Protection and Security

March 2, 2020

Protection and Security When I was a child, my father installed a deadbolt on the front door of our home. Since at the time it was the safest lock we knew, we felt very well-protected!

March 19, 2020

God’s Law on the Doorframes As an enslaved 13-year-old, future abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass trusted in Christ for salvation. One biographer observed: “Frederick always hungered for knowledge, but after his conversion he had an insatiable desire to read and understand the Bible.” At that time, slaves were not allowed to read, much...

Suffering Outside the Gate

March 23, 2020

Suffering Outside the Gate Christians use the term good news to refer to the gospel. We celebrate the good and life-changing news found in the message of salvation given through Jesus Christ. But good doesn’t equal easy. While Christ’s death purchased our redemption and His resurrection guaranteed our eternal future, we are wrong to think...

Promised Presence

December 24, 2017

Promised Presence In today’s technological age, family members can now easily stay in touch with each other even when they are separated by thousands of miles. Through WhatsApp, Skype, iMessage, and more, distance no longer needs to keep people from talking and seeing one another. When Jesus announced to His disciples that He would be departing...

Living under the Shepherd

October 31, 2018

Living under the Shepherd Scotland has a population of some 5.3 million people—and 6.5 to 7 million sheep! Sheep farmers understand the importance of caring for their flock in all sorts of terrain and weather conditions. That image of a watchful shepherd runs throughout our passage. The leaders of the church are called to “keep watch over...

A Study in Contrasts

June 7, 2017

A Study in Contrasts The use of contrasts can be a powerful artistic technique. By bringing together two sharply different colors or by juxtaposing two radically opposite images, the artist can jolt the viewer into paying attention, and a writer can alert a reader to key point. The use of contrasts works in our text today as well. Yesterday’s...

Faith that Overcomes

June 14, 2017

Faith that Overcomes Both the Gospel of John and 1 John make use of wordplay in the original Greek language that is not always easy to render in English. In today’s reading, the proper sense of the passage is retained in English, but the more subtle word connections might be missed. In verses 4 and 5, the verb “overcome” (nikon) is related...

How to Build a Better Leader

July 12, 2017

How to Build a Better Leader Writing in the Harvard Business Review, Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic suggested when it comes to leadership success, self-confidence is overrated.
