How Should We Think About 2020?

One of the most common things you heard in the last days of 2020 was the glee of being done with that horrid year. 2020 wasa trip. But was it really? When you are thinking about something you have to work hard to think about it rightly;thinking can go wrong on so many levels. You can think about things with the wrong information or with a lack of information. You can thi...

How Exactly is Jesus Reigning As King? (Or is Pastor Jay a Closet Postmillennial)

This last Sunday I sought to pound home the kingship of Jesus. Psalm 72 brought us into David's prayer for his son Solomon who would soon ascend to the throne. But there was another king that David was more interested in. As great at Solomon was, there was no way he would fulfill the expansive and universal reign that David spoke of, nor display the personal characterist...

If It Were Not So

I have always been intrigued by something Jesus said in his upper room discourse found in John 13-16. In chapter 14 he says; John 14:2 "In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.

The question went something like this, "Verse 22 says that the elect people of God will be in the Tribulation. ...

Sovereignty and Urgency

As finite creatures made by an infinite Creator, paradoxes are something we have to come to grips with. Being an infinite God means you do thingsdifferently. In what way? I have no idea. Being finite excludes the possibility that I can understand what it is like to be infinite. It is like asking a Dixie cup what it feels like to hold the ocean. Therefore, we are told t...

Christmas Prepares Us For The Second Coming

You have probably heard people say "keep your head on a swivel." It's a picturesque way of saying you need to be alert and aware of what is going on all around you. That's good advice for the Christian, not just in the daily grind, but also regarding the big picture of life and worldview. Christians are those who are constantly looking back and constantly looking forward...

4 Ways to Boldness

The apostle Paul was promised a life of suffering, and God delivered on that promise. Few have ever lived such a hard life. Much of what made it so hard was the uncertainty of what would hit him around the next corner. It was like being blindfolded at the receiving end of a dodgeball game where anything was allowed to be thrown. Would the next thing be a rotten tomato or...

Quality over quantity

Quality is a great salesman word. We have all learned the hard way that getting more of something that is only going to go bad or break doesn't make for a good deal. Quality is of first importance because something of quality is going to last, it is going to fulfill its purpose, and it is going to be a profitable investment. If you can get quality and quantity then you h...
