Fortresses of Falsehood

The world builds fortresses of falsehood. Secularism’s prophets are all around us. They speak to us on the news. They preach to us on social media. They weave their deceptions into the stories they tell us in TV shows and movies. Even corporations and stores attempt to become temples to these unholy delusions, and the … Continue reading Fortresses of Falsehood

A Different Kind of Fear

There is a fear that will make you fearless. Many of God’s saints have gone through times that shook them with such terrible fright they felt paralyzed. These times usually involve getting a glimpse of the holiness of God. Like Isaiah, we tremble and come undone, but it is during those times we learn that … Continue reading A Different Kind of Fear

Dear Desponding Christian

"You are complete in Him!" -Colossians 2:10 Oh desponding Christian, is not your grief caused by looking within yourself? Is not that miserable feeling of failure and disappointment, caused by your strange fixation upon your hollow heart of iniquity? You look within, hoping to find something good, something pure, something precious, something clean, but what … Continue reading Dear Desponding Christian

How a Sermon on Hell Lifted my Soul

Contrary to the popular notion, as the pastor preached on hell, instead of pushing me away, he drew me into the grace of God. As I sat there, the preacher was scriptural, somber, and approached the subject with a reverence that made us all sit up and pay attention. I was at one of the … Continue reading How a Sermon on Hell Lifted my Soul

Returning to God After a Time of Sin

You have done all the evil that you could. Sure, there is more you could have done, but you pushed your sinning as far as you were comfortable. There were still certain family and societal structures in place you were afraid to defy. Even in sinning, cowardice can hold sway. In it all, you polluted … Continue reading Returning to God After a Time of Sin

God Does Not Forget We Are Weak

"He knows our frame; He remembers that we are but dust!" - Psalm 103:14 God does not treat us as if we were strong, holy, and unfallen angels! He does not forget that we are weak, that it is hard for us to live right, that we are easily tempted and overcome. He is very … Continue reading God Does Not Forget We Are Weak

Finding Joy in the Immutability of God

Futility. That is what every attempt at rebellion against God entails. Every railing of sin, every shaking of the fist in His face, results in the same thing: nothing. We serve an unchanging God, and nothing can diminish His perfections. For I, the LORD, do not change. – Malachi 3:6 Thomas Brooks once said, “If … Continue reading Finding Joy in the Immutability of God

The Letter and the Spirit

The letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life. (2 Cor. 3:6) The law of God is holy and just and good; it is inexorable, and we have fallen under its just condemnation. That is at the bottom what Paul means by the "the letter killeth.’ He does not mean that attention to pedantic details shrivels … Continue reading The Letter and the Spirit
