I wish I could personally introduce you to each one of them – the picture below will have to suffice for now. Here&rs...

A Special Work God is Doing in Mexico and Latin America

special-work-mexico-latin-america

There are times when we get glimpses into God's work that create a sense of awe and worship. I got a glimpse of that kind of God-initiated work in Mexico and Latin America last week when I participated in the Fieles a Su Llamado conference hosted by Iglesia Gracia Soberana, the Sovereign Grace church in Juarez, Mexico.

It is not typical for any Christian book these days, especially a young adult one, to have as its focal point a particular sin prevalent among its readers. It’s better to remind teens of the inner spiritual power they contain than the evil lurking within their hearts, right? Wrong. The power of Mr. Machowski’s Dragon Seed is its uniqueness. The book aims straig...

Do You Need Help Reading Your Bible?

help-reading-bible

It's mid-year, just over the six-month mark. For many of us, that could mean that our Bible reading plan we started with such gusto on January 1 has long been sitting on our bedside table collecting dust. Maybe you haven't neglected reading Scripture entirely, but when you do open your Bible, it's hard to know where to start or what to read. I've had seasons like tha...

Have you ever spent most of a day thinking about yourself? I'm sure that I have. Of course, the train of my thoughts circled across miles and miles of mental track. I'd think about sins I committed. I would wonder what cravings were behind them. Then I'd think about what other people thought of me. Then I'd wonder what effect their negative thoughts would have on our relat...

The story behind why is incredible and also a direct reflection of the partnership we share as Sovereign Grace Churches.

Holy Week Resources

holy-week-resources

For us, as Christians, this week is unique because it provides us an opportunity to reflect again on the substitutionary death of Christ on our behalf, and on his victorious resurrection 3 days later. While these glorious truths are timeless, they will only affect and shape us if we take time to look deeply at Calvary and the empty tomb again. My friend, Jeff Purswell, wro...
