Worship the Lamb!

Worship the Lamb!

As Christians, how are we to go about this election season? We are to worship the lamb and not the elephant or the donkey. How do we put the elephant/donkey/any political party above the lamb? We think our party is God’s party. We minimize or cover up sins of one party while blowing up the sins of […]

Apostasy?

Apostasy?

What is apostasy? It is the abandoning of one’s profession, not possession, of faith. One may say that they have faith in Jesus, but the other actually possesses genuine faith in their heart. Those who are saved are forever saved, and there is a big difference between professing and possessing faith in Jesus. We can play the […]

Commission Sunday

Commission Sunday

It was a bittersweet gathering for us at Restore Church, as we officially commissioned the St. Clair’s and their team to Cornerstone Church in the northwest side of Detroit, but also Charles Bovan officially became one of the elders at Restore. Pastor Tyler gave us a great charge to be bold, to never shrink back […]

Living Sacrifice

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 […]
