Great is God’s Faithfulness

Gratitude for God’s enduring faithfulness and unwavering compassion should be a central theme during Thanksgiving—reminding us to appreciate and be thankful for the good things we have. But it shouldn’t stop there.

For believers, it is our exclusive right and privilege to praise God sincerely and superlatively for His unending faithfulness.

There are four specific ways we can see how God is always and ever faithful.

Nov 16, 2023, Christian Living

For the believer, a posture of thanksgiving isn’t confined to the month of November—but it’s the perfect time to reset our hearts toward the spiritual discipline of gratitude. In Scripture, we’re instructed to give thanks in all circumstances.

But beyond God’s provision of our daily needs, several motivations for gratitude are uniquely Christian. See how—and why—we should give thanks for the gospel, for the church, and in seasons of suffering.

Sola Fide: Justification by Faith Alone

Justification is the gracious act—not a process—of God in which God declares [pronounces] righteous the sinner who believes on Jesus. This great doctrine is under attack from the most unsuspected sources—even those who outwardly espouse it.

The glorious doctrine of justification by faith is one of the fundamentals of the faith that was championed by Martin Luther and sparked the Protestant Reformation.

The Next Step

Sep 28, 2023, Christian Living

Is your little faith what’s keeping you from taking that next step?

God doesn’t always show you what He wants you to do, nor does He give you all the answers in advance. Many times, He wants you to step out in faith, and go forward.

Delight Yourself in the Lord

Aug 31, 2023, Christian Living

“Delight thyself also in the LORD: and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” Psalm 37:4

This verse puzzled me for a long time. What exactly is “delighting” in the Lord? And if I’m delighting in the Lord, then will all my desires be fulfilled? Taking this verse stand-alone sounds a lot like “name it, claim it” theology, and we know that type of false teaching doesn’t square with the Bible.

So what does Psalm 37:4 really say?

Anchored in the Word of God

What are some words that come to mind when you hear the word anchored? I’ve thought of some synonyms: steadfast, stable, grounded, steady, secure, firm, unwavering, and sure. And I can’t think of a better place to find those things for life than in God’s Word.

Intentionally or not, you are a theologian. But what do we mean by that?

From “Vacation Mode” to Kingdom Mindset: Balancing Rest and Obedience

May 26, 2023, Christian Living

It’s easy to get wrapped up in the allure of vacation mode—enjoying the change of pace, the peace, and the relaxation. The thought of returning to work, school, busyness, messiness, and the general monotonous aspects of life can easily become a dread.

But as Christians, it’s important to remember that our ultimate purpose in life is not to follow after temporary pleasures or seek comfort and relaxation.
