The outcomes of your life rest within your habits. Those tiny seemingly insignificant actions compound over time. They create the future you live in. “Time magnifies,” James Clear says, “the margin between success and failure. It will multiply whatever you feed it. Good habits make time your ally. Bad habits make time your enemy.”
Below is a collection of my learning habits this past month. Each item represents a resource influencing my life. Learning is a key component of my daily habits. I make it a point to avail myself to the vast resources living in the information age affords.
It is my prayer that this collection of influences is helpful to you. I pray that you find one thing to add to your tool belt and acquaint yourself with. If you find value in anything you find below, please share this post with a friend. Perhaps they will find it helpful as well.
The celebration of Easter marks the calendar each April. Yet for the Christian every day is a celebration of what Easter is about–the Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth.
This two-part series walks you through evidence of the Resurrection. Christianity would be false if this singular event didn’t happen. In fact, the Apostle Paul said, “...if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.” Everything hinges on the Resurrection. This series will help you understand why you can have confidence it happened the way the Scriptures say it did.
Frank Turek’s ministry is a blessing. It is churning out materials and information to help Christian’s give a better defense of the faith. Frank and his team accumulate resources within an application called the Cross-Examined App. The app contains podcast and blog archives, as well as quick answers to questions common objections Christian’s face.
May has been a month filled with the insights of Frank Turek. I’ve been chewing through episodes of his podcast at a furious pace. Along the way, I also downloaded a copy of I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist.
We are Christians for evidential reasons. We are not Christians because it “works for us”, “makes us feel good”, or “because we had an experience.” No, we are Christians because that is where the evidence points us. I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist walks through the evidence. It shows that not only is belief in God logical, but that trust in the Jesus of Nazareth, is the only path that makes sense. In short, it makes clear that faith isn’t a leap in the dark, but trust in light of the evidence.
C. S. Lewis is everywhere I turn. His thoughts and insights fill the pages of every book I'm reading. Few things come to mind upon hearing his name as Mere Christianity.
Lewis’ is worth returning to often, and I can think of no better place to visit than the pages of Mere Christianity. It has a way of clearing the path and allowing you to see things as if for the first time. Mere Christianity is like a warm blanket for the Christian soul. Thankfully it is also a strong defense against the thrusts of the critic.
