Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Dave Stephenson blogs!


Dave Stephenson, elder of Grace Bible Church, who I consider to be a pastor, mentor, and friend, has recently (finally) begun blogging on the GBC website. I strongly encourage anyone reading this to check out the new blog, linked above.

Dave's articles (like his preaching) are thought-provoking and sure to either encourage you or make you angry, depending on how enslaved you might be to particular traditions. On thing I can guarantee– you won't be bored. :-)

Bible translation: The Song of the Beloved's Vineyard (Isaiah 5:1b-7)


1b My beloved had a vineyard on a very fertile hillside,
2 And he weeded it and freed it from stones,
And he planted it with a fine kind of vine,
And he built a watchtower in its midst,
And he also hewed out a winepress in it,
And he looked eagerly for it to yield grapes,
But it yielded sour grapes.
3 And now, O residents of Jerusalem and men of Judah,
Please judge between me and my vineyard.
4 What more was there to do in my vineyard
that I didn’t do for it?
Why, when I looked eagerly for a yield of grapes,
did it yield sour grapes?
5 And now, let me make known to y’all what I am doing for my vineyard:
Remove its hedge and it will be open to grazing!
Tear down its wall and it will be open to trampling.
6 And I will lay it waste:
It will not be pruned nor weeded,
but thorns and weeds will come up:
And I will order the rain-clouds away from raining any rain upon it.
7 Because the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel,
And the men of Judah are the plantation
in which he took delight.
And he eagerly looked for justice
-but behold!- there was bloodshed;
for righteousness- but behold!- there was a cry of distress.

New Family Blog

This week, inspired by our friends Nathan and Courtney White, my beloved wife Abby created a blog on which to post our family pictures so that friends and family can see how we are doing. (We expect our family will be especially interested in pictures of baby Christian once he is born.) The new blog can be viewed HERE.
