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

Andrew Fuller Friday: Fuller on the Seriousness of Sin

Written by

Or, if sin should be allowed to be your fault, yet, if it were a small offence, an imperfection that might be overlooked, or so slight a matter that you could atone for it by repentance, prayers, or tears, or any effort of your own, there might be less reason for alarm; but neither is this the...

Men, A Plan for Simple but Hard Discipleship

Written by

In the life of Jesus, we see unstained love and faultless meekness, both are expressions of his boundless strength and sovereign power. Never was any man so full of compassion and so bold for truth. His love, kindness, and grace were not the result of moral weakness or passivity. His very life was...

If Christianity can be proved to be a religion that inspires the love of God and man; yea, and the only religion in the world that does so; if it endues the mind of him that embraces it with a principle of justice, meekness, chastity, and goodness, and even gives a tone to the morals of society at...

In parenting seminars, I will often ask dads to estimate how often in a year they tell their children to be careful and safe. Once they settle on an estimated number in their mind, I ask them also to estimate how many times in a year they challenge their children to be courageous, brave, bold, or...

The cross of Christ, instead of issuing in disgrace, is followed with glory. His friends learned to glory in it; yea, and to glory in nothing else: and well they might. It was glorious to see the powers of darkness stripped naked, as it were, to their shame; to see Satan foiled by the woman’s...

Church Planting Hinges on Easter

If Christ was not raised from the dead church planting makes no sense, according to Dayton Hartman. The resurrection is the message that God is victorious over the brokenness of this world. That is why people plant churches. If there was no cure for the brokenness,...

Preaching is Indispensable

Cruciform Warriors Needed

The Christian life doesn’t merely involve spiritual warfare. The Christian life is spiritual warfare. All of the followers of Jesus are soldiers and not civilians (2 Tim 2:3). We must be in constant preparation for spiritual battle and not a spiritual vacation. The Great Commission is not a...
