Jesus’ Sovereignty Does Not Keep Him From Weeping With Us

This article just really encouraged me. My King feels my heart ache when things don't go as planned, and He is with me in the valley of the shadow of death. Thanks, Lord, for always walking with me wherever I go.

Bearing One Another’s (Sin) Burdens

The “burden” in this context is the weight of sin or the “burden of temptations” that has trapped sinning brothers or sisters. To bear this weight is to help them carry their sin burden.

Who Are the Sons of God and Daughters of Men in Genesis 6:1-5?

There are several competing theories on this admittedly peculiar text, a few of them fantastic, at least one of them rather pedestrian, ordinary. Some suggest, for instance, that what is happening here is that angels, typically fallen angels or demons, are intermarrying with human women. My position is the far more pedestrian one, but one that carries with it an important lesson.

The Disguised Blessing of Being Unpopular

Boring Is Productive

This is a POWERFUL article indirectly exposing the Biblical Wisdom of having a plurality of elders to guide the church. This is just fascinating to me. I completely identify with it. The many more mundane decisions I need to make, the weaker my decision making ability becomes. This is one very powerful reason why God commands that the church should be guided by a plurality of elders. We need many Godly men making many decisions, jointly and individually, for the blessing of others. It is dangerous to entrust decision making into the hands of one man, not that he is devious or scheming in his decision making, but that he is human, grows weary, and loses focus over time. May God help our Elders.

"In the late 1990s, Roy Baumeister (a professor at Florida State University) and colleagues performed several experiments showing that certain types of conscious mental actions appeared to draw from the same "energy source" — gradually diminishing our ability to make smart decisions throughout the day."

How the Doxology Shapes Us

I am amazed at how profound the weekly act of worship is. Every time I pause to consider all that is transpiring before the Throne of God and His people when they gather to worship Him, I am filled with an intense desire to worship. It's ironic: as I ponder all that is happening in a worship service, I am moved to deeper worship!

Singing the Doxology every week is like getting a steady drip of life-giving Trinitarian water over hardened hearts.
