Family Worship . . . with Children!

God has given Suzanne and me the great privilege and duty of teaching two beautiful children who God is, how serious their sin is, and their need for a Savior. It’s a big deal! It’s a responsibility that is both delightful and daunting. My suspicion is that most parents of small children more readily sense the daunting part of the duty than the delight! Leading our fam...

Elijah's Showdown

John Calvin was offering a very biblical diagnosis when he described the human heart as a perpetual factory of idols. He was describing you and me.

God is Our Helper

I’m working on two terrific texts for this coming Sunday: Revelation 17 and Psalm 54. I’m looking forward to walking through them with you. Psalm 54 is rooted in David’s traumatizing experience of betrayal recorded in 1 Samuel 23. But the main thought of the text applies to every trial we face as the children of God: “God is my Helper.”...
