Regeneration for Salvation

One of the things that I love about video games is when your character, your avatar, has lots of lives. When you die, you just need to wait for your character to regenerate. Regeneration is new life. Spiritually, our walk with Christ requires that we be regenerated (or born again). But before we go there,... Continue Reading →

Jesus, Fully Man and Fully God

Last week we looked at the doctrine of the Trinity, the Three in One. One God, eternally existent in three Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This week, we want to look a little deeper into the second person in the Trinity, Jesus Christ. The person of Christ had two natures. Jesus is in form... Continue Reading →

The Trinity

We are looking at the foundations of our faith. And after the authority of Scripture, we are going to spend a couple of weeks looking at other foundational pieces of our faith before we get to the topic of salvation. This week I want to look at the topic of the Trinity. Due to limitations... Continue Reading →

The Authority of the Bible

One of the games my family enjoys is Jenga. It is a tower of blocks, three in a row, with the direction of the blocks changing every row. It starts as a solid block, and each person removes a block and moves it to the top. With each block that gets removed, the tower becomes... Continue Reading →

With tens of thousands of different denominations in the United States alone, it doesn’t seem to take much for us to be divided as a people. We choose to separate over theology, philosophy, ethnicity, economics, and many other things. The... Continue Reading →

What is Success?

God told Joshua that He would be with Joshua just as He was with Moses, but there was a caveat, obedience. His success (the success that God had ordained for Israel) was dependent on Joshua being obedient. “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that...

Did God Really Say?

This has been a trick of the Devil since the beginning of humanity is found in Genesis 3. “Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?” Gen... Continue Reading →

The Heart of Christmas is Love

We live in a time when love is seen in so many different ways, and the meaning of the word has been watered down, especially in the English language, where our one word for love has broad meaning. Yet love is something that everyone desires. Everyone wants to be loved by someone. I have even... Continue Reading →
