Die to the World and Live to God

There is a lure, an unavoidable temptation that we feel that seeks to draw us to the world and the things of it. It pulls at us even as we seek to focus our minds and our attention on God, creating tension within us. This tension, in turn, works to wrestle us from the...

Always Reforming

When Martin Luther first nailed the 95 Theses on the door of the Castle Church door was little doubt he had no idea the far-reaching implications of what it was that he was setting in motion. Though the Church in the West had been challenged before, on October 31st,...

Forsaking the Vanity of Many

It is, perhaps, one of the easiest things in the world for us to compromise on truth. Though we are called to faith, transformed by the power of the Spirit, we still live in this world, and it’s a world that frequently conflicts with the Scripture. Perpetually...

Our Restless Hearts

It’s perhaps not terribly out of line to say that we are an anxious people, often times difficult to satisfy regardless of the blessings that we enjoy. We are always looking for something more, as if unable to find contentment, wanting things to be different than they...

Imitators of Christ

As Christians, we are called to live as imitators of Christ (1 Cor. 11:1) patterned after he who, for our sake, took on the form of man, living that perfect life in accord with the Law, and served as the sacrifice for our sins. Most of us have some understanding of...

More Than A Feeling

As Christians, we are called to live a certain way, to be followers of God, walking in love just as Christ first loved us, giving freely of himself. (Eph. 5:1-2) Charity, kindness, goodness, and gentleness are intended to bloom from our souls, the fruits of a life...

The Nature of Righteous Anger

We live in an angry society, and the reality is that we often watch as that anger is put on display for the world to see. Protests quickly devolve into rioting, threats of violence loom, and we either turn a blind eye to it or we applaud the efforts. In some senses...

The Practice of Love

To read the Scriptures is to realize something very basic, very fundamental. This is, namely, that love is essential to the Christian faith. There can be no sincere expression of Christianity, no life in the Spirit, no transformation if it is not guided and led by...

The Dangers of Cultural Christianity

As Christians we are called to be in this world, and, yet, not of it. It is the idea that is conveyed in Paul’s epistle to the church in Rome as he tells the believers there that they are not to be conformed to this world. Rather, they are to be transformed by the...
