Community Pool: Good Stuff Floating Around the Web

We thought it might be interesting to post a collection of “good stuff” that we’ve found this week from around the web.  Maybe this will become a weekly thing if time permits. Our findings are eclectic but hopefully spiritually informative and helpful.  So here it goes.


 

First, great book findings.  These are commentaries (2 volumes) on the Psalms by Steve Lawson.  Seriously, $2.99 per volume on Kindle.  Go splurge.

5 Points for Building a Vision of World Missions

Another thoughtful article on world missions by John Piper, who writes, “You can be a goer, a sender, or disobedient. The Bible does not assume that everyone goes. But it does assume that the ones who do not go care about goers and support goers and pray for goers and hold the rope of the goers.”

Seven Costs of Disciple-Making

David Mathis is the executive editor for the Desiring God website.  He’s a prolific writer that we enjoy reading.  Regarding disciple-making, he writes:

Disciple-making involves personal attention and guidance from one maturing Christian to another “younger” believer in the faith. It’s essentially spiritual parenting — intentionally and relationally investing oneself in the spiritual growth and maturity of a few disciples — part of which is training those disciples to then disciple others who disciple others.

He goes on to discuss the difficulties in disciple-making such as opposition, staying on mission, the selection process, energy costs, taking the initiative, and the cost in time.

Last but not least, Joel Beeke shares his thoughts on what a holy man or woman looks like.
