The Grace of Mentors in Pastoral Ministry – “A healthy local church provides “a rich matrix of relationships for mutual modeling and copying. By becoming a member of a gospel fellowship, our new Christian can compare notes with other newborn believers who are adapting to the strange, wonderful life of a forgiven Jesus follower.”

Let Your Dim, Sin-Stained Light Shine Before The World – “Don’t confuse the message. You’re not living a life of perfection so others can learn from you the secrets of self-mastery. You’re living a life of redemption, so that others can meet the Redeemer who is at work in you. And that message is truly good news.”

The Serpent on the Pole and the Cross of Christ – “When Jesus explained the nature of His atoning death on the cross to the Israelites of His day, He appealed to what is arguably the most fascinating of the redemptive symbols from the history of Israel’s wilderness wandering–namely, the bronze serpent on the pole (Numbers 21:4-9; John 3:14). The bronze serpent is the clearest type of the saving work of Jesus at Calvary. Of all the types and shadows, there was not any that showed forth the principal work of the Savior better than this type.”

When Everything in Life is Going Wrong… – “When we serve God, He wants our whole hearts—not half-filled with fear. Whatever our fear may be, accordingly, the test will come. Therefore, the next time you hear someone say, “Why does this keep happening to me?” You’ll know that God has a plan for them to get over their fear—to jump over their hill of adversity.”
