Challies reminds ministers of that fact. 
  • John Owen writes on the subject of “conversion.”
  • Sinclair Ferguson teaches us “how to read the Bible.” Highly recommended.

Theology/Christianity:

I often tell our church children—kindergartners through college students—that they think they are going to live forever, but, I faithfully add, “You are not!” In fact, I say, you are going to die, and you may even suffer physically before you die. You certainly will suffer emotionally. We all suffer in some way at some time in our lives. We may suffer physical hardship, deprivation of physical goods, and/or emotional distress, and this sometimes because of our faith. Our Lord said: “In the world you have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Tribulation includes suffering.

Technology

  • For those of you who are searching for the best task list, there are many options available. The Microsoft version has just received an update. In case you are wondering, I am using Todoist. Google tasks also received an update. Next week I will be writing a review of Todoist. 
  • I have been experimenting with “mind-mapping” and Lifehacker has given a list of the best tools in this area for 2019. 
  • Charging our devices is a way of life. This cable will charge your iPhone from 0-80 percent in under an hour. Read more here.
  • Honey – I have been using this browser extension for quite some time. It will save you money when you make purchases on the internet by scanning for discount codes that you probably do not know exits. It will convert your savings into “honey gold” that you can redeem for gift cards to popular stores, including Walmart and Amazon. You should use it. I now have enough honey gold to get over $50 in gift cards at Amazon. PRICE: Free. Risk: None. Benefit: You save money wherever you shop online. It is silly not to try it. 
  • Phone battle: The Samsung Galaxy S10+ vs. the OnePlus 7T Pro.

Theology/Christianity:

  • This article from The Gospel Coalition offers the last written word from C.S.Lewis. 
  • This article, advanced by Aimee Byrd, one of the hosts of the Mortification of Spin podcast, is creating some (legitimate) questions. Why use a known liberal feminist to advance an argument that disagrees with the Mark Jones review of the book Beyond Authority and Submission by Rachel Green Miller? Please note that Byrd never qualifies her use of the article. 
  • Spiritual apathy in the church is a hunger problem — An article by Jon Payne at the Gospel Reformation Network website. 
  • The Aquila Report notes: Two PCA presbyteries have requested that Missouri presbytery investigate Greg Johnson regarding his “side-B’ views on the topic of homosexuality.
