Each time a ministry leader falls and has to resign from his position it breaks my heart breaks. I’ve also sadly seen people who come down overly hard on ministry leaders. These are the same people who I’ve also seen not take their sin seriously. Let me be clear my intention is not to point the finger and say, “I’m better than anyone” because to wave that flag is to commit a whole host of doctrinal and...

The Spiritual Life

Gal. 6:1–2, “Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” One of the most unusual figures in church history was a man named Simeon the Stylite. He was the first of the so-called Desert Fathers.

How to Grow Good Spiritual Fruit

Gal. 5:24–25, “And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.” Galatians 5:19 to 21 describe the fruitless existence of the flesh, or the sinful nature.

The apostle Paul has already explained that the flesh and the Spirit are mortal enemies, locked in deadly combat. The passions...
