The Bible in 90 Days

Do you remember all the memory verses from your childhood? Probably not. I grew up hearing topical messages and listening to Charismatic preachers, and while I know a decent amount of Bible stories, I have realized in the last year that I do not know the whole Bible as well as I would like to....

Growing in the Lord

A few days ago, my Facebook memories from three and four years ago had quotes from Pastor Rod Parsley of World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio, and the host of Breakthrough Television. Pastor Rod, or PRP as he is often tagged, is who God used to begin my journey with the Lord. This was one... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and...

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 →

There are many different kinds of love; love between spouses, love for your friends, casual care about co-workers, and the general hope for the welfare of strangers. Some say care for strangers isn't technically love,... 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 →

The Calling of a Christian

The book of Ephesians is a treasure trove of doctrine and practicality that every Christian should read several times a year. In it, Paul prays two prayers for the church. The first deals with the calling of a Christian, and the second deals with our source of strength. In today's post, we will look at... Continue Reading →

Growth: The Life of a Christian

Last week we looked at Colossians 1:3-8 and came to a place of understanding how grace and truth coincide in the Christian life. Today we will look at how that grace and truth bring about growth in our lives. Colossians 1:9-14 ESV "And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you,... 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 →
