God is Almighty (Lesson #1 in What is God Like?)

When you think about what you want your children to learn at church, what’s the first thing that pops into your mind? We’ve all been there. With so much truth in the Bible where do we start? Why not start where the Bible starts. No, not necessarily creation, but GOD. Who is God? What is God like? What does God do? C.H Spurgeon once said, “The highest science, the loftiest speculation, the mightiest philosophy, which can ever engage the attention of a child of God, is the name, the nature, the p...

Should We ‘Make a Beeline to the Cross’? A Caution for Gospel-Centered Preaching

The death of Christ, two thousand years before you existed, purchased the presence of Christ in you today. Proclaiming Christ means making gloriously clear and beautiful all the implications of the blood-bought reality of Christ in you now. Texts that deal with how to experience this living Christ, and how to be transformed by him in the specific attitudes and behaviors of life, are in the Bible not to send us on a beeline to the cross. The cross is in the Bible to send us on a beeline to ...

All Was Bright That Awful Night: The Christmas Truce of 1914

Each soldier had a distinct family, laugh, voice, name, and soul. They were sons, fathers, husbands, brothers, fiancés. In another life, some had been clerks, shopkeepers, students, ministers, teachers. Beyond the heart’s capacity to reason, 6,046 were killed every day in the Great War — a war that lasted 1,566 days. If we gave each fallen soldier thirty seconds of silence, we would be sitting still for nine unbroken years. Unbroken — something that did not describe many of these men. A 19-...

With Gladness in Their Eyes: The Joy of Angels at the Birth of Christ

It’s easy to imagine what Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, or the Magi were thinking and feeling when they encountered the baby Jesus for the first time. I can imagine the mix of excitement, nerves, and expectation as they wondered when God would reveal the details of his plan and what kind of man this child would grow to be. But have you ever thought what the angels of Luke 2 were thinking and feeling? I hadn’t until I read Rev. C.H. Spurgeon’s sermon on Luke 2:14 titled “The First Christmas Carol...

The Old Prof’s “Maple Leafs ‘Just-a-Guy’ Awards” for November

In my November 23, 2018, post titled “Maple Leafs’ Tyler Ennis: More Valuable Than Nylander?,”  a reader commented: “This may be one of the stupidest articles I have ever read. Comparing Nylander to Ennis is absurd – they simply aren’t in the same stratosphere. Ennis is ‘just a guy’ while Nylander is a top skilled player.” Two thoughts: First, I think this reader disagreed with something I wrote. Second, the phrase “just a guy” impacted me. I have, since 1969, been a teacher. I think like a teac...

25 Christian Books I Love to Recommend

I love encouraging people to read weighty, worthy, readable Christian books. I have said many times, Read! Read! Read! But beware of wasting your time on theological foam and suds. Read rich doctrinal books about the one who called you to his glory and excellence (2 Peter 1:3) Now, I know what you are thinking: I don’t have the time or the ability to get anywhere in books like that. So, I want to show you something really encouraging. When this was shown to me, it changed my life. Most of u...

Satisfied in the Arms of Another: Four Lessons for Same-Sex-Attracted Christians

When I began sharing my story, I had no idea how many people like me would come running for help. I am a married man, and a pastor, who experiences same-sex attraction. Since the first time I wrote about my journey and struggle, I have received hundreds of emails from men and women from all over the world asking essentially the same question: How? How do I practically live — as a follower of Jesus Christ — who experiences homosexual longings for intimacy? How do I deal with the nearly crip...

Suffering Taught Him to Look to Christ: Charles Spurgeon (1834–1892)

Crowds lined the streets, hoping to catch a glimpse of the olivewood casket as it made its way through the streets of south London. On top was a large pulpit Bible opened at Isaiah 45:22: “Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth.” It was Thursday, February 11, 1892, and the body of Charles Haddon Spurgeon was being taken for burial. Eighteen years before, Spurgeon had imagined the scene from his pulpit: When you see my coffin carried to the silent grave, I should like ...

Plagiarism for a New Day

My sermon prep and sermon delivery professor, a former large church pastor, would tell the young Spurgeons on the first day of class that any outline or sermon submitted if found to be copied would result in immediate failure of the class. While that was to be expected (and who should expect graduate academic credit given for stolen work?), it still put fear in the hearts of students because those who already had a body of sermonic work seldom were certain that their material was original. It is...

Why Spurgeon Changed His View on Sermon Helps

C.H. Spurgeon, the renowned British preacher of the 19th century, spoke harsh words against the overuse of sermon helps. When a man named Jabez Burns released Two Hundred Sketches and Outlines of Sermons, Spurgeon was ambivalent. “We do not altogether deprecate the use of other men’s outlines,” he said, “for every now and then a preacher may be hardly driven for time, or he may feel mentally incapable of new thought, or he may be a mere beginner and unable to arrange his matter.” But he didn’t w...

What Does Prophecy Look Like Today?

What does the New Testament gift of prophecy look like when it’s being exercised today? This is the sincere question of many evangelicals. Some are exploring the possibility that this gift continues in the church, and others have become convinced exegetically that it does, but would be helped by some examples. But others have different questions. Why do we even need the gift of prophecy now that we have the Bible, the closed canon of the Old and New Testament Scriptures? Why would we “earne...

Do You Refuse to Be Blessed?

When I was first born again, I often lived like a boy stranded between two great blessings. Life with Christ was first about gratitude for what God had done for me at the cross and second about hope for what God would one day do for me in heaven. The in-between was about appreciating the past, anticipating the future, and not sinning in the present. Following Jesus, however, is not mainly about avoiding sin or escaping hell. If we simplify Christianity down to waiting and obeying until God ...
