Power Through Submission

April 25, 2012

Power Through Submission Many theologians have remarked that Scripture begins with a wedding. But the happy beginning quickly turns to divorce. God pursues, but when they are confronted, Adam and Eve mumble excuses, blame each other, and flee. This month we have noted how John portrays Christ’s coming as a grand drama of a "new creation"...

Gospel Conduct: Submission to Authority

March 25, 2015

Gospel Conduct: Submission to Authority God is sovereign over all. “The kings of the earth belong to God; he is greatly exalted” (Ps. 47:9). “Who should not fear you, King of the nations? This is your due. Among all the wise leaders of the nations and in all their kingdoms, there is no one like you” (Jer. 10:7). “His dominion is an everlasting...

Practice: Mutual and Wifely Submission

January 24, 2018

Practice: Mutual and Wifely Submission The idea that wives should submit to their husbands is controversial and countercultural in our day. People think it implies that women are somehow inferior to men, or that the Bible endorses male abuse of power. But that’s not what Scripture means at all! The Word is quite clear that both men and women...

What Kind of Music Does God Prefer?

July 27, 2017

What Kind of Music Does God Prefer? The term worship wars described the conflict many churches experienced with worship style. It might be more accurate to describe these disagreements as music wars, since they mainly had to do with musical style. The worship wars may have died down, but our differences remain. Some people prefer a contemporary...

Silence and the Gospel: Silence in Heaven

June 29, 2018

Silence and the Gospel: Silence in Heaven Singer-songwriter Sandra McCracken believes that “Our Silence Is Music to God’s Ears,” the title of a recent article in Christianity Today. “When I’m quiet,” she admits, “things float up to the surface from the shadow places in my heart that I haven’t wanted to deal with.

The Altar of Incense

October 24, 2019

The Altar of Incense For many of us today, the word “worship” brings to mind praise music. Biblically, however, the concept is much larger. As Old Testament scholar Daniel I. Block expounded recently in Christianity Today: “Scripture clearly demonstrates that the measure of true and acceptable corporate worship is not established by outside...

Obedient to Christ

November 22, 2013

Obedient to Christ A cartoon strip shows two boys meeting on the sidewalk. One boy, holding a menacing dog by the leash, says, “Don’t worry, his bark is worse than his bite.” The other boy, looking worried, replies, “I think I’ll take his bark nonetheless.” Apparently, some in the Corinthian church were making similar claims about Paul—that...

Gates and Doors

March 1, 2020

Gates and Doors If you close your eyes, can you picture the door of your childhood home? Maybe you remember unlatching the gate that led to your backyard? If you returned to these same places today, you might pause—before you walked through—to remember the past. In the ancient near East, a triumphant king or leader entering a walled city...

March 12, 2009

Devotion for March 12, 2009 Interpreting today's passage has been an exercise filled with controversy. Commentators wrangle over "headship" and male-female roles and relationships and how these relate to the value and equality of every person before God.
