Once or twice a month, I gather up links to some of my favourite reading and resources from the past fortnight. I’d love to know what you’ve been reading in the comments too.
Can You Be Content with Singleness Today?
My thinking has been shifting more towards this question lately. I don’t need to feel content right now about a liftetime of singleness—I just need to trust that God will give me contentment for each day, even if that lasts a lifetime.
All the Hell You Shall Ever Have
This article had me at the first Puritan quote. Whenever I face suffering in this life, I can tell myself that this is the closest to hell I will ever get.
Riper for Repentance?
Andrew Kerr gives twelve directives for a life of ever-increasing repentance.
How to Lead Women’s Ministry in a Complementarian Church
I’m incredibly blessed to work with kind and humble pastors who do many of these things well.
Avoiding Difficult People Is Not Christlike Love
Teaching Women to Teach (Help Me Teach the Bible)
Women being taught to handle the Bible rightly? I’m here for it.
How to Read the Bible (Knowing Faith, episode 30)
Jen Wilkin is one of my faves, and I always love hearing her talk about her passion for reading the Bible well.
Ligon Duncan on Covenant Theology vs. Dispensationalism (Help Me Teach the Bible)
I’m glad they linked to a few resources, because I’m keen to sharpen my understand of covenant theology.
He Must Increase, I Must Decrease (Desiring God)
John Piper teaches on John the Baptist’s humble and joyful response to Jesus—a great challenge to me!
In 1555, as John Bradford was tied to the stake, he said to fellow martyr John Leaf:
“Be of good comfort, brother, for we shall have a merry supper with the Lord this night.”

In the hour, when death shall open the door into eternity—many things which now assume an 'air of importance', will be found as light and unsubstantial as a child's dream!

“We work with you for your joy” (2 Cor 1:24). My favourite summary of pastoral ministry in Scripture: working with people for their eternal happiness.

Had this thought today: I can't keep up with everything going on. There's so much going on. And then I thought, wait your job isn't to keep up with everything, it's to be faithful to what God has called you to. What a relief. Maybe that'll encourage someone else today.

God's calling is irrevocable, his purposes sure, his promises kept, his love unfailing, his power inexhaustible. What are we worried about?
