The Moral Code

The Moral Code

It is a well-known fact that if you hammer away at an object long enough, it will eventually cave in. Force causes compromise when applied repeatedly. This truth is not only evident in the fundamental laws of physics, but it is also clearly visible in our society today. There was a time, not so long […]

Training Wills

Training Wills

A wise man once told me that “everything in life needs to be trained.” As I’ve matured, it has become evident that his words were cloaked in wisdom. Just like children, adults need to be trained as well. That’s right, men and women should be trained. Now before you jump on my back, let me […]

Don’t Be a Product of Your Time

Don’t Be a Product of Your Time

They want what you have. You want what they have. Most people think they’re missing out on something if they don’t have “it.” “It” can be the new car, house, material possessions, relationship status, a particular socioeconomic status, celebrity, etc. Few believe that God has them exactly where they’re supposed to be with exactly what […]

The Blame Game

The Blame Game

Whenever calamity strikes, it is a common practice for people to search for a scapegoat, somebody to pin the blame on. No matter the situation, someone is usually singled out as the responsible party. It appears that by identifying a culprit in every tragedy, we are rewarded with a sense of comfort on some emotional […]

Are You a Compelling Witness?

Are You a Compelling Witness?

Our world offers no peace. Violence, hatred, heartlessness, and Christians persecuted, followed by a campaign of deceptions and injustices on every level. Regretfully, some people live in a normalcy bias by underestimating the crisis. They justify the horrific events as simply “a sign of the times.” They stick their head in the sand in hopes […]

How I Am Learning to Become a Good Father

How I Am Learning to Become a Good Father

I really want to become a good father. In fact, this is one of the earliest desires that I’ve had. I did not have a good role model in my household; my father was selfish, angry, and abusive. I was five when we (my mother, three sisters, and I) ran away from him, so as […]

A Holy Movement

A Holy Movement

Imagine being a 16-year old, prize-winning debater at Cornell University and giving up your father’s business to step into the Father’s business. John R. Mott’s life changed forever when J.K. Studd (that’s his last name, and it fits), brother of C.T. Studd, came to speak a series of missionary messages in American colleges. On January […]

You Can’t Sit Here; These Seats are Reserved

You Can’t Sit Here; These Seats are Reserved

“Excuse me, but you can’t sit there. These seats are reserved.” Slightly embarrassed (or at least I was) we moved our seats. We barely settled in our next seating before we heard, “You can’t sit there either.” To my chagrin, we had been asked to move a second time. After all, we were visitors, how […]

Holding the Keys, But Still Shackled

Holding the Keys, But Still Shackled

He lived. He died. He rose three days later and ascended into Heaven. Between these major transition events of Jesus’s life lived among mankind, significant victories were acquired for Believers then, now, and those to come. As our risen King, Savior, Deliverer, and Redeemer, one of those victories is that Jesus has authorized those in […]

The Thief Who Would Reign

The Thief Who Would Reign

One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!” But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done […]

The Power of the Resurrection

The Power of the Resurrection

What does the resurrection of Christ mean to you? As a believer who has grown up in church, I must admit that at times it’s easy to overlook or take for granted the sacrifice of our Savior. We listen to powerful sermons, read the rich Word, and enjoy watching powerful plays that speak of our […]
