Writing to the Church in Corinth (1 Corinthians 12:12–26), Paul gave a metaphor to illustrate the Church in action. He referred to it as the Body of Christ and spoke about how each body part was created to fulfill a particular role. Paul’s point wasn’t to address the human...

Patterns for Discipline

Posted by Joe Paris on

I’m just not a disciplined person. We have all heard this comment before, and some of us might have even said these very words when trying to become a more organized and disciplined person. I imagine that with the start of the new year, some goals are being made to grow spiritually...

The Wonderful Counsel of Scripture

Posted by Joe Paris on

The metanarrative (big fancy word for the big story) of the Bible is the message of how a loving God sent his only Son to die for us so that we may have life. The Bible is not a self-help book but rather a relationship book for man to be restored to God. With that said, believers shouldn’t...

Peace With A Purpose

Posted by Joe Paris on

Whenever Christians start encouraging one another to be at peace with each other no matter the cost, someone usually expresses this common sentiment: “What am I supposed to do? Just lay down and let people walk all over me?” They typically make this statement as the ultimate trump...

God's Judgment

Posted by Joe Paris on

Most non-Christians are very quick to claim that Christians are not supposed to judge. They say it with a sense of arrogance, as both a reminder and a reprimand. One of the key verses used to promote this false teaching is found in Matthew: Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your...

Consequences

Posted by Joe Paris on

Against you, you only have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so you are right in your verdict. — Psalm 51:4 The Bible tells us much about sin. We are told sin is fun for a season, that sin separates us from God, and sin ultimately leads to death. Although most Christians have...

What Were You Thinking?

Posted by Joe Paris on

Against you, you only have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge. — Psalm 51:4 “What were you thinking?” I have heard parents ask their kids this question after they made a bad decision. Most parents fail to...

In God's Sight

Posted by Joe Paris on

Against you, you only have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; — Psalms 51:4 “If neither party is being hurt, then what’s the big deal?” Have you ever heard this sentiment when talking about social issues surrounding morality? When discussing issues of sin...

Forget About It

Posted by Joe Paris on

For I know my transgressions and my sin is always before me. — Psalm 51:3 When David says, “I know,” it’s almost like David is saying his sin is continuously on his mind. It is always right in front of him, a never-ending reminder of the sin he has committed. He gets up...

Who Is Your Nathan?

Posted by Joe Paris on

For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. — Psalms 51:3 I try to picture David in the way that he says this, with an emphasis on “I know my transgressions.” If you don’t know David and Bathsheba’s story, David was quick to ignore the sin in his...
