5 Key Connections: Bible Study, Struggles, and more

June 20, 2019

Here are 5 Key Connections from recent Christian articles around the web, including one on the most epic bible study of all time, another on the struggle against sin, and more!

Imperishable, Undefiled, and Unfading (John MacArthur, Grace to You)

Our inheritance is a glorious thing. No earthly thing compares to it. But we can lose sight of it through worldly pursuits and the quest for instant gratification. Dear friends, don’t collect this world’s trash and neglect the treasure of our unspeakable riches in Christ.

Why Does God Allow Us to Keep Struggling Against Sin? (J.D. Greear Ministries)

The love of God does what the law could not. When we were married to the law, it was a way to gain acceptance from God, but now that we have been saved by Christ, the law is a way to please the one who saved us.

Four Ways to Pray When You Feel Like Giving Up (Colin Smith, Unlocking the Bible)

We spend too much time listening to the voices of fear and frustration and complaining. We need to speak to ourselves–we sometimes call this “preaching the gospel to ourselves.” There is no better place to do that than when you come into the presence of God in prayer.

The Most Epic Bible Study of All Time (Garret Kell, TGC)

[Jesus] could have shown himself to be the greater Job who suffered, not because of his sin, but because of his righteousness. And though he was misunderstood, God raised him off the ash heap of shame to intercede for those who’d formerly opposed him 

The Gospel According to Job (Laura Baxter, Servants of Grace)

God also refuses to leave us alone. No, he has greater plans than that. Man-born-of-woman is a slave to sin and corruption. But as believers, we are destined to become sons and daughters, even heirs of all God’s world
