I know it is Reblog Friday, but I have been bad this week and haven’t had much time to visit other sites. So, I will do a modified “reblog” and share an excerpt out of David Platt’s Counter Culture that has been on my mind for a few weeks now as the ISIS issues intensify, the whole Iran debacle takes us further from God’s protection … Continue reading Reblog Friday: Countering Culture
Last week we were talking about God’s design for marriage. I stated that God’s design for marriage is for men and women (both made in the image of God) to leave their parents and be joined together in order to multiply. Once married, men are to love their wives as Christ loves the church and be the head of their households; women are to love … Continue reading Submission…A Dirty Word in Today’s Culture
Yesterday, I stated my opinion that God’s design for marriage was for men and women (both made in the image of God) to leave their parents and be joined together in order to multiply. Once married, men are to love their wives as Christ loves the church and be the head of their households; women are to love their husbands as the church loves Christ … Continue reading What Does It Mean to be the Head of a Household?
Yesterday we began to take a closer look at marriage. Yes, it is a subject we are almost all familiar with, but are we living it? It is my contention that we, Christians, have no right to defend God’s definition of marriage when we ourselves are not even trying to live it out ourselves. God’s design for marriage was for men and women (both made … Continue reading Men and Women-Equal But Not Identical
I have been married for 18 years, and let me just say that I never considered how my relationship does or does not reflect Christ or the gospel. I think too often I bank on the fact that just staying married in today’s society is enough to show my faith. But really, is just staying married enough? Is this really what God had in mind … Continue reading What Does Your Marriage say about Christ?
Yesterday we were talking about the importance of helping the poor, widows, and orphans. I even threw out the harsh statement that if we fail to do these very things, then maybe, just maybe, we are not Christians after all. If you have not read yesterday’s post, I encourage you to do so now. Today, I wanted to tackle the issue that is no doubt running through many … Continue reading Evidence of Salvation
Matthew 25: 31-36 (NKJ): “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy[c] angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, … Continue reading Countering Culture by Helping the Poor, Widows, and Orphans?
I’ve never really had a heart for missions. Being a missionary was something I never ever wanted to do. I am a high maintenance woman who appreciates the luxuries of the United States way too much to be traipsing all over the world to share God’s word. After all, there is still so much to do here in the United States. But over the last … Continue reading Lord Send Me
Yesterday I caught the tail end of the radio show Radical with David Platt, which was originally aired on Moody Radio. Unfortunately, I had been scanning radio stations and just happened to catch a little piece of it, and I can’t even tell you what radio station it was aired on or which radio cast it was (without going back and listening to all podcasts). … Continue reading Saved From Hell or Saved From Sin?
