Safe

I am safe, not because I have no trouble, or because I never experience danger. I am safe, not because people affirm me, or my plans always work out. I am safe, not because I am immune from disease, or free of the potential for poverty. I am safe, not because I am protected from disappointment, or separated from this fallen world.

Nothing Impossible With God

How could it be this incarnation miracle? Nothing impossible with God. How could it be the Son in human skin? Nothing impossible with God. How could it be Jesus born to a virgin? Nothing impossible with God. How could it be the Messiah child conceived by the Spirit? Nothing impossible with God. How could it be from eternal splendor to manger born? Nothing impossible with God.

No, all the action of the one Black Friday was on a hill of death outside the city where three souls hung on crosses —two criminals and the Messiah. Christ doing what he came to do and what the world was desperate for. That Friday the world went dark, the... Read More

8 Blessings Of Studying Your Bible

Between the "already" of your conversion and the "not yet" of your final home going, few things are more important in the Christian life than a practical and functional level of biblical literacy. One of the Father's most important gifts to his children in the here and now is the gift of his Word, and we simply won't be what God has called us to be and consistently do what God has commanded us to do without an ability to draw wisdom and insight out of the pages of...

The Doctrine of Holiness

There's a significant difference between my two-year-old granddaughter and me. Yes, I'm taller and older and able to support myself, but it's something more profound. She demonstrates this difference every time we're together. My granddaughter will make me sit down in a chair so she can serve me tea and a sandwich. When she delivers my order, the cup is empty and the plate has no food on it. But here's the amazing thing: my granddaughter has the ability to see both the... Read More

The Doctrine of Glory

I will never forget that evening. I can't think of a moment when I was more blown away by a musical composition. I don't recall the composer or the conductor, but I was at a performance played by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. My ticket put me in the first row and it was worth it. The music was powerful, foreboding, amazing, haunting, compelling, and glorious, all at the same time. There were moments when I wished this night would never end, and moments when I wanted to get up... Read More
