Width and Depth of a Gospel-Driven Church

A gospel-driven church cares about width and depth. Churches that grow deep without growing wide are probably not as deep in Jesus as they think because Jesus came to seek and save the lost. In the same way, churches that grow wide without growing deep are probably not as wide as they think because heaven counts disciples, not decisions. A church’s ultimate impact is not only measured by the disciples it makes but in making disciples who make disciples.

Making Mentoring Work

Mentoring programs have long been the practice of many businesses. They provide opportunities for younger, less experienced employees to benefit from the experiences of older ones. While mentoring has proven to be an effective strategy for longevity and success in business, the church would benefit from its application and implementation in the early years of a new believer’s life and spiritual formation. Spiritual mentoring is one person investing in and coming alongside another as a companion on the journey of faith. Mentors help answer questions such as “Who is God?”, “Who am I in Christ?”, and “What is God’s will

The Problem with Following Your Heart

When I was pricked in heart… I was like a beast toward you. Psalm 73:21-22 One of the great gifts God has given to men and women is the gift of reason, logic, reflection, and analysis. But this gift was not given to the animals. Animals act on impulse. Asaph says, “That’s what I was doing! When my heart was grieved, I was being pushed around by the impulses of bitterness, unbelief and despair! No wonder my feet almost slipped!” We’re living in a culture where people love the idea of acting on impulse: “If it feels good, do it!”

Three Marks of a Godly Person (part 1)

The Bible tell us that King David was a man after God’s own heart. So what set him apart as such?  David was a regenerated man, a man with a new heart, a man with a different spirit than other men of the world. We read of his godliness throughout the Old Testament books of first and second Samuel, as well as in the Psalms. I want you to notice three truths that made David such an outstanding servant of the Lord, what distinguished him from all the rest. Let’s measure ourselves against these and remember that these are the

Book Review: The Intolerance of Tolerance – Tim Challies

Several times in the past decade D.A. Carson has been asked to give a public lecture at one university or another. Three times he has taken the opportunity to speak on the subject of tolerance, or intolerance, as the case may be. Those lectures proved the foundation of what would become his cleverly-titled new book, The Intolerance of Tolerance. Here’s the thing: In a society obsessed with tolerance, we are actually not tolerant at all. It’s all a big lie, a big fiction, and we’re all playing along. In order to claim tolerance we’ve had to rewrite the definition of the term and
