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 →

DEVOTION: Give it to God

Just give it to God. How often have we said that to ourselves or had someone say it to us? When we’re stressed, things are piling up, or we don’t know what to do in a situation, we know the answer is to give it to God. So many of us are quick to pray;... 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 →

Good News of Great Joy

The most wonderful time of year has begun! I know many are not seeing the Christmas season as wonderful as they did a few years ago. A lot has changed, and things will continue to change, but the Christmas season gives us a chance to reset our focus. One of my favorite parts of the... 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... Continue Reading →

Observations on Healing and Miracles in the Book of Acts

In the last two weeks, I have read the book of Acts paying careful attention to instances of healing and miracles, specifically looking at who performed them. I will present all the verses on healing and miracles in this post and then offer my observations and thoughts. THE TEXTS “And awe came upon every soul,... Continue Reading →

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, behold, I am laying a fleece of wool on the threshing floor. If there is dew on the fleece alone, and... 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 →

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 →

A Must Read Gospel Trilogy

If you don’t know the truth, you will be deceived by a lie. Lies always have varying degrees of truth in them; if they didn’t, we wouldn’t be so quick to fall for them. One of the biggest lies in the Church today is the “gospel issue” message. Every cultural issue has suddenly become a... Continue Reading →

When Discernment Hurts

What comes to mind when you think of the word discernment? Is it angry basement bloggers? Someone with an ax to grind? Or is it, as one minister recently said, "someone who doesn't have the Holy Spirit but a relationship with the Bible, those people lead people to Hell." That little snippet right there shows...

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 →

Nevertheless (Revelation 2)

If God wrote you a letter, what do you think He would say? Would He thank you for serving in kids church or for helping as a youth group sponsor? Would He commend you for opening your home for a weekly small group? After He listed your accomplishments and obedience, would it be followed by... Continue Reading →

Humbly Denouncing Experience

This past Sunday, I experienced something I’ve never seen in twenty-five years of going to church. I’ve read about it, I’ve heard stories about it but, I have never experienced it. You may have heard the stories of men running on the backs of pews, all-night Holy Ghost prayer meetings where a church momma prayed... Continue Reading →
