“Pray then like this” (Matt 6:9)

In the midst of a world-wide pandemic, do you find it easier or harder to pray? I suspect “easier” in the sense that fear pushes us to pray more often and more fervently. I also suspect “harder” in light of the mounting number of deaths and the minor discomfort of self-quarantine. When I am not sure how to pray, I tend to follow the Lord’s Prayer and fill in the spaces between the lines (so to speak) with the specifics of my life.

Forgiveness and Confession

Have you ever sinned against a person and never experienced a full release from the guilt? Have you been sinned against and never been freed from the pain?

Is God All Good All the Time? (Romans 8:28–30)

Sometimes the pain in our lives is so intense that we can barely breathe. It doesn't feel like we deserve the pain (and perhaps we don't), and it is unjust for God to allow us to walk through the darkness. One of the worst things that someone can say at that time is to quote Romans 8:28, so before those times come we need to decide whether or not God is all good all the time, and whether or not he works in all things for good.

Every Baptist Should Go to a Catholic Funeral

I recently went to a Catholic funeral and was pleasantly surprised. Not that the gospel was preached, but there were still some things a Baptist like me could learn from.
