Friday's 5 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.

Keep It Vertical

We live in a day and in a society where our stand for Christ is less and less appreciated. Julie Ganschow reminds us in these situations to, “Be encouraged when your faith brings ridicule and rejection into your life and keep that vertical view in mind!” Read her further words of encouragement in Taking the Vertical View When Ridiculed.

What Do You Call Your Counseling?

At his RPM Ministries site, Bob Kellemen lists dozens of names/labels for counseling—from the biblical counseling world, from church history, and from the Bible. Read his thoughts at What Do You Call Your Counseling? 

Take It Back to Jesus

At the Gospel-Centered Discipleship site, J.A. Medders encourages us to help people to focus on Jesus. When people have complaints or concerns about “religion” or “the church,” Take It Back to Jesus.

Forsaken Faith

Randy Alcorn writes:

“The percentage of college students today who grow up in Christian homes and later turn their backs on Christ is stunning, almost beyond belief. I believe it’s vital that parents and church leaders understand some of the major reasons behind this trend—and know what they can do now to help their children prepare for the challenges ahead.”

God’s Gospel, God’s Commands, and God’s Mission

Trevin Wax reminds us that, “‘Gospel-centered’ has become a buzzword and risks losing its meaning. What do we mean by this terminology?” Visit his site and view the video where he and other leaders address this question and more in God’s Gospel, God’s Commands, and God’s Mission.
