It’s Not You, It’s Me

It’s been a while, so let’s get caught up …

We haven’t spoken since May. Seems like a lifetime ago. My health crashed. Seminary picked up. And most recently, my church ordained me as a pastor. A lot has happened, and I haven’t sat in front of a camera since. So, in the foreseeable future, I will try to throw some helpful resources your way—things that I have been digesting and appreciating that I think you will enjoy—and, as the Lord permits, I’ll return to my video series on Godly character.

Here are some notable readings …

#CurrentEvents Scott Aniol helps us think about the vicious attacks on Israel by diving into the debate surrounding the modern nation of Israel and its place in end-times prophecies. Consider why Christians should – or shouldn’t – rally behind this Middle Eastern nation-state beyond just prophetic expectations.

#GodlyMan Douglas Wilson looks into the difficulty men face distinguishing between guilt and responsibility, especially in today’s egalitarian society that often blames men. Wilson argues that while some movements, like the “manosphere,” have emerged in response to this blame, it’s vital to understand that being guilty and being responsible are not always synonymous.

#ChristianLife The word “help” should be a part of your vocabulary, particularly when directed to God. Learn from King David. God takes great joy in being our help. And he wills suffering for the children he loves, by John Piper.#ForFun Reagan Rose doesn’t disappoint. He helps others redeem their productivity, even down to their coffee. Now that you have your coffee in check, Peter Mead will point out some of your Bible Study mistakes.
