But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

I remember getting into a theological discussion with a pastor one time, and at the end of our kerfuffle, he looked at me and asked, “If you had the choice, would you rather pastor a church or teach in a seminary?” I’ll never forget his puzzled look when I responded, “Pastor...

I used to be an insurance salesman. It was a tough job but it paid the bills. One of the most challenging parts to the job was convincing people that having a discussion about life insurance was worth their time. Of course, once the conversation happened, most people realized their dire need for protection in the event of death.

Two Kinds of Pride Featured

Written by

Every Christian has heard the verse, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” In fact, it’s referenced several times in Proverbs 3:34, James 4:6, and 1 Peter 5:5. But, by default, it’s easy to see pride only in our boasting. So we think to ourselves, “as long as I don’t tell everyone how awesome I

Are You One of Jesus’ Sheep? (Part 3)

In this series of posts we have been looking at how Jesus describes His sheep in John 10 and we have established that Jesus provides five marks about His sheep in John 10:3-9. Again, those five marks are:

  1. Jesus’ sheep enter through Him. (vs. 9)
  2. Jesus’ sheep hear His voice. (vs. 3)
  3. Jesus’ sheep follow Him. (vs. 4)
