What is Lent?

The current public image of Christianity is a happy, happy one complete with the promise that if you become a Christian, life will always go well for you. Even those who don't subscribe to the crassness of the health and wealth gospel (if you give God money He will give you back much more), are shocked if someone in the family gets sick or loses their job. Any disappointme...

Be Like God

I had a professor in college who had equipped himself with a substantial vocabulary. His lectures were peppered with words that were new to me.

A sovereign and merciful God causes "all things to work together for our good"(Romans 8:28), meaning that a mixture of things that bring delight along with things that brin...

A Pig Pen Thanksgiving

A woman was visiting some people who lived on a farm when she noticed a pig limping in the backyard with a wooden leg. She asked the farmer, "What happened to the pig?" The farmer said, "Oh, Betsy is a wonderful pig. One night the house caught fire and she oinked so loud she woke us and we got the fire truck here in time to save the house." The woman said, "That's really s...

There’s Nothing Else God Can Do

This week we return to the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus. It's an intriguing parable, mainly because of the description of the afterlife. Virtually any time you hear a sermon on this parable, it's about Hell. To be sure, Jesus does pull the curtain back a little to give us a quick peek at life beyond the grave. But the point of this story isn't necessarily to describ...
