Dead or Alive

“For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.”  (Romans 6:10-11, ESV) How should we deal with sin in our lives? Or perhaps even more to the point,... Continue Reading →

Shedding Your Blood

"In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood"  (Hebrews 12:4, ESV). If there is one verse in the Bible that haunts me, one verse that can keep me awake at night, Hebrews 12:4 is that verse. Whether walking in my legalist phase, living in the “freedom of...

The Devil You Know

“When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and finding none it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when it comes, it finds the house swept and put in order. Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil... Continue Reading →

Getting in the Way Part Three

“If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask, and God will give him life—to those who commit sins that do not lead to death. There is sin that leads to death; I do not say that one should pray for that.” (1 John 5:16, ESV)

I regret not going on to seminary when I finished my Bachelor’s degree. I regret many poor financial decisions that I made early... Continue Reading →

There was a restlessness in the crowd. In-between the awkward taunts and jeers the only sounds that could be heard were the labored attempts of the three men to draw a breath. The weight of their bodies pulling them down forced the air from their lungs as they hung by their arms. They were, in... Continue Reading →

Afraid

“And he said, ‘I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself’”  (Genesis 3:10, ESV). They say that when Jonathan Edwards preached his famous sermon, Sinners In The Hands of an Angry God, people sat clinging to their seats with white-knuckled grip for fear... Continue Reading →

Love of the World

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world”... Continue Reading →

The Love of Christ Controls Us!

“For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised” ‭‭(2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:14-15‬ ‭ESV). Tuesday we discussed... Continue Reading →
