We Need More Knowledge, Not Less

  • 27 August 2015

Knowledge should lead to worship. The true knowledge of God will result not in our being puffed up with conceit at how knowledgeable we are, but in our falling on our faces before God in sheer wonder and crying, “O the depths of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!” Whenever our knowledge becomes dry or leaves us cold, something has gone wrong. For whenever Christ opens the Scriptures to us and we learn from him, our heart should be aglow within us. The more we know God the more we should love him.

But do you love Him?

  • 8 July 2015

One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after:

to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.
(Psalm 27:4)

Looking for God

  • 25 May 2015

When a Russian cosmonaut returned from space and reported that he had not found God, C. S. Lewis responded that this was like Hamlet going into the attic of his castle looking for Shakespeare. If there is a God, he wouldn’t be another object in the universe that could be put in a lab and analyzed with empirical methods. He would relate to us the way a playwright relates to the characters in his play. We (characters) might be able to know quite a lot about the playwright, but only to the degree the author chooses to put information about himself in the play.

How Paul interpreted Jesus

  • 20 May 2015

Matt Perman:
 
“One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven and come, follow me” (Luke 18:22).

Is this something that God commands every Christian to do?

Many are puzzled by that question, because if we say “yes,” it immediately seems impractical. On the other hand, if we say “no,” we seem to be diminishing the force of Jesus’ command.

What was the Purpose of the OT Tabernacle?

  • 4 May 2015

Sam Storms provides 3 reasons for the Tabernacle:

First, the exquisite construction of the tabernacle and the aesthetic perfection of its furnishings and the intricate design sewn into the embroidered material, together with the veil and the gold and the variety of colors throughout were all designed to serve as a visual sermon declaring the beauty of God. Everything in the tabernacle and later in the Temple pointed to the glory and grandeur and splendor of God.

Living a Successful Life

  • 8 April 2015

What does it mean to successful?

That is a vital question for anyone to ask – one that determines a person’s priorities and direction in life.

Whether you are a pastor, an accountant, a school teacher, a stay-at-home mom, an office manager, a construction worker, an engineer, or any other occupation – if you are a believer in Jesus Christ – this question pertains to you. What does it mean to be successful?

What does true success look like, not in terms of getting a new promotion or a raise, but in the highest and loftiest sense of that word?
