Weekly Favorite Links (Feb 19-25, 2015)

One of the biggest blessings of committing to a local church is the opportunity for discipleship — put simply, a one-on-one mentorship between a younger individual with an older individual of the same gender. In other words, it’s two people who are committed to intentionally pursue Christ-likeness together. Not every church does this, so I’m really grateful that the church I currently attend and commit to emphasizes discipleship within our church. What I appreciate most about discipleship is having someone older and wiser modeling their faith, and demonstrating to me what that looks like in perhaps more mundane aspects of life.

In my own spiritual walk, I feel like God uses that time with my discipler to reveal a lot of my own sin issues so that I could confess and work through them. And what’s great is that I’m not working through them alone, but that I do have someone to walk with me — supporting, encouraging, and affirming me. Sometimes during our meetings, I feel totally exposed, weak and broken. But then afterwards, there is joy and peace. Moreover, there is freedom — freedom from shame and separation because the grace of God is sufficient to cover all sins.

With that said, I really hope that the links that I share every week would not just be a place where I share all my “favorites,” but that I could share some important, helpful resources too! That really is my prayer and hope for these kind of posts.
