Were You Preaching At Me?

One of my favorite preachers told how he would reply when someone would come out of the audience after services and ask him, "Were you preaching at me?" He said he would ask them, "Well, did it apply to you?" In other words, if what he taught applied to them, then, yes, he was preaching at them. Not that he had targeted them, but that if they perceived that what he was teaching was targeting them then it must have been something they needed to hear and to which they need to respond. When I … [Read more...]

A New Year Prayer

https://youtu.be/m_2vLSkvENI Psalm 31 is a beautiful expression of trust in God. David expresses his trust in God even in times of terrible trouble. He knew that, through trust in God’s provision and protection, that he would be triumphant over any trial. One commentator outlines Psalm 31 as the four seasons of the year.* Autumn (Ps. 31:1-8), “with its winds and gathering clouds, yet having sunlight and a golden fruitage even though the breath of death is everywhere.” Winter (Ps. … [Read more...]

That Which Never Changes

Regarding those things which are bound: We know that it cannot be the customs of the early church because they have changed over the course of years and culture. We know that it cannot be restricted to the expression of law … [Read more...]

People Who Have Forgotten How To Blush

When the prophet Jeremiah wrote about the condition of his people, and told them why God was allowing them to be taken into captivity, he said it was because they had forgotten how to blush (Jer. 6:15). All of the calamity that was going to be poured out on them by the armies from the north (i.e. Babylon) was because of their rebellion against God. The list of their transgressions was long and ugly. In addition to their idolatry, they were guilty of all manner of gross immorality. Jeremiah … [Read more...]
