Transformed by Incomprehensible Love (Repost)

A husband promises to love and to cherish his wife, but would he keep this promise if his wife was unfaithful? Not so with Christ, who, like Hosea, kept his promise, even to an adulterous Bride: he "loved the church and gave himself up for her."

Jesus the Extreme Street Preacher

Jesus the Extreme Street Preacher

“Think positively, because I'm here to talk with you and walk with you along life's narrow way. Give me all your tears of sadness and all your years of pain, and you’ll enter into life in my name. By being strong-willed, you will be able to overcome the obstacles of a long and winding, dry and hot desert road and arrive at your blessed assurance. Now you can testify that I'm alive because I live within your heart. Then, because I'm a loving and healing Bro, you can be happy and blest, praising your Savior all the day long."

The Two-Year-Old Hit-and-Run Victim in China: Is She the “Neighbor”? Part 1

Jesus's last question, “Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” turns the lawyer’s question, “Who is my neighbor” upside down.

How Should Christians View Contraception?

Ultimately, all Christian arguments concerning birth control or “family planning” must be based on Scriptural principles. But we find very little explicit teaching about contraception, unlike numerous texts concerning human sexuality and marriage. 1. The Bible is very clear about procreation from the “cultural mandate” in Genesis 1:28: “And God blessed them. And God said […]

“Angels near the earth with golden harps” and other old but strange songs

“Angels near the earth with golden harps” and other old but strange songs

New and improved versus old, obsolete and traditional. Our culture idolizes whatever is new. A couple of years after buying a car, a computer, or an iPhone, we regret having bought them then and not today. Sometimes we don’t even know that what we bought was already obsolete before it even left the checkout counter. […]

Pop Evangelism’s Misuse of Scripture: Part 6

The Fig Tree: A Sign to Israel and the Church

The Fig Tree: A Sign to Israel and the Church

Since it had no fruit because it was not in season yet, why did Jesus curse the tree? Because he was hungry and it had no fruit? Isn’t that a sin of selfishness, short temper and capriciousness? When Peter noticed that the fig tree had withered, why did Jesus answer, “Have faith in God,” and then talked about prayer?

The Origins of the Christ-Child

Beneath Matthew’s genealogy is the story of God’s salvation plan through Abraham, David, and Christ. Notice that the record includes not only Jews, but also a few Gentiles, all of them women who had tarnished reputations. But as Paul says, all those who are Christ’s are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise (Gal 3:29).

A Psalm of Lament for Christmas

This is why we celebrate Christmas. This is why we have joy at Christmas. This is why we could say with David, “My heart shall rejoice in your salvation!” This is why the angels in heaven rejoiced at the birth of Christ, because his birth was “good news of great joy that will be for all the people.”
