The Importance of Doing

June 25, 2015

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.” (Matt. 7:21) One of the greatest challenges for Christians is doing. We have no problem with believing. We talk a lot about what we believe. We argue about […]

On the Public Reading of Scripture

June 11, 2015

“Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching.” (1 Tim. 4:13) The New Testament does not provide us with a clear picture of what an early Christian worship service looked like. We cannot go to one chapter or one book to find a full description of worship. Instead, […]

Love, Trust, & Community

April 17, 2015

1 Corinthians 13 is one of the more well-known chapters within the Bible. It is read at weddings. It is quoted by religious and non-religious people. It is a meditation on love. We are called to love because God first loved us (1 John 4:19). The two greatest commands are to love God and love […]

The Power of Forgiveness I was moved by a powerful story of forgiveness that I found on Donald Miller’s Storyline blog.

It is a principle central to the gospel itself – the very […]

Barriers to Conversation

David Lipscomb on the Qualifications of Elders

March 11, 2013

The Holy Spirit has described the qualifications of elders in the first letter to Timothy and in that to Titus. None are perfect in their character. So none will have in perfection these qualifications laid down – that is, all will possess them in a human way. When the Holy Spirit requires qualifications, he specifies them as they […]

A Prayer by George MacDonald

March 8, 2013

Thy will be done. I yield up everything. The hairs I made not, thou art numbering. Thou art my life – I the brook, thou the spring. Because thine eyes are open, I can see; Because thou art thyself, tis therefore I am me.

Follow People Who Make You Better There are certain people I enjoy following on social media. These individuals often post and share things that encourage and inspire me to be a better Christian. Two of these individuals are Bob Goff and Jeff Jenkins. Bob Goff may be the most encouraging and inspiring person on the […]

Keys to Writing a Good Sermon

March 6, 2013

There is an art to preaching. The preacher has the task of taking an ancient text and creating a message that is relevant to a modern audience. This is not an easy thing to do. It is not good enough to stand in front of the people of God, read a passage, and then proclaim […]

Here are some links, resources, stories, etc. that I have found helpful. A Preacher Goes to Sunday School Check out this great post from my friend Shane Alexander entitled Teaching Children at Church. It is an interesting read about a minister who decides to give up his regular adult Bible class and teach the younger […]
