Not a Job for Professionals

Last updated on January 12th, 2017 at 08:11 pm

God has been very faithful to me through his Word, and I have been continually refreshed and challenged this last couple months.

“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” (Psalm 119:11)

When we have Scripture planted firmly in our hearts, God will often use that to deal with us. And deal with me he has. And the few words I have and the conversation that I hope to have through this article has been birthed out of my study from last week.

Discipleship does Disciple-Making

Last updated on October 20th, 2016 at 06:11 pm

I’m answering these questions from almost the same exact position that you’re asking them from. I’m a single guy.

So here are some of my thoughts to your questions. I will also provide links to other articles/videos and Bible references. These aren’t perfect answers, but they are my best attempt.
