Thoughts From The Torah

Several days into my ninety-day Bible plan, I realized I was reading slowly and thinking about the text, so I decided to disregard the schedule and take my time. That said, if you would like to follow more of my day-to-day thoughts, you can do so on Instagram. It has been twenty-one days, and I... Continue Reading →

Come Back, Church

For the last few days, my social media has been overrun with the little miss character. After a few weeks of enduring this little craze, it will likely be on to the next thing. The next pointless, no one will remember thing. Social media is a good tool for staying connected, but it also exposes... Continue Reading →

My Responsibility Before God

Social media can be a blessing and a distraction in life. We all know this to be true. So I won't be talking about our social media usage but how Bible teachers, pastors, and other ministers rightly use social media and how they can be snared by it. As a Bible teacher and blogger, I...

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 →

O Happy Day!

“Before I formed you in the innermost parts I knew you, And before you came out from the womb I set you apart; I have given you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5 LSB). "And it happened that when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled... Continue Reading →

Relational Theology

Have you ever heard someone say that most of their friends are really just acquaintances? Unfortunately, we tend to be loose with the definition of friend these days. The Bible says that Abraham was a friend of God. The father of our faith is the first person in Scripture called a prophet; more importantly, he... Continue Reading →

Resurrection Passages

 A few things caught my attention while reading the resurrection passages in ‘A Harmony of the Gospels in 30 Days’ on YouVersion. Reading all the Gospel accounts together by story sheds new light on the life and ministry of Jesus. For instance, look at how revelation comes; John 20:9 LSB "For as yet they did...

Jesus at the Center

Jesus said, "You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that bear witness about Me;1" So whether it's the Jewish roots, believing for signs and wonders, or even wanting to make sure all your doctrinal t's are crossed and i's dotted - the enemy wants you...

Walking in Grace

 I am continually amazed at the grace of God over me, a sinner. A few passages in Romans stuck out in my reading today and continued some conviction I have been feeling the last few days but more on that in a moment.  The Righteousness of God Through Faith "But now apart from the Law...

Are You Being Distracted?

The Hillsong Documentary, Julie Roy's latest attack on John MacArthur, The latest SBC kerfluffle, and crazy charismatic behavior all have one thing in common - distraction. The enemy uses all of these things to get believers' attention out of God's book and onto Facebook and into Twitter battles. There is a difference between Paul calling... Continue Reading →

The Cure for a Dysfunctional Church

Growing up, I heard lots of teaching on the gifts of the Spirit, and being Pentecostal/Charismatic; I saw lots of weird stuff under the guise of the move of the Spirit. As I was thinking about the extra emphasis on the gifts of the Spirit and the minimal focus on the fruit, the thought came... Continue Reading →

Grace, Mercy, and Celebration

Throughout Israel’s history, we see neglect and return. Israel neglects the commands of God, repents, and returns to the ways of God. At times we catch ourselves judging Israel and thinking, how could a people who saw such great miracles so quickly turn from God? But in reality, we are no different; we often neglect...

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 →

Keeping a Journal

Growing up, I always heard "one word from God can change your life." Today as I was reading my Bible, that phrase came to mind, and I began to think about it and different characters in the Bible. Moses saw a burning bush, and when he turned aside to see, the Lord spoke to him,... Continue Reading →

A Heart Strangely Warmed

"I felt my heart strangely warmed…I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for salvation; and an assurance was given me that he had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death."  Those were the words of John Wesley after hearing someone read Martin Luther's preface...
