Friday's Five To Live By

Each Friday our BCC staff links you to the top five biblical counseling and Christian living blog posts of the week—posts that provide robust, rich, and relevant insights for living.

Suffering and Blessings

Rick Thomas calls suffering our most feared blessing. He then provides a robust and practical biblical theology of suffering. Learn from his wisdom in Suffering: How to Steward God’s Most Feared Blessing.

The Holy Spirit and Parenting

Daniel Darling shares an excellent guest post at The Gospel Coalition in which he contrasts result-focused parenting with Holy Spirit dependent-parenting. Read his insights at Do Not Neglect the Holy Spirit in Parenting.

The Gospel and Biblical Counseling

Jeremy Lelek, President of the Association of Biblical Counselors, explores the absolute necessity of being Christ-dependent and Gospel-centered in all of our one-another ministry. He shares his thoughts in The Unseen Stream of Redemption.

Pastoral Ministry and God’s Call

Pastor Steve Cornell explores God’s calling to ministry in So You Want to Be a Pastor? Read his 7 points regarding pastoral calling and his 10 roles of pastors/elders.

Public Schools and God’s Glory

There are a lot of books on homeschool, but what about a book on glorifying God while choosing to send your children to a public school? Tim Challies provides a very helpful review of just such a book—the title of his post and the book are the same: Going Public: Your Child Can Thrive in Public School.
