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

The Legacy of Grace

One of my favorite things about the Bible is that there is no lack of amazing stories. One of the great gems of the Old Testament is the story of Ruth. Now this story comes to us in the midst of one of Israel’s darkest moments. The very first verse of the very first chapter … More The Legacy of Grace

Worship in Eternity

One of the great pieces of wisdom I’ve received in my short life has been “Begin with the end in mind.” Now this wisdom isn’t limited merely to the realm of church matters. This idea bleeds over into every sphere, whether it’s your family, or your business, or your home, or even dealing with people … More Worship in Eternity

A Sober Look at Hell

When was the last time you had to have a hard conversation with someone you loved? Maybe you found yourself torn because you didn’t know what to say or you didn’t want to be misunderstood. At the same time you knew that silence was not an option because then you would be failing to be … More A Sober Look at Hell

To Heaven With You

What does a vacation look like for you? Isn’t it remarkable that so many of us can have an ideal concept of a vacation and no two are the same. For example, I have some family whose ideal vacation involves being firmly planted on the beach. I, on the other hand, would much prefer a … More To Heaven With You
