Nevertheless, we fail to see the severity of our own sin and demand grace when we give in or slip up. On the other hand, in matters of righteousness, we are very quick to see the mixed motives of oth...

Preparing for the Lord's Day The Kingdom of God It has happened more times than I would like to admit. April says, "Make sure to pick up the kids from school today." And I respond, "What?

Preparing for the Lord's Day What brings you joy? What activities cause you to feel deeply fulfilled and intensely engaged? In John 4, we find Jesus "wearied" from a long journey that was filled with hard work. He is "sitting" beside a well in the heat of the day. He asks a Samaritan woman to give him a drink.

Preparing for the Lord's Day It was supposed to be a warmup fight for Mike Tyson as he prepared to defend his title against Evander Holyfield later that year. However, no one saw what was coming the evening of February 11, 1990, when Mike Tyson stepped into the ring with James "Buster" Douglas.
