When God Becomes our Satisfaction

My heart hasn’t had much of a desire for God and His word for a while now. Many days I would only pray that God would help me to want Him at all. It’s a strange type of faith when you wake up in the morning, hoping that your spark of joy in Christ will…

Peace With God

I don’t fully grasp the idea of having peace with God. Romans five tells me that being justified, I then have peace with God. I certainly don’t live like I believe this! I’ve been reading a fantastic book called “A Gospel Primer” by Milton Vincent wherein he goes very in-depth in gospel truth and gospel…

A Man Without Community

As each day went by this week I’ve been continuing my trek through the Bible chronologically each morning. I wake up, eat breakfast, sip on some coffee, and do my best to dig into God’s word. The typical distractions of a smartphone and news feeds attempt to divert my attention, and they do succeed some…

Unborn Life Is Not Political

As the presidential race marches forward iv’e been struck by some of my Christian friends interested in a candidate who is pro-choice (or how i like to put it, Pro-Murder). This post isn’t about an argument for non-believers for the pro-life argument. Rather, i’m putting forward thoughts and making some logical reasoning’s why Christians should be discerning…

Nature Is Not Your Church

As I drove home from work today, I was behind a vehicle with many bumper stickers. One read “what would Buddha do” while another said “Nature is my Church“. I want to zero in on the latter sticker. The phrase holds many misconceptions about what the Church is, or rather who the Church is. Nature is certainly…

Being a Christian Is Not Easy

I was recently reading an article highlighting “great things about being a Christian”. Most of them were outward things, i.e. having great friends, clean fun, etc. Of course it’s always good to count your blessings and be thankful for the outward gifts we have from following Christ, I just tend to be hesitant when only…

No Condemnation In Christ

When life changes and seasons begin and end, there’s a sense of insecurity that goes along with it. Though new adventures may be fun, they are to me often daunting. As someone who doesn’t particularly take well to change, I enjoy my routines and schedules. I like knowing what I’m doing and when to a…

Forgiveness Is Now

As the new year has come around I’m currently working towards memorizing all of Romans 8. Whether that takes me all this year or a few more months. I really don’t mind if it takes me that long. I just want to be able to quote it to myself and others at any given time. After…

Why I Trust The Bible

There are reasons, I think, for why we should trust the Bible. And one of them isn’t “blind” Faith. What i mean when i say blind faith is a faith that won’t reason, won’t think, or won’t search scripture for validating evidences. What I don’t mean is that someone is stupid for not being an…

James 4

In James 4 he writes quite a few things that might catch us off guard, “cleanse your hands.. purify your hearts, you double minded…” and he then goes on to say that we should put our laughter aside and mourn. What does he mean? Stop being happy? Put joy aside? I don’t think James is…

Tough Words Of Hope

I’ve been reading through Luke recently as a refresher on the gospel and Christ’s finished work on the cross. I’m a little more than halfway through and have noticed a lot of things Christ said that made me have to read again. In today’s age Jesus seems to have become more of a cultural figure,…

I decided, because I had to go and update my auto insurance (which took a decent chunk out of my normal writing time) to give you all a list of awesome resources I have found invaluable in my walk with Christ, below are links and pictures, enjoy! (click on the pictures for the link) Desiring…
