We are all familiar with the term ‘fixer-upper’ when we are talking about real estate. Any home that needs some work due to age or inattention can be called a fixer-upper. Sometimes a good paint job will go a long way. And sometimes you have to take it down to the studs, or even worse. But the hope and belief is that the home can be lived in with a few minor (or major) improvements. All at a reasonable cost, of course!

Psalm 121: From Where Does My Help Come? Print E-mail

When I went to Jerusalem in college, my professor who taught our class talked about Psalm 121. The old city of Jerusalem, which includes the Temple Mount and the Wailing Wall, is surrounded by huge block walls and sits somewhat elevated. My professor told us that the original city sat south of the Temple Mount and would have been lower in elevation. At one point we were standing in that lower section of the old city and he read verse 1 of Psalm 121: I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? After he read it, he told us to look around, and in every direction we were surrounded by hills. He explained that when the psalmist penned this, he very well could have been thinking about the view from Jerusalem in his day, even looking around as we did at the hills above us. If an army was going to attack the city, then they would first appear on those hills, where would help come from then?

Psalm 120: In My Distress Print E-mail

My van broke down last Friday. Glenna, Isaiah, Jake, and I were headed to a Mexican restaurant for lunch and one of my belts came off. I was able to guide her into a parking spot so we went in and ate, while I called Andy and asked for some advice. After we finished, Andy brought me the tool I would need to get the belt back on and Jake and I started trying to get it on. At one point, when both my arms were covered in black oil and I was pouring sweat, I prayed and asked the Lord for help in removing a bolt that I thought needed removing (for the record, I later realized that I should not have even been trying to loosen it, but that’s another story). As I prayed, the bolt immediately began to turn in my hand. I thought for sure it was sign (apparently what I should have been praying for was the wisdom to know that the bolt did not need to be removed!) In my distress, I cried out to the Lord and he answered me.

Judges 20-21: The Right Perspective Print E-mail

On Friday, the Supreme Court of the United States legalized gay marriage in all 50 states. Many of us have spent the last few days reading and watching the various responses to this historic decision. Many are celebrating. Perhaps they are thankful for the opportunity to marry legally or just thankful that others they know can now do so. Others are saddened. They believe that God has defined marriage in the Bible as between a man and a woman and the Court’s decision is a marked departure from that understanding. As a follower of Christ who believes in the faithfulness and inerrancy of Scripture, I side with the latter. I am burdened for those who believe that joy and contentment can be found outside of faith and obedience to Christ. I am not angry at what they believe, just further burdened at the steps our culture has taken to further normalize those beliefs. Such actions cannot help but have grave consequences.

Judges 19: A Look into Darkness Print E-mail

Some days make it easier to believe in humanity’s depravity and need for a Savior. We had one of those days this past week. Think about it with me. You get up on a Wednesday morning, you get ready, you go to work, you come home in time to make it to Church, and you even notice a visitor in the back of the room. You spend time in prayer and study of the Word and all feels well. Until the visitor stands, takes out a gun, and begins to kill the people around you. Before you can even get over the initial shock and confusion, he is aiming at you.

Judges 17-18: Worship in Our Own Eyes Print E-mail

Download (right-click) or Listen Now:

We cannot worship God however we want. We might think that God does not really care how we worship Him as long as we are worshipping Him. But God’s glory and goodness and worth do not just demand that we worship Him, but that we worship Him according to His instructions. We don’t have the right to make things up. The One who is worthy of worship is worthy of our obedience to His instructions concerning worship. He has given us His Word so that we can know Him and behold His greatness and so that we can respond faithfully in worship.
