The Gift of Uncertainty

We’re 9 days into the new year. Today, the excitement has largely worn off. Truth be told, the excitement isn’t what it used to be, say, five years ago. Five or six years ago, I’d have been enthusiastically looking for a “word” for the year and babbling about seasonal spiritual alignment—or something like that. Thank... Continue Reading →

The Devil Loves to Fish in Troubled Waters

There are a number of reasons why Christians should strive for contentment in their lives. In The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment, Jeremiah Burroughs presents ten reasons why contentment is to be desired and longed for by believers.

It didn't matter if they were saved, or if they lived lives that corresponded with the knowledge they had—all they had to do was... Continue Reading →

Thank God for His Work in Nigeria

"Describe the overall condition of the church in Nigeria. Be honest without sounding overly critical." I read these words a few weeks ago and haven't been able to forget them. This is because it is normal to depict the state of Christianity in Nigeria in a bad light (especially if one says one is Reformed).... Continue Reading →
