Find Out More On... {August 14}

Each week, Jess Pickowicz, our resident curation genius, brings us the best of the blogosphere for Christian women. Here are Jess' top picks from last week, collected in one convenient post.

All About Peter

Grace to You has a wonderful article series derived from John MacArthur's book and study Twelve Ordinary Men. This series is all about Peter. Here are a few of the links. Take some time to read them. They are devotional and edifying.

Peter: The Compassionate and Courageous Leader
Peter: The Servant Leader
Peter: The Submissive Leader

Theology Through Flames

Ligonier shared an excerpt from Steven Lawson's contribution to Legacy of Luther. Since October marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we'll be seeing a lot more articles on this theme. But this one, in particular, is phenomenal. I love all the rich history and application packed into this little article. "Luther maintained that theology is not learned only in the safety of a lecture hall, but in the flames of adversity. In fiery trials, one is humbled and broken. It is then that a leader is made most teachable. In difficult times, the illuminating work of the Holy Spirit often shines brightest. Broken hearts make for receptive minds."

Praise the Lord!

Lianna Davis, with For the Church, shared 70 Prompts for Praising God. This is a good one to print out and stick in your Bible or your prayer journal. "How majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens... When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him... How majestic is your name in all the earth" (Psalm 8).

6 Life Changing Sermons

This week, Jesse Johnson of Cripplegate shared this article titled 6 Life-Changing Sermons. Download these and listen to them on your commutes ladies. You will surely be blessed and edified. 

The Priority of Worship

The Priority of Worship from Renewing Your Mind with R.C. Sproul. "One of the most neglected contributions of the Reformation is its emphasis on the importance of public worship. Today, Sinclair Ferguson considers why reforming worship is of the utmost importance for the church worldwide in the future." (26 minutes)
