Seeking Beauty

September 4, 2014

Goodness, truth, and beauty all come from God. He is the source of all three. Out of these three subjects, beauty is the most neglected. It has been ignored by many Christians and it has often been distorted by the world. Beauty is important. It attracts. We are drawn to what is beautiful. It is […]

Where Do We Go When We Die

August 26, 2014

Where do we go when we die? This is a question we are intrigued by. Even people who are not religious are interested in this question. In 2010 Clint Eastwood directed a movie entitled Hereafter. The film was about the afterlife but the focus was more on psychic powers rather than religion. The question of […]

The Beauty of the Gospel

June 17, 2014

We are accustom to reading the Bible as truth, which it is, but if truth is the only thing we see then we are missing much of what the Bible has to offer. The Bible is also full of beauty. It reflects the glory we find in Jesus. To miss the beauty of Scripture is […]

Esau’s Doom

June 2, 2014

Popular commentaries on the Bible are not always the most fun things to read.

O Lord, our Sovereign,     how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.     Out of the mouths of babes and infants you have founded a bulwark because of your foes,     to silence the enemy and the avenger. When I look at your heavens, the […]

Into the Great Unknown

April 8, 2014

Fear is debilitating. Fear holds us back and keeps us from the work of God. Fear squashes faith. Throughout Scripture God continually tells his people, “Do not fear.” God understands what fear can do to human beings and he wants his people to live by faith rather than fear. One of our greatest fears is […]

Mending the Cracks

March 4, 2014

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will […]

And now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and the rules that I am teaching you, and do them, that you may live, and go in and take possession of the land that the Lord, the God of your fathers, is giving you. You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor […]

Be kind to your little children, Lord: that is what we ask of you as their Tutor, you the Father, Israel’s Guide; Son, yes, but Father as well. Grant that by doing what you have told us to do, we may achieve a faithful likeness to the Image and, as far as is possible for […]
