Can't Do It Alone

Posted by Riley Roberson on

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise!...

Thoughts on Sin

Posted by Riley Roberson on

Too often, I fall into the trap of thinking my sin is momentary and conquerable. If I forget about it, it’s not there. Or if I try hard enough, it’ll go away. Those things aren’t true. I sin, but I forget that sin isn’t just weak moments or inappropriate actions. Sin is...

Three Advents

Posted by Riley Roberson on

After celebrating Christmas, we’re on the other side of Advent, and you really won’t hear the word again until some really churchy person says something about the church calendar next year. But, to me, there are really three advents that are important for us all throughout the year...

Religion and Irreligion (and Star Trek)

Posted by Riley Roberson on

Posted by Riley Roberson on

Around mid-August, I hit 50,000 miles in the air for the year. At this point, at least these two things are true: I’m pretty tired of turbulence, and I’m really tired of airplane food. I was fortunate enough to go on a lot of trips this year to places like Ghana, Arizona, New...

Find Your Role

Posted by Riley Roberson on

I think we get a major thing pretty backwards. Usually, when we do some sort of service, we feel really good about it. We feel like we did God this huge favor, took time out of our lives, and so on. And then when we sin, we think, “I messed up, but no biggie. I’m pretty good...

Working for What We Already Have

Posted by Riley Roberson on

I’m grateful we were able to cover each character in the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15. The older brother’s part at the end is often neglected, so I’m glad we were able to dig into it. The purpose of analyzing a specific character in one of the parables isn’t to...

Hope in Suffering

Posted by Riley Roberson on

James is the type of person you would go to in high school to get them to check out your essay before you turned it in. His writing is beautiful. Having made it all the way through the book, we can see that he begins and ends it with the same idea: in all things, good or bad, we can look to God...
