    New Year, New Joys, New Sorrows

    As the calendar turns from December to January and as 2023 gives way to 2024, a new year is laid out before us. We may have already drawn a few lines and circles on some of the dates—appointments here, vacations there. We may have slotted in a few dreams and plans for certain days and…

    Today’s post is sponsored by BJU Seminary and written by Bruce Meyer, biblical counseling faculty member.

What do we do with dark despair? If you know anything about depression, you know that its seems to…

  • Short of Glory

    Short of Glory

    Every word of the Bible matters. “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.” The entire word of God is “living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow.” Its…

  • New and Notable Christian Books for May 2023

    Though May has come and gone, it proved to be a good month for Christian book releases. I sorted through the stacks that landed on my desk and arrived at this list of new and notables. In each case I’ve provided the editorial description to give you a sense of what it’s all about. I…

    A La Carte (November 11)

    Today is Remembrance Day in Canada, and I’m thinking about my grandmother’s brother who died during the Second World War as a fighter pilot for the Royal Canadian Air Force. There are a couple of notable Kindle deals today, including a good one from Paul Tripp. (Yesterday on the blog: Life Is Fleeting) What is…

    A La Carte (January 31)

    Today’s Kindle deals offer a few interesting books, including a relatively new one from John MacArthur. (Yesterday on the blog: New and Notable Christian Books for January 2020) What Does Paul Mean When He Says, “Act Like Men”? I had been meaning to figure this out and write this article, so am glad Wyatt got…

  • Open the Bible

    Today’s post features Pastor Colin S. Smith talking about openthebible.org, a free website that can help you share the God of the Bible with others. It is sponsored by Unlocking the Bible. Sometimes a single conversation can have a profound influence on your entire life and ministry. That was true for me when I met…

  • Orphan Care and the Great Commission

    This week the blog is sponsored by Moody Publishers and this post is written by Todd Chipman from his book Until Every Child is Home: Why The Church Can and Must Care for Orphans. I wrote Until Every Child Is Home because I have seen that God’s instruction for His people to care for orphans…

    Advanced Technologies and Basic Christianity

    A couple of weeks ago someone captured a photograph of a smiling or sneering, mocking or awkward young man standing face-to-face with a peacemaking or threatening, respectful or bad-mannered older man. This photo was posted to Twitter. And you know what happened next. But even though you know what happened, it’s worth considering why it…

    Weekend A La Carte (February 7)

    It requires a bit of a time commitment, but you may enjoy this video on Why Bible Typography Matters. And, believe it or not, it actually does. I appreciate this pastor’s view that what is happening in the church today might be able to be compared to a baseball team Rebuilding in the Off-Season. “The…

    The Essential: Sin

    This is the seventh installment in a series on theological terms. See previous posts on the terms theology, Trinity, creation, man, Fall, and common grace. The word “sin” first appears in the Bible when God speaks to Cain, warning him not to give in to his anger against his brother: “If you do not do…

    This is now the fifth installment in a series that takes a brief look at important theological terms. You can see previous posts on the terms theology, Trinity, creation, and man.

    The Best of February

    I’ve been at this blogging thing for quite a long time now—a bit over 9 years. I’ve been at the daily blogging thing for almost as long. This means that I’ve got an extensive backlist of articles from years gone by. I thought it might be fun to pull out some of the articles I…

  • A Sunday in L.A.

    Well, I made it safely from Boston to Los Angeles. One thing I neglected to realize when planning my travel is that arriving in L.A. at 10:30 PM is a lot later than it seems when coming in from the East Coast. So I arrived at 10:30, but of course it was really 1:30 AM…

    From the Garden to the Cross

    I know that it is bad form to turn a sermon into a blog post, but I’m going to do it anyway (hey, it’s my blog!). Yesterday I preached from Genesis 3 and found great joy in going from the garden to the cross. There are lots of ways we can do this, but I…

    Her Desire, His Rule

    Last week I took a brief look at the first part of Genesis 3:16, a verse which describes the consequence of the woman’s role in the fall into sin. In the first part of God’s judgment on the woman he declared that bearing children would now be painful and traumatic. Her primary life function would…

    A Short History of Communication

    Over the past few days I have been preparing to preach on Genesis 3, one of those amazing biblical texts that just opens wide as you begin to study it. One clear application from the first seven verses is that we need to know, believe and stand upon the Word of God. Adam and Eve…
