Essentials for Christian Growth – Part 1 (October 26, 2010)

The birth of our firstborn child was an exciting time. His birth opened up a new world to us, as this little infant became an integral part of our lives. Before long, the novelty wore off as it became obvious that it was necessary to settle down into a daily routinetaking care of this infant to ensure he grew up properly. What's true in the physical realm is also true in ...

The Importance of the Gospel (February 8, 2013)

Apart from the gospel, nothing else matters. Don't read that statement and make the assumption that I am just using hyperbole. I am not. No human achievement of any kind will matter when you stand before God. The only thing that will matter is who is going to pay for your sins. It will either be youby spending eternity in the everlasting torment of hell, away from t...

Should Pastors Teach the Doctrine of Election? (February 18, 2013)

As I write this blog, I am in the country of Honduras, having just finished speaking at a Bible conference. For the last several days I have been teaching verse by verse through Romans chapters 9-11 about God's righteousness in His dealings with Israel. Among the many issues taught by the Apostle Paul in these chapters is the sovereignty of God in electing some to salvati...

What About Those Who Have Never Heard the Gospel? (March 26, 2013)

When I was 18 years old, somebody told me about Jesus Christ and the message of salvation. I am so grateful that this person loved me enough to tell me that I was a sinner and needed to be saved. But there are millions of people who have never heard the gospel, and countless others who have lived and died without ever knowing the meaning of Christ's death. What about them?...

How Did Christ Become Sin for Us? (July 11, 2013)

Sometime back a friend asked the following question: "2 Corinthians 5:21 says:"He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."So does this mean that Christ gave up His holiness at the cross? How could this be if God is inherently holy?" This is a very significant question, so let me pass along the answer...

Responding to Laws We Don’t Like (July 13, 2016)

Sometime back a Christian friend of mine received a traffic citation for not wearing his seat belt when driving his car. He was incensed, giving the usual complaints about the enforcement of such safety laws as a waste of law enforcement's time ("they should be catching true bad guys instead of harassing fathers taking their children to the park") and being a violation of ...

Encouragement (December 16, 2016)

Recently, I received a letter from a man, asking for some biblical guidance in the area of encouragement. Not only was he interested in finding out the meaning of encouragement, but he also desired some practical advice on how to give encouragement and how to receive it. He wondered if the reason some Christians are so reluctant to offer an encouraging compliment is becaus...

Love is not Rude (August 28, 2017)

Many years ago, the Irish play writer, George Bernard Shaw, wrote that "Christianity might be a good thing if anyone ever tried it."Now, Bernard Shaw's sarcastic criticism of Christians may disturb some of us, but in being cynical he actually makes a valid point, and that is that our faith in Christ is to be lived out and practiced; that the truths of Christianity that we ...

Spiritual Growth (December 13, 2019)

Nothing is more important for a believer in Christ than to be growing spiritually. After all, spiritual growth is nothing more than being conformed to the image of Christ, which, according to Romans 8:29 is God's ultimate plan for our lives. Although God has predestined that all Christians will be Christlike in glory, He has commanded us to grow spiritually while w...
