Take Up and Read

Uri Brito is writing more on his blog. I am grateful for this. I have enjoyed reading him. This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday. Unfortunately most of the Church doesn't know. Pastor Brito reminds us why it is important. 

Peter Leithart explains why he is too Catholic to be a Roman Catholic.

I do not know who these people are, but they have created a really neat infographic about the kings who ruled Israel and Judah. They even tell you which kings were good, sort of good, and bad. If you struggle to get the kings down this is a wonderful resource.

It is easy to believe that we are God's gift to our local church. A lady wrote a post earlier this week on eleven ways to hurt your local church. It is a convicting article. Too many of us fall into one or many of the sins listed. I encourage you to read it and pray through it.  She wrote two follow up posts: one on how church conflict can sanctify us. And one on how to love your local church.

Finally,  I have always enjoyed R.C.Sproul Jr.'s writing, his love for the Lord Jesus, and his passion for the good, simple life. Here he explains why we don't need accountability groups if we have friends. As usual, he is short and his arrow hits the target.

That info-graphic is great. and the list of ways to poison the body, so many of those are potential problems with relationships in general.

Tim, I enjoyed the info-graphic a lot. They said it will eventually become a poster. If it does I will get it for the boys.

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
