Well-Disguised Mercies

Today's mercies are for today's burdens.

God and Sandy (2013)

When faced with tragedies such as the tornadoes in Oklahoma, people tend to ask, "Where was God?" This blog was originally released following hurricane Sandy in 2012.

Hymn Stories: Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah

If Isaac Watts is known as the father of English hymnody, William Williams (1717-1791) is considered by many to be the father of Welsh hymnody.

When You Are Tempted to Doubt

When you are tempted to doubt your salvation, remember God’s faithfulness.

How Blessed We Already Are

If only we had eyes to see what God has done for us.

The Cult of Personality

A growing phenomenon within the ranks of churches, large and small (but mostly large), is the cult of personality. It’s when a person becomes the center of attention rather than Christ; an individual looms larger than a mission; a figure is given more status than the organization itself.

Created to Create Kingdom Culture

These two dynamics – kingdom advance and culture making – go together. Let me explain.

Prayerlessness Is Selfishness

The things you pray about are the things you trust God to handle. The things you neglect to pray about are the things you trust you can handle on your own.

Falling Pastors

One city. Three senior pastors of megachurches. And in just a six month period, three moral failures.

The Church Without _______

I'm generally not a big fan of bumper stickers, of advertising platitudinous tweets or angry opinions with my vehicle. But this one caught my attention.

Remember the Infertile Too

What if pastors set aside time in the church service to pray for children for the infertile? The Proverbs 31 woman warrants attention, but what about the 1Samuel 1 woman?

Practical Unity: Living Out the Words of Jesus to “Be One”

It’s easy to talk about “unity within the church” as long as we’re talking in the abstract. However, what do you do when a Christian brother or sister offends you or sins against you? Do you “write them off” and go your separate ways? I submit this is often the easier choice, but Jesus and the standards of his kingdom rule do not permit us to do so.

Am I Reformed?

Got your attention with the title, didn’t I? At least, the attention of a number of you who consider it a hot topic.

The Inequality of "Marriage Equality"

The fact that most homosexuals choose not to marry, under the restrictions that apply to everyone, doesn’t insinuate inequity for homosexuals. Their situation is like that of a social organization that wants to be treated as a church by the IRS but chooses not to conform to the definition of a church.

The Boundaries of Evangelicalism

As I survey the contemporary church, one of my gravest concerns is the power and prevalence of mysticism. It is at the heart of Sarah Young’s bestselling Jesus Calling, it is in all the much-loved books by John Eldredge... (read more)

Well, This Is Going To Be Awkward!

Our obsession with awkwardness reveals that we have greater love for conformity than for uniqueness and that our love is contingent on not embarrassing us.

Do You Want to Be a Burden to Your Children?

I love being the answer to problems. But when I need other people, I am reminded that I am not alone. I am not the solution. I am not the Messiah.

When They Were Small

Taking some time to reflect on my children...when they were small.
