The King who abandoned His Throne

Every year I find that, as my family and I take time at Christmas to remember the astonishing incarnation of our Savior Jesus Christ, there is a new truth that the Spirit in me emphasizes to me and I am re-overwhelmed with who this God and this King is, who would take frail form and … Continue reading

How Shall I Then Pray?

1 Thessalonians 5:16, “Pray without ceasing.” Colossians 4:2, “Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving…” Ephesians 6:18, “With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for the saints.” Matthew 7:7-11, “Ask, and … Continue reading

O Holy Night – In Adoration of Christ

“O holy night, the stars are brightly shining, it is the night of our dear Savior’s birth…” The words to this now-beloved hymn were penned in France in 1847, during a stagecoach ride en route to Paris, whilst the author reflected on the nativity as recounted in the Gospel of Luke. Placide Cappeau de Roquemaure … Continue reading

The Wisdom of God

I recently was incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to attend the 2013 Ekklesia Conference. It was held at Grace Immanuel Bible Church in Jupiter, FL, where such gifted and passionate speakers as Jon Anderson, Jesse Johnson, Smedley Yates, Matthew Waymeyer, Rick Holland, and Jerry Wragg mightily brought the truth of God’s Word to light. … Continue reading

“Increase Your Praise”

In God’s grace I am seeking to be humble. And as I seek, the first step that I am deciding to take is to learn more about the character of my God, for He deserves all praise and adoration. When He first revealed to me the despicable pride that had infested my heart, I suddenly … Continue reading

The Wonderful Cross

The symbol of our great Savior, who laid down His sinless life for the sake of sinful wretches, is the cross. It is at the cross that we see His love poured out, overflowing as a river to cover the offenses and transgressions of mankind. We will never understand this love, nor the sacrifice that … Continue reading

In Christ Alone

Where is our hope, our joy, our life, our redemption, or our salvation? Is it not in Jesus Christ? Not only is it in Christ, but it is in His name and His power alone. Keith Getty and Stuart Townhend powerfully communicate this message in their modern hymn, “In Christ Alone”. As many of you … Continue reading

So we celebrate the Resurrection…

1 Corinthians 15:1-5 “Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of … Continue reading

All I Have Is Christ

I sang this song in church this morning, and it was such a blessing to me. Sovereign Grace Music aptly tells the story of the sinner who as been brought to life by the blood of Jesus. This song expresses the  true embodiment of the Christian life and faith. Surely we were all once lost and depraved, … Continue reading

“Again, I will say rejoice!”

1 Thessalonians 5:16, “Rejoice always…” It is not enough to say that I do not rejoice as often as I should, nor as passionately as I should. Recently, the Lord not only convicted me of my lack of joy, but also encouraged my heart with all that I have to truly rejoice in. Really, how … Continue reading
