Spiritual Warfare: Getting Clear on Our Real Enemy What is spiritual warfare? Spiritual warfare is what the apostle Paul calls “our struggle…against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm” (Eph. 6:12). When we say spiritual, Americans often merely mean emotional.

A Lament for Memphis: Reflections from a Memphis Minister *Editor’s Note: On January 7, 2023, 29-year-old Tyre Nichols was pulled over by Memphis police for reckless driving and was tased and pepper-sprayed.

lit path Sermon on the Mount: Narrow Gate In Luke, someone straight-up asks Jesus, “Are only a few people going to be saved?” (Luke 13:23).

But small is the... Photo of Jeremy BaconJeremy Bacon

What’s the Meaning of Ecclesiastes? What is the meaning of Ecclesiastes? This book in the Hebrew Bible tends to puzzle us with its pessimistic tone and philosophical orientation. What we find as we explore the message and meaning of Ecclesiastes, however, is an honest exploration of the best life has to offer—out from under God’s authority—from a person who was...

The Remarkable Power of Preferred Pronouns I told myself I wouldn’t brag about this publicly. For years, it’s been a bit of a Clark Kent-Superman dilemma: should I tell people about my secret power? Should I keep it under wraps? At the risk of sounding vain, I’m going to go ahead and tell you. I know a lot about pronouns. Like,... Photo of Daniel McCoyDaniel McCoy

What We Learn from Job’s Three Friends The story of Job, from the Old Testament, is well known. He is the man who lost everything—family, wealth, health—and yet did not lose his faith in God.

Jesus Turns Water into Wine…And Turns Worry to Faith The Gospel of John narrates how, to save a wedding feast which has run out of wine, Jesus turns water into wine. As Jesus’ first public miracle, the Gospel of John describes it as “the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory” (John 2:11, NIV). What do we learn about Jesus from...

What God Accomplishes Around a Table When I started out preaching, I attended a church growth conference where the presenter shared that the two most important rooms in the church were the nursery and the women’s bathroom. He explained that, if you wanted to make a good first impression, start here. He also said that the best day to have “Friend... Photo of Rowlie HuttonRowlie Hutton
What Is Holiness And Why Is It Such A Big Deal? What is holiness, and why is it such a big deal? God’s holiness means that he is entirely unique, pure, and powerful, and to enter into his presence in a state less than holiness would result in death. God gave Israel the law so that we would know his holiness and our unholiness, but the... Photo of Gavin AndrewsGavin Andrews
What Ethics Do We Learn from Generative AI? First off, what is generative artificial intelligence (GAI)? Artificial intelligence has been around for a while now. It’s your phone deciphering between your fingerprint and someone else’s. It’s the chatbot attempting to answer your online question, hopefully quicker than it takes to connect with a customer service agent. More recently, it’s your car’s dashboard beeping...

Having Anxiety? Remember the Sabbath. *Editor’s Note: Why should we “remember the Sabbath”? Jesus once explained that “the Sabbath was made for man’’ (Mark 2:27a, NIV). He must have wanted us to understand that God gave the Sabbath for humanity’s good. But how can it be a good thing for busy people to take a day and not try to... Photo of Luke GrayLuke Gray
The Symbiotic Relationship Between Prayer and Fasting I really enjoy a good, robust cup of coffee in the morning. It’s a great way to get my day started.
