Walking in the Word

Have you ever started putting a shelving unit together, looked at the pictures in the instructions, said to yourself, simple enough, and then proceeded to toss the instructions aside? Then, twenty minutes later, you're looking for them because you have too many screws or that part doesn't connect to where "it's supposed to?" We wouldn't... Continue Reading →

My Favorite Five

I know you probably think there is no way I can pick only five Bible translations, but even though I have several, I have found I hover around the same five. So today, I figured I'd do a fun post (fun for me anyway and hopefully of benefit to you) and tell you why my... Continue Reading →

BE! ROOTED

Let there be is a phrase repeated in Genesis chapter one as God created all that the world contains. Colossians 2:6-7 tells us to be rooted in Christ, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you...

Treasuring The Torah

2 Timothy 3:16-17 TLV “All Scripture is [God-breathed]1 and useful for teaching, for reproof, for restoration, and for training in righteousness, 17 so that the person belonging to God may be capable, fully equipped for every good deed.” These are the two quintessential verses for the doctrine of the inspiration of Scripture. They are the... Continue Reading →

The Promise

"I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel." (Genesis 3:15 ESV). "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall... 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,”...

My Prayer for the Charismatic Movement

Yesterday I saw an ad on Facebook for an online discussion about if the prophetic is still for today. It had several well-known leaders in the prophetic movement listed to speak. I thought to myself; you're missing the point; charismatics aren't questioning if prophecy is for today; they're asking about the accuracy and legitimacy of... Continue Reading →

The Cultural Component of Bible Study

As Christians, we understand the importance of Bible reading and study. But inevitably, there will always be something that trips us up primarily because we don't understand the context of what is being said or happening in a story. We've all been there; we grab a commentary, look up a word, or search the internet... Continue Reading →

Jesus is…

“Did God actually say?” That is the question that brought the fall of man, and it is the same question that causes us to doubt the Word of God today. But as much as the enemy causes people to question what the Bible says, a little while after his initial question, God told him that... Continue Reading →

A Realization About My Approach to Scripture

“The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord...

Final Thoughts on 1 Corinthians 1-5

Today was my last day in 1 Corinthians 1-5. In June, I will be reading chapters 6-11 every day, writing down my thoughts, insights, and questions in my journal and consulting commentaries and my CSB He Reads Truth Bible along the way. I do my first read-through in the NKJV MacArthur Study Bible, and the rest of the... Continue Reading →

Understanding Spiritual Words (1 Corinthians 2:12-16)

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the depths graciously given to us by God,13 of which depths we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual depths with spiritual...

Psalm 1

Psalms is a book of songs, prayers, struggle, and encouragement that deals with just about any area of life you can think about. I find myself reading the Psalms when I don't know what to read. I read the Psalms when I'm discouraged and need hope, when I'm overwhelmed with emotion, and overwhelmed by the... Continue Reading →

Devotion: Portion and Promise

"The LORD is my portion; I promise to keep your words." Psalm 119:57 ESV "In Him every need is met, whether in life or in death. With God as your portion you are rich indeed, for He will supply your need, comfrot your heart, relieve your grief, guide your steps, walk with you in a... Continue Reading →

Devotion: God is God

"The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;" - Psalm 19:7 NKJV. The law of the Lord is perfect, and the testimony of the Lord is sure. The Bible begins with the words, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." No explanation is...
