May Justice Be Served

May Justice Be Served

Every believer is certain to find it difficult at times to engage someone in a meaningful way about the gospel. There is, after all, a wide and deep chasm that exists between the worldview of the Christian and the prevailing worldviews represented in contemporary culture. And this chasm is only getting bigger. It used to…

Feeling the Tension, Pt. 3

Feeling the Tension, Pt. 3

We’re all familiar with the scene. The single light shining down onto a cold, metal table in a dark and empty interrogation room. The light from the overhead lamp illuminates the face of a man. He is handcuffed, dressed in prisoner orange. His face is both bright and dark, the effects of the single light…

Feeling the Tension, Pt. 2

If you missed last week’s blog entry from me, I’d suggest you go back and read it because it serves as an introduction to the next few posts I’ll be giving focusing on the reality of living out the Christian life as a citizen of a kingdom that is not of this world. I haven’t…

Big Tent Revival

Big Tent Revival

I am amazed with the pictures and stories from the tent revivals of the 1950’s. One of the most famous is the Los Angeles Crusade that began in 1949. Billy Graham was the main preacher for this crusade which lasted for eight weeks. One of the thousands who trusted Jesus Christ as their Savior at…

Tyndale the Missionary

As the week drags on, I am greatly anticipating the arrival of Saturday, October 31st. I can’t think of a more important day than this Saturday. I am not being facetious either. This day is extremely important, even as important as the election, we can’t forget about Saturday! You know what I’m talk about right?…

Men of Action!

Men of Action!

As I survey our nation’s current state, I find myself wondering more and more whether Christ’s return is imminent. Such thinking is probably typical these days, but it can be a temptation to ruminate on things unprofitable. Jesus gave us a glimpse of His promised return to encourage watchfulness, not an anxious preoccupation. Our heart…

Without Hesitation

Without Hesitation

When Jesus, by the Sea of Galilee, called his first disciples to “follow him,” Scripture records very dramatic responses.   Look at when Jesus called Peter and Andrew. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him. (Matthew 4:19-20) Strolling a little…

“Odors” of the Word

“Odors” of the Word

The passage in James 1:22 brings about memories from a long time ago. “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” (James 1:22, KJV). Not just for its practical advice for living, but one of my earliest introductions to this verse. Around the age of 11, our family attended…

Going Public

Going Public

Christianity is public.  By any definition from our Bibles, to be a Christian is to take our faith public.  Believers are supposed to stand out to a watching world.  Perhaps you are beginning to feel real pressure to shrink back from making your profession public and to keep your faith close to the vest, private…
