Living in the 'Eternal Now'

Let us embrace this day with conviction and courage. Let us see the cultural challenges we face as opportunities to serve Jesus faithfully. Let us remember that the highest price we may one day pay for our faith is worth its cost and so much more.

The More We Live for God, The More We Position Ourselves to Experience God's Best for Our Lives

In contrast to American individualism and consumeristic autonomy, we are exploring this week the biblical mandate, “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). This countercultural command transforms us from consumers into worshipers and from voters into disciples. It calls us to ask of everything we think, say, and do, not “How will this benefit me?” but “How will this glorify God?”

What Happens When We 'Draw Near to God'?

We are exploring this week the biblical mandate, “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). “Whatever you do” applies even to those times when we have nothing to “eat or drink.” In those moments, if we turn to our Father in the knowledge that we have nowhere else to turn, we find that “God is able to make all grace abound to you” (2 Corinthians 9:8). 

5 Reasons We Go to War, the Mar-a-Lago Warrant, and the Philosophy of Hell

Since the search of Mr. Trump's home last Monday, threats against the FBI and the Justice Department have escalated to such a level that some have called for the assassination of federal agents and of Mr. Garland. As one example, an armed man reportedly attempted to breach the Cincinnati FBI office yesterday. When law enforcement officers tried to take him into custody, he raised a gun at them and was fatally shot.

Today's Divisiveness Represents a Strategic Opportunity for Followers of Christ

The divisiveness of our day represents a strategic opportunity for followers of Christ. In a confused culture that rejects objective truth and is paying the price, you and I are to “shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life” (Philippians 2:15-16). Each of us is to “speak the truth with his neighbor” (Ephesians 4:25) and to “stand firm in the faith” (1 Corinthians 16:13).
