You shall have no other gods before me
Jesus is a center of our faith.
Believing the Nature and Authority of God’s Word
Stillborn under Tyranny, Reborn under Liberty, and Crafted for Sanctity
What is its power and its saving purpose?
The moral law and how it still applies
What was the proper way to approach the temple of God?
Why is it that the man is unimpressed with God’s gifts?
What does it mean to seek peace in the church?
Why do we complain that wicked are not being punished as they should be, but are quick to exonerate ourselves?
Our speech, how does it affect us and everything else in our lives?
Apostle Paul and his analogy of The Armor of the King. Where is coming from and where is he going with it?
Seeing Jesus through the Ninth Commandment of the God’s Law.
How can God’s law be a love, joy, and a delight to us? How can it help us guide others to Jesus?
Epistle to Colossians is an epistle primarily for gentiles, what are we to learn from it?
Sometimes the big picture is harder to understand.
Jesus paid it all! Full satisfaction to God’s justice has been accomplished.
Our understanding of Christianity is that God is distinct from his creatures. This means that man is not God and God is not man. So, if this is true then how can we say that we are sons of God while Christ is the only begotten Son of God? If we are sons of God […]
We find ourselves in the year 2013. This is 2,013 years after Christ has entered into history. That timeframe is definitely more than one lifespan. How can work that was done 2,013 years ago still have an effect today? Why would we want to have our hope grounded in work that happened so long ago? […]
There are many names that God uses to describe Himself. These names certainly put us, and his people through the ages in awe of Him. Yet, when the second person of the trinity take on the flesh his name is to be Jesus. Why Jesus? What does this name communicate? How does this name show […]
If you have ever gone through a tough time sometimes the providence of God is not that encouraging. Why is it offensive when people say, “Well, God works all things for your good?” I mean this is what Scripture says. So, why do we not like to hear that promise? What is lacking in only […]
It is always something that is a bit of a challenge to encourage someone who experiences hardship in this life. There are times when we have done things that are absolutely foolish and we are experiencing the consequences of our actions, choices, or sins. However, there are other times when a person may have done […]
Have you ever wondered why the disciples witness Christ with Moses and Elijah? Why was Christ shining in this glory prior to the cross? Why does the Father say, “This is My Son; my Chosen One, listen to Him?” Why does the Lord give this vision of these men from history? Why not just get […]
Ironically one of the most contentious and yet important things in the Christian life is the discussion regarding faith. All Christians see faith as being important, but how do we receive this faith? Or is this faith a gift in the sense that we have done something nice and so we receive a gift? Is […]
When we consider Christianity there are many who make it sound like Christianity is not really something that is factual or concrete. There is a temptation to think that it is true because I believe it to be true. Yet, there are things that must have happened in history for it to be true. So, […]
So, if God really is not able to overlook a few infractions then why try to please him? I mean if God is going to hold our feet to the fire because one man could not control himself then why worship Him? I mean there are other gods that are much nicer. These are things […]
One of the frustrating things about this world is that when you think you have it figured out then you find a contradiction. In other words when you think you have all the laws for success figured out then things change. One could look at this world and say that it is unstable. Or one […]
The Heidelberg Catechism opens on a note that is a bit of a downer. You see there is the message that we are those who naturally hate God and our neighbor. When we hear such strong statements we might be tempted to give up in our Christian life. You see we are just sinful anyway […]
When we look at this world there are many things that concern us. I am sure that if you talked to anyone one the street they would tell you things that they do not appreciate about this world and want it to change. However, what is the root of the problem? How is seeing the […]
What do you say if someone were to ask you, “What is your comfort in life?” I hope that you would answer that Christ is ultimately our comfort. Yet, why is it comforting to know that Christ has redeemed us? Is it so that we can be lazy and not care about conforming to the […]
