“Be careful how you treat God, my friends. You may say to yourself, ‘I can sin against God and then, of course, I can repent and go back and find God whenever I want him.’ You try it. And you will sometimes find that not only can you not find God but that you do […]

“This is God!”

“The triune God of Scripture lives! He is not static. He is not lifeless. He is not bored. He is not boring. He is the living God! He is the Father of lights, found of divinity, origin of origins, begetting yet unbegotten, deity prime, the almighty makes of heaven and earth. He is the beloved […]

Peyton Manning and the Man Upstairs

OK, I’ll admit what you may already know…I’m not a Peyton Manning fan. I love his family, I love his commercials, and I recognize the fact that he is one of the best quarterbacks to have ever played the game, but I just don’t like to watch him play. It’s personal preference, it is totally […]

The Beauty of Jesus!

I have quoted this before, but I read these words this morning and was once again reminded of the beauty of Christ. It is no wonder Thomas Manton said, “Jesus Christ is the cabinet in which God’s jewels are kept…” “Put the beauty of ten thousand worlds of paradises, like the Garden of Eden in […]
