Five Star Links

Each Friday, we share links we found especially interesting or inspiring during the previous week. 


Todd Pruitt shares about his experience with depression and anxiety - The Hard Apprenticeship of Sorrow
This hard apprenticeship of sorrow has caused me to long for Christ’s appearing more than I otherwise would have. The promise that our returning Lord will wipe away every tear from our eyes is fuel for my desire for the New Creation. Christians who suffer from depression and anxiety tend to long for that home for which we were ultimately made."


Social media has affected the way we read, how our attention span works, and even how we think.  Trevin Wax gives a brief discussion about how social media has changed us.


Remember the story of Israel and the golden calf? It's a bit shocking, isn't it? How could the Israelites so brazenly—and stupidly—disobey the God who brought them out of slavery in Egypt? And who worships a golden calf, anyway? Why would they do what they did?

And what significance does their story have for us? Is there anything we can we learn from this piece Israel's history? James M. Todd III answers these questions and more in Credo Magazine.


Crossway is featuring seven video snapshots exploring the Christian life from seven of church history's greatest theologians.
The Bible calls us to be conformed to the image of Christ, our greatest example of godly living. Yet God has also given us examples of faithful Christian living throughout the history of the church—examples we would do well to emulate.
