Unlocking the Power of Psalm 103

How often in the Scriptures do we find exactly the answers we are looking for, the encouragement we need, the direction we have lacked? Verses that cause us to lift our eyes heavenward are often the very thing we need to refocus our attention from our own morass to the glory and majesty of our

Armed for Battle

The Roman Empire was one of the most powerful empires in history. Depictions of ancient Rome have lit up the screens of entertainment for decades with productions such as Masada (1981), Gladiator (2000) or even The Chosen (2017–present). From the Gallic wars of Caesar, the speeches of Cicero, monuments such as Hadrian’s Wall or the

Steadfast to the End

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord” (1 Cor. 15:58).

Another Look at Acts 18

I was recently asked to teach on Acts 18. Whenever I am preparing to teach on a biblical text, the first thing I do is read through the text several times, usually using more than one Bible version. I also ask some questions. What was going on at that time? How would the original readers

The pages of Scripture are crammed with the accounts of patriarchs, prophets, kings and ordinary men and women who played extraordinary roles in the unfolding of God’s plans for humanity.

In classic literature, light is often associated with truth, wisdom, correctness, morality, justice and ethics. Darkness, on the other hand, is equated to evil, wickedness, lewdness, corruption,

No More Worthless Offerings

There is a lot of hopelessness in the world today. The people of Israel are reeling as the enemy, Hamas, slaughtered so many loved ones. We watched in horror as unbelievable atrocities were revealed. There is no one unaffected by the war, the increase in anti-Semitism and the increasing numbers of devastated families. Our hearts mourn

The Tests of God

Tests are an inescapable and necessary fact of life. Can you imagine allowing anyone who has not proven that they know the rules of safe driving to have access to our roads as a driver? Or perhaps an even more extreme illustration…Who would allow a surgeon who had not mastered the required anatomy classes to

The Extravagant Love and Mercy of God

The Bible is unique among books. It is not a book, it is the book; not a collection of the words and thoughts of men, but filled with the living words of the Creator of all things. When I became a believer, I read the Bible constantly. I consumed it, I drank it, I couldn’t
