My Favorite Christmas Hymn

People always ask me around this time, "Paul, what's your favorite Christmas hymn?" It may be the most difficult question I have to answer all year! There have been so many beautiful words written that capture the Advent story, and with each new addition, the narrative becomes no less amazing: the King of Kings and Lord of Lords leaves the splendor of glory to come to a shattered earth to suffer and die for self-oriented rebels. The Messiah is not born in a palace, but in a stable. He... Read More

The Real Black Friday

There was only one Black Friday. It was not the day after Thanksgiving. It was not a day when self-oriented consumers bumped into climbed over pushed into screamed at and hated the other consumers who were in their way. 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 doing what he came to do and what the world was desperate for. That Friday the world went dark the Father turned... Read More

13 Questions To Ask This Thanksgiving

Every day of your life, you can find reasons to complain. After all, you exist in a broken world, and life doesn't operate the way it was meant to.

How Are You Suffering?

This post is sponsored by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. Are you suffering right now? Are you close to someone facing hardship? The Bible says that suffering should not catch us off guard. Peter warned us, “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you” (1 Peter 4:12). Most Christians who read their Bible and sit under good preaching recognize that suffering is a guaranteed life... Read More

The Doctrine of Holiness

There's a significant difference between me and my two-year-old granddaughter. 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 and... Read More

The Doctrine of Existence

It's the most significant reality in the universe. It's the glue that holds every aspect of theology together. It's the place where the content of Scripture finds both its rationality and its reliability. This doctrine provides vital information for the scientist, the psychologist, the mathematician, the business executive, the educator, the physician, the politician and the plumber. You either recognize it as true and humbly submit your life to its foundational implications, or... Read More
