Into the Waves

Andrea Sanborn: “For those of us who take our Christian faith seriously, it feels like an ocean of change is sweeping over us, undermining the ground we stand on, leaving us uncomfortably balancing on the hard knobs of truths that look naive at best, and bigoted at worst, surrounded as we are by the powerful cultural tide.”

Should I Command Healing in Jesus’ Name or Ask for It?

In this bit from Stand To Reason, Greg Koukl answers a timely question: Should I command healing in Jesus’ name or ask for it?

Unwrapping Our Expectations

Amber Thiessen writes about unfair expectations for a new year. “For those of us who take our Christian faith seriously, it feels like an ocean of change is sweeping over us, undermining the ground we stand on, leaving us uncomfortably balancing on the hard knobs of truths that look naive at best, and bigoted at worst, surrounded as we are by the powerful cultural tide.”

Immediate Grace

James Williams is also reflecting on the beginning of a new year. “You’re not sure where the year will take you or what direction you should go. You don’t know what lurks in the darkness ahead or what dangers you’ll face. You can only see immediately in front of you and the choices that need to be made today.”

Book Short: Once Upon a Wardrobe

I stumbled upon the novel Once Upon a Wardrobe—a fictionalized account of the meaning behind C.S. Lewis’ Narnia books—and thoroughly enjoyed it. The theology may be imperfect and the story a wee bit corny at times, but it was still an enjoyable read for anyone who has appreciated The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and the series that followed it.

Coram Deo

Have you ever wondered what Coram Deo means (as R.C. Sproul often used it)? This wonderful little video from Ligonier explains.

Flashback: Reveling in Wrath

Nothing but his kind and gracious hand of restraint keeps humanity from falling deeper and deeper into the darkest depravity. Without God’s active restraint, humanity would accept, practice, and rejoice in every kind of evil.

The first lesson for a child should be concerning his mother’s God. Teach him what you will, if he learn not the fear of the Lord, he will perish for lack of knowledge. —Charles Spurgeon
