Grace in Growth, Fortitude in Failure

For the final installment in our series on a blameless reputation, I want to leave you with the two most valuable tools in your toolkit: scripture and prayer. Discover how these graces shape your heart and mind to build an above-reproach life.

#ChurchLife If you are averse to evangelism, here is some help. Speaking of which, missionaries cannot send themselves.

#FamilyLife Yesterday’s hero, John Gill, speaks on masculinity, while today’s hero, Jonathan Leeman, speaks on the limits of a husband’s authority.

#WorkLife Let’s talk about two of the biggest stressors of office work: inbox overload and asking for a raise.

Desires of Your Heart

The regenerated heart, accompanied by the transformed mind, desires what God desires. The Psalmist tells us to find our delight in the Lord. When we delight in Him, our desires will be for His will and His pleasure. And when His will and pleasure are also ours, God will grant us the desires of our hearts.

I’d love to hear from you. Just hit reply to let me know what you thought of this week’s newsletter, share link ideas for future issues, or just say hello!

Until next time.

For the Kingdom,
Jacob Abshire
