Each Friday, we share links we found especially interesting or inspiring during the previous week.
Who "is" or "Becomes" your neighbour?
Bill Mounce discusses verb tenses and briefly reflects on becoming someone's neighbour. Yes, this is a discussion of biblical Greek, but perhaps it will reveal the usefulness of knowing the original language!
Promoting the Work of Others - Christina Fox
God gives us all different gifts and graces to use to build up and help the church body grow. Each one of us has gifts and they are all important. Your gift might be teaching or preaching. Another's might be service. Still another may have artistic or musical gifts. Some gifts are more prominent and noticeable, while others have gifts that are used behind the scenes. Each one of those gifts is important. We need everyone's gifts to make the church body function.And one more link: I believe in the life everlasting - Sam Powell
Can the idea that God suffers with us bring us comfort in times of suffering? On first glance, it might appear to, but if you really think about it, there's little hope to be found in a suffering God. No, in times of suffering we need a God who does not suffer [Matthew Barrett].
