More Friend Than Any Friend

There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship. – Thomas Aquinas A curious idea started forming in my mind as I read Song of Solomon 5:16 – “His mouth is most sweet, and he is altogether desirable. This is my beloved and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.” Here the woman […]

There Is No Saint Without a Past

One of my favorite concepts in the Bible is found in this little snippet of James,  “Elijah was a man with a nature like ours” (5:17a, ESV). The KJV expresses the words “nature like ours” as meaning he was “subject to like passions as we are.” The context is prayer, saying that if a man like Elijah […]

Rising from the Ashes (Part 1 of 2)

I often marvel at God’s graciousness and wisdom in using our foolishness, lack of foresight, and even sin to His glory. Be it through Scripture, the reading of biographies, or from personal experiences this truth is readily visible to any who would ponder such a thought. Why would a good, pure, and holy God care […]
