Pastor’s Picks – Recommend Resources

These are recommend resources that we have been personally encouraged and challenged by and hope they do the same for you. It’s been said before that great leaders are readers, and we believe you need to be regularly reading your Bible and never stop learning. May the Lord bless you as you grow! -Pastor Tim Molter

Are you living like an orphan or an adopted child of God? The gospel of Jesus Christ doesn’t simply reconcile us vertically to God but also reconciles us horizontally to one another. In this book Russell Moore invites you into a conversation about adoption between both God and us, and with us and children who are in need of a family. I believe more firmly now than before that adoption forms a “real” family and that our adoption in Christ means the church is a family made up of all adopted sons and daughters of God.

As Christians we should care about the things that God cares about which is people. And if Christians did not adopt, do foster-care, help single parents, or care of orphans then we would be hypocrites to be only known as being pro-life. We should be caring for human life at all stages and care for individuals as Christ would.

The mission to share the love of Jesus includes caring for those around us. Too often we think of missionaries as those off in a far away country serving the Lord, but each of us are missionaries too and even more so if we are looking out for children around us from other countries. Once you read this book you’ll never view adoption the same again and that’s why I highly recommend and encourage you to learn more through reading this book.

What is the greatest problem facing our nation? The most troubling road on which our country is traveling begins an ends at our down front doors. It’s all in the family. In this wisdom-packed booklet author Alistair Begg walks through being a father God’s way and being a mother God’s way.

Drawing from the book of Ephesians, Alistair provides clear and practical accountabilities for both mothers and fathers that are God ordained. When God’s design for parenting is followed, everyone in the family thrives, and children grow to healthy-minded, God-honoring adults.

This business of parenting, you see, is not for the timid, and it will take everything you have and everything you are for it involves everything God ever meant you to be. It is life’s grand adventure and one day your children will look to your example for guidance in becoming parents themselves. May God fill and bless your days as you take up the joy of parenting – His way.
