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

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[…]

How Are Your Kids Being Discipled?

Have you ever had that one specific shirt that just seems to attract wrinkles? You have tried basically everything to keep it from happening but it seems to be a hopeless endeavor. You have tried drying it by itself, hang-drying it, and you certainly never fold it. Yet somehow, every[…]

The Glory of God

1 Chronicles 16:28-29 – “Ascribe to the Lord, O families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength, ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name. Bring an offering and come before him; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.” The first question asked in the[…]

Like a Child

Matthew 18:1-4 – “At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, ‘Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you[…]
