There is much talk in the church today about "inheritance". From healing and the ending of injustices to great revival and financial prosperity, what some have haphazardly or intentionally called the "inheritance" of the believer either falls far short or is completely set against the Bible's description of our inheritance. Put simply, we have mistaken our childhood $5/week 'allowance' for an opulent estate and ownership of the family business.

A day is coming when God will dwell among men on the earth again (Revelation 21:3), when there is no more death, sorrow, crying...

In today's Christianity, "Christ" has become a synonym for "Jesus", and "Lord" has become a synonym for "master". But for the early church, Lord and Christ had significant meaning.

In this teaching, Stephen Venable analyzes Peter's sermon in Acts 2. By His resurrection, Jesus was confirmed to be the Christ, the anointed king who would sit on David's throne in Jerusalem. By His ascension, Jesus was confirmed to be the Lord, the Creator and Sustainer of all things, because He took His seat on God's throne at His right hand.

The significance of this truth cannot be...

Over the past several years my friendship with Jesus has grown tremendously by studying His life. The 89 chapters of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John offer far more than surface-level details about our Lord. The more I've sought clarity about Him through the four Gospels, the more I've realized that I've had some wrong assumptions about Him. Because I care about Him, I care about people knowing the truth about Him. So this post is the first of several where I'll talk about some common misconceptions about Jesus' life. I...

Throughout this Advent season, I've been narrating the circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus in several episodes of Opening Up the Gospels.

Advent is a term originally derived from the Latin word adventus, meaning "coming" or "arrival". During Advent, the Christian church remembers Jesus' first coming and joyfully anticipates His second. From His lowly birth in a feed trough to His humble life among the people of Israel, Advent is a focused time to remember God's humility and faithfulness and to “fan the flame” of expectation for Jesus’ return to gloriously rule the earth from Jerusalem and to be worshipped as LORD by every living creature.

This year, Advent runs from Sunday, December 1st through Tuesday, December 24th...
