Have You Ever Considered that Worrying Is a Sin? (Matthew 6:34)

I often wake up around 3 am. If I can’t fall back asleep immediately, I’ll get up to read, write, or pray. But sometimes, I wake up with my mind racing. Late last month, I woke up, and worries flooded my mind, my chest tightened, and I started overthinking all the potentials, possibilities, and pitfalls […]

The Father Knows All About Your Busted Minivan

Do you depend upon Christ moment-by-moment—for big things and little things? Two weeks ago, while backing out of the driveway, we ran over a child’s scooter with a loud crunch and a pop. We blew a tire. The next day I went to the tire store and found that all the remaining tires were in […]

How to Get Started in Preaching

People sometimes ask me how to get started in preaching. Well, I didn’t get started in preaching by preaching, but by witnessing. A few months after I was born again, I started telling people about Jesus and the first group I remember going to were the kids at the Muslim Student Association. (That was an […]

Does Spanking Your Kids Contradict Grace?

I believe in sanctification by grace, not by law. However, does that mean grace-based parents shouldn’t discipline their kids? Does grace require you to let your kids run free without rules or consequences? To paraphrase Paul, “Absolutely not!” Grace doesn’t eliminate the law—it clarifies the role the law plays. That was a significant emphasis in […]

Are You Assuming Christ’s Absence From Your Life?

Your vocabulary matters. The words and phrases you use shape your understanding of what it means to live a normal Christian life. There are many ways that our Christian vocabulary—our Christianese—can obscure the saving message. But it can just as quickly obscure essential sanctification truths. For example, at the beginning of a church service, have […]

What’s the Difference Between a True and False Believer? (Free Grace FAQ)

People who believe in salvation by works often wonder about the difference between true believers and false believers. In part, I think they ask that question because they lack assurance. They wonder, “Am I really a believer? How can I know?” Since they think salvation depends partly on how you act, they often think the […]

Don’t Skip a Step in Your Walk With Christ

The one who says he remains in him should walk just as he walked (1 John 2:6). Quick question: How did Abraham get from Ur to Canaan? Step by step. How did the Israelites go from Egypt to the Promised Land? Step by step. And how do you live the Christian life? The same way. […]

Here Are Five Reasons Why Adam and Eve Didn’t Lose Their Salvation (Free Grace FAQ)

I often hear this objection to eternal security: “If you can’t lose your salvation, how do you explain Satan falling away? And what happened to Adam and Eve?” What happened to Satan, Adam, and Eve was tragic, but here are five reasons they didn’t lose their salvation. First, salvation didn’t exist before the fall. Some […]

A Major Reason People Neglect Their Spiritual Gifts (1 Timothy 4:14)

Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you through prophecy with the laying on of hands by the council of elders (1 Timothy 4:14, emphasis added). The Holy Spirit gives every believer a spiritual gift, and as Paul implied to Timothy, you can neglect it. Why would you do […]

Are Children Blank Slates When It Comes to the Gospel?

Every generation needs to be evangelized—and that starts at home. Parents and grandparents are responsible for telling their kids that Jesus died for them on the cross, rose again from the dead, and now offers them everlasting life simply by believing in Him for it. You’ll have to tell them more than once before those […]

Do Atheists Have Less Purpose Than a Light Switch?

Have you heard that one in four “practicing Christian millennials” believe the church is irrelevant? A quarter! And those are kids in the church. Proverbs says: Know well the condition of your flocks, and give attention to your herds (Proverbs 27:23). Parents, teachers, and pastors need to know the “condition of their flocks.” If young […]

Why Are You Spiritually Burnt Out?

“The more I did, the less happened,” Major Ian Thomas reflected. “Thus by the age of nineteen, I had been reduced to a state of complete exhaustion spiritually, until I felt there was no point in going on” (Edman, They Found the Secret, p. 169). Major Thomas remembered his early years as a Christian when […]

Out of Four Areas of Growth Only One Really Matters

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and with people (Luke 2:52). You will notice that Jesus grew on four different levels. The boy from Bethlehem grew up to become the man from Nazareth, and He matured and experienced normal development along the following lines— First, He grew intellectually in […]

God Has Four Responses to Sin

God is holy, righteous, and just. Each of those terms spells out a different response to sin. Because God is holy, He hates sin. For example: “Do not plot evil in your hearts against your neighbor, and do not love perjury, for I hate all this”—this is the LORD’s declaration (Zech 8:17). Because God is […]

What Every Prodigal Child Needs to Realize

God has plenty of prodigal children. How can they get back on the right path? Prodigals need to realize that you can't live without your Father. In the parable, the prodigal son tried to live his life on his own terms, based on his own resources, dreams, and desires (Luke 15:11-32). And what happened? Everything […]

God’s Not-So-Secret Plan for You

Do you want to know God’s plan for you? It’s simple. God’s plan for you is Jesus. In fact, God has no plans for you outside of Jesus. The Father’s plans for you are entirely Christo-centric, that is, centered on Christ. For example, God determined that the only way to Him is through Jesus: Jesus […]

Here’s Why Moses Was Completely Useless

Have you ever felt completely useless? That can be good for your spiritual growth. Consider what happened to Moses. According to Luke: Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful in his speech and actions. When he was forty years old, he decided to visit his own people, the Israelites.

Does the Bible Ever Say We’re Saved by Faith “Alone”?

Have you ever heard someone say: “The Bible never says we’re saved by faith alone!” Let’s admit, they’re right. That phrase doesn’t appear in the NT. Martin Luther, the great Reformer, added the word “alone” to his translation of Rom 3:28. Here is what Paul said: For we conclude that a person is justified by […]

God Loves the Unlovable

The Greek poet Ovid said, “If you want to be loved, be loveable.” That sums up society’s conditional love. Think of how we treat celebrities. The public’s love of celebrities is very fickle, depending entirely on what they do: “To be considered famous or have celebrity status doesn’t just involve being in a bunch of […]
