The Armor of God Pt.2

Ephesians 6:10-20Read Text What is the Armor of God? It’s obviously not literal, physical armor which we pull from the closet and put on while we drink our coffee and get ready for work. I also don’t believe it is something we have to “mentally” put on literally through prayer. Yes, we pray about such […]

The Armor of God Pt.1

Ephesians 6:10-20Read Text In most of the sermons I’ve heard through the years about the Armor of God, the speaker tends to over-spiritualize the Text. They over-do the whole spiritual warfare thing. Don’t misunderstand me, it IS real. We have a real enemy who is a spirit; and he has other spirits fighting with him […]

What Are Good Works?

Ephesians 6Read Text I have spent a lot of time thinking through, praying through and writing about these few verses and what they mean for men, specifically how we love and lead our families. But I want to look at them from a different angle. Same Text. Same meaning. Different aspect & application. That’s one […]

Imitators of God

Ephesians 5Read Text “Therefore” – Since I am a new man (4:17-24), since I am sealed with the Holy Spirit (4:30), forgiven by God (4:32), and a beloved child (5:1)… As a child imitates his earthly father, let us likewise imitate our loving heavenly Father. Sounds like good, solid, Christian advice right? And it is […]

New Life In Christ

Ephesians 4Read Text In Ephesians 4 Paul’s letter takes a turn in its focus, as do most of the epistles. He shifts his focus from orthodoxy (proper doctrine/theology, or you could say right thinking/beliefs about God) to orthopraxy (proper conduct, or right actions/living for the believer). Since, therefore (chapters 1-3), we have been loved, saved, […]

When the opportunity arises to say something (publicly) about your wife, what comes out of your mouth: words that oppress or applaud her? What adjectives roll off your tongue concerning the one […]

Advice For Young, Single Men Seeking To Live A Godly Life

I can never forget the journey to the States. I was some thousand feet above ground and psyching myself in preparation for my academic studies ahead. “I have to be successful, that’s what a true man is.” I’d say to myself repeatedly. I would think about the family (a single-parent home) I left when boarding […]

Why Would You Not Work Out Your Own Salvation?

[12] Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, [13] for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. (Philippians 2:12-13 ESV) One of […]

The Joy Of Humble Selflessness

We have been studying through Philippians in our Men’s Group that meets in my home. As we recently reviewed chapter 2 a few truths occurred to me that I already knew, but really grabbed my attention in this section of Scripture. It jarred me (again) to see the number of commands for us to humble ourselves and to feel […]

As a parent of three younger children, I’m always wrestling with issues of how to instruct them in the faith, love them well, lead them faithfully by example, and so on. More than I want them to behave, do well in school, get a good job, live wisely, find a good spouse, or be a […]
