5 Key Connections: A Poem, A Kwitter, and more

September 26, 2019

Here are 5 key passages from recent Christian content around the web, including a poem on Jesus as the sacrificial lamb and an article on why quitting Twitter might be a good idea.

On Being A Kwitter (Tim Challies)

Yet Twitter is a medium that seems to generate conflict and to thrive upon it. I find it a discouraging and intimidating place to be. I derive negligible pleasure from it. It adds nothing necessary to my life and very little that’s truly beneficial.

Where is the Lamb? (Peter Spaulding, Fathom)

A great poem that gets at, in my reading of it, Isaac’s willingness to fulfill God’s will, foreshadowing Jesus’s willing sacrifice of his innocent life in order to redeem us. God’s love for us came at a great cost to Him!

An impressively bearded Abraham
looms over a chiseled and youthful
Isaac that makes you wonder, like,
how’d Abraham even get him down?

Hebrews 13:9-25: Christ is Better Than Any Other (Josh Moody, God Centered Life)

What then do we learn from this Book of Hebrews? First, that Christ is better than any other Old Testament religion, and therefore, that he is also better than any other “new” idea too. And the consequence is that we must not give up meeting together but encourage one another daily and all the more as we see the return of Christ approaching.  

Desiring Christ (Jeremy Walker/John Flavel, The Wanderer)

Consider the way and course you have taken since you came into the world, proceeding from iniquity to iniquity. What command of God have you not violated a thousand times over? What sin is committed in the world, that you are not one way or other guilty of before God? How many secret sins upon your score, unknown to the most intimate friend you have in the world? Either this guilt must be separated from your souls, or your souls from God to all eternity.

5 Surprising Truths about Biblical Kindness (Davis Wetherell, Unlocking the Bible)

God’s kindness is stronger than death! This was true in Naomi’s day, in Paul’s day, and also in ours. If we are in Christ, we shall always see the power of God’s lovingkindness.
