Switch Hitters

Are you a switch hitter? A switch hitter is a baseball player that can hit from the right and left side of the plate. The Yankees Mickey Mantle was the greatest switch hitter of all time, but my all time favorite was Chipper Jones who played for the Atlanta Braves for 19 years. Chipper hit for a career batting average of .303 from both sides of the plate, and he came close...

Making Distinctions

Have you ever wondered by why the command Jesus gave to his disciples in John 13:34, "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.", was considered "new"? The Mosaic Law had prescribed love to neighbor both in the moral law (Exodus 20:12-17) and explicitly in the civil law (Leviticus 19:18). Theref...

The Great Ought

There is for those redeemed by the blood of Jesus the great "ought." We like to be free and in our expression of freedoms we don't like "oughts" or "mandates". We see ourselves free to do what we want, even as those who have been bought with the price of the blood of Christ. But those who are bought are not their own, and the oughts and mandates of God are for the glory of...

A Justifying Faith Works By Love

The Westminster Confession Chapter 11, On Justification, section 2 states, "Faith, thus receiving and resting on Christ and His righteousness, is the alone instrument of justification: yet is it not alone in the person justified, but is ever accompanied with all other saving graces, and is no dead faith, but works by love."

Vocation, It All Matters

"What does God want me to do?" This is a question I often hear from people struggling with their jobs or vocations. The two answers I most often give are, his revealed will given everyday in the Scriptures, and the thing he has you doing now. We should be doing what he has given our hands to do right now for the good of others and his glory according to his revealed will. ...
