God had worked in a truly spectacular way when he delivered Jericho into the hands of Joshua and the Israelites.  Although they had to go into the ruined city to eliminate those that lived there and to take the spoils of victory for the treasury of the Lord's house, Go...

Moses is in the great "Hall of Faith" found in Hebrews 11 and he was indeed a man of great faith.  Hebrews tells us that Moses chose to live as an Israelite rather than an Egyptian and chose to be mistreated. He left Egypt without fear of Pharaoh and he kept the Passov...

It certainly sounds contradictory, but what I see in the lives of the Hebrew patriarchs is "insecure faith."  It is as much as reality as jumbo shrimp, military intelligence or other oxymorons.  You might call it a paradox for Abraham is certainly elevated to us as an...

There is a garden of insecurity in us.  It is a place of total security, but somehow, we’ve let our fears take root.  Selfishness and our inability to control the future and our environment has incubated insecurity in us.  While possessing what we need, we look for som...

Adam and Eve had it all.  All the pleasures of God’s created order and only one little rule.  They had personal, intimate fellowship with God.  All their needs were provided for.  They had no fear, no loss, no anxiety.  If anyone was ever secure, it was Adam and Eve....

I' ve recently been learning at the feet of John Piper, the author of many books, but particularly Desiring God. I haven't actually hung out with John, but I've been watching a video teaching series by this great teacher and pastor.  He made an important statement in t...

Was Jesus considered a conservative or a liberal?  Today, we look at him as conservative, for that is how many in the evangelical church want to  think of him and that for which he stood.  But in his day, he was likely seen as liberal, even radical in the minds of the...

How old are you when you are considered "grown up"?  Is it when you're 18 or 21 or when you have your first apartment?  Is it when you get married or have your first child?  For the Hebrews, you became a man or woman at age 13.  There is no definite, all inclusive time...
