I want to thank several of you for your positive and encouraging comments on our new study, “Surprised by Jesus: Encountering Christ in the Old Testament.” As I said previously, when I was first exposed to seeing Jesus in the Old Testament, it changed everything about how I read the Bible. I hope that you […]

Three Reasons Christians Should Vote

Visit MyFaithVotes.org to access your Voter Guide. As Americans, we are allowed the unique opportunity to influence our laws. For Christians, this means we must bring our biblical worldview to the public square. Instead of kings who wield absolute power for entire lifetimes, America was established as a nation ruled by the people. The government’s […]

The Snow Globe Effect

I hope that during your lifetime you’ve had the chance to hold a snow globe. The snow globe is either a toy or piece of art that displays an idyllic scene that is encased within the confines of a clear globe, a liquid and small specs of “snow.” The idea is that when you shake […]

Gospel Hope in Days of Darkness

Do you remember when you were a child learning how to tell the time? First, your parents told you the strange news that somehow a clock had “hands.” Next, they showed you that one hand was longer than the other, and based on this odd fact, you could identify the time of day down to […]

For Ours Is the Kingdom

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom” (Matthew 5:3).   Do you feel weary? Tired? Do you feel discouraged at your lack of physical, emotional or spiritual strength?

Searching Our Hearts About Racism

At Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBA), our hearts were broken as we learned of the senseless killing of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and others like them, and we’ve been asking ourselves some tough questions in response. I invite you to join me in those questions, led by verses from Psalm 139. “You created my inmost […]
