We are near concluding our second month of dealing with COVID-19 and the attendant restrictions that have been placed on businesses, travel, and socializing. One thing that I think we have learned in these days is that community is critically important for people. We were created by God to live with each other ...
COVID-19 cuts against the grain! We are not accustomed, you and I, to prolonged disruptions to our ordinary, everyday routines. We find such disruptions to be a nuisance, both frustrating and annoying. Indeed, we dislike most anything that presents itself as an obstacle to what we want, to the achievement of our desired goals.

We had just begun to attend a reformed Baptist church in Kansas, and I was drinking deeply of God’s word and delighting in the expositional preaching that I was under. ...Keep Reading
Are you under the law or under grace? Before you answer, allow me to raise the stakes. Paul writes in Romans 6:14 “For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace”. ...Keep Reading
What does it mean to be justified? I have discovered that even dear saints in Reformed Churches are often confused as to the meaning of justification. ...Keep Reading
The start of a new year is an appropriate time for reflection. In an ordinary year, we would think back to all that we accomplished and experienced in the past year and wonder what excitement the new year will bring. But 2020 was anything but ordinary....Keep Reading
July 4th is traditionally celebrated as the “birthday” or beginning of America. July 4, 1776, was when the delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, drafted by (future President) Thomas Jefferson and approved by the Continental Congress two days earlier. ...Keep Reading
