Living Sacrifice

Paul is at his point of trying to move the people from embracing good theology to doxology. If your Christianity doesn’t change how you do life then your Christianity is nothing because Christianity is not merely subscribing to a set of right doctrines but submitting to a living Savior. How is God after the worship […]

From Theology to Doxology

Theology has a purpose: to move us to doxology, to the worship of our heads, our hearts, and our bodies, so that our entire existence is one great offering of worship to our God who sought us, caught us, and bought us. We must worship with our heads and our hearts. What we believe and how […]

God who keeps His Promises

In Romans 11, Paul brings himself as an example to the readers that God is not done with his people, how he became a disciple of Christ. Do you feel that you are the only one left at times, seeking to be a light in a world that’s dark? God reminds us that he has not […]

Missionaries sent by a Missionary God

When you hear the word missionary what comes to mind? Do you think of the cults in the neighborhood? Those who leave one nation to go to another to share the gospel? Everybody who knows Jesus is commissioned at salvation as missionary disciple makers. We have the same Holy Spirit that the apostles had. We are […]

The Uncut Truth About Good People

One of the biggest lies believed across the world is that good people go to heaven. So what is the truth? Good people are self-righteous. The Gentiles found righteousness by faith in Jesus whereas the Jews did not because they were trusting in their own righteousness- self- righteousness. They blended their ethnicity, performance, and privilege and […]

God Chooses

Biblical election is God choosing from the foundation of the world a people that would be his own from every tribe, tongue and nation, choosing not because of us, but in spite of us – Grace. There are a couple of misconceptions when it comes to biblical election. First there is the belief that believing in […]

How to see things RIGHT when everything seems WRONG

Apart from the lens of the gospel, suffering can be the cause of the crisis of faith. Not just the experience of persecution for following Christ, but also just from the suffering from living in a fallen world. The enemy wants to derail us with doubt, steal our joy, and ultimately walk away from the […]

The Real Deal Jesus

Where is Jesus? It’s quite possible that the real Jesus has been lost in a packed scene of cultural Christianity, of religiosity, of church-y-ness. The real Jesus is not a genie in the bottle. He’s not a deal maker. He’s not a pet issue Jesus. He did not come so that we can use or leverage […]

Beautifully Broken

God took this valuable treasure of the gospel and put it into broken people with cracks, limitations, and short comings. Why would he do that? To show off himself, to display his infinite power. The power is not in the vessel, but in the potter, the one who deposits the treasure. Our problem is that […]

Life in the Spirit

Do we try to live the Christian life in our own power? The power for joining the life long battle against sin is found in the Holy Spirit, and there are four ways that we experience the life in the Spirit. We first have been set free to follow the Savior.  God had to take matters into his […]
