All in christian living

Homesick

They say some people are just meant for New Orleans and I was one of them. It was a polarizing place. I never met anyone who was just iffy about it. People either loved it or they hated it and wanted to get out. There was no in between.

Comfort in Chaos

In these moments of life where we're not sure which direction is up, we can feel scared, worried, or discouraged. We can feel ready to give up. It's in these moments where we need to realize that we as Christians have reason to take heart. We have good reason to hold fast and stand strong.

Putting the "Just Us" in Justice

As I begin, let me say that I've got a simple mind. Things may seem more simple to me than to others. I've also been trying to keep up as best I can with this topic. I've read many articles by Thabite, I've listened to James White talk a lot on the Dividing Line, I've read articles by Tom Ascol, and I'm currently reading and reviewing Woke Church by Eric Mason.

God's Grace in Your Birthplace

Suffering (On Purpose) for God's Glory

Not many of us like to think about suffering. When we do suffer we try to end that process as quickly as we possibly can. It makes sense, right? It's uncomfortable and downright painful at times to experience suffering. No one wants to suffer. Everyone wants to be comfortable.
