The Beauty of Christ

It is the very definition of an understatement to say that we have scratched the surface of how wide, how long, how high and how deep the love of Christ is! The love of Christ surpasses knowledge! The same can be said about the beauty of Christ. How beautiful is Jesus to the eyes of […]

Listen, Learn, Lament and Live

Let me remind you of Pastor John’s helpful application of Ephesians 2:11-22 and add one more ‘L’ to the list. In light of the work of Christ which has killed the hostility between us and God as well as between us and one another, it has reconciled us both vertically and horizontally. We are encouraged […]

Remembering Our Former Condition

As we march our way through Ephesians 2, Paul is not done with calling us to remember our former condition. This past Sunday we recalled our former condition of being spiritually dead and as we dig into 2:11-22 we will see our former condition of not being in a covenant relationship with God just like […]

The Ephesian’s Faith

Why did Paul thank God for the Ephesian’s faith in Christ and their love towards the saints? Pastor Toph mentioned a book by D.A. Carson called Praying With Paul: A Call to Spiritual Reformation which gives us a great answer. He writes,” Because God is sovereign, Paul offers thanksgiving for God’s intervening, sovereign grace in the lives […]

Wonderful God-Centered Prayer

On Sunday we will hear Pastor Toph preach from a passage of Scripture that I encourage you to hide in your heart through memorization. It is prayer that by God’s grace should be found on every believer’s lips both personally and corporately for the body of Christ. Think about what Paul asked the Father to […]

Our Adoption Is Guaranteed

I can understand Isaiah 1:2 a little more now as a parent. “Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth; for the LORD has spoken. Children I have reared and brought up, but they have rebelled against me.” I can imagine the utter shock and pain that would come from the following scenario — We […]

Kingship Belongs to the Lord

All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you. For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations. Psalm 22:27, 28 There were so many good things to highlight from Pastor Dieudonné’s message this past Sunday. To […]

What is The Profit of Our Keeping God’s Charge

Here are grievous words spoken by the LORD our God … You have said, ‘It is vain to serve God. What is the profit of our keeping his charge.’ (Malachi 3:14) Jubilee … when we seek to imitate the world … are we not speaking those same words with our lives. Are we not proclaiming […]

God’s Bigger Story

I wonder what you are hearing in this series from Malachi as the Lord speaks to us through his servants. I hope that you are being drawn into the arms of the LORD of hosts as he speaks of a bigger story… a story full of life and peace… a place where true instruction abounds… […]

Yahweh Condemns Unfaithfulness

As Pastor Dieudonne was preaching on Yahweh’s Faithfulness, Sunday August 20th, I was reminded of Acts 2:37, where the congregation of Jews that Peter preached to at Pentecost was cut to the heart upon the hearing of the word. Hebrews 4:12 tells us, “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any […]

The Inseparability of the Gospel and Love

In 1 John, the apostle John has greatly emphasized the inseparability of the Gospel and love. Those who have been redeemed by the Gospel, of necessity, love others. The gospel makes men others-centered, not self-centered. For John, “We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. Whoever does […]

Between the Ascension of Christ and His Return

First, I want to give God public thanks for all of the encouragement I received thi summer. So many of you have let me know that you were praying for the Lord to meet us in this wonderful letter. There are not too many things better than knowing how the body supports one another. There […]
