Innocence on Trial

Share
Share

The cross event entails a blameless man, unworthy of death, murdered by guilty, vile men yet also dying on behalf of dirty defiled people who need a Savior. It’s the love story of love stories. Our loving Lord, seeing our need for a Savior, who is also just and requires death for sin, sees our rebellion. Instead of declaring us traitors and pronouncing, “Off with their heads!” (which we deserve), He sends His son to die in our place, the blameless for the guilty.

Paul, summarizes this reality in Romans 5:1-10

For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.

I love ministry. I love learning about other ministries and how the Lord uses them for His glory. I have the privilege of knowing a few military chaplains. It has been encouraging to see the way the Lord uses these men for His name. I pray this interview exposes some of their work and encourages you to pray for them. The following interview is with Air Force Major Joshua Stoley. I am extremely thankful for Major Stoley, especially his love for our Lord and His bride, the church. Please join me in learning about and praying for him and others who serve in this role.… Continue reading

Unlocking Hebrews

Most of my friends know I love coffee. So, it only goes without saying that, naturally, I’m drawn to the one book in the Bible where God teaches men to brew coffee, “He-brews.” (Lol, I don’t often tell dad jokes, but when I do he laughs). 🙂

4027007xIn all seriousness in my second year in Seminary, I took an exegesis of Hebrews class. My life has never been the same. Why study Hebrews?

The student of Hebrews learns christology, ecclesiology, anthropology, sanctification, substitutionary atonement, eschatology, suffering, and perseverance all intertwined into a beautiful tapestry drawing and teaching us to love Christ all the more. Continue reading

How to Avoid Disappointing Beliefs

Disciple-making can be a tough, slow, and arduous process. God tells us, “He who began a good work in you, He will complete it until the day of Christ Jesus” (Phil 1:6). Verses like this remind us people grow on God’s time table. Although our friend has faith in Christ, sometimes the unbelief, wrong thinking, or sinful actions take a while to change. The longer we walk with Christ, the more our responsibilities to be involved in disciple making. As we age in our walk, we recognize the call to be a Titus 2 disciple maker where older men train up younger men to walk sensibly and women share similar responsibilities towards younger women.… Continue reading

Why Movie, When you can Be “Holy”?

Share
Share

“Why would we go to a movie when we could do something spiritual like pray, read our Bibles, evangelize, or serve the body?” Most of us have heard or used this logic before. I’ve heard (and used) other subjects instead of movies: television, video games, board games, sports, beverage choices, or any hobby. I certainly can remember using this line of reasoning too.

The Problem

The line of reasoning, on the surface, appears holy and god-exalting. I mean, when we really weigh reading Scripture and watching a movie, who would say a movie is godlier than Scripture? The problem often presents itself when this reasoning is used to denounce and judge a person for watching television, movies, or any other “fun” activity. … Continue reading
