The Present Jesus

What kind of Christ do you have? I'm afraid many Christians' Christ is merely historical, someone they appreciate from the past and to whom they are indebted. Other Christians' Christ is futuristic and apocalyptic, soon to come to earth as the triumphant King. These are both equally true aspects of Christ, but I want to... Continue Reading →

The New Creation

For neither is circumcision anything nor uncircumcision, but a new creation is what matters (Gal. 6:15). Be it ascending a Fourteener in the Rockies or overlooking the Grand Canyon, creation truly has the ability to inspire and bring about worship and reverence towards God. One can't help but praise the Creator when watching thunderous storm... Continue Reading →

The Twofoldness of the Truth

I recently posted a link to a PDF of Robert Govett's pamphlet entitled The Twofoldness of the Truth. If you're willing to read it (it's not very long), please just skip this post and read the original. If you're short on time or you're curious how I'll summarize it, feel free to continue. When it...

The River

There is a river whose streams gladden the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. -Psalms 46:4 There is a river! This verse enlivened me this morning in such a strong way. There is a river! I hope that by the end of this post, many would be helped... Continue Reading →

WWJD

To many, "What would Jesus do?" or "WWJD" has become a sort of moral compass to their lives. When confronted with a difficult situation or even in seeing a homeless man begging for money, Christians desire to to imitate their Lord and how He lived His life on the earth. I've been considering this way... Continue Reading →

The 4 Laws

What role does the Law of the Old Testament play in the lives of Christians? What exactly are we supposed to do after we get saved? Why does it seem that being good is so difficult? Paul addresses all of these questions and more in the book of Romans, and it turns out that the... Continue Reading →

The Gifts in Life

As one who spent a year in a charismatic denomination, it'd be safe to say that I spent a fair amount of time studying, reciting, and speaking 1 Corinthians 12 to people. The spiritual gifts were mesmerizing to me. If God is still allowing people and even desiring His children to exercise these gifts, I... Continue Reading →

What was Finished?

When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30 According to the popular view in Christianity, Jesus' work was finished on the cross and now we simply need to believe in Him to get to heaven. If you're a really... Continue Reading →

Prophesying

When most people hear the word "prophecy," they think of foretelling the future and speaking about something before it happens. This was definitely my concept a couple of years ago. While this surely is an aspect of what prophecy is (Ezk. 34:2, 11; Matt. 16:18; Acts 11:27-28), it is not an all-encompassing definition. Consider the... Continue Reading →
