Help Me Pray

Posted by John Jones on

This week I’d like to share some worthwhile resources. We know that the Holy Spirit guides us in prayer (Rom. 8.26; Gal. 4.6; Jn. 14.16), and we know that Scripture warns against praying mindlessly (Mt. 6.7) and growing lax in our prayer life (Lk. 18.1-8). However, what are we to do during...

Look at the Birds

Posted by Jeremiah Hill on

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet...

Hope Was Running Dry

Posted by Eric Mullinax on

How dry is dry? Elijah predicted years in Israel (1 Kings 17.1) when there would be neither dew nor rain. (Now, that’s pretty dry!) After this revelation to Ahab, God sent the prophet to a brook where he found water to drink. There, he was fed by ravens who brought him food day and night...

I always love hanging around a large gathering of men from our church. I’ve been around here for a while, so I have enjoyed a great number of opportunities to reconnect with guys I’ve worshiped with for years and also fellowship with men I am just getting to know. During these times...

Finding Good Sermons

Posted by John Jones on

I enjoy preparing, praying over, and preaching sermons. As you might suspect, I also enjoy listening to sermons. In fact, even though some preachers consider it scandalous to listen to sermons in preparation of a sermon, I still do. I love sermons, learn a lot from sermons, and enjoy citing...

Mark Dever and Jonathan Leeman of 9Marks host a regular podcast called, Pastors’ Talk, which I listen to regularly. Recently they shared a helpful discussion about expositional preaching as the normal diet for the Christian life. You can listen here. By the way, to paraphrase, Mark defines...

Last Thursday evening we invited Al Dayhoff to speak to us on evangelism. Al is the founder of Evangelize Today and was invited by our presbytery to lead an all-day workshop on evangelism. I am happy to a part of a presbytery that spends time (and money) to develop our ministry...

Name-Dropper

Posted by Eric Mullinax on

OK, I admit it. I am a name-dropper. The Urban Dictionary defines a name-dropper as a vain person who is insecure about his popularity, and must resort to the inclusion of the names of popular people who have no relevance to the conversation in order to achieve a self-gratifying level of social...

Hospitality

Posted by John Jones on

For the first quarter of 2020, I have committed to study closely the topic of hospitality. Partly, this is a result of pondering themes in Romans 12-16, the closing section of Paul’s letter focused on the life of the church body in a culture hostile to Christianity. In addition to...
