New Sermon – I AM

April 6, 2017

5 Comments

What’s in a name?  If your name is “I AM”, a lot!  God’s name holds profound meaning!  Unlike American names, His name is representative of who He is and what He is like.  We in the West don’t think like that as the meanings behind our names have mostly faded into obscurity, but we should […]

January 23, 2014

I was reading this passage the other day and it struck me how very seldom (if ever) we hear passages like this discussed in the modern evangelical world.  While I underlined a few key points that are usually missing from modern preaching, I will not offer much commentary on this other than to point out that Scripture […]

I had never seen this video before watching it at another blog earlier today (HT Defending Contending).  This 20 minute video covers a lot of ground in regards to Scripture and culture thanks to the concise wording, sound doctrine and uncompromising boldness of Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones.  I have no doubt it will sound offensive […]

The word “justified” is a legal term, and it means to be made right in the eyes of the court, all fines paid, with no balance due.  Watch this short video that helps explain the justification Jesus accomplished on the Cross.  After all, if Christianity is simply about living up to our potential while living […]

Theology is Only for Pastors…Right?

June 26, 2013

3 Comments

It seems this is the belief that many modern professing Christians hold.  That Theology, the study and understanding of God, is for the brainiacs and the professionals, not the regular everyday Christian (or even the Sunday school teachers and deacons).  May I suggest that this view is why so many Christians have that “something is wrong” […]

In Luke 24, Jesus directed His people to spread the message of  “repentance and the forgiveness of sins” in his name.  Recently, we looked at what the word “repent” actually means, but what does true repentance look like when lived out in the life of a believer?  To answer this question, I encourage you to visit Vassal […]

3 Comments

Hope and faith are two different things.  Hope is the eager desire for something to happen, whereas faith is the confidence that it will.  Do you hope that Jesus will claim you as His own on that Day?  Or do you have the confidence that He already has claimed you as His own?   A person […]

From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.  And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, “Far be it from you, Lord! This […]
