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

Your Respectable Sin Is Your Achilles Heel

The author of Hebrews sounds like a track and field coach explaining the need for proper attire and the danger of unnecessary resistance as he writes, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which...

Boasting Only in the Work of Jesus

Written by

Yestserday, I had the privilege of preaching from Romans 3:27-31 in our Sunday morning series. In this passage, Paul drives home the point with crystal clarity that justification is by faith alone apart from any human merit. As Paul has established that all people have sinned against God, he then...

Act Like Men

Written by

Satan delights in denigrating what God created as good. It has always been God’s plan for his Church to possess a certain masculinity in leadership and that masculinity flows into the general membership as well. One of the depressing realities of our modern culture is the assault upon...

The Righteousness We Need

Written by

Yesterday I preached from Romans 3:21-26 in our series through Romans. Paul made it very clear in the previous section that both Jew and Gentile stand in need of salvation because all have sinned. Paul turns his focus in this paragraph to the righteousness that’s required to please God. Paul...

Why Expository Preaching?

Written by

Often I find myself in conversations with prospective members about why we are committed to expository preaching. Many churches have a different approach to preaching which is usually topical or series driven so that it presents itself as ultra relevant. In an age of relevant driven approaches to...

The Truth About Sin

Written by

Yesterday morning, in our study through Romans, our text was Romans 3:9-20. I titled the sermons, “The Truth About Sin” because Paul comes to a climax in his argument about how both the Jew and the Gentile are all under sin—guilty before God. In short, sin kills and we’ve...

It is well documented that the apostle Paul had a hard ministry. He didn’t exactly have an ivory palace gig where he studied the ancient writings of Moses and churned out volumes of commentaries. Instead, he was God’s chosen instrument for the work of spreading the gospel to the...

God Is Faithful and Righteous

Written by

Yesterday, I preached from Romans 3:1-8 as we continued our series through Romans on Sunday mornings. As Paul turned from the Gentiles to focus on the Jews in chapter 2, he continued that aim in chapter 3 as well as he begins looking at the value of being a Jew. The overarching goal of the opening...

QUIZ: Social Justice

Written by

Today, the idea of social justice is in vogue. If by social justice you mean standing up for the oppressed, opposing personal racism, and promoting a culture in the home, church, and society where women and men can flourish within their God-given roles. However, that is not all that the social...

The Need for Clarity on Complementarianism

Years ago, the evangelical world was abuzz with controversy over inerrancy. This was especially true within the Southern Baptist Convention. You could ask two different people if they believed in the inerrancy of Scripture, and while both answered “yes”—both of them when pressed...

Because I’m a Christian
