HOW CHRISTIANITY FLOURISHES
Jared C. Wilson is one of my favorite writers. I followed his blog that he wrote with some friends called "Thinklings," until they abandoned it. (Yes, I forgive them. I'm not bitter!) They are all fans of C. S. Lewis. In his blog today he writes about how Christians flourish when they give all the glory to God. Other religions flourish when they try to work their way to heaven.
It is not a guarantee that Christians will do everything right when they are under pressure. I know that real believers will get caught up in trying to run the race without God, and will blow it. David in the Old Testament, was a Jew of course, but he had been anointed by Samuel to become the next king of Israel. He almost blew it when he threatened to kill Abigail's husband and all of her family because her husband would not give David any food for him and his men. She saved her family and her husband by giving David food. He thanked her for preventing him from making a big mistake. So Christians need to stick together so that we can hold each other accountable and grow in faith. Click here to read Jared's blog.
