Favorite Finds Friday:


The following are a collection of articles, sites, podcasts, and other finds I have found this week that I thought I would recommend. I hope you find these especially encouraging and edifying in your walk with Christ.


70 Prompts for Adoring God

Why’s there so much blood in the Old Testament? (David Murray)

Christian Living

A Sound Conversion (Richard Sibbes)
“It is evident that our conversion is sound when we loathe and hate sin from the heart.”

Why Do You Work? (Stephen Nichols)
“So again, why do you work? I find the start of the answer in Psalm 104. Psalm 104 is a reflection on creation and maybe even a further reflection on the flood of Genesis 6–8. We see the psalmist poetically describing not just God’s creation of the earth and of all creatures, but we also see God’s intimate work in sustaining His creation and the creatures He made (vv. 1–13).”

Criticism: How to Handle Criticism Wisely

Faithful Vigilance (W. Robert Godfrey)
“Paul’s call to thoughtful vigilance is needed more today than ever. Ministers, elders, and church members today must be renewed in the truth by a full and careful knowledge of doctrine contained for us in the great confessions of the churches. Then we will know where and when to fight, as well as the truth for which we fight.”

There’s A Lack Of Holiness (Paul Washer)


As a Society Thinks, So Will it Behave (Trey Talley)
“A society that has removed God from their thinking should expect a people who behave as if there is no God…Belief and/or unbelief guides a person’s behavior. If we want our children to love God, obey God, and strive to live godly lives, then let us intentionally teach them about Him.”


Almost: an addendum since releasing this episode (Summer White)
“Since God is real, we love Christ’s bride by creating disciples by the means He has given us—with the Word, not emotionalism or pagan practices. (2 Tim 3)
Since God is real, we love our neighbors more than our comfort, by telling them the truth even if it makes us uncomfortable. (John 8:32)”

Three Lessons From the Extraordinary Life of Billy Graham (Dr. Steve Lawson)
“Dr. Graham’s tireless engine was fueled by a fervent passion to reach souls for Christ. May God grant that such a fire would burn in each of our hearts.”

“Oh that Men Would Praise the Lord”, Lost Sermon No. 105 (The Spurgeon Center)
“Spurgeon makes it clear that praise is also prayer, or ‘holy joy in him,’ as well as generous offerings and a life lived in faith. Not to mention the praise God receives when his saints live uprightly, or as Spurgeon calls it ‘singing as you shine.'”

Did You Know That Charles Spurgeon Struggled with Depression? (Michael Reeves)
“In suffering, then, it is not only the case that we get to draw nearer to Christ, becoming more like him and leaning more fully on him. In such times Christ draws near to us to walk with his people in the furnace. And not only to walk with us but to bear us through.”


How To Pray for your Brothers and Sisters in Korea (Joel Kim, President of Westminster Seminary)
“Watching the Olympics taking place in South Korea has been bitter sweet for me. It exposes the pain, brokenness, and idolatry of the human heart even as it inspires, offers hope, and promotes unity. It reminds me that this is not my home and increases my longing for that day when unity and peace are not a temporary spectacle but a permanent reality.”

Hallowed Be Thy Name – The Lord’s Prayer Part 2 (Clint Archer)
“Whatever “the God you believe in” is like, is irrelevant. The one true and living God, Yahweh, is the one who revealed himself in Scripture. If the god you are worshipping has a different reputation, different deeds, different standards, different attributes, and a different character than the God of the Bible, then you are worshipping a different god.”


The History of Astronomy (Dr. Jason Lisle)
“The development of astronomy throughout history is a magnificent confirmation of biblical authority. The Bible is God’s inerrant, propositional revelation to man. As such, the Bible is absolutely correct in everything it affirms. This naturally includes its claims about the universe. When the Bible touches on the topic of astronomy, it is absolutely correct. The history of astronomy confirms this.”

Scallop’s amazing mirror eyes (Jonathan Sarfati)
“Like thousands of other features in living things, the scallop eye testifies to the engineering skill of its Creator.”


How Not to Do Theology (Robert Rothwell)
“We must do theology from a position of humility. We who have studied theology for years as well as new Christians must never think that we have learned all there is to know. We are not infallible, and we need to learn from one another so that we are all continually growing toward maturity in Christ.”
