Sometimes we question it. But Christ has eminently wise reasons for keeping His own in a world of sin and sorrow for a time. What are they? Let us consider some of them.
It can be hard to maintain a thankful spirit in the midst of discouragements and difficulties. Yet we are not only called to this but given what we need to help us.
In the midst of restrictions that keep many people in their houses more than ever, home may be both sanctuary and prison. God’s promised presence is the only true sanctuary.
It is frighteningly possible to cause spiritual harm to others. Even through straightforward actions and words. Even when we don’t mean to. We must avoid it.
Our current crisis shows the limitations of our knowledge and control. If we are humbled in the face of nature, the proper response is to be humble towards the God of nature.
Scripture tells us how Christ reforms His Church. It is not an easy thing; but it is essential and we need it constantly.
The word “godly” has lost its meaning if it is just used to refer to a committed Christian. How does Scripture define it? And how does it carefully distinguish real godliness from its counterfeit?
Many people neglect or treat church government with contempt. But that is a great mistake because (according to Scripture) it is essentially all about Jesus Christ.
This is an urgent biblical priority and necessity for us in the midst of a post-truth culture. Comprehensively loving and embracing the truth means comprehensively defining it.
Church government is a dry topic to many, even distasteful to some. But there is a Christ-centred dimension to it. And, properly understood, it is worth suffering for.
Everything we have has been received. How can we best make use of what we have received for Christ’s glory and kingdom? How do we use them for the good of others?
Is there a greater contradiction than being ungracious about spiritual things? Anything we have received spiritually is only by grace: how should that impact us?
There is much that we can learn from uncertainty if we are taught by Scripture. Hugh Binning draws out the lessons we all need to grasp for our lives, both now and at all times.
Although our culture champions self-love as the ultimate: it will never satisfy. We need to turn to the ultimate self-denying, self-sacrificing love Christ has for His own.
A recent survey gives alarming news about what some evangelicals believe about Christ. How do we know Christ is God and why is it so vital? Read the article for some answers.
