Each week, there are hundreds upon thousands of blog posts written by people all over the world. I find myself each week reading a few of them. I have taken the time to link to some of my favorite blog posts from around the blogosphere from the previous week. I hope that maybe one or two of these stories will be an encouragement to you.
- What The Bible Says About Heaven Books by Tim Challies. He does a really good job of comparing some of the trendy "I went to heaven and came back to tell about it" stories with biblical examples of people who went to heaven. It would be worth a read. This is a follow-up of what he summarized in a Heaven Tourism blog post that is also worth your time.
- The Great Gift Certificate Giveaway by Tim Challies. I couldn't help but to list this as well as he has a major giveaway going on that ends in a couple days. He is giving away $500 worth of gift certificates to Monergism Books (He suggests that it be $250 to you and $250 to your pastor - I highly recommend that!).
- 3 Lies We Tell Ourselves About Marriage: Marriage is About My Happiness by Aaron Armstrong. I find this so often in people, they think that getting married is about their own personal happiness. Instead, we should probably see it as a means to grow in holiness. This is part of a 3-part series by Armstrong that are all worth reading (Marriage Is Supposed To Be Easy & My Spouse Is The Problem)
- Pastoral Theology: Some Book Recommendations by Kevin DeYoung. This might not be for you, but you never know. If you are looking for a great list of great books that their church recommends for all the different realms of pastoral ministry. I would add, there are many on here that are not just for pastoral ministry, are helpful for all ministry.
