Rooted

There were false teachers troubling the church at Colossae and they were actually pretty skilled politicians. They realized that if they were to be effective in poaching the Colossians from Paul, stealing them from Paul and making them followers of their new teaching, they had to do more than simply attack his message; they also had to attack his ministry. "If we can make the Colossian Christians question...

Affliction in Verse

You may recall last time we considered the opening five verses of Job 1 and we were introduced to Job and his family. We saw them living in contentment and joy together and we noticed there were a number of convictions and habits that were operating in Job’s life that built in some resilience and some strength of character that enabled him, and that will enable him as...

We’ll come back to that passage, but let’s start at the beginning. It’s a great story; I wish I had several hours to unpack it. I just learned that the Twin Lakes Camp told the story of Esther all summer long. We’re going to try to do it in thirty minutes! Chapter 1.

Behold, A Throne

They are the kind of questions children like to ask from the back seat on long journeys, aren’t they? “Where are we going? When will we get there? Who’s going to be there?” Actually, they’re enormously important questions to get answers to, especially when it comes to matters of eternity.

Pslam 119 Not By Bread Alone

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Psalm 119, verses 153 to 160.  And you note, in the very opening words of this portion of Psalm 119 that the psalmist again is dealing with his own affliction and is crying out to God.  How often we encounter this theme in the psalms.  And so we should not be discouraged when we...
