Developing RIght Thinking..., Things I've Read

Developing Right Thinking (8/19)

It is so critical that we continue to develop right thinking amidst our sinful world.  I’m so thankful for the godly men and women who are diligently addressing the relevant cultural issues.  Each week I come across articles that I believe are worth sharing and I link to them here (usually on Fridays).  I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read and enjoy as you strive to continue to develop right thinking!

The Logic of Fearlessness – John Piper (Desiring God) – Understanding the Biblical truth that both faith and suffering are gifts of God.  “So the logic of fearlessness in the face of adversity is this double truth: Both your adversity and your faith in the face of adversity are gifts of God.”
Glorying in Indicatives and Insisting on Imperatives – Kevin DeYoung (The Gospel Coalition) – A little longer and deeper read, but DeYoung helps clarify the issue of the centrality of the gospel in our lives. We need to push to obey the commands of Scripture in life and emphasize the gospel in an appropriate way.
Singing to Build Up – Greg Gilbert (9Marks) – Gilbert addresses a couple key issues related to singing in a Sunday morning service…they really only apply if you go to church, so read accordingly.
Shaping and Sustaining Servant Leaders with the Gospel – Tullian Tchividjian (The Gospel Coalition) – Tullian cuts right to the heart of servant leadership as he first defines the term before moving to explain the need for an intentional process to build up servant leaders. “If servant leadership involves attitudes and action, we must then ask: what kind of person will lead in this way? What qualities and characteristics make up the servant leader? Above all else, the servant leader is someone who has appropriated the glory of the gospel and been freed to care for the good of others.”
37 Ways to Love One Another – Paul Tautges (Immanuel Bible Church – Wisconsin) – This link summarizes the ‘one anothers’ of Scripture.  Feel free to puruise and challenge yourself this week to walk in love as you engage with others. “The Christian life is all about relationships. It’s God’s design for our personal growth, which then translates into church growth—the real kind. Loving one another is a powerful evangelistic tool, as Jesus says: “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35).”
