People who are opposed to the gospel are not opposed to ice cream.

We are not out to make smarter sinners; we are out to make disciples.

Knowing God, J.I. Packer

Knowing God, J.I. Packer

On January 7, 1855, the minister of New Park Street Chapel, Southwark, England, opened his morning sermon as follows: It has been said by someone that “the proper study of mankind is man.” I will not oppose the idea, but I believe it is equally true that the proper...

The One, Single Most Important Spiritual Discipline

The One, Single Most Important Spiritual Discipline

No Spiritual Discipline is more important than the intake of God’s Word. Nothing can substitute for it. There simply is no healthy Christian life apart from a diet of the milk and meat of Scripture. The reasons for this are obvious. In the Bible God tells us about...

The law of effort

The law of effort

There is more to Christian living than trying really hard to be good. More, but never less. Some Christians, I am afraid, don’t try hard enough. When Paul spoke of Christian living he spoke of striving and straining and boxing and running. These are all very active...

Joyful Surrender

Joyful Surrender

Discipline, for a Christian, begins with the body. We have only one. It is this body that is the primary material given to us for sacrifice. If we didn’t have this, we wouldn’t have anything. We are meant to present it, offer it up, give it unconditionally to God for...

Grace Giving

The story goes that a man was attending a cattle auction where the auctioneer was enumerating the qualities of a beautiful Guernsey cow. The newcomer, eager to buy the cow, asked an old farmer who seemed to know something about every cow at the auction, “How much does...

Greek words for love

Greek words for love

The Greek language of Paul’s day had at least three common words that can be translated by the English word “love”: erōs (this term does not appear in the New Testament), philia [5373], and agapē [26]. The word erōs very often referred to a self-pleasing, passionate...

God Is Closer Than Your Think

God Is Closer Than Your Think

Frederick Buechner writes, “There is no event so commonplace but that God is present within it, always hiddenly, always leaving you room to recognize him or not . . . because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.” How close has...

Spiritual Disciplines of the Christian Life

Spiritual Disciplines of the Christian Life

Discipline without direction is drudgery. Imagine six-year-old Kevin, whose parents have enrolled him in music lessons. After school every afternoon, he sits in the living room and reluctantly strums “Home on the Range” while watching his buddies play baseball in the...

The Loud and Colorful God of Scripture

The Loud and Colorful God of Scripture

Henri Nouwen, a priest and prolific writer on the spiritual life, had just finished an exhausting lecture tour and was “dead tired, so much so that I could barely walk.” He was anxious, lonely, restless, and, in his words, “very needy.” As he visited the office of a...

His kingdom will never end

His kingdom will never end

His kingdom will never end. LUKE 1:33 She looks into the face of the baby. Her son. Her Lord. His Majesty. At this point in history, the human being who best understands who God is and what he is doing is a teenage girl in a smelly stable. She can’t take her eyes off...

Naturalist Pathway

Naturalist Pathway

One Christmas Eve afternoon I escaped to walk through a favorite part in the woods on the outskirts of Manassas, Virginia. The quiet, motionless world was a welcomed change from the butting and clawing of the department stores and malls. The stillness created a sense...

Rethinking death

Rethinking death

How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! PSALM 139:17 NKJV Aging is a universal condition. But the way we try to hide it, you would think it was a plague! There are girdles which compact the middle-age spread for both sexes....

Sin is refusing to believe that God is good

Sin is refusing to believe that God is good

The oft-misunderstood Christian notion of sin makes many people uncomfortable. Indeed, it establishes a clear line of accountability — ​but to a God who loves me and has my best interests at heart. Again the parallel to a doctor applies. Coming from a strict church...

 Joseph’s Courage and Sacrifices

 Joseph’s Courage and Sacrifices

An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.” —Matthew 1:20 NIV It’s easy to overlook people who, by choice or assignment,...
