  • Becoming Entirely His
    Let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing —James 1:4Many of us appear to be all right in general, but there are still some areas in which we are careless and lazy; it is …
  • The Majesty of the Teacher in the Sermon on the Mount
    One of the first books I read in seminary was The Riddle of the New Testament by Edwyn Hoskyns and Noel Davey. The riddle was this: How did Jesus himself relate to the teachings of the New Testament? Was his person essential, for example, to the ethics of Christianity?

God's way is best...

From the desk of the pastor:

Romans 11:33-“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!” ESV

In our day and age there are many programs that promote an answer to your problem or the things that you struggle with by following these “three easy steps”. It appears that given enough time there could be a formula for everything and maybe these formulas would work if everyone were the same.

This same ideology has crept into the church as well. What areas in the church can we simplify into a neat little program or formula? In light of this I want you to seriously contemplate the words of Paul in Romans 11. God is infinitely deep in His knowledge and wisdom while man is shallow and clouded by his own pride.

God cannot be placed into a box or a lamp like a genie. God knows each one of us better then we know ourselves and has the exact thing that we need to live the Christian life to its fullness, yet we fight Him at every turn. We need to quit fighting God and trust Him because His ways are unsearchable and inscrutable. May we this day surrender some area in our lives to God because then we will gain the real victory, a custom fit way!
