Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 2, Family Worship

Blog_2.15.19_Family worship

I am so grateful that the Lord put me in a home where my dad regularly led us in family worship growing up. I know that this is not the norm for most people today. The family is being more and more torn apart. Not only in terms of redefining what the family is, but also in terms of the growing demands for our time, and the endless onslaught of entertainment that seem to cr...

True Christianity

Blog_2.14.19_True_Christianity

True Christianity is the miracle of new life. We can’t earn this life. We can’t obtain this life by our own performance or sincerity. It comes completely by a gift of free grace. That’s how Peter opens his letter in 1:1, “To those who have obtained a faith.” In other words, True Christianity is something that happens to you, just like birth. ...

Parenthood in the Local Church: Part 1, The Gospel

Blog_2.1.19_What_is_the_gospel_and_how_teach

My husband makes fun of me because I hate instruction manuals. “Just let me figure it out; I learn better that way!” I insist. Besides the fact I may ruin (have ruined?) a project before I even begin, he tells me that I miss out on so much by not reading the manual and thus not understanding the maker’s intentions for and capabilities of a device....

The Joy of the Lord

Blog_1.30.19_The Joy of the Lord

This weekend’s sermon really broke my heart. I’ll commend it to you here in its entirety. In briefest summary, we see from John 18:12-27 the account of the split screen drama of Peter’s unfaithfulness and three time denial of Jesus, all the while Jesus is standing as the faithful groom to his bride. If Peter, Jesus’ special disciple, can do this, how much worse am ...

Our Stubborn God

Blog_1.28.19_Our_Stubborn_Godjpg

Many of us have never thought of stubbornness as a positive quality. In fact, the first definition listed for "stubborn" in Merriam-Webster is "unreasonably or perversely unyielding: MULISH" Yikes! But the second listed definition is this: "justifiably unyielding: RESOLUTE." Now that is a different case all together. That is the kind of stubborn our God is. Justifyably uny...

Parenthood in the Local Church

Blog_1.25.19_Parenthood_in_the_Local_Church

When my husband and I first came to understand Reformed Theology, we were in what I call our “Little Years.” My oldest son was a year old, I was pregnant with our second, and a couple years later I would have our third. I’m grateful for God’s timing in this, because as my husband and I were growing in our theology and knowledge of God, our children were too little ...

The Injury of Antinomianism

Blog_1.21.19_The Injury of Antinomianism

This gets to the very heart of the gospel. The reason why the gospel is good is not because of the benefits that we receive from it. The gospel is not good primarily because we gain freedom, or peace, or forgiveness of sins. The gospel is good because we gain Jesus Christ Himself. Christ himself is the gospel. The false teachers were treating Christ as a means to an end. T...

The Only Light in this Present Darkness

Blog_12.30.18_The  Only Light

It is a strange time of year, Christmas. For some it awakens feelings of joy and comfort, for some it brings the nostalgia of days past, and for others it is a harsh reminder of loss that stirs fresh grief and pain in our hearts. Sometimes it is a mixture of them all. Either way, one can hardly enter this season without being forced to face some sort of depth of emotion an...

How to Read Your Bible for the New Year

Blog_12.30.18_The Crisis of Authority

But there is another view of the Bible. This view affirms the Bible’s own testimony of itself, namely that this book it is not a product of man but has been breathed out by God Himself (2 Timothy 3:16). It claims that if this Word is believed...
