Ain't Just Putting on the Ritz

But we should be careful to put music in its place and maintain a healthy perspective on its relationship to our own hearts. The ordinary means God has given us to grow are prayer, the sacraments, and the reading and preaching of the Bible. Let's start there, and build our spiritual health around those things first and foremost....

Wine in the Supper: Something Old, Something New

We as church members may have become accustomed to it, and for many of us it may be the norm, but all of us must admit, the use of grape juice in the Lord’s Supper is an innovation that was introduced by man and not by God. Not only has it been the historic practice of the church, but it is mandated for us in Scripture that we use wine in the Lord’s Supper. What then s...

Reflections on Two Months Away From Facebook

Back at the end of September I decided to delete my Facebook account. I hope to mention a few reasons why this was the right decision for me, and then I’ll conclude by reflecting on what I’ve felt and experienced since quitting. I won’t say you should do the same thing, but I will challenge you to consider it....

How to Listen to a Sermon

Yes, the preacher has a responsibility to open the Word of God and say truly what is there, and to do so in a way that doesn’t put you to sleep. And yes he has a responsibility to make the text make sense and to make an earnest application of the text. But we as the sermon listeners also bear a responsibility as well, and it’s a responsibility that I wonder whether we ...

The 300 Israelites vs. The 300 Spartans

"The Lord said to Gideon, 'The people who are with you are too many for me to give Midian into their hands, for Israel would become boastful, staying, 'My own power has delivered me'" (Judges 7:2). As I was working on an upcoming sermon on the book of Judges I found myself amazed by God's power that he showed in crushing the Midianite army with a force of only 300 Isr...

Sunday School is History!

For many of us, the first century time of the Apostles is the most that we really know about church history. We know the book of Acts, and then we know today (and probably a lot of talk about the Reformation)! However, a lot has happened in the remaining 1900 years up until today! And those things that have happened are far more impactful, interesting, and important than m...

How Can We Prepare to Help in Texas?

We don’t know the full reality of the devastation or the damage. In fact, the roadways are still flooded and impassible in most of the Houston area. FEMA is already talking about the work they will be doing in the Houston area in terms of years, and not months. What can we do, as a church? I’m already getting phone calls and messages from people asking what we, as a ch...

Learning to Listen

Let me suggest that, as a church, there is no quick fix for us to solve the racial problems around us. I do want to suggest, however, that the first step is the same first step that the Apostles took in Acts 6, and that’s listening. When our brothers and sisters tell us that they’re hurting, let’s listen. Let’s hear that. Let’s take it seriously. ...

End the Spiritual Boom-Bust Cycle

boom-bust

Most experts seem to agree that an economic boom-bust cycle is not ideal, but it is what we’ve lived with for the last hundred years or so in the United States. I wonder how many of us as Christians have decided to live with a boom-bust cycle in our spiritual lives....

Why Is it Okay to Mix Threads Now?

One thing I have noticed is that when a Christian is challenged on the subject of sexual morality, one of the responses that is most common is for the other person to say, “Well the Bible says you’re not supposed to mix threads together, but your shirt is a polyester cotton blend. So you’re a hypocrite and you just pick one rule out of your Bible and ignore the other...

Do You Need Reasons to Come to Church on Christmas?

68274__going-to-church-on-christmas-morning_p

One of the sad realities of the day in which we live is that a small percentage (3%) of American churches are cancelling their Sunday services this year because it happens to fall on December 25th, 2016. We at Pearl Presbyterian Church will be having our morning services on December 25th this year, just as always. I want to share a few reasons why....
