Tomorrow I have the privilege of speaking at Reformed Seminary Orlando during chapel. My text is 2 Corinthians 12:7-10. The title of the message is “The All-Sufficiency of Christ in the Midst of Trials.” I hope to convince those who listen that Jesus is enough, even through things like head and neck cancer and the loss of [...]

Why Pray for the Persecuted?

This Sunday is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. We will join forces with believers around the globe in interceding for the some 200 million of our kind suffering for their faith in Jesus. This begs the question why pray for these brothers and sisters? I see at least three reasons in the [...]

Began my day with this from A Way to Pray: Inspire us to work the works of him that sent us while it is day, since the night comes when no man will be able to work. Whatever good our hands find to do, let us do it with all our might. For there is no work [...]

One Word Prayer Request of Pastors

by Pastor Curt on October 28, 2014
filed under , ,

Earlier today I wondered how I could reach out to encourage some of my pastoral counterparts fighting the good fight (1 Tim. 6:12). The trick with this kind of thing comes with realizing that pastors fall into the crazy busy category. None of us relish the idea of getting spam-like texts, n0 matter how well [...]

Over the years I’ve logged my share of hours on the therapist’s couch. At different seasons, biblical counseling has played a huge role in my life. Lord knows I’ve needed it.

I promised to post this portion of my manuscript on the blog for the convenience of anyone who wanted to pay closer attention. I promise, I fulfill.

As we approach Halloween, it’s easy as Christians to focus on the question: will we or won’t we participate in Halloween? Many Christians have valid and scripturally based arguments for both sides of the debate and this post doesn’t attempt to answer that question. But I would like to pose another question as we approach [...]
