Trinitarian Missions

Understanding the Trinity is foundational for Christian mission. The basis for all mission inevitably originates in, and flows from the triune God himself. 1 John 4:8 states that God is love. It doesn’t say that God loves, though He does, or that God is loving, though He is. John doesn’t refer to the love of […]

Gospel Fluency

The Gospel by nature is news. Good news proclaiming freedom to captives and life to those who are perishing. As Christians we are ambassadors of Christ, charged with proclaiming the good news of the gospel to a lost and dying world. In order to rightly articulate the gospel, it is important for us to explain […]

Participatory Sanctification

Whether you have been a Christian for five days or fifty years, sanctification remains a foundational reality in the life of the believer. Sanctification is the process by which the Holy Spirit conforms a broken sinner to the image of Christ. At the moment of salvation the new believer is made positionally righteous and seated with […]

Book Review: Spectacular Sins and their global purpose in the glory of Christ

If God is real, why does he allow sin? Where was He during the Holocaust? How come He isn’t doing anything about the genocide in Darfur? Common questions and legitimate concerns. Though these travasties are not directly addressed in this book, by looking at specific examples of spectacular sins in Scripture, John Piper shows the […]

We are the curators of Christ

Christian, behold your divine calling.. “We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves” [2 Corinthians 4:7, NLT]. Wait….we’re containers?! (sounds glamorous). Paul describes an otherwise panoramic view of the Christian […]

Stiff-arming God when we need Him most

Even though I have been saved to new life, justified by the blood of Christ, and am currently being sanctified by the Holy Spirit, I still sin. I don’t want to, but I still do it anyway. If I were to be brutally honest with myself, I would have to admit that at times I […]

The Purpose of the Plagues – Part 3

This is the final instalment in a three part series on how God confronts idols so that He might be exalted high above false gods. In Part 1 and Part 2 I discussed how God directly confronts the idols of Egypt via plagues 1 through 8. Through plagues 9 and 10, we see God’s purpose […]

The Purpose of the Plagues – Part 2

In the previous post I addressed the first four plagues and how God used them to expose the reality of the false gods of Egypt. In doing so He exalted Himself above all other gods in a effort to draw all men, including the Egyptians, to Himself. This same pattern holds true as we look […]
