Proclaiming the Word Boldly

Acts 4:19-20, But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.” Standing before the council of the Sadducees, Peter and John had to answer for what they […]

We Die Blameless

John 8:21, “I am going away, and you will seek Me, and you will die in your sin. Where I am going, you cannot come.” Whom is Jesus speaking to here? Unbelieving Pharisees. When Jesus said this to them, they thought it meant Jesus was going to kill Himself (v. 22). But He made a distinction […]

Do not Deceive Yourself

Galatians 5:24, But those of Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its sufferings and its lusts. (Own Greek translation.) Therefore, when we are tempted with all sorts of sins and lusts, we must not deceive ourselves and think we can give in just because we are in Christ. For Christ died and rose from the dead […]

Being Single and Lonely

From a young age I’ve always been lonely. I started playing video games when I was 3-years-old, which is an isolated hobby. Fortunately, though, it is a growing community where gamers no longer have to be alone. I’ve always loved to write (hence this blog I started), so I prefer to sit at my desk […]

Two Kingdoms

Philippians 3:20, But our citizenship is in Heaven, and from it we await a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ… As Christians, we are citizens of God’s kingdom. As Paul wrote to the Colossians, in Christ God the Father has “delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son” (1:13). But […]

Peace with God

John 14:27, “My peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” People think Jesus came for world peace. These people do not know Jesus. He Himself says He came not to bring […]

Sheep Are Stupid

John 10:11, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep.” As Westerners, I think we generally understand the concept of the relationship between sheep and shepherd, but I still think it’s mostly lost in our culture. After all, shepherds aren’t exactly common these days as they were in biblical […]

Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs

What sort of songs should we be singing in worship? This debate has been going on for some time. I have known people who think this or that type of music should be sung and another that or this type. I have known people who refused to go to services because they played contemporary music. […]

Christ’s Authority

Hebrews 1:3, [Christ] is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of His nature, and He upholds the universe by the word of His power. After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high… Our confessional creed—the Nicene Creed—essentially follows the format of this […]

To Live for Christ in Generosity, Kindness, and Charity

2 Corinthians 5:15, [Christ] died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for Him who for their sake died and was raised. As believers, when we read this, we think, “Of course I want to live for Him and not for myself!” After all, Christ died for us, as Paul […]
