Liberty & “Adult Beverages”

Christian liberty is a broad subject. It is part of a larger discussion between legalist and libertines. Of course, these labels apply to extremist notions held by professing Christians. The legalist loves to forbid and is quite ingenious at finding “biblical” reasons for their ever-increasing list of things Christians cannot do. The legalist also loves to judg...

Kingdom Advancement

My heart has really great hiding places. Right now, there are areas of pride (and other sins) in my heart that I am unaware of, and in yours too. Hidden pride is comfortable pride, that is, it’s not bothered, it’s not repented of, it’s left alone…and pride likes to be left alone. ...

Sanctification - The Joy of Sinners

The first step one takes in their Christian walk, up until their last, is a battle; a battle to put off the old man and to put on Christ (Rom 13:14). As a believer, you feel the weight and struggle of this battle daily. There are days when your sin has the high ground and victory over it seems bleak....

Eternal Joy vs Temporal Sorrows

As a Christian, you are (right now) the most blessed and privileged being in existence and no amount of earthly sorrow changes that. Is the ocean less deep from the child who steals a cup full of its water for their sand castle? Then even more so, your eternal joy in Christ, cannot be lessened by temporal sorrows....

What Our Lives Are Really Saying

One of the dangers we often face as Christians is a religious mindset that deceives us into thinking we are what we are not. We spend so much of our time talking about what it means to be Godly that we convince ourselves we are, simply because we talk about it a lot....
