You Can’t Run Forever

One of the great marks of our present world is procrastination. Usually, the idea goes something like this: “Why do today what I could do tomorrow?” It’s fascinating if you think about it. We exist in a world devoured by instantaneous gratification while simultaneously being devoted to the perpetual act of putting things off. As … More You Can’t Run Forever

Rehoboam: The Scorpion King

There’s nothing quite as important as a first impression. Now depending on the personalities involved, you may be able to recover to some degree, but first impressions are rarely forgotten. In the Scriptures, we find that one of Rehoboam’s first acts as king (insofar as the Bible records for us) was an absolute train wreck. … More Rehoboam: The Scorpion King

Useless Worship: Jeroboam

There are few men who typify failure in our world. Who are the ideal failures in yours? They may be failed coaches. They could be moral failures, both in politics and even the church. Who comes to mind when you think “utter failure”? Scripture contains the limited biographies of countless men and women. Each individual … More Useless Worship: Jeroboam

Here we might consider the story of Creation, or the Exodus, or even Joshua and the fall of Jericho. I’d like to look at one … More When You Forget God

The Temple of Solomon

In all of Scripture, save the Lord Jesus Christ, no other person is the embodiment of wisdom quite like Solomon. His reign brought unprecedented wealth into the land of Israel while his people increased in number (1 Kings 4:20). He stands as author to some of the richest literature of the Old Testament including Psalm … More The Temple of Solomon

David’s Covenant

Though the nation of Israel produced many kings, there was never a king quite like David. David was the original renaissance man: master warrior, premier strategist, musical virtuoso, leading administrator, etc. However, it was during one of his most altruistic of moments in devotion unto God that God in return poured out His blessings upon … More David’s Covenant

The King Who Sang

There are few figures in Scripture as notable as David. Even today, people unfamiliar with the Scriptures as a whole have at least heard that phrase, “The LORD is my shepherd…” (Psalm 23:1). David was a prolific song writer and the Psalms are one of the church’s greatest heirlooms. Even more than a simple musician … More The King Who Sang

Destined to Rule

One of my favorite things about the Bible is that it is a book full of stories. God could have simply made the entirety of His work a rule book (as people often presume it to be). Instead, He chose to teach us about Himself by means of stories. In the Scriptures, we hear stories … More Destined to Rule
