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

The Effects of Leaven

Written by

Galatians 5:7–9, “You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? 8 This persuasion is not from him who calls you. 9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump.” Returning again to the topic of circumcision (Gal. 5:1–12) might seem to be a strange...

What Really Counts

Written by

O Sweetest Exchange in Christ Alone

Written by

Emblems of the Infinite King by J. Ryan Lister

Written by

From time to time, I enjoy a good children’s book. There’s something about taking a break from my usual theologically robust reading schedule and immersing myself into a book designed to inspire and educate kids. J. Ryan Lister’s book is targeted to pre-teens and teens, but I...

The Yoke that Gives Us Freedom

Written by

Galatians 5:1, “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” Freedom is certainly a relevant word in our time. It evokes images of armed soldiers fighting with valor and a flag. Or perhaps of people marching to the town square...

The glory of “God with us” shines brightest when lit beneath the things most seemingly God-abandoned. That is why I love Advent. Advent has the power to turn over the inconceivable to discover the unimaginable. I especially love preaching Advent. No literary work explains my passion for...

There’s something in us that discounts our current circumstances: our lives, our location, our role, our life. We look at others and want more. It’s sin, of course, a direct violation of the tenth word: You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your...
