There is no such thing as genuine knowledge of God that does not show itself in obedience to his Word and will. The person who wants to know God but who has no heart to obey him will never enter the sacred courts where God reveals himself to the soul of man. God does not […]


To be clear, I was not converted out of homosexuality. I was converted out of unbelief. I didn’t swap out a lifestyle. I died to a life I loved. Conversion to Christ made me face the question squarely: did my lesbianism reflect who I am (which is what I believed in 1999), or did my lesbianism distort who I […]


Scripture is not a random collection of ancient myths and aphorisms. It has a unifying message told in every genre, by every author, in every period of redemptive history. The unifying thread is not God’s plan to establish a glorious national people on the earth nor is the Bible about the reader. The Bible is […]


27. Q. What do you understand by the providence of God? A. God’s providence is His almighty and ever present power,[1] whereby, as with His hand, He still upholds heaven and earth and all creatures,[2] and so governs them that leaf and blade, rain and drought, fruitful and barren years, food and drink, health and […]


Blessed be the Lord, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle; My lovingkindness and my fortress, My stronghold and my deliverer, My shield and He in whom I take refuge, Who subdues my people under me. O Lord, what is man, that You take knowledge of him? Or the […]


Excerpt from Studies in the Sermon on the Mount by Martyn Lloyd-Jones.


Love also requires commitment. It requires a commitment to God and His holiness, as well as a commitment to one another. “Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another” (1 John 4:11).

Though troubles assail us, and dangers affright, Though friends should all fail us, and foes all unite, Yet one thing secures us, whatever betide, The promise assures us, “The Lord will provide.” The birds, without garner or storehouse, are fed; From them let us learn to trust God for our bread: His saints what is […]


Assurance versus Presumption by Joel Beeke on Jun 24, 2016, Meet the Puritans Assurance and presumption come from different root causes. Assurance comes from the Spirit of God enlightening the heart and working childlike affections. Presumption comes from a lack of experiential knowledge of the depth and danger of one’s sin and the clinging presence […]


Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with […]


Excerpt from Tabletalk Magazine, July 2016, The False Calvinist, by Rev. Joe Thorn. The one who embraces the absolute sovereignty and unbreakable love of God, in light of our own moral inability to do good or please Him, will be struck with awe and overwhelmed with meekness. The Father chose us, the Son died for […]


The authority and inerrancy of Holy Scripture are the bedrock upon which true Christianity stands. We depend upon Scripture’s witness for all that we hold true concerning God, man, and the way of salvation in Christ. The great events of redemptive history, such as the incarnation of the Son of God in the person of […]
