Abraham: Faith, Testing, and God’s Faithfulness

July 11, 2012

Abraham: Faith, Testing, and God’s Faithfulness A recent study by the Pew Research Center painted pictures of two very different American fathers. The first is actively involved in his children’s lives, much more than previous generations. The second, however, does not live with his children and is, at best, less involved. This describes...

Jacob: Faith, Wrestling, and God’s Faithfulness

July 21, 2012

Jacob: Faith, Wrestling, and God’s Faithfulness One Saturday last fall, 285 Indian girls chose new names to symbolize a fresh start in life. Gender discrimination is strong in India—sons are much preferred to daughters, leading to female names such as “Nakusa,” meaning “unwanted.” In a special renaming ceremony, girls with such names picked...

Jacob: Faith, Promises, and God’s Faithfulness

July 18, 2012

Jacob: Faith, Promises, and God’s Faithfulness In times of emergency or crisis, human beings have a tendency to bargain with God. “Just get me out of this one, and I’ll go to church.” “Rescue me this time, and I vow to be a better person from here on out.” “I won’t make that mistake again, I promise—please let me off the hook.” As the saying...

Faithfulness and Hospitality

June 18, 2017

Faithfulness and Hospitality The Letters of John have a kind of telescopic effect, each letter focusing further in. First John addresses the general Christian community, 2 John addresses a particular church and its concerns, and 3 John addresses an individual leader named Gaius.

From Courage to Faith

May 11, 2014

From Courage to Faith Charles Spurgeon called faith “the hand that grasps.” The book of Hebrews describes it as assurance of what is unseen. But if you had asked Gideon to define faith, he probably would have said that faith is the confidence that God is greater than we are. Gideon wrestled with fear, but his greatest struggle was in the...

Faith, Hope, and Love

October 22, 2018

Faith, Hope, and Love As one Christian teacher put it, the Bible tells us “what is true” and then tells us “what to do.” Theology is never an abstraction or mental exercise; it always includes an application to our lives. That is also true for the book of Hebrews. Having laid out the great truth of Christ’s priesthood, sacrifice, and new...

Faithful For Christ

November 7, 2014

Faithful For Christ In school, a true test of a child’s behavior happens when the teacher steps out of the classroom. Before leaving, the teacher typically issues a stern warning to the class to behave while he or she was gone. Inevitably, however, the moment the door closes, students began doing things they wouldn’t imagine doing if teacher...

By Faith Alone

January 23, 2020

By Faith Alone One of the major reformers of Christianity was the German monk Martin Luther. Before he posted his 95 Theses on the church doors in 1517, protesting the church’s corruption, Luther wrestled with his own salvation. He was tormented by his own sinfulness, God’s judgment, and the way to salvation. While searching for answers,...
