Key Connections (March 15, 2017)

The Secret to Job Satisfaction (Marshall Segal, Desiring God)

Another paycheck may feel like our most immediate need, but it is another grain of sand compared with all God will give us in eternity.

Does God Just Tolerate Me? (Ryan Higginbottom, Unlocking the Bible)

I can be persuaded that [God] loves me at times. But to delight in me? That seems too outlandish, too fantastic to believe.

Reviving a Lifeless Bible Study (Laura Booz, True Woman)

Instead of Bible study feeling as natural as my own heartbeat (as it used to feel), it now feels more like wrestling a lion.

If God is in control, why should we pray? (Christopher Ash, The Good Book Company)

The answer is that it’s not going to happen “anyway”; it is going to happen in one particular way.

The Gospel and How We Grow (Jim Hudson, Gospel-Centered Discipleship)

Sadly, too many Christians would say that the God who resurrects dead bodies offers no practical help with porn, broken marriages, anger, alcohol abuse, etc.
