Food For Thought: Snowmaggedon Edition

Every week here at Pursuing Glory I try to bring together the best posts I’ve found that will equip the end-times church to operate in her God-ordained destiny.  These are the best blogs, articles, books and other resources related to our purpose here at this site.  Feel free to visit, comment, and make use of the resources found at each site.

This week finds me pretty much snowed in my house, with the news predicting 8 to 12 inches of snow.  There are a lot worse things that could happen. I got to play with some of the most fun kids I know.  There’s nothing quite like spontaneous, fun, free time with the family. If only I didn’t have to shovel first. And now, on to the links:

If We Have Been Raised With Christ

One of the traps we fall into frequently is letting the things of Jesus distract us from actually knowing and following Him. Quincy at Christ the Center takes a look at Paul’s instruction to the Colossians and how we can reclaim the wonder of simply knowing Christ.

The Passion of the Sheep

One of the downfalls of making the transition into an organic church setting is that we can lose focus on our Master in the process. That’s why I love this post by Mercy and Wolfgang Simson at While We Slept.  Being some of the original house church thinkers, they’re still finding themselves longing to know Jesus.  I think you’ll enjoy this post.

Too Busy To Think

This post by JD at Missiologically Thinking focuses on taking time to reflect on everything that you’re doing to increase Kingdom fruit. Getting this sort of macro-level thinking to happen frequently is important as we move forward in the days ahead.

Remember the Poor

Keith at Subversive1 shares about his journey into loving the poor more effectively.  This is one area I think house churches are particularly well suited for.

Plant Churches Like a Missionary, Not a Pastor

One of the errors I see many rushing into is the tendency to think that just by planting a church, the lost will automatically get saved and discipled.  Dave writes at the Resurgence about the need to be a missionary while planting a church, and not getting sucked into pastoring a group of only saved individuals.
