Top 4 pride and suffering

This week… Links to posts about Pride and suffering…

  1. What happened to pride in the gospel message?
  2. Should we take pride that God asks us to help spread His message?
  3. Should we take pride in being told we remind others of someone famous?
  4. Suffering- What god is suffering and why does God allow it?

1. Pride in the Gospel?

“Pride” is a word that has become synonymous with the LGBT cause.

Tim Challies asks why Christians don’t take more pride in the Gospel…

Why society in general deems the gospel worthy of mockery and the gay cause worthy of pride.

Read his thoughts from Challies.com

2. Pride in who others say we remind them of…

Who do you want to be when you grow up?

Having not grown up yet myself (sigh) it seems a relevant question.

Would I want people to say I remind them of some well-known person?

Shauna Niequest thinks about the question… and tells us who she does and does NOT want to be like…

3. Pride in what God asks us to do…

The great commission…

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. ” Matthew 28:19-20

Ever heard that passage and had thoughts like these….

“Surely that’s not meant for ordinary people like me…”

“But if it is meant for me….”

“Maybe I’m not so ordinary after all…”

Why would God ask ordinary people to help spread the good news of his gospel?

Karen Brown offers an interesting and humbling perspective in this post from her blog, Stooping for Manna.

4. Suffering… Why does God allow suffering?

Are you suffering now?

Then surely you have asked what good could possibly be produced by suffering?

Dave Zuleger, writing on Desiring God, says there is a good reason God allows us to suffer…

His words are meaningful and touching since he speaks not just from an academic or theological standpoint, but from suffering he has witnessed in people very close to him.

There are so many great Christian posts on the internet.

Did you read a great post last week?
