Verse by verse

I preach through the Bible expositionaly; which simply means I expound upon each verse as it comes in the text. Some of the topics I preach upon are a pleasure to address. Others can be awkward and difficult within a public setting. The upcoming verses in Proverbs 5 through 8 will be a challenge to some. Throughout these chapters, Solomon addresses the subject of marriage ...

Lord willing, on Sunday morning, we will celebrate another Resurrection Sunday together as a church family. Now, we know that every Sunday should celebrate the risen Christ.

Discipleship Projects or People?

This past Sunday, I preached a sermon on the topic of discipleship. Proverbs 4:10 and 13 taught us that those who are newer to the faith should remain in posture to receive wisdom from those more experienced in their faith. Likewise, we saw from Proverbs 4:11 that mature believers should be involved individually with a less mature believer in nurturing their growth throu...

Being a Good Dad

As I have been working through Proverbs 2 and 3, I can't help but see that at the time of writing Proverbs, Solomon was being the ideal father in leading his family spiritually. According to Deuteronomy 6, parents were teaching their children how practically to apply God's words to individual circumstances in life. Consider this text and notice particularly the italicized...

Confessions of a ‘Good Dad’

So here it goes I am not a perfect father. I have made many mistakes over my lifetime, and I have also made many mistakes since becoming a father. Who am I to teach my kids how to live their lives? Solomon had the dilemma. As we know Solomon was granted wisdom beyond most human beings. Yet he flittered away that wisdom wasting it on human excess and pleasures- particular...

Come Said Jesus' Sacred Voice

On Sunday, I mentioned that in the book of Proverbs, the person of Lady Wisdom is synonymous with Jesus. She is crying out in the streets calling people to repent and listen to her. I can't help but think of one of the hymns that Matthew Smith performs on the Indelible Grace Volume 5 CD. It is entitled 'Come' Said Jesus' Sacred Voice. It is the same sentiment of Lady Wis...

If I have found myself still pondering and dialoguing with the content much later, I rank the book higher. The reviews can be found in my earlier blog posts. Trueman, Carl R. Luther on the Christian Life. Wheaton: Crossway, 2011. Paretsk...
