Significance

Friends, the significance our hearts long to find is not secured in the perceived relevance culture provides… nor is it obtained in the workplace, with a degree, or by our appearance. Our worth is not determined by how many likes we acquire on social media… It’s not even dependent upon the number of Bible studies … Continue reading Significance

The Lordship of Jesus

I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him [that is, Christ]: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a … Continue reading The Lordship of Jesus

The Problem of Pragmatism

Where do we go for strength? To what or to whom do we seek wisdom? Are we trusting God with all of our hearts, or are we compromising by leaning into pragmatism? Are we praying and waiting?

Studying the Book of Ruth

Inspired by God, scholars point to the Prophet Samuel as the possible writer. “Penned” between 1011 and 931 B.C., this historical account of Boaz’s and Ruth’s marriage points beautifully to the sovereignty of God and His Redemptive plan (the Gospel).
