We're Not Independent

How do you respond when God sends someone your way to correct or confront you? I tell husbands and wives around the world that if they want to experience lasting change in their marriage, they first need to fire their inner defense lawyer. I joke that I don't have just one lawyer at work; I have an entire law firm practicing on my behalf! That illustration makes people laugh, but it's actually very morbid spiritual reality. It's not natural for us to look into the mirror of... Read More

10 Years, 10 Blessings

It was one of the hardest decisions I ever made. I loved my work at The Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF). I deeply respected the people who worked with me. Many of them had made an indelible impact on my heart and life. But God was producing a restlessness in my heart, and it became clear that He was calling me to a wider ministry to the Body of Christ. So in June of 2006, we launched Paul Tripp Ministries, Inc. (In case you’re wondering, we chose that name not... Read More

Why Yesterday Was Special

Yesterday was a very special day on my calendar. Yes, it was Father's Day, but something more significant happened. On June 19, 2006, Paul Tripp Ministries was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization, which means yesterday, my team and I celebrated our ten-year anniversary! The past decade has been an amazing journey. When we first launched, I had no idea what God had planned. By grace alone, we've been able to connect the transforming power of Jesus Christ to...

Jonah and the God of Grace

I can't recall how many times I've sat down to study the book of Jonah, but I am confident of this: each time I read through those 48 captivating verses of narrative, the Lord grips my heart, exposes my rebellion, and draws me closer to his presence of mercy and forgiveness. I want you to walk with me, verse-by-verse, through the story of Jonah. I've broken the book up into 8 brief video lessons, and I've also created a Discussion Guide to help make this study as relevant as possible in your... Read More

Two Things Every Human Being Searches For

This post is sponsored by Crossway. Why do families fight and break apart? Why do corporations steal and cheat? Why do we struggle with arrogance and anger? Why are we elated one moment and depressed the next? Why do nations threaten to go to war? Why are others committed to peace or neutrality? Why do societies campaign for liberty, equality, and justice? Why are certain individuals devout, courageous with their faith, and zealous for evangelism? Why are others indifferent or... Read More

Don't Wait Until Next Easter

I live in downtown Philadelphia, and when the Phillies won the World Series in 2008, the celebration was unlike anything I've ever experienced. Tens of thousands of people spilled into the streets late at night to celebrate the victory. Total strangers became best friends for hours as the city rejoiced in unison. A few days later, I walked down the very same street. It was different, shockingly different. I felt let down; to be honest, the drastic change was depressing for me. I wanted to see... Read More

A Horribly Beautiful Friday

At the center of a biblical worldview is this radical recognition: the most horrible thing that ever happened was the most beautiful thing to ever happen. As we reflect on Good Friday, we turn our somber attention to the bloody cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. Could it be possible for something to happen that was more terrible than this? Could any injustice be greater? Could any loss be more painful? Could any suffering be worse? The only man who ever lived a life that was perfect in every... Read More
