New Life in Christ!

“While we continue to be influenced by our past life, ‘in the flesh,’ it is no longer the dominating influence in our present existence.  We are no longer in the flesh, but in the Spirit (Rom. 8:9).  Christ’s past (if we may so speak) is now dominant.  Our past is a past ‘in Adam'; our […]

Living for the Glory of God!

“When we write, perform, or listen to good music, we are being invited into the life of the triune God, who is the supreme harmony of all. When we write poetry or immerse ourselves in a novel or watch a good movie, our heart and mind can be enlarged so that we have greater capacity […]

Reconciliation and the Character of God

“Reconciliation teaches us something remarkable about the character of God. He befriends His enemies. He loves those who hate Him. He offers peace to those who have waged war against Him. Although He is the one who has been wronged, He is the one who makes all things right. He does all this while the […]

“Channels of Adoration and Shafts of Glory”

Recently I was reading a book that quoted from CS Lewis’ book Letters to Malcolm quite a lot. This week I’ve been reading it and chapter 17 alone is worth the price of the book! Let me quote from Lewis on the subject of worship and adoration, “You first taught me the great principle ‘Begin […]
