Last week, I attended a conference here in Louisville that centered around the importance of missions overseas, and the Gospel message being sent out in all directions. Since I believe God has called me to serve in the local church here in America, I must confess that oftentimes I downplay the importance of overseas missions…Keep reading
Have you ever been reading the psalms, and come across that word off to the side of the margins (typically italicized too) “selah?” Have you ever wondered what it meant and why it is there? If you’re like me, you also may have wondered, “am I supposed to read that word, even? I’m confused.” While…Keep reading
Christmas time is a special season, drawing out the nostalgia of our childhood. The anticipation of Christmas day, the presents that await, the beauty of lights throughout our neighborhoods and cities, and tasty treats that are shared between friends and family. Moreover, the beauty of Christmas draws us back to our Savior, and His work…Keep reading
It was a chilly January evening in 2019 when my wife and I were first introduced to the leadership of North Bullitt Christian Church. It was a whirlwind of a weekend with travel and meeting new faces. The Ledford family opened their home to host us, along with other church leaders, including all of the…Keep reading
I was listening to sermons and podcasts for answers to the life that I desired. Yet, very rarely did I pick up the Bible. I would listen to Mark Driscoll, Matt Chandler, John MacArthur, etc… but I rarely opened the Word to seek the answers I was after. I constantly relied on man’s interpretation. Now,…Keep reading

“not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” – Hebrews 10:25 Hebrews 10:25 is probably the most common verse used in defense of the “why” when it comes to regularly attending church services. That is, if one cares about…Keep reading
In my Sunday school class, I have been walking us through Ecclesiastes. If you know anything about this book, you will know that it is a somber, gloomy book. At least, on the surface level it is (but that is a post for another day). In the midst of Solomon’s vexations on the foolishness of…Keep reading
Over the past two weeks, we have heard from the pulpit that God knows us. We are known by God. Not just on a surface level, first name basis, but rather deeply and intimately known. But, I desire to flip that the other way onto us. Do we know God as He knows us? Is…Keep reading
