Are We Convinced It’s An Issue?

I need to confess two things. First, I’m hesitant to write anything. I’m hesitant because I’m fearful of how I’ll be perceived. But that’s a “fear of man” issue that I need to work out with the Lord. Fear of people and their opinions about the good news about Jesus Christ is wrong. Rather I […]

Our New Song

With everything going on, I think it is safe to say that many of us are feeling tired from talking about COVID19 and Coronavirus. I think that a lot of our fatigue comes from the reality that we are all processing really bad news all the time. That isn’t anything new, but rather is just […]

ESV Bible with Creeds and Confessions Review

I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been looking forward to this edition of the ESV since I saw it on Crossway’s list of forthcoming editions. What makes the ESV Bible with creeds and confessions (BCC) so great is that that it includes 13 historic Christian creeds, definitions, confessions and catechisms at the back of the Bible. […]

Christianity and the Problem of Evil

Today’s Readings: Numbers 34-36; Psalm 59; 2 Corinthians 1-2 One of the most common objections that I hear to Christianity is that if God is truly sovereign (that is, in control of every detail of the universe), then how can He let evil come into the world? How could God, if He is good allow […]

It’s Not A Money Issue

Today’s reading: Numbers 32-33; Psalm 58; 1 Corinthians 16 Money and personal finances are a touchy subject. I remember when my wife, Kassy, and I were dating and we talked about money a lot. The reality is that we grew up in two different contexts (not radically different) where I managed money differently than she […]

Zombies? No, Resurrection.

Today’s Reading: Numbers 30-31; Psalm 57; 1 Corinthians 15:35-58 So yesterday and today, we have been working through 1 Corinthians 15. Paul lays out a pretty logical argument: Jesus is raised from the dead If you claim there is no resurrection, then Jesus wasn’t raised and you are dead in your sins still but you […]

What is in Trust?

Today’s Reading: Numbers 28-29; Psalm 56; 1 Corinthians 15:1-34 Trust can quickly become one of those biblish words. That is a word that the bible uses so often that it can quickly and subtly become meaningless to the reader. As Christians, we hear the question, “Do you trust in God?” often, hopefully. We frame the […]

All About the Numbers!

Today’s Reading: Numbers 26-27; Psalm 55; 1 Corinthians 14 Have you ever been reading through your bible and suddenly hit one of those large passages with all the numbers? Frequently, it seems like, in the early Old Testament, you see the people of God counting Israel. Each Tribe by their clans are counted and totaled […]
