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

Looking Back from Emmaus

Written by

In this post I’ll be briefly looking back from Emmaus into the Old Testament. The Emmaus account is one of my favorite New Testament interludes. In Luke 24:13-32 we read that after Christ’s crucifixion two disciples are walking despondently back to their home in Emmaus. As they walk...

Saved by Grace or Merit?

Written by

Are we saved by Grace or Merit? Or is it a bit of both? The question of whether we’re saved by Grace or Merit didn’t initially enter into my mind when I attended Roman Catholic School as a young boy. Yet during a later period I experienced a dread of attending confession and having to...

Psalm 139

Written by

Every once in a while I’ll hear a particular Bible verse or sets of verses repeated from different sources over one or two days. It is always meaningful to me; that is, the verse is a response to something I’ve been thinking about, or troubling me. I believe this is God’s...

When Elijah Wanted to Die

Written by

There was a time when Elijah wanted to die. God had answered his prayer and defeated the prophets of Baal right in front of him (see 1 Kings 18). The surprising thing is that his reaction to Jezebel’s threat was to run. In a way, that is comforting to me. Even the BIG saints have […]

When I was exploring the New Age and reading a plethora of self-help books (Wayne Dyer, Dale Carnegie etc), I’d occasionally come across the story of David and Goliath. It’s not that these authors actually believed the story, or the Bible for that matter. For them, the David and Goliath...
