Scatterbrained Prayer

How many times have you started to pray and become distracted? You begin praying, and all of a sudden, a grocery list begins forming in your head, or you suddenly remember you forgot something three weeks ago. Over the last several years, a common prayer strategy has been to pray on your way to work.... Continue Reading →

Biblical Unity

Much has been said, and rightly so concerning unity in the Church. But what does unity look like? Is it really about setting doctrine aside and accepting professions of faith at face value when there is no fruit behind the confession? Years ago, Catholics and Evangelicals Together came on the scene declaring we’re all together.... Continue Reading →

Walking with Jesus

This morning my New Testament reading ended in an odd spot at Mark 14:26, so I kept reading and finished the gospel. I sat and pondered why the reading plan would stop at such a weird place but knew it was due to the number of verses in the New Testament being split over four... Continue Reading →

What it Means to be Pro-Life

Today is the 49th annual March for Life. This event for life has become increasingly political over the last several years. But unfortunately, with the hijacking of the term pro-life in recent years, much of the movement has given way to the industry. I am unashamedly pro-life, but I refuse to be holistically pro-life. Why?... Continue Reading →

Controversial, Courageous, and Correct

John MacArthur. That name makes people angry; it causes certain Christians to lose their temper, but why? Why is John MacArthur the most controversial figure in the Church today, and why would I follow such a man? Let's start with that last part, I follow him because he has faithfully served one church for over... 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 →

Thoughts on Heaven

They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever. - Revelation 22:4-5 ESV Today I finished my study in the book of Revelation, and I was left...

Reverencing God

This morning I read the story of Gideon asking God for a sign in Judges 6:36-40 ESV "Then Gideon said to God, “If you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said, 37 behold, I am laying a fleece of wool on the threshing floor. If there is dew on the fleece alone, and it... Continue Reading →

Porn Star Pastor’s Wife?

I read an article the other day and sat stunned seeing the most anti-biblical theology celebrated by pastors that I’ve seen in a while. Sure, the Church in question is a “progressive Christian” church, but it didn’t make the article’s content any less jarring. The pastor’s wife is a practicing porn star. In the article,...

Defending The Faith

We cannot defend the truth unless we know it first. Acts 17:11 ESV "Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so." 2 Peter 2:1-3 ESV "But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be...

Just Passing Through

Last night, as I was lying in bed not thinking of anything in particular that I was aware of, these lines came to me; “My life is not my own and this world is not my home. Forsake things unknown there, we live for His glory alone here.” The thought made an impression on me, so... Continue Reading →

Tethered to Truth

Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you exhorting that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints. Jude 1:3 LSB Every generation feels the need to reinvent Christianity, to make it relevant,... Continue Reading →

Is The Gospel Enough?

Is the gospel enough? That may seem like a ridiculous question but think about it. Do you believe the gospel is enough? Does the church you attend believe the gospel is enough? Is the gospel even presented in your church? One day I was driving home from a church I had been attending for about... Continue Reading →

Love Not The World

Do not love the world or the things in the world. Variations of this command appear throughout the New Testament. It is a straightforward command. Yet, as in days past, it is time to issue a call to holiness and Christlikeness in our day. Over the past several years, you have most likely heard the... Continue Reading →

We Have (Not) Arrived

The motto of the Protestant Reformation was “Semper Reformanda,” reformed and always reforming. They didn’t say we had arrived. There is always a need to continue learning and growing. The change of yesterday leads to the change of today. The time of the Reformation taught men the necessity of the Scripture. Martin Luther saw a... Continue Reading →
