What is the Trinity?

This post was adapted from my lesson during Equipping Hour at Sovereign Grace Bible Church on April 7, 2019. This is the first post in a series of two. There are several doctrines of the Christian faith that leave us asking, “Now what does that mean again?” We find that since these doctrines are soContinue reading “What is the Trinity?”

#WorshipWednesday – The Universalism of Worship

Back in 2005, David Foster Wallace—famous author and known secularist—said these words at the commencement ceremony at Kenyon College: “Everybody worships. The only choice we get is what to worship. And the compelling reason for maybe choosing some sort of god or spiritual-type thing to worship…is that pretty much anything else you worship will eatContinue reading “#WorshipWednesday – The Universalism of Worship”

God’s Grace in our Lives

Ordinarily, I write about theology and how it is applicable to our lives as Christians. From time to time, though, it’s necessary to write about more personal things.

Recently, my wife and I went to another ultrasound appointment. During this particular one, not only did we see (!) the baby’s heartbeat, but she–yes, she!–was literally moving around.

People are approval-seekers. We want to be known; we want to be approved; we want to be well-thought of. That’s not necessarily a bad desire to have. In all actuality, it’s a God-given desire. But because of the Fall, those desires—just like all other desires—have become distorted. Rather than wanting to be known by God,Continue reading “Who Do You Seek Approval From?”
