The Impact of Jesus

James Allen Francis said in a sermon, “He was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty. Then for three years He was an itinerant preacher. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family. He […]

Jesus and the Holy Spirit

Abraham Kuyper wrote that “the Church has never sufficiently confessed the influence the Holy Spirit exerted upon the work of Christ.”  He is right!  We take the fact that Jesus was God and somehow think that His Divine nature made Him a man who didn’t struggle with the things with which we struggle; yet, the […]

Mylon LeFevre and More (Of Jesus)!

I was talking to a friend the other day about an old Imperial’s Song, “Praise the Lord” and it got me to thinking about those days when I was first saved.  My dad, our Student Minister, would load up a bus load of students and take us to see the Imperials or Mylon LeFevre.  Anyone […]

Who Is Jesus?

Who is Jesus?  Arturo Azurdia  in his book Spirit Empowered Preaching said, “He is the seed of the woman who will crush the serpent’s head.  He is the ark to rescue the people of God.  He is the holy Angel of Yahweh.  He is the seed of Abraham in whom all the families of the […]

Christ is All!

Last night I preached on Colossians 3:11 and took aim at the words of Paul, “Christ is all.”  In JC Ryle’s book HOLINESS there is a chapter devoted to that one phrase.  It is one of the best chapters I have ever read and in it he said, “He is the High Priest, the Mediator, […]

The Ancient Path is the Ancient of Days!

If you have followed my blog you know that I am in the midst of a study of John’s Gospel on Sunday mornings.  We began the study in January of 2012 and last week I finished the thirteenth chapter.  As I’ve studied John 14:1-7 I am once again amazed at the beauty of the words […]

Christ in the Burning Bush!

I am always enthralled by Moses’ Burning Bush experience with God.  In fact I am enthralled by every theophany we find in the Word of God.  A theophany is a visible manifestation of God.  We see it when God appears to Abraham as a smoking firepot, we see it again with the two angels before […]

One Great Quote!

This is one long sentence, but WoW! what a great quote for our meditation. “That Christ should come from the eternal bosom of his Father to a region of sorrow and death; that God should be manifest in the flesh, the Creator made a creature; that he that was clothed with glory should be wrapped […]

Alpha and Omega

Three times in the last book of the Bible Jesus declares, “I am the Alpha and the Omega…”  Anyone familiar with the Greek alphabet knows that Alpha and Omega represent the first and last letter, but what is Jesus saying?  Jesus is declaring that He stands sovereign over the beginning, the end, and over everything […]

Feb 14, “He is no fool…”

Yesterday I wrote about sports and the danger of idolatry.  Today I want to revisit that and encourage you to think about the significance we place upon sports.  I know men that would find it hard to recite more than five verses in the Bible, but they can tell you every single detail of their […]
