Blessed Assurance

John 6:36, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever[…]

Let Your Goal Be Faithfulness

1 Corinthians 4:1-2 – “This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful.” If you have ever been on a mission trip that included some sort of work project, you’ve[…]

Do You Care?

Matthew 9:36 – “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” As Jesus traveled through towns and villages during his three-year ministry, people followed him around for numerous reasons. Other times they followed Jesus for the spectacle[…]

Real Men

1 Corinthians 16:13 – “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.” At the end of the book of 1 Corinthians, Paul is sending some final greetings to his recipients. Within these final greetings is a statement that is simple, yet easily confused in our day[…]

Step Out in Expectation

Joshua 3:14-17 – “So when the people set out from their tents to pass over the Jordan with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, and as soon as those bearing the ark had come as far as the Jordan, and the feet of the priests[…]

Gospel Treason?

In recent days I have been reading through a book titled, Gospel Treason: Betraying the Gospel with Hidden Idols, and it brought to my attention a problem that I believe we are facing in significant ways in the church, and the world today. Specifically, the idea that we have the[…]

True Followers of Jesus

Hebrews 2:1-4 – “Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a[…]

Sharing the Gospel

Philemon 6 – “I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ.” Who was the last non-believer that you personally shared the gospel with?  And when I say “shared the gospel[…]

Work Ethic Matters!

“Cursed is he who does the work of the Lord with slackness…” (Jeremiah 48:10). Breathe a sigh of relief, because this is a truth that only applies to pastors and missionaries, right? Sure, go ahead and be lazy in everything you do and you’ll be fine. Let me know how[…]

True Worship

John 4:23-24 – “You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to[…]

Technology is Never Neutral

Technology is never neutral. Even a technology as simple as a shovel does two things. It makes digging easier, but it also puts blisters and callouses on the hands. When we regularly use more complex technology such as computers, and smart phones, the unintended impact on us is much more[…]

Theology that Travels with You

Do you ever have a week where you are really feeling drawn to do something but just feel like fighting it? It doesn’t have to be a bad thing, in fact it can be a very good thing… Let’s just say for example, that you have been feeling drawn towards[…]

Merciful Discipline

Amos 4:10-13 – “’I sent among you a pestilence after the manner of Egypt; I killed your young men with the sword, and carried away your horses, and I made the stench of your camp go up into your nostrils; yet you did not return to me,’ declares the Lord. ‘I overthrew some of[…]

False Comfort

Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon. Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat their produce. Take wives and have sons and daughters; take wives for your sons, and give[…]

Tell Others!

1 Corinthians 15:1-5 – “Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to[…]
