Saturday Sampler: June 19 — June 25

I’m glad Chris Hohnholz has started blogging more frequently at Slave to the King, although John and I have been more than happy with his weekly postings of the Voice of Reason Radio podcasts that he co-hosts with his friend, Richard Story. Chris warns us that The Most Dangerous Thing We Can Say is “We’ve got to do something!” Find out why he opposes that mindset.

In her article for CBMW, Sharon James lists 5 Reasons Why We Should Not Stop Using Male Pronouns for God by appealing to God’s authority in revealing Himself. I recommend this piece both for its excellent handling of God’s Word and for its reverence for the Lord.

Elizabeth Prata warns Christians to Run Away From Temptation Island in The End Time. She starts by admonishing us to avoid a certain television show, but uses her admonition to then counsel us against flirting with temptation of any sort. Her conclusion brings hope and encouragement that you won’t want to miss.

Even as Christians, we often struggle to take life as seriously as we ought. So Teach Us to Number Our Days by Cindy Matson of Bible Study Nerd examines a psalm that Moses wrote, applying it to the intricacies of contemporary life. Personally, I like her thoughts on how enjoying a piece of chocolate can help us number our days. Are you numbering your days well?

Sometimes our troubles cause us such despair that we struggle to look at the bigger picture, as Tim Challies demonstrates in The Thing About Light and Momentary. I love his balance in acknowledging human emotion while maintaining the truth of God’s Word.

Peter Krol of Knowable Word has been writing a wonderfully helpful series on the proper use of Bible Commentaries over the past several weeks. His latest installment, Your Test: Can You Do What the Commentator Did?, gets down to the heart of what he’s been trying to communicate all along. Even if you’ve missed his previous posts, don’t pass this one up!

Indeed, yesterday was A Day To Celebrate! Robin Self of A Worthy Walk rejoices over the Supreme Court’s courageous decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Robin acknowledges that there’s still a long way to go before abortion is completely abolished in the United States, but we can praise God for this amazing milestone as we keep fighting and praying. To God be the glory!
