Wonder of Grace!

It is a wonder that God is gracious to sinful men. It is a wonder that man has been given the opportunity to repent and turn to God. It is a wonder that God sets his love upon sinners and even works to save them. In The Sinfulness of Sin, Ralph Venning, Puritan pastor and... Continue Reading →

Knowledge and Christian Maturity

I have always valued knowledge as a Christian. I grew up thinking that the person who answered the most questions in Sunday School or Bible Study was the most matured Christian. 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.

Satan is Subtle and Modest

Many of Satan's suggestions would sound egregious to the Christian who is consciously seeking to obey God's will. So he comes subtly. Never asking for too much at one time. He does this so well that many fall for his wiles, before ever realizing how far they have gone. In the Puritan Classic, The Christian... Continue Reading →

Battling Discouragement

In seasons of much blessings and strength, my friend would often say, "The Christian life is sweet!" Those are the seasons when things don't seem so bad. When he can maintain his habit of daily Bible reading and prayer. When he enjoys the fellowship of the saints so much that his heart would almost burst... Continue Reading →
