Key Connections (March 8, 2017)

The Shack — The Missing Art of Evangelical Discernment (Al Mohler, Albert Mohler)

The popularity of this book among evangelicals can only be explained by a lack of basic theological knowledge among us — a failure even to understand the Gospel of Christ.

5 Reasons You Desperately Need Your Bible (Kristen Wetherell, For The Church)

Why is it so important for us to read this book? What’s the urgency of it?

7 Gospel Promises To Embrace Today (Paul Tripp, Paul Tripp)

We either don’t understand, or fail to embrace, the theology of the “now-ism” of the gospel. In other words, we don’t take full advantage of all the benefits of the work of Christ today.

Six Ways the Church Can Stand with Women (Chelsea Stanley, Desiring God)

Exalting women is attractive to the outside world. If we are celebrating and empowering women inside our walls, people are bound to ask, “Why?” And when they do, we can point them to Jesus.

The Most Important Motivation for Spiritual Discipline (Brad Archer, Unlocking the Bible)

Spiritual disciplines are not binding, they are freeing. Christ frees us to love the race we are running with him, even when we are tired and sore.
