Knowing God

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…

Why 1 Peter?

Beginning Sunday, September 19, we will launch an eleven week sermon series in the book of 1 Peter. Peter is an often neglected book of the New Testament, unfortunately overshadowed by Paul’s writings, the excitement of the Gospels, and the mystery of Revelation. However, this book is profitable, as is all of Scripture, for our…

Worn Out

Usually, when one of our boys comes to me and tells me they need a new one of something. Whether they lost it, or wore it out, I can’t help but sigh and think about the money and time it will take to replace whatever they need.  Today’s “I wore it out” had a very…

How to Study the Bible? 

The Word of God, as the psalmist proclaims, “is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” We speak often of the Bible as the “Truth,” His Word as being “God-breathed,” and “living and active.” Christians revere the Word of God, and understand it’s importance in instructing in all truth.

God and His Holiness

I think, in our current time, we have lost or nearly forgotten what the word “holy” really means. We may have an idea of it, but that idea is only a candlelight compared to the blazing inferno that it truly is. The word carried monumental weight in the ancient world, and during the Biblical eras.…

Why Gentle and Lowly?

In November 2020, I found myself at a local pastor’s fellowship, where I was given Gentle and Lowly written by Dane Ortlund. The book piqued my interest, not primarily because of the title, but rather, because of the author’s last name. Dane is the son of Ray Ortlund. Ray is a pastor and author that…

Types and Shadows

Each Wednesday night, in my Old Testament class, I pose the question, “why should we read the Old Testament today?” Weighing in at over half of the Bible, there must be a purpose behind it? Now, there are many reasons why we today may open up to read it, but the one I want to…
