The Bible is a Masterpiece

I'm learning a lot of new things about the Bible that I've never known before! It is exciting me, which is spurring me on to keep learning and reading! Most of what this post contains are not knew ideas, since many theologians and bible historians already had figured this stuff out. But it is new... Continue Reading →

Addressing our Memory Problems

There are many seasons, days, or hours where I can be tempted to think "God, are you even there? God, do you even care about me in this?" The Lord is working in my heart so these questions come less often (Praise Him!). But still, how often are we tempted to question God's presence, goodness,... Continue Reading →

Giving Our Best to God

When we think about giving offerings or tithes to God, do we really think about giving God the best fruit of our labor? I surely don't.

I have, and I have had a very hard time asking this question because most people respond with a “you just do it”. I always feel so discouraged because... Continue Reading →

Being a Cafeteria Christian

Have you ever heard of a Cafeteria Christian? This is the kind of Christian that walks up to the metaphor biblical cafeteria counter, and picks up the stuff they like, but leaves the stuff they don't like behind before moving onto the dining room floor to live out their meal. This idea has always bothered... Continue Reading →
