This Easter, eyes will be opened

As we approach Easter, many of us think about the meaning of Easter. It is not about bunnies, colored eggs, peeps, or chocolate candy. The Bible gives us the true meaning of Easter: “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the […]

The means of grace

Throughout the Bible, language of family and friendship is used to talk about our relationship with God.

The grace of God, freely given for all people

Lent has begun, and we’re going to talk about grace. Prevenient, justifying, and sanctifying grace. But first, let’s turn our attention to the reading and understanding of scripture: “For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say ‘No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live […]

True freedom

When I talk to people about Jesus one of the reasons I often hear for why they don’t want to accept Jesus is that they don’t want to give up their freedom. They say religion is full of rules of what you can and cannot do. My response is always, “You are correct, religion is […]

The case for charity

What do you do when you are in a sticky situation? Perhaps there is a clear right and wrong to the matter and perhaps there is not. What is your default position? Is it to dig in on principle, compromise, or cave? The depth of the issues and the personalities involved will determine how far […]
