5 Key Connections: Faithless, Rejection, and more…

August 1, 2019

Here are 5 Key Connections from recent Christian articles around the web, including how God is faithful even when you’re faithless, and how to handle rejection.

Why I Need A Church that Judges Me (Allen Nelson IV, Things Above Us)

Often we think it noble to say things like “our church doesn’t judge anybody!” or “you’ll find no judging here.” But let’s be clear, a church that doesn’t judge is a church not faithful to Her Master (at best), and at worst, is not an actual church at all.

4 Promises to Christians about the Resurrected Body (Colin Smith, Unlocking the Bible)

Christ made you (body and soul), and he will redeem you (body and soul). He will do it in this order; soul now, body later. All that God has made is good and all that God has made he will redeem. 

How to Handle Rejection (Michael Riccardi, The Master’s Seminary)

Rejection is, in many ways, our heritage. As our Lord Himself said, if the world hated Him, it is not surprising that the world hates us, His slaves (John 15:18–21). If we are faithfully living out the Christian life and proclaiming the gospel with our words, we are sure to encounter rejection. In spite of this and other assurances from Scripture, though, many of us still shy away from evangelism for fear of being rejected.

Do Not Miss the Theology of the Song (Josh Buice, Delivered By Grace)

Singing to God is about praising God first, but it also serves to teach us about God—especially the little ones who are with us in the worship services. Remember, words matter, songs matter, worship matters, and as we sing—we must labor to not miss the theology of the song.

God Is Faithful, Even When You’re Faithless (Kim Jaggers, Revive Our Hearts)

Maybe life seems unfair. Maybe you want to question God’s goodness. Oh friend, hold on! He brings beauty from ashes! He works hard things together for good in our lives and the lives of those we love!
