Families Running Ragged

Psalm 127 is attributed to Solomon.  Known for his wisdom, this worship song is his reminder of the need for God to be central in every home.  It’s a reminder to all parents that children are indeed a gift hand-wrapped by God. Unless the LORD builds a house, its builders labor over it in vain; unless the LORD watches over a city, the watchman stays alert in vain. In vain you get up early and stay up late, working hard to have…

Old Testament Overview

The Old Testament is a foundational pillar of the Christian faith.  Unfortunately, it is often avoided due to its complex nature, extensive lists, and historical distance.  As believers, we are called to embrace the entirety of God’s Word for our sanctification. God’s Word teaches us regarding the importance of knowing the entire counsel of God: Joshua 1:8 Psalm 119:160 Acts 20:27 2 Tim. 2:15 2 Tim. 3:16-17 Why the Old Testament Is Important It displays the magnificent character of God.…

Introducing The 2nd Mile Podcast

I have started a podcast in 2019 entitled The 2nd Mile. While our church has a podcast that archives weekly sermons, I wanted a platform to equip others in their pursuit of Christ.  I have grown so much from listening to podcasts, and I want to take advantage of this platform and opportunity to speak some specific truth into willing ears. You can listen to the introductory episode below or read what it is about, or go ahead and subscribe…

What’s God’s Will for My Life?

If you are like most people, you may be wondering what the will of God is for your life. What is your next step? Be assured that there is one person who wants you to know the will of God even more than you want to know it – and that is God Himself! He will not hide it from you, and He sincerely wants you to fulfill it. Read what God’s will is for your life in Ephesians 5:15-17.…

Fear Not – God [Still] Has a Plan

Fear not – God still has a plan. If you are like me, you probably have believed at some point that God did have a plan for your life, but along the way, you honestly begin to wonder if he is just making it up as he goes along.  Have you ever felt like someone made plans that began well, full of good intentions, but sometime later, you feel as if the whole thing is coming off the tracks? You might have even…

66 Themes [Memory Verse from Every Book in the Bible]

The lost of art of meditating and memorizing Scripture is a key discipline in the life of the disciple.  Most believers know that Scripture memory is a good discipline but just don’t know where to start.  If no one has ever trained you in this work, here is a workable method that might help. One Scripture memory collection that I encourage you to consider is to memorize a theme verse from every book in the Bible. Coming up with the list…

Let Your Spouse Off the Hook

Marriage is bound to have some troubles.  You must address conflict with your spouse wisely, and many things need to be addressed.  But I believe there are some things of which you simply need to let your spouse off the hook. Don’t get me wrong: some things need to be addressed!  But you need to address that which the spouse deserves to have addressed. I realized early in marriage that I never responded to my wife based solely on what…

The Justice of God

Anselm of Canterbury was an Italian monk who was born in the 11th century.  His work in theology and philosophy greatly assisted the Church.  He once posed an important question to God: “How dost Thou spare the wicked if Thou art just, supremely just?” His question and the biblical answer is important to our personal theology as we wrestle with the justice of God. Incorrect Perception: The Pushover God While each of us knows what it is like to walk…

The Difference a Study Bible Can Make in Prison

A few months ago, our staff received a letter from prison from an individual with a simple request: he wanted a study Bible.  Since I had been given some extras from someone, we put it in the mail and honestly forgot about it. Weeks later, I received a letter that floored me.  His gratitude was overwhelming, but his perspective was convicting. When was the last time you were this grateful for having a copy of God’s Word? The Letter August…
