What Does God Think About You?

What does God think about you? How we answer that question tends to reveal what we think about him. Most people tend to imagine God as barely able to endure his children. As if he looks down from on high with his arms crossed, thinking, “Once they stop being so prone to wander, I will … Continue reading What Does God Think About You?

The Narrow Road is a Wide Place

Contrary to popular opinion, you will never find freedom living for yourself. Since many people believe a self-centered life of unrestrained desires is the only way to freedom, they then postulate that Jesus’ teaching about the narrow way indicates a life of oppression. This idea could not be further from the truth. The narrow road … Continue reading The Narrow Road is a Wide Place

The Day I Ran From God

If a man does not repent, God will whet his sword; he has bent and readied his bow. – Psalm 7:12 The pursuit had begun. I knew God had drawn the bow of his wrath, and he had aimed it directly at me. The slightest tinge of my guilty conscience made the creaks and groans of the … Continue reading The Day I Ran From God

Breaking News From Heaven

May the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that day. - 2 Timothy 1:18 There is a day coming that is so severe the Bible often refers to it simply as “that day.” It is so expected and so known, no other descriptors are necessary.  "It will be a day of … Continue reading God is Faithful to His Promises (and Threats)

Painting Sin with Virtue’s Colors

It Starts with a Stick – Children’s Book

One of the questions I often ponder is if creativity is part of the sanctification process. What I mean by that is, since Jesus is creative, as we grow to be more like him, will we grow to be more creative. We could ask the same question of our ability to reason, organize, manage money, … Continue reading It Starts with a Stick – Children’s Book

THE FIGHT OF FAITH

Below is the post I wrote in 2016 to launch this site. It was a dark time for me. I was struggling in new ways with my health, and I was unsure of what it was going to do to me going forward. Like a journal entry, I go back to read this post from … Continue reading THE FIGHT OF FAITH

Overcoming the World

I recently had the privilege of preaching at the First Artesia Christian Reformed Church. Since 2020 has been a troubled-filled year, I preached on how faith is the victory that overcomes the world. I pray you will be encouraged. https://youtu.be/uvcBFRGb6BQ -D. Eaton
