Credo’s Cache

Each week we will be highlighting important resources. Check back each Friday to see what we have dug up for you. From this week’s cache:

1. What is Vulnerable Theology?: By Paul Maxwell – Maxwell says, “May the posts on this site reflect the attributes of a genuinely vulnerable theology—not weak, but manifesting the power of Christ in weakness. I openly confess—I will fail. Call me out on it. This list is a swing at starting something good and true. I welcome critique and dialogue, and hope my interlocutors will do the same.”

2. God’s Surprising Plans for Your Good: By Ben Stuart – Stuart says, “So when hardships come, we can cease shaking our fist and yelling at God, and instead lean into him and listen. He is good. He does care. He works all things together for the good of his children — even the arrival of wolves.”

3. 5 Pitfalls to Avoid in Sermon Illustrations: By Michael Kruger – Kruger says, “In the end, we can affirm the positive role of illustrations. But, if these five pitfalls are avoided, illustrations can be even more effective at doing what they were intended, namely pointing away from themselves and to the glory of Christ.”

4. Take Up and Read Beautiful Words: By Jeremy Writebol – Writebol suggests that, “Augustine was engaged by the beauty of the Bible as he heard little children singing “Tolle lege” (“take up and read”) so he took up the beautiful book and began to read the Bible. As God spoke Augustine saw the spring from which everlasting water flows—Christ himself. We would be wise to do the same. “Take up and read” to see the beauty of God’s word.”

5. Hannah’s Loss: By Courtney Reissig – Reissig says, “Hannah hoped in the God who would get this done in his time. And so should we. Hannah was able to look in the face of her precious boy as she walked away from him for the last time and know that God would win in the end and her loss was not in vain. The same is true for us, friends. The same is true for us.”
