The Son Exalted for the Father’s Glory

Philippians 2:9–11, “Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” People are innately, instinctively, incurably purpose-driven.

Being Like a Berean: How to Properly Search the Scriptures

One of the great battles in being a Christian and a ministry leader is not being “one of those” types of leaders. In my over twenty plus years being a Christian and being in the Church, I’ve learned that Christians do not like being labeled as “judgmental”, “critical” and even more they suspect people who say they are “discerning”.
