The Struggle of Obedience

“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will […]

Making Appointments with Grief

I have a long story but I will give you the short version. My childhood had many significant rough patches; the kind of rough that needed a lot of healing in these young adult years. I have had to bring many memories and people before the Lord and ask for him to give me the […]

Overcoming Fear

Since I was a child I’ve struggled with fear. Fear of man, fear of health problems, fear of rejection. It was a gripping and suffocating problem to a point where I’d have panic attacks at 3 in the morning and allow it to devour my joy and control my life. A little over a year […]

This Isn’t Just For You

In our first week of SBS, one of our teachers had us write down why we came. I wrote this in my notebook, “I came to SBS to gain my own understanding about this book I dedicate my life to and to gain intimacy with the One who called me.” My heart was pure and I believe […]

Just Because It Hurts, Doesn’t Mean You’re Doing It Wrong

Choose Joy

One of the things that I really appreciate about God is his joy, and that he gives it in all circumstances. I think the joy of a Christian can be a very attractive thing to the world. People are caught off guard when they see a person full of joy in the midst of a very hard […]

What’s The Deal With The Trinity?

BELIEVING IN THE TRINITY AFFECTS ETERNITY Have you ever asked yourself “What in the world do I need theology for?” Do we really need more theoretical knowledge to fill our heads with? Theology is not just the theoretical opinions of a bunch of grey-haired, dusty scholars arguing over whose interpretation of a given Bible passage is the “right” […]

I Love Making Announcements

One of my favorite parts about being a Session Leader in the School of Biblical Studies is making announcements during the first first five minutes of each class… and if I’m being honest the announcements usually take me closer to 10 minutes because I’m having fun, probably more fun than a person should have while making announcements. Don’t get […]

We Are All Counselors

We are all counselors. Christians and non-Christians alike, in every word and deed, provide counsel to another of either righteousness or wickedness. Though not everyone holds a master’s degree or Ph.D., all Christians are empowered by the Great Physician. The process of becoming well trained in our righteous counsel comes from studying the scriptures, and […]

Emotions – A Biblical Perspective

Importance of a Biblical Worldview In today’s prevailing society, we have a greater influx of worldviews and standpoints than we have ever have had before. Whether through synthetic cultural significances, faulty presuppositions, or biblical misunderstandings, duplicity and error are mines in the battlefield of man’s mind. In these times, only the word of God exudes […]
