How can we keep from canceling Christ?

How can we keep from canceling Christ?

I do not think we will be challenged to cancel or deny the deity of Christ. As in the example of Peter on the night of Jesus’s trial. But I do think the time is coming soon when we will be coerced to celebrate and approve of the LGBT perversion. According to Romans chapter 1, […]

Pop Pride

4 Points to Pop Pride

The last thing Christians should be is puffed up with pride. Below are four points to pop pride. Pride is damaging and is at the heart of what damned the devil himself. We would be wise to destroy pride before it destroys us (Prov. 16:18). 1. Group Connection Pride protects us from the penetrating eye […]

We're Listening... To Something.

We’re Listening… To Something.

We all listen to something.  We all listen to something. Or we all get our idea of what we should do, be, and care about from somewhere. Whether Cosmo Magazine, the Wishbone app, Ask.fm, whatever you watch on Netflix, or whatever is said on Snapchat through BuzzFeed. Should we listen to Taylor Swift, Jimmy Fallon, […]

What we do matters.

What we do matters. And that’s good news.

Yesterday I posted a few thoughts about Matthew 16:27 which says “the Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will repay each person according to what he has done.” For a lot of people that may seem very heavy and discouraging. For me, […]

What we do matters.

The Bible teaches that what we do matters.

The Bible teaches that what we do matters. “For the Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will repay each person according to what he has done” (Matthew 16:27). “The Son of Man is going to come.” That’s going to happen. Just as […]

persecution

How is being hated by the world motivating?

“You will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved” (Matthew 10:22). Wow. What an encouraging word. Not! You will be hated by a ton of people. But, if you can take it long enough, if you endure until you die… Well… Well, then […]

The End is Near

The End is Near

The end is near. That is the case whether or not it is our individual end or the end of all things. Whichever, the reality is, time is precious and it is fleeting. That is one of the reasons why it is precious. We’re so quick to recall that money is precious, and so it […]

Stranger

Strangers

“Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul” (1 Peter 2:11).   What is the greatest problem I’ve had being a missionary? It hasn’t been: The language – even though we have learned one National language and one tribal language and […]

singleness

Sometimes life gives you a gift that you want to lose but you have to use.

Do you view singleness as a gift? Sometimes we receive gifts that we don’t want to use, don’t know how to use, or don’t even want to possess. I am afraid many of us feel this way about singleness. We don’t know what to do with it, we don’t know why we’re stuck with it, […]

In the shelter of the Most High

Sunday morning in church we were looking at Luke chapter one and my attention was drawn to verse 35.  The angel said to Mary, “the power of the Most High will overshadow you.”1 This phrase brings us to Psalm 91 verse 1: “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in […]
