Worth Reading

How I Work: An Interview with Steven Grant

“A key component of TGC’s view of gospel-centered ministry is the integration of faith and work. We seek to help Christians work with distinctiveness, excellence, and accountability in their trades and professions. To aid in this effort we’re launching a new series, ‘How I Work,’ in which we ask people to share their shortcuts, tools, and routines that help them do their jobs or fulfill their vocational roles. (The concept and format are borrowed from the excellent Lifehacker series on work.)”

Four Truths About God’s Provision

“When you put your faith in Christ, God commissions himself to protect, provide, and care for you (Philippians 4:19). God always provides for his children, though often it is not in the way we expect or hope.”

An Insider’s Look at Your Pastor’s Heart

“Paul’s letters in the New Testament are full of prayers for his fellow believers. Among other things he thanks God for the faith of the churches, their spiritual gifts and good works, and their partnership in the gospel. In addition to thanking God for what He had done through these churches, he also made requests on their behalf. Paul prayed for their growth in faith, wisdom, and knowledge, and for their growth in love for one another and outsiders. He prayed they would be filled with the fruit of righteousness, for unity within the church, and that they would have joy.”

Let’s Not Forget About the Asexual Among Us? They Want us to Know They Don’t Care About Sex…or Something Like That.

“It seems everyone these days is interested in sex in some way. Whether we’re talking about heterosexual, homosexual, bi-sexual or transsexual; everyone is interested in sex in one way or another. Everyone except for…the asexual person.”

For the Mouth of the Lord Hath Spoken It: The Real Meaning of Handel’s “Messiah”

“Though his work is almost universally known within the English-speaking world, Charles Jennens is virtually unknown. He was a brilliant librettist — a writer of texts to be put to music by others. Born in the year 1700, Jennens inherited his father’s vast estate and wealth, attended Oxford University, and became a gentleman scholar. He published a controversial interpretation of William Shakespeare and lived a life of extravagance and eccentricity. That could have been the end of his story, but it was not.”
