1 John: Living the Lordship of Christ



Marriage Bliss

I have been to my share of weddings, and a common observation is the smiling faces of the bride and groom.  There is a joy in this celebration. A second observations comes 3 to 6 months after the wedding.  The sanctifying adjustment of not just focusing on yourself, but this one-flesh union with your spouse.  The Lord reveals selfishness that the new husband and wife weren’t even aware of when they were single.  I am thankful this selfishness is completely taken care of in that first year of marriage. Of course we know this is not the case.  I know the Lord continues to reveal areas where I am selfish toward Cinda.  Thankfully, for Cinda and for me, the Lord has grown me from where I was during that first year of marriage…..but there is still work to be done, work I am glad to undertake, because I want to have the attitude of Christ more and more. I encourage you to read Philippians 2:1-8. Think deeply on what this text means; what the implications are for you; thank the Lord for areas where you have grown in living like this; ask Him to reveal areas where you still need to grow and to give you this victory; ask the Lord to change your desires to always think of others more highly than yourself. There is some low hanging fruit in all of our lives where we can take some immediate steps.  Perhaps you may recognize some in this video:... read more

Encouraging Witnesses at Bethel

I have been greatly encouraged recently in conversations with several folks at Bethel.  They have shared with me trials which are significant and ongoing.  They have shared their struggle to battle against discouragement, and their thoughts, and their temptations.  They have also shared with me how they continually have been clinging to Jesus Christ and to God’s Word in the midst of this ongoing trial…..especially to keep their thinking, and their emotions set upon what is true and what is profitable. When they wonder how they will endure in the trial over the next week, and month, and perhaps longer, they have become weary.  They have been an encouragement to me because in their weariness they choose to set their mind on Scripture- to allow the Word of God to do what God promises it will do, “restore their soul” and “rejoice their heart”, Psalm 19:7-8.  And God faithfully continues to give them the strength for that day. They have been for me a picture of the “great cloud of witnesses” that the author of Hebrews speaks of in Hebrews 12:1-2.  And they are right here among us!  Let us be in prayer for each other, caring for each other, loving each other, as we each strive to run our race faithfully. Hebrews 12:1-2, “Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured... read more

I Am an Old-fashioned Christian

By: Tim Challies   I get the books. I read the articles. I see the news. Christianity seems ready to move on. And I realize anew: I am an old-fashioned kind of Christian. I believe in the Bible. I believe that it is clear, complete, sufficient, true, and without error. It is God’s revelation to humanity and demands my full attention and full obedience. I do not expect God to speak to me apart from it. I read, He speaks, I obey. Or I try anyways. Read... read more
