Example #2 of Dynamic Faith: Rehab the Prostitute

James 2:25: “In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction?”  Dynamic faith is when intellect, emotion, and will are all operating together. Combining faith and works leads to growth.  James provides two... Continue Reading →

MWM: I do declare

Words matter. The Bible repeatedly warns us to watch our mouth, to be careful with the words we speak. In the last #MWM, we saw how the name of Jesus is mighty, and one day, everyone will bow before Him. Not only that, but one day, whether you want to or not, you will verbally... Continue Reading →

Considered Righteous

James 2:24: “You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.” Often people confuse the “dead faith” in James with “no faith,” but that isn’t the case at all. If something is dead, that means at one point it was alive. It was working. James is talking... Continue Reading →

MWM: The Name

Taking a knee seems to be a “thing” these days. Some take a knee in protest, and some take a knee in prayer (the two are not mutually exclusive). However, one day we will all be on our knees in reverence and worship of Jesus Christ. Some of us choose to bow in submission to... Continue Reading →

MWM: Name

I remember when Lyndsey and I found out we were going to become parents. It was a great day. One of the many conversations we had about parenting involved naming the kiddo. While we couldn’t agree on a name for a boy, we immediately settled on a name for a girl. When the second baby... Continue Reading →

Dynamic Faith Example #1: Abraham

James 2:21-23: “Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? Abraham’s faith and actions were working together; his faith was made complete by what he did. And the scripture was fulfilled that says, ‘Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as...

MWM: Instant Obedience

One of the principles we are trying to teach our kids is instant obedience. When asked to do something by someone in authority, we expect compliance. Of course, we are trying to teach them to filter everything through the lens of Scripture, so if asked to do anything counter to the Word or character of... Continue Reading →

MWM: Real Sacrifice

If you had all of the power in the world, would you give it up? If you could know, see, and hear everything that was ever said all at once and not forget any of it, would you give up that ability? Jesus was God and had divine privileges that extend further and farther than... Continue Reading →

MWM: Others

You are not God. I know that may come as a shock to some because they think they are, have been treated like it, or been outright told so. But, alas, you are not. Neither am I! The mantra of many generations is found in the Sinatra song, “I did it my way.” In other... Continue Reading →
