Each Friday, I’ll post links to 3–5 resources from around the web you may want to check out.
Union with Christ: An Unbreakable Fellowship
The doctrine of union with Christ is deep and wonderful and sustaining for a Christian. This short article gives an introduction to union with Christ.
The doctrine of union with Christ changed my life. It changed the way I conceive of my relationship with God. It changed the way I read the Bible. It changed the way I pray. It changed the way I pastor. It changed everything.
The Power of Encouragement
It’s worth considering: in any given day, we often have the most impact on the people we encourage.
It’s interesting that near the end of Moses’s life, God tells Moses not once but twice, to encourage Joshua. God knew the leadership burden and the opposition that Joshua would face. He knew the shadow Joshua would live in as the leader following Moses: the man who led the Israelites out of Egypt, who had met God face-to-face on Mount Sinai, and who delivered the Ten Commandments to God’s people.
Midlife and the Striver’s Curse
In this article the author describes three lies that we tend to believe as we head into middle age. He also offers helpful, corrective truths.
While there is some debate on when midlife occurs, I’m going to suggest that it begins sometime between ages thirty-five to forty-five. This season is revealing to me where I have unknowingly believed some lies. While always susceptible to them, they have a tendency to creep up with intensity in midlife.
