Link List Turns 250

Screenshot 2015-04-08 at 10.26.27 AMI don’t mention the Wednesday Link List on here every week for several reasons. For one thing, many of my readers are probably reading or following Canadian blogger Paul Wilkinson already. Linking a list of blog links also has a certain redundancy to it, especially if the list includes a link back here. I do post a link every week on the Facebook page, but that page has fewer followers than this blog and of course not everyone is on Facebook, so I do like to mention it from time to time.

Today marks a milestone as the Wednesday version of the Link List hits 250 posts!  It also contains a couple of posts I really enjoyed, like 10 Secrets of the Senior Pastor and the Religious Affections article on How Our Children Learn to Worship. So if you haven’t seen today’s Wednesday Link List pop in for a short visit. It’s also better to click through and leave comments at the sources and not just on the Link List page.

The Read and Share File

I would like to try something new.  Sometimes I’m reading or watching the news, and a statement or comment lights that creative spark and I sit down and crank out a blog post.  At other times I read something in an article or on a blog and think “Oh that’s neat,” then go about what I’m doing.  I don’t feel compelled to write 800 words, but would like to share with my readers those things that have blessed me or twisted my noodle just a little bit.

I’m still working on the concept – and the title – but let’s begin with the Read and Share File and see how it goes.

Daniel Jepsen at his self title blog explains Why I Don’t Preach the Law.  The Apostle Paul points out that the Law is useful, but has limitations.  Namely the Law does not make us righteous.  Jepsen lists shortcomings of preaching the Law rather than sharing the Gospel.

Internet Monk (apparently doing a whole series on wilderness, but I missed the announcement) has this to say about the Wilderness of Life Under the Law.  If all you get from the Old Testament is the Law, you’re missing out.  Abraham was justified by faith before God gave the Law.

Steve Brown of Steve Brown Etc. had published a book, Three Free Sins.  He is in the middle of a very short book tour.  Tons of stuff to read, download and listen to on his blog.

Paul Wilkinson publishes the mother of all link pages every Wednesday.  Here is the special, limited edition Leap Day Link List.
