As a lifelong overly critical person, I’ve learned a lot about being judgmental. Below I go in depth into ways I’ve wrongly judged people, the difference between good and bad judgment, how we justify our judgmental attitudes and more. It’s a deep and ugly sin that I hope this post exposes!
Living under leaders who do not honor God is a difficult reality, but it’s a reality given to us with specific instruction from God’s Word to trust God’s sovereign wisdom. This calling is currently becoming more difficult than we’ve ever known, yet more crucial than ever.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a triage is defined as “the assignment of degrees of urgency to wounds or illnesses in order to decide the order or suitability of treatment.” If the symptom is cynicism, then 1 Corinthians 13:13 remains the eternal prescription, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.”
Turmoil in the world is often blamed on God being angry with us. Do we believe in a grumpy God? Let’s examine a few misconceptions you might have to find out. This is part 1 of a 3-part look into who God truly is and how he relates to us.
We can do social media for God’s glory, if we’re using it rightly, and rightly may not be as easy as simply “preaching at” people. A well known bit of scripture, not originally about this, can easily be applied to our social media and the way we connect, or don’t, to people in our circles.
An excellent quote from John Stott on the inseparable importance of truth and love in Christian relationships and community.
We are called to love our wives and lead our families just as christ has loved and lead us as his people, his church. So let us look at what this biblical headship is and fully understand why we must do this.
With love in the air, we thought this would be a good month to talk all things relationships with a focus on the romantic — dating, sex, purity, and marriage! Brew your best cup of coffee, have your questions ready, and let’s discuss relationships with some of the guys on Saturday morning! View it here!
What is “true love” and why do we use this word so often, vaguely, and flippantly. Let’s look at what “love” actually is – what the word means and what the feeling and concept means – as well as what it has meant in past societies like the Greeks who had more words for it.
You’re dating a girl but then breakup cause you’re “too different”. Sounds decent, right? Society and churches allow it. Our fellow fooled bros are cool with it. However, brothers that know better need to speak up about this, because our big brother, Jesus, taught us differently.
My wife and I recently stumbled into a conversation on the great deal of loss, grief, and pain that comes from being intimate with someone on this side of eternity. It’d be easy to think we should just avoid all of it sometimes. Should we?
The greatest commandments. The first fruit of the Spirit. Love. But are we loving as God actually commanded us to? What does it mean to truly have “love” as a fruit of the spirit? How does this play out in our lives? Nolan examines some key Bible verses that help us begin to understand what […]
I believe there’s one and only one way to know if you are truly loving and being loved. If you don’t know this, or the person you are expecting to love you doesn’t know this, then you can be sure you aren’t actually loving or being loved.
