Is That the Worst You can Do?

“The assured Christian may smile with contempt upon all his enemies, and say, ‘Is this the worst that you can do?’” (John Flavel) Christians are not the popular kids at school anymore.

Reflecting on God’s Grace

What began as a mere blog post morphed into this—my first book. Sometimes I simply look at the book and marvel at the grace and mercy of God. In the small amount time it’s been released, I’ve been discouraged and yet, at the very same time, I’ve been dumbfounded at the work He’s already doing […]

However, from what I see, it does exactly the opposite. […]

We’re Always in Gospel School

When I took my last class in high school, I had the privilege of walking across the stage and throwing my cap in the air. I had graduated high school. Four years later—an even bigger accomplishment—I was blessed to do the same thing, except from college. And two years after that I had the distinct […]
