Worshipping God

Psalm 100:1-2, Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into His presence with singing! In 1 Chronicles 16, the ark of the covenant is brought into the tent of meeting and David leads the congregation of people in worship at this church dedication. They are rejoicing that they have…

Stop Trying to Make the Bible Relevant

Psalm 78:4, …tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and His might, and the wonders that He has done. Churches today are struggling to reach out to my generation—Millennials. My generation is full of cultural relativistic narcissists. In the attempt to bring more youth into the church, churches often try to make…

Why Should I Go To Church?

As a future pastor, this question bugs me. I come across Christians from all different walks of life who somehow get it in their heads that since they’re Christian, church isn’t required. Actually, the opposite is true. Church is required because you’re Christian! If you’re not Christian, obviously church isn’t required. After all, why would an unbeliever…

“God Helps Those Who Help Themselves”

Psalm 90:12, So teach us to number our days, that we may get a heart of wisdom. It should go without saying that we live in a narcissistic society. In today’s society, autonomy is the framework within which our morality is formulated—the self has become sacred. Society teaches us we should spend our time and energy…

God Knows You

Psalm 139:1, O LORD, You have searched me and known me! How well do you know the people you are closest to? No matter how well we may know a person, there are times when their words and actions shock us. Can you think of any time a person you thought you knew really well surprised…

Everything Is A Theological Issue

Everything is a theological issue. What do I mean by this? The context of this thought comes from 2 Corinthians 10:4, “For the weapons of our warfare are not of flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.” And Ephesians 6:11-18 about wearing the armour of God. We quote these verses all the time and even do numerous Bible studies…

Staying Tuned to God’s Word

Matthew 11:15, “He who has ears, let him hear.” When one does not adhere to God’s Word and abide in Christ, they will tell Christians many lies that belong to their pagan worldview. They tell us abortion is okay because it’s the woman’s body, ignoring the other body inside her. Autonomy becomes sacred. Almost all sexual…
