Friday’s 5 to Live By

Friday's 5 To Live By

Each Friday our BCC staff links you to the top five biblical counseling and Christian living blog posts of the week—posts that provide robust, rich, and relevant insights for living.

Making the Case: Abortion

How can Christians convince others that abortion is wrong? Tim Challies shares how we can make the pro-life case against abortion in Making the Case: Abortion.

Live to Die

In This May Push You Over the Edge, Jon Bloom introduces and links to a powerful message by John Piper on Colossians 1:24 entitled Live to Die.

12 Ways to Reassure Your Wife

What is a husband to do when his wife becomes aware of his porn addiction? Luke Gilkerson addresses this vital question in 12 Ways to Reassure Your Wife.

Surrendering to God’s Wisdom

Randy Alcorn writes:

“When I need a point-of-view adjustment, I read the last five chapters of Job. That’s where the focus shifts from Job’s questions about his suffering—and his friends’ proposed answers—to God’s majesty.”

Read the rest of his thoughts on Surrendering to God’s Wisdom.

Reading the Bible Narcissistically

At the Association of Biblical Counselors site, Pastor Tullian Tchividjian notes that:

“As Luke 24 shows, it’s possible to read the Bible, study the Bible, memorize large portions of the Bible–even listen to ‘expository’ preachers who are committed to preaching ‘verse by verse, line by line, precept by precept’—while missing the whole point of the Bible. It’s entirely possible, in other words, to read the stories and miss the Story.”

Read the rest of Tullian’s development of this idea at Reading the Bible Narcissistically.

    The link “12 Ways to Reassure Your Wife” above currently goes to the Desiring God article and not the correct one. Thank you for fixing this.
