Start here…

What are your questions about the Bible, ministry, or personal matters?

“One of my favorite childhood church memories was of Sunday night services. When the pastor would answer questions about the Bible, I remember marveling at his familiarity with God’s Word. Now I have the time to answer your Bible questions, and I can’t wait to hear from you. Check back often for biblical answers.”

Why is Being Good Not Good Enough?

April 16, 2021

Why is being good not good enough?

This question is sourced in the belief that we’re really not that bad – because we really don’t understand God’s law and how severely we have broken it.

You can’t get 10 seconds or 10 inches into the 10 Commandments without seeing how completely bad we are by God’s standards. Isaiah 64:6 says, “Our righteousness is as filthy rags” in God’s sight. The very things we believe would commend us to God are the things that are most despised in His eyes – because those are the things that make us think we don’t need Jesus.

Galatians 6

Burdens are heavy. That is no secret. But what can I help someone else carry VS what they have to carry for themself? What weight am I under that I have to carry VS what Jesus can carry for me? The weight of “must carry” can only find rest by learning to carry like Jesus. Jesus does not always take the weight away, sometimes He offers a way to carry.
