The All-Sufficient Christ

The book of Colossians beautifully and powerfully indicates that you really cannot add anything to Jesus and His gospel without subtracting from them. Christ is preeminent - He is before all and above all (Colossians 1:18). He is not merely to be given a place in our life, or even a priority; He is to [...]

It’s Only a Month Until PTP!

How do you describe PTP? It’s one part workshop, one part summer camp, one part pray-cation and one part incredible life experience.

Respect for the Word of God is Right

What a wondrous thought! God has a special group of people He calls His own (1 Pet. 2:5-9; Titus 2:11-14), and He has given us divine communication for knowing how to become His people.

If to have seen Jesus was to have seen the Father, the clearest, radiant and beautiful picture of what the Father is really like (John 14:8-9), then to see the church should be to see a clear and precious picture of what Christ is truly like. After all, the church is His body (Eph. 1:21-23); [...]

Great Preachers of the Past: Johnny Ramsey

The first time I met him he said, "Why don't you sit down and tell that man (my future father-in-law, who also was sitting in the room) exactly what your intentions are concerning his daughter?" Then he left the room! Johnny Ramsey was one part Jeremiah, one part John the Baptizer and one part machine [...]

Let Love Abound

Studying the prayers of Paul is a life transforming experience! Philippians 1:9-11, while brief, packs a great punch as Paul prays for the church at Philippi. It should be noted 1:9-11 is one long, complex sentence. The apostle continually prays (present tense) for them; he loves them as they are especially dear to his heart. [...]
