Good and profitable reading to build up God’s people

Here are some links to several worthwhile blog posts. I encourage you to check them out. I think you will find them profitable.

Phil Johnson, at “Pyromaniacs”, posts an excerpt from a sermon by the 19th century British preacher, Charles Spurgeon. Their post, “A Recipe for Church Growth”, is a good remedy for the present-day preoccupation with church growth “methods”.

Adrian Warnock quotes the late Martyn Lloyd-Jones, asking, “Dead Orthodoxy or An Encounter With God?”

Over at “Pure Church”, Thabiti Anyabwile) posted a meditation pastors should be interested in: “The Pastor’s Heart in Paul’s Letters”.

Dan Edelen, of “Cerulean Sanctum”, writes about “The Holy Who?” To what he writes, I say a hearty, “Amen!”

The “Black Creole Reformer”, Scotty Williams, has posted “The Truth About Christian Conversion”.

At “The Purple Cellar”, Jennifer Redman has posted “What’s In Your Hand?” (Part 1). Men, it’s all right, you know, to read a blog written by a woman. Go on, and check it out!

At “Between Two Worlds”, Justin Taylor links to an article by Curtis “Voice” Allen, writing about the criticisms he received for performing a rap at John Piper’s church, Bethlehem Baptist in Minneapolis (he was invited, by the way). “Voice” has a good word for all of us on how we should handle criticism.

The blog at “Na—New Attitude” has a link to “Interrogating the Legalist Within”, an article by C.J. Mahaney. I constantly need to be reminded of this truth that Mahaney writes about. Read the article; I think you will find it a blessing to your soul, also.

And, finally, there’s always a whole bunch of good stuff to read, study and learn from—that will also aid you in understanding God’s word—at Desiring God and Monergism.com. And most of it is FREE. Be sure to bookmark these pages and check them out when you have time. You won’t regret it.
