Praise the Lord!! These are sites I love to follow as time permits. It’s too bad that WordPress only lets you follow 50 before losing the earliest ones with their widget, but I figured this would be the best way to make sure great Blogs get recognized. I will be adding the sites that I “Follow” in this list as I prefer a regular Page to a widget anyway. By the way, these links have been arranged in alphabetical order. Some I follow in my reader and some I cruise to when I feel led too! YOU WILL be blessed when checking them out if you haven’t already.
We must remember what the Holy Word teaches us about our individual gifts and just exactly what constitutes and makes up the TRUE Church, the Bride of Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:4-9, “For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal?”
“Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one? I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor. For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.”
What the Holy Spirit is telling us today is this, “Who then are Catholics, and who are Protestants and Evangelicals, what difference the denomination (Christian) for God gives the increase!” The teaching of Body Ministry was predominately a religious fad back in the ’70s and early ’80s and it’s sad, because that teaching is spiritual and explains the reason for our different gifts and abilities; our different ways of going about loving and doing good works in the name of Christ Jesus! I for one, acknowledge this diversity by following these blogs and I count each writer, a Brother and Sister in the Lord, ministers doing the service of our Lord for the edification and building up of one another. See and meditate on Ephesians 4:11-16.
Just a short aside here; I try to get back to every site to visit and to comment as I truly do “try” and follow all these blogs. Sometimes health and time get in the way and as the list grows, it takes longer to get to every one. As far as I know these are all active sites, but you need to remember that in WordPress, a site may stay “active” even when no new posts have been added for a time. I have found some that have great articles, but as of my most recent review (06/2019) some have not added any new posts for a while. I will not delete them just because there are no new posts, for the articles there can still be inspirational. I have found something new with a couple of sites, they are “protected” and have to apply to them. Those I have deleted only due to lack of convenience for readers. If you find some that are no longer loading that I have missed, you can drop me a comment and I will check it out. God bless all in your service to our King and Redeemer!
Also, this is not just a list of sites that inspire me, but since I am a strong believer in intercessory prayer, this list offers me an opportunity to pray for the ministries that each of these blogs represent. God Bless each and everyone as you continue in your service (ministry) to the Lord and to all of those that come your way! — Pastor Roland
