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 when I was 8 years old. It was Christmas morning and while running to the living room I saw “it!” The very thing I asked for that year. It was a Hot Wheels Daytona 500 racetrack; you know the one with battery-powered cars! I played with that gift for hours that morning with...

My Book Review Framework

Written by

When I discovered that as a book reviewer I could request all the books I wanted, I knew I was going to be in trouble. At first I tried to read everything that looked interesting, but I’m learning to narrow in on a single category of books. Even within that genre (books written for...

The Blessing of God in Christ

Written by

That All May Honor the Son

Written by

Most Christians can quickly and easily repeat the formula that the  Trinitarian God of the Bible is one God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

And perhaps the most famous verse in all the Bible is John 3:16, which refers to Jesus as God’s Son, sent into the world because of...

Fighting Sin the Right Way

Written by

Romans 8:13 ESV, “For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.”
