Practicing Righteousness

  • May 7, 2017 | Brad Baugham | 1 John 3:4-10

The safest road to Hell is the gradual one—the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.

C. S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters


Beholding God and Becoming Like Him

  • April 30, 2017 | Brad Baugham | 1 John 2:28-3:10

Cheap grace is the deadly enemy of our Church … . Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, Communion without confession … . Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate… . But those who try to use this grace as a dispensation from following Christ are simply deceiving themselves.

— Dietrich Bonhoeffer


Our Father Who Loved Us

  • April 23, 2017 | Brad Baugham | 1 John 2:28-3:10

Do I, as Christian, understand myself? Do I know my own real identity? My own real destiny? I am a child of God. God is my Father; heaven is my home; every day is one day nearer. My Savior is my brother; every Christian is my brother too. Say it over and over to yourself first thing in the morning, last thing at night, as you wait for the bus, any time when your mind is free, and ask that you may be enabled to live as one who knows it is all utterly and completely true.

— J. I. Packer


The most important thing in the world is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If Jesus is alive, then there is hope for the world. If He is still in the grave, then there isn’t the slightest glimmer of hope on the horizon. Outside of the resurrection of Jesus, I do not know of any other hope for this world.

— German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer


Praising King Jesus: Palm Sunday

  • April 9, 2017 | Brad Baugham | Luke 19

The tattered outlaw of the earth,
Of ancient crooked will;
Starve, scourge, deride me: I am dumb,
I keep my secret still.
Fools! For I also had my hour;
One far fierce hour and sweet:
There was a shout about my ears,
And palms before my feet.

— The Donkey, by G. K. Chesterton

The Love of the Father

  • March 19, 2017 | Brad Baugham | 1 John 2:15-17

Do you think I am trying to weave a spell? Perhaps I am; but remember your fairy tales. Spells are used for breaking enchantments as well as for inducing them. And you and I have need of the strongest spell that can be found to wake us from the evil enchantment of worldliness which has laid upon us for nearly a hundred years.

— C. S. Lewis


Cherishing the Word and Conquering the Devil

  • March 12, 2017 | Brad Baugham | Read 1 John 2:12-14

For every look at self—take ten looks at Christ! Live near to Jesus—and all things will appear little to you in comparison with eternal realities… . Let your soul be filled with a heart-ravishing sense of the sweetness and excellency of Christ and all that is in Him. Let the Holy Spirit fill every chamber of your heart; and so there will be no room for folly, or the world, or Satan, or the flesh.

—Robert Murray McCheyne
