Living Like Jesus

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His... Continue Reading →

Correction And Direction

My first flight was From DFW to London, then London to South Africa. I remember looking out the window each time we would begin flying lower as we got closer to landing. Seeing land far away and getting closer and closer is an incredible thing to see. Life is like that at times, we tend... Continue Reading →

A Heart Strangely Warmed

"I felt my heart strangely warmed…I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for salvation; and an assurance was given me that he had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death."  Those were the words of John Wesley after hearing someone read Martin Luther's preface...

Growing With The Gospel

I started reading a tome on Puritan theology at the beginning of the year. It has been an immense blessing so far, but it has also caused a lot of heartache. The Puritans focused solely on Christ and His gospel, even regarding discipleship. Over the last couple of years, I have realized just how absent... Continue Reading →

The Trial And The Blessing

Much has been said and even speculated about the book of Job. Some Christians sweep the complexities under the rug with statements like, “Job is the question, and Jesus is the answer.” Others who are bothered by the sovereignty of God point to Job, saying, “the thing I feared the most has come upon me,”...

Following the Example of Others

Yesterday I posted my 2022 reading plan, which consisted of sermons by and books about Charles Spurgeon and reading two volumes about the Puritans, from whom Spurgeon gleaned much. If you follow me on social media, you may wonder why I am so obsessed with Spurgeon or if I idolize the guy. I am quite... Continue Reading →

The Word is our Defense

"How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you." These are the words of Psalm 119:9-11. They give... Continue Reading →

When it’s Difficult

Do you ever wake up, lay there and think I don't know what to pray? You know situations you need to pray about and people you need to pray for, but words aren't coming to mind? There are a few basics in our Christian walks like prayer, Bible reading, and Bible study; however, we can... Continue Reading →

Sin, Salvation, and Sanctification

I want to know Jesus better, and I want to obey Him more consistently; this is the desire of the Christian. We all want to grow closer to the Lord, and we are all at varying levels in our relationship with Him. Each of us has different things that trip us up. What is tempting... Continue Reading →

How’s Your Relationship?

A relationship with Jesus is common vernacular in the church today. It is such a common phrase you probably do not give much thought to it. But have you ever stopped to ponder the meaning of the phrase? We all know the implication behind the phrase is salvation. After that, it is about what living... Continue Reading →

Submitting to Jesus as Lord

Matthew 7:21-23 NKJV ““Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders... Continue Reading →

Know The Truth

John 14:6 NKJV "Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."" John 17:17 NKJV "Sanctify them by your truth. Your word is truth." In a day when truth is subjective, even in the church, we must personally turn back to our... Continue Reading →

Walking with Jesus

It’s a funny thing being a Christian. You get saved, and you start this journey of living like Jesus. The Bible calls this being a disciple, but it seems as time goes on, we tend to forget Jesus. I know we would say that’s not true, but if we’re honest at one time or another,... Continue Reading →

The Person of the Word

One of the most amazing Bible passages to me is John 1:1-5, 14. The Wuest Expanded Translation puts things into a new perspective. “In the beginning the Word was existing. And the Word was in fellowship with God the Father. And the Word as to his existence was absolute deity. This Word was in the... Continue Reading →
