The Lord will provide.

August 7, 2014. “When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his…

Be silent before God.

July 19, 2014. “Be silent, all flesh, before the Lord, for he has roused himself from his holy dwelling.” (Zechariah 2:13) Passages like this one almost give me chills when I read them. Sometimes I think that American Christianity has gotten so big and flashy that we forget our relationship to the Lord God Almighty,…

How important is the resurrection?

July 14, 2014. As we journey further into the 21st century, it seems that more and more people of the religious world are rejecting the literal resurrection of Christ. I would expect this from non-believing skeptics, but not from Christians. I don’t think there are a large number of those who wear the name of…

Jesus is Lord.

July 13, 2014. “Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the…

Repentance and baptism.

June 16, 2014. I received word this morning that one of the boys we were studying with in Nicaragua decided to get baptized into Christ! His good friend, who was studying with us too, is also considering making the decision to follow Christ. This was wonderful news. It’s great to actually see the fruit of…

Just a little talk with Jesus.

May 25, 2014. O Lord, my God, may you be glorified from all the earth. Let every knee bow, let every mouth confess and let all praise be given to the Almighty. O Lord, you are God and not man. Your ways are above our ways, your thoughts above our thoughts. Your steadfast love never…

Are we Christians?

May 11, 2014. Today we ask a hard question. It’s a question that I don’t like to ask, but one that I believe is necessary. Before we continue on, just know that today’s post is not for the casual reader who does not like conflict or questions that challenge his or her faith. If this…

“Choose ye this day.”

May 1, 2014. My sister asked me recently what my favorite verse was, and I chose two because I couldn’t choose. However, since I have written multiple times about Ecclesiastes and the fact that we just got done with a discussion on Ephesians with different roles that we play, I decided to write about this…

Traditions.

April 25, 2014. Are traditions good? Are they bad? I have heard people be vehemently against traditions and others be dead set on them. Today I would like to take a closer look at traditions, their pros and cons, and let you decide what is biblically taught about them. I am a proponent that many…

Easter.

April 20, 2014. Today is the day that a majority of Christians focus on the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, as he died and rose the perfect sacrifice for our sins. It is always fitting to remember our Lord and what he did on the cross for us. I don’t think we will every…

Pressing on.

April 14, 2014. I am really starting to feel the pressure of the end of the semester today. I have many things to do before tomorrow and the rest of the week. It is times like these that I have to buckle down and get to business. It’s hard, but I know it must be…

An introduction to God.

April 1, 2014. “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,“ and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he.Before me no god was formed,nor shall there be any after me. I, I am the Lord, and besides me there is no savior. I declared…
