Q Zone: What Would You Say…

We opened Holy Week this year with a look at the message of “first importance”–the gospel!–examining what Paul had to say about it in 1 Corinthians 15:1-11. Without a doubt the Apostle testified to it’s veracity and vitality in what many consider to be the most succinct explanation of this ‘good news’ in the New […]

Making Much of the Bible

As we opened our new series in James, one of the applicational points I made (designed to help us show what we know) was this: Make much of the Bible. Undeniably this addresses the “know” aspect of the above equation. But that first part is an extremely crucial element. So, as promised, here are some links to […]

Getting Off to a Good Start

As you begin the journey of 2014 today, no doubt a great first step is to commit to daily Bible reading. As David wrote, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105). The decisions ahead of you in the next 365 days need not detour you as […]

What-Would-You-Do Wednesday: Polygamy Predicament

It’s Wednesday, and time for the return of InkLink’s “What-Would-You-Do?” It’s been a while since we’ve stepped out into these waters, but don’t let the cold temperatures keep you from jumping in! Remember, a “What-Would-You-Do” scenario is a true-to-life situation (or close to it) that we can vicariously live out and thus learn from. I’ll […]

On Being a “Good” Minister

“Jesus: Loud and Clear, Front and Center”

This coming Sunday we begin a series through the general epistle of Hebrews—a climb through 13 chapters of mountainous texts that I think will culminate in the grand and glorious vision of Jesus’ preeminence and superiority! It’s slated to be seven months of soul-stirring study. Here’s the series trailer/bumper: In addition to the weekend messages […]

Q Zone: Are You a …

Well, if you were at either of our services today, you understand the title of this post. If not, let me suggest you listen here, letting our last live question catch you up to speed. But some questions from these two weeks in Acts 19 still remain, so it’s time for this biblically charismatic blogger […]

At Least the Word Won’t Wither

As if it’s not enough that I have a witchy tree in my front lawn (see May 14 blog), the lawn itself seems to be withering away, too. Just take a look at the spotty situation. Can you say receeding grass line? A brief bit of background: I noticed a few problem areas last year, […]

Need a Ladder?

One of the compelling aspects of Acts is that it forms a ladder on which we can climb in order to get a good view of the early church’s history. Too many people see it as only a chronicle of people’s travels, forgetting that these travels are made up of people, places, and things specific […]
