Don't Let It Reign

As a young boy, I always hated those Saturdays when it would rain so much that we could not go outside and play. The ignorance of youthfulness blocked my views of rain as a good thing. The apostle Paul in Romans 6:12-13 speaks about reign, not the rain that I hated as a young boy. Over the past two weeks, we have been talking about slavery to sin and freedom from sin thr...

Slavery to Freedom

The ongoing struggles we face each day are a clear reminder of the existing sin in our flesh. Just because God has broken the slave chains of sin does not indicate we, as believers, will no longer struggle with indwelling sin. Paul in Romans 7:20 makes this clear, "But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me."...

Addiction v. Slavery

The pervasive attitude in our culture is to move away from responsibility. This is clearly seen in how we deal with problems in our lives. The common explanation of our bad actions is focused on the word addictions. Addictions are the new way of categorizing our problems. As a biblical counselor, and as a faithful follower of Christ, having a proper vocabulary is key to he...

The Fear of Authority and Submission

One the most common places we see sin manifested is in the areas of authority and submission. It is quite evident that one effect of sin is fear. We live in a pretty scary world, yet the most common command in the Bible is not to fear. We are also afraid of not getting what we feel we deserve. Whether we are talking about the church or the world, we can see that sin has co...

The Pursuit of God

The believer’s life should be lived in the pursuit of knowing God. Many have rightly defined the pursuit of God as the study of theology, also described as the science of God. The term theology has nothing to do with a science per se as we know scientific study. How can a God that is so awesome be measured and tested to give us a science of God? The simple answer is that...

The Miraculous Birth

We are all aware that Christmas is about the remembrance of the birth of Jesus, the Christ Child, but do we reflect on the reason for this miraculous event? Matthew 1:21 says "She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." Here in Matthew, we see that Christmas is about salvation. God sent His one and only Son to be th...

Don't Miss Out on the True Meaning of Christmas

The true meaning of Christmas can be missed because of the influences around us; materialism, a secular culture’s obsession with Santa Clause, and busy schedules can affect us all. In and of themselves these things are not sinful, but they do pull us away from the real meaning of Christmas. If we miss the true meaning of Christmas, we really miss out on the greatest new...
