  1. 1 Peter 4:7-11 (ESV)

    7 The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. 8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards […]

  2. Romans 12:9-21 (ESV)

    9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13 Contribute to the needs of […]

  3. Good, Hard Work

    Every Christian has been created in Jesus Christ for good, hard work!  This is clear with what Paul says in Eph. 2:10 –   For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.   Paul reinforces this truth in Eph. 4:28 – […]

  4. Godly Attitudes and Actions

    Beloved, we find in Eph. 4:1-3 that the proper posture of a worthy walk is to have an eager readiness to do God’s will.  And as Paul makes clear, this involves embracing godly attitudes (“…with all humility, gentleness, and patience…”), and fulfilling godly actions (“…bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity […]

  5. Preparing for the Lord’s Day

    As we prepare to gather again this coming Lord’s Day, let me encourage you in a few specific ways. First, take advantage of the “order of service” information we include in this newsletter.  Individually, or with family/friends, take some time in the days prior to our Sunday gathering to read through the various Scripture passages […]

  6. Stewarding Technology

    We live in a day in which the use of many forms of technology (smartphones, laptops, tablets, etc.) is as common as breathing.  And breathing is a good thing – as long as what you’re breathing isn’t toxic and destructive!   As believer’s, we need to heed the Holy Spirit’s exhortation – “Look carefully then […]

  7. On Biblical Inerrancy

    As you know, last week’s Shepherds’ Conference focused on the theme of the inerrancy of Scripture.  Ever since the Garden of Eden, when Satan tempted Eve by saying, “did God actually say…?” (Gen. 3:1), the authority and reliability of God’s Word has been under attack.  Satan’s strategy is as simple as it is deadly:  if […]

  8. How to Read the Bible: A Matter of Stewardship

    Following my post in this column last week, I learned of this helpful article (thanks Sharon Lowery!):  Do’s and Don’ts When Reading the Bible.  These are very helpful encouragements, reminding us that more important than simply reading Scripture, is the vital question of how we read Scripture.   Given that “All Scripture is breathed out […]

  9. Beginning a New Year

    The beginning of a new year is a great time to refocus your energies in reading and feeding on God’s Word!  To that end, Ligonier Ministries has put together a helpful list of a variety of Bible reading plans available online.  If you don’t already have a focused approach to the regular reading of Scripture, I encourage […]

  10. God’s Will for Your Life

    What is God’s will for my life?  This honest question is one which Christians often ask, and with good reason.  When God graciously saves and transforms a person, there is a new desire to know and do the will of God.  As God has been pleased to reveal His will in His word, so His […]

  11. The Shepherd of Shepherds

    While there are many metaphors God uses to describe His relationship with His people, one of the more prominent in Scripture is that of a shepherd with his sheep.  Extending from numerous Old Testament references (Gen. 48:15; Ps. 80:1; Is. 40:11; etc.), Jesus is revealed to be the Good Shepherd (Jn. 10:11-16), the Great Shepherd […]

  12. Trustworthy Stewards of God’s Grace

    The Apostle Peter distinctively taught and exemplified the truth that believers must understand their identity, among other things, as stewards of the grace of God in Jesus Christ.  This is the central reality that forms the basis of his exhortations in 1 Pet. 4:7-11.  And of course, to live faithfully as those who are stewards, […]
