"So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life."(Romans 6:11-13) Live in the new reality of the resurrecti...

Forsaken

Have you ever been abandoned? Perhaps a friend deserted you when you thought she would be there for you? Maybe a parent left while you were young? Maybe one of your children has rejected your love? Have you ever been left alone by someone you loved? In Mark's account of Jesus' death, we come to some stark words in chapter 15, verse 34. "And at the ninth hour Jesus cried w...

Later in...

Our Fuel

In my seminary class this week, the professor shared a quote from C.S. Lewis that hit me. At LVBC, we often talk about how we're designed to worship God.

A car is made to run on petrol, and it would not run properly on anything else. ...

In our study of Exodus 20:18-21 last week, we read an excerpt from C. S. Lewis' famous work,The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It's so good I wanted to post it here as well. Lewis depicts Aslan the lion as one representing the Person of Jesus Christ. About halfway through the book, the four Pevensie childrenPeter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucyprepare to meet him for the fir...

Fighting Exposure

chuttersnap-654609-unsplash

A couple weeks back, we looked at the Ninth Commandment from Exodus 20. As God's people, we are not to bear false witness about our neighbor. And one of the applications we drew was that, as Christians, we must not fight exposure. What do I mean by that? Well, think about it. Lying, by its very nature, covers up. We lie because we don't want the truth to be known. But if ...
