The Best Wine From the Vine

This is to My Father’s glory that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples. As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. John 15:8-9

You might be familiar with John 15. It is Jesus’ description of Himself as the Vine and believers in Him as branches – it is about His love, and how all that we do now as believers in Him – how we grow – “stems” from the supply of His love.

How to Help People Stricken By QAnon?

My letter was prompted by something posted by my relative on Facebook… The posting on Facebook was not only baseless and offensive, it was degrading… Most troubling is that I consider this individual a Christian and someone who shares my faith.

A Passion to Right the World, Part 3

In discussing God’s justice and the importance of Christian involvement in society, I want to make a brief comment on the phrase “social justice” that has become controversial recently…

A Passion to Right the World, Part 2

I will be speaking more about justice this Sunday. Coming back to a recent Sunday School class, and the question about  “equity” – the difference between equality and equity is a little hard to work out, isn’t it?

A Passion to Right the World

In a recent Sunday School class, I used the word “equity” and was asked about its meaning. The larger question being discussed was the position or practice of our church on justice issues in society. How much our own ministry should be or will be influenced by concerns about what is happening in our society?

Spiritual Power for the Crushing Contradictions

“As to why [God works this way] we literally know nothing. But this much is certain, that he who pays attention to things at large and observes what goes on around him, can only and alone hold on to the wisdom and goodness of God by faith.”

Theologian Abraham Kuyper, 1837-1920

His Best for Our Worst

Do we grasp that we are His appointed representatives, bearing His name for the sake of His kingdom? How do my sins, my decisions or my plans, effect the spiritual battle in which the church is now engaged? What is my working view of our church fellowship’s significance?

Finally Treating God as God

I cannot really make up for what I have done… What should we do? …In his book, Prayer, Tim Keller helpfully notes that prayer is the way we know God, the way we finally treat God as God…

Reflection, Pardon, and Renewal

…during Lent, Psalm 51 helps us examine ourselves and consider if there is anything we can do (or need to stop doing). Are the choices that I have made – or that I am making – building up the church?
