Ambassadors of Glory

Ambassadors of Glory   T.M. Moore wrote an excellent book called Consider the Lilies. It is a book on Creational Theology, which is the exploration of what can be known about God through the world he has made and the senses he has given us. We need more creational theologians in the church today.    Creational Theology is built upon the reality that “The heavens declare ...

Re-Routing Ruts in Marriage Communication

Re-routing Ruts in Marriage Communication By Andy Farmer For years I had a problem with my basement flooding during heavy rains. It seemed like with every downpour I would be bailing out the window well trying to keep the rising tide from cascading down the walls to the carpet below. Eventually I was able to identify the problem as a rut in the grading around the house which was undetectable ...

Grieving Sons and a Word to Moms

Grieving Men A while back I attended the funeral service of a mom of one of my good friends, John. I could feel his grief. The same week I sat with my dear friend Tim as he wept over the dramatic “turn for the worse” in his mother’s life. On December 1, I’ll mark the eighth anniversary of my mother’s death; an event I cannot give more than a few seconds thought to ...

Today You Will Be With Me in Paradise

Not three months ago we celebrated the birth of Jesus, God incarnate, in a lowly stable.  This week, as we remember his death for us, we see him suspended on a cross between two common criminals.  Having been born among the lowly beasts of the field, he now submits himself to a humiliating death with the most despised and rejected of men.  Just as Isaiah prophesied, it had now ...

“Father Forgive Them” Luke 23:32-37

“Two others, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with him. And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left.

The Washing of Feet

“Now…when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end…knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. Then ...

More Than a Coin for the Master

The heat from the flames surrounded him with a tenacious roar that billowed as if blown by a blacksmith’s bellows to fire the coals.  The man traveled with lightning speed, propelled by some unknown force.  A blanket of air protected his body from the flames lapping over his legs.  Then without warning the fire consumed his clothing and singed his hair.  Instinctively ...

Climbing the Friendship Ladder

When I talk with my single brothers and sisters one of the things that most often comes up is the challenge of friendship.  Particularly friendship with the opposite sex.  Really, friendship between men or between women is hard enough to work through.  But add in the POV differences between genders, the unpredictable workings of attraction and affection and unwritten but very real ...

A Few Great Things that Matter

A Piperian Moment I’m pretty unabashed in expressing my honor and gratitude for men like John Piper. As a result I enjoy and share Piperian moments every chance I get. Here’s one for you now. A few years back I read the following: “You don't have to know a lot of things for your life to make a lasting difference in the world. But you do have to know the few great things that ...
