The Silent Ruler

Published by: Sam Crabtree
December 31, 2013

Once upon a time there was a famous Ruler, or at least it was rumored there was.  But he was a silent Ruler. He never came out into public. No one knew exactly what he looked like. He issued no decrees. He just did what he did, and went invisibly about his business, leaving his subjects to make guesses about who he was and what he was up to.

Words about him were inscribed upon the coinage of the land, although skeptics claimed those words were merely the sentiments of coin-makers, having nothing to do with a real ruler.

The Pivotal Place of Hearing

Published by: Bryan DeWire

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.—Romans 10:17

Hearing God’s word is a life or death matter. Yahweh our God says, “man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD” (Deuteronomy 8:3). We perish if God does not speak to us.

That’s the title of a book by Dwight Perry, Executive Minister of the Great Lakes Baptist Conference, and the first African American to earn a PhD at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Here are some excerpts … 

God calls us to be heralds of his unchanging truth. We need not shrink back from such a daunting task, but understand the importance of good exegesis as the foundation for good homiletics.

Coming to the Christ of the Canon

Published by: Bryan DeWire
November 8, 2013

Jesus said to them, “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.”—John 5:39–40 (cf. verse 19)

The point of revealing something is to show off the object which is revealed. The revelation itself is merely a pointer. It’s not the end goal. It’s simply the flashlight, not the road or trees or tent—or whatever it is you’re looking for with the flashlight.

One way to meditate on Scripture is to write it in your own words.

Truer Than Your Eyes

Published by: Sam Crabtree
October 24, 2013

That’s what Jason Meyer said in his brief address to global partners at the luncheon last Saturday. The Scripture’s account of the truth is truer than your eyes.

In other words, trust the Scriptures more than your own eyes, when your own eyes lead you to doubt the Bible.

I read The Life of John Brown because it was recommended to me by a dad who had recently buried his little girl. I have read it with tears, and shame, and profound hope.
