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 →

Christ, the Solid Rock

My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus' blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name. On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand, All other ground is sinking sand. The words of the hymn by Edward Mote began playing in... Continue Reading →

Living in The Gospel

1 Corinthians 1:18 NKJV "for the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." Paul goes on to say in chapter two, verse two, "for I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.... 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 →
