Eric Liddell is a man for our time, not because of his Olympic fame nor the glorification of him in the award winning film, Chariots of Fire. It is because we live in a time when our rationalization has destroyed the faith that fuels holy fires.
How does the “nice” Christian prepare as the horizon darkens? He must become a light in his community, someone unmovable, willing to offend and even be wounded for the Christ he follows and the moral values he promotes. In doing so, his “nice” will die. The pressure will forge a Christian, not loved, but respected; A Christian not “nice”, but kind.
When our study has the proper aim of God, our pride is shattered, our thirst for knowledge is satisfied and strengthened, and our hearts for the lost can overflow with the love of God.
Darkness and light are the same to God. Our identities were fashioned in love & order, our suffering tailored to reveal his fingerprints.
What happens when society believes that good exists in limited quantities? We explore the root of envy and its manifestation in the Evil Eye.
In hard times, how do we stand strong? By practicing the art of remembering, we can explore small but impactful ways to keep God’s truth constantly before us.
In times of uncertainty, it is more important than ever that Christians protect their “ancient landmarks”. In the darkness, a light shined. God became a baby.
