Thanksgiving and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb

I love Thanksgiving. It is a day marked by an attitude which should permeate us every day! We are so entitled, we feel as if we are owed everything, and often times that carries over even into our relationship with God. Thanksgiving, however, reminds us that we are far more than just a product of … Continue reading Thanksgiving and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb

Soli Deo Gloria: Why 501 Years later, the Reformation still Matters.

501 Years ago today, an Augustinian monk Martin Luther, nailed his famous 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Hoping to simply debate the matters which he addressed, little did Luther know that God was providentially moving to bring His church out darkness and back into the light (post tenebras … Continue reading Soli Deo Gloria: Why 501 Years later, the Reformation still Matters.

Three Disciplines for Spiritual Formation

An essential part of any life is growth. Where growth is absent, death is abundant, and it is no different for the Christian life.

The Gospel in Two-Words…

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires … Continue reading The Gospel in Two-Words…

The Path to Rejoicing

I was reading in Luke Chapter 15 today, and was studying the parable of The Lost Son. This parable hits very close to home for me and is one of my favorite parables in the scriptures. I know the Bible is the absolute, complete and infallible Word of God. It cannot be changed and must … Continue reading The Path to Rejoicing
