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

“Preach the gospel – and if necessary use words.” This pithy quote by St. Francis of Assisi has captured the hearts and minds of many. The sentiment sounds right and may even feel right but fails, in the final analysis, to do justice to the gospel. Yes, the gospel is meant to be...

Hope for a Despairing Ogress

Written by

My daughter hijacks the auxiliary cord every time she gets in my minivan.   Recently, she has been listening to “I Know It’s Today” from Shrek The Musical.  And, I hate to say it, but listening to it has reminded me I am a lot more like Fiona than a Disney princess,...

Our Miserably Tarnished Version of Hospitality

Written by

The church’s focus on bringing the world into the pulpit and pew has had its effect on the home and how we view hospitality. We have set our gaze to the world for our cue to exhibit a miserably tarnished version of hospitality. Like the church, we have become entertainers in our homes. I know...

Dear Pastor Watch Your Life and Doctrine

Written by

As a young pastor, I’ve always been drawn to Paul’s words in 2 Timothy 4:6-8 as he comes to the end of both his ministry and life:

For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I...

Christians Live to Please God Alone

Do you ever read a verse in the Bible and associate it with a particular time in your life? I read certain verses, and I immediately picture myself among a circle of teenagers memorizing Scripture for Sunday school under the encouragement of godly teachers.
