Unboxing the Great Commission, Part One

This series on the Great Commission began with a focus on Christ’s authority because it is the magnitude of Christ’s authority that should compel and strike confidence in us to participate in this Great Commission vocation, spreading the glory of the Gospel to every corner of the earth. Ironically, three years before the Great Commission…

Authority to Go

Something like the Great Commission is easy to keep in conversation. Yet this mission is to result in action that goes far beyond discussion. In other words, it’s easy to talk-the-talk, but a lot harder to walk-the-walk. Far too often our theology is equipping us, but not moving us. We can be like a soldier…

How to Read Psalm 119

It’s the longest Psalm in the Psalter. It’s the longest “chapter” in the Bible. And at first, wading through all 176 verses can seem like a very daunting task!

Living in the Light of the Law

Last week at Bob Jones University, we finished our semester series on the Ten Commandments entitled “Oh How I Love Your Law! God’s Laws for True Life.” Why a series on the Ten Commandments to people with great familiarity with the Bible? Everyone knows about the Ten Commandments, but most people do not really know…

A Bible-Based Life

We live in an age where many people claim to know God but do not have any interest in really living according to the Bible. We often encounter people who are happy to love God as long as they can live for themselves. However, the Christianity of the New Testament was a radically different kind…

What I Learned from a New Believer

The look on Scott’s face was priceless as he sat across the table at the Starbucks down the road from the church. He had just discovered that the New Testament books were named after either the men who wrote them or the city in which their recipients lived. I must admit it was refreshing to…

The Proof of the Resurrection

We will gather at our churches this Sunday morning to celebrate the greatest event in the Christian faith – the physical resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. While you and I will gather to celebrate an event that we believe really happened, there will be thousands upon thousands of people who will attend…
