I love being a dad. I love the constant activity around the house, the games, the lectures, the noise, and the adventure that each day brings. I love chasing them around the house, telling them stories, and pestering their mother together. I am also terrified of being a dad. Of all of the ...

Hebrews 11 is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible. It reads like an all-star team of redemptive history. It is filled with sinners who, by faith, followed hard after God despite many reasons not to. Abraham left his family and his security not knowing where he was going and then once he ...

I made a tragic mistake the other day…I read the comment section at the end of an online article. I generally avoid reading the unintelligible drivel that is so pervasive on the internet, but for some reason I was drawn to it. I can’t remember what the article was about, but I was ...

As Pastor Jym was preaching the first sermon in the advent series titled “Born to Die,” I was struck by the dark side of Christmas that we often overlook with sugar binges, happy carols, and holiday decorations. Sure, I know that Good Friday is only a few months away and that ...

Last week Pastor Jym offered some cautions on some well-known teachers with which we are all familiar. As I pondered his admonitions I began to think back to so many men and women who have impacted my faith. People like John Piper, J.I. Packer, Dorothy Sayers, C.S. Lewis, and Tim Keller have all ...

I think most of us would agree that the church in the West is in increasingly poor shape today.  Therapy has replaced actually knowing God, spirituality has displaced theology, the tyranny of activity limits day-to-day discipleship, marketing trumps mission, entertainment has replaced prayer, ...

It is officially ‘election season’ in America. Candidate signs dot the landscape, mudslinging commercials fill the airwaves, and anxiety is palpable in the hearts of voters. Sadly, this anxiety flows deeply in the hearts of believers as well. I can’t tell you how many times in ...

Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have come to share in ...
