1 Timothy 1:1-11 - Don't Take Your Eyes Off Jesus




What is the latest popular Christian book you read? Was it
The Four Blood Moons? Was it Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo? While these types of books are engaging, they lead us toward speculation instead of Jesus. In the opening verses of Paul's letter to Timothy, he warns Timothy—and us—about the danger of becoming captivated by theological fantasies and being distracted from Jesus.

Genesis 18 - Guests




John and Francis Canning had an unexpected guest at their wedding in England at Manchester Town Hall. As they stood in disbelief, Queen Elizabeth appeared, shook their hands and congratulated them on their marriage. You never know who will show up for dinner. In Genesis 18, Jesus—a guest more infamous than the Queen mother, shows up to have lunch with Abraham and Sarah. Like an encouraging meal with an old friend, Jesus encourages Abraham, Sarah and us that no matter the obstacles we face, he is more than capable of overcoming them.

1 Peter 1:10-12 - Can I Trust the Bible?



An increasing number of professors in Christian colleges tell their students the Bible can’t be trusted.

Isaiah 52:13-53:12 - The Gospel in the Old Testament




At school my daughter was told Christmas isn't about Santa Claus. It is about a chance to be kind and giving. Jesus was left out of Christmas, as he often is, in the interest of being politically correct and not offending other religions. This week we discover what makes the birth of Jesus so different from other religions. Christ's life and death was described in vivid detail hundreds of years before he came. This is something other religions do not have, the truth of a God who declares what will happen in history.
