Dave’s Monday Blast – June 19, 2017

In the New Testament, Christians are called by many different names—brothers, sisters, believers, ambassadors, disciples, children, or saints. Generally we have no objections to being called by these titles, but there’s another one that may not seem quite as appealing—servant. To make matters worse, the Greek word that is often translated as servant or bond […]

2 Timothy is the Apostle Paul’s last letter. It is a bit like a “Last Will and Testament”. It is a very personal letter to his protégé Timothy. He writes while in prison, and at the end of his life. His personal circumstances are dire. In the flesh, the future looks bleak, not only for […]

I was reading this article the other day by Pastor Andrew McCourt on the book of 2 Timothy. It is an incredible book written by the Apostle Paul to his protégé Timothy 2,000 years ago, and packed with relevant truth for today. Three quick things to know about 2 Timothy: This is Paul’s last letter […]

Today is Memorial Day. I suspect most of us have experienced some loss specific to this day of remembrance. My thanks to all who have provided the ultimate sacrifice. I appreciate you bearing with me as we have spent a month unpacking the 10 Disciplines of a Godly Man. Using 1 Timothy 4:7-8 as our […]

Over the last three weeks we have been unpacking a terrific study by R. Kent Hughes entitled the 10 Disciplines of a Godly Man. I love this study! It is an INTENTIONAL effort to help Men of God embrace the urgency of Paul’s admonition to his protégé Timothy, as found in 1 Timothy 4:7-8. Paul reminds Timothy that “while bodily training […]

Over the last two weeks we have been unpacking a study by R. Kent Hughes entitled the 10 Disciplines of a Godly Man. Hughes reminds us that men will never get anywhere in life without discipline, and doubly so in spiritual matters. Men of Intention MUST BE committed to “training themselves for godliness” (1 Timothy 4:7-8). This takes a great […]

Last week we began to unpack an article by R. Kent Hughes entitled the 10 Disciplines of a Godly Man. The spring board is an admonition from the Apostle Paul to his protégé, Timothy, as recorded for us in 1 Timothy 4:7-8; “Train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in […]

My friend Rob passed along this great resource to me a while ago. It is called “10 Disciplines of a Godly Man” written by R. Kent Hughes. I believe you will be as challenged by these ideas as I have been. We were made to reflect His Image (Genesis 1:26). INTENTIONAL men know this requires discipline. None of us are inherently […]

I discovered a little something the other day…did you know that there is only one recorded prayer in the book of Proverbs? A man named “Agur son of Jakeh” who defines himself in verse 2 as being “more stupid” (I know great grammar) than any other man. I love this guy! I think I am pretty […]

Last week, ISIS attacked two Coptic churches in Egypt ending the earthly lives of 44 Christians and leaving 122 injured. This tragedy leads some to question why an all-knowing, all-loving, and all-powerful God, who knew the attacks would happen, did nothing to prevent them. Pastor Jim Denison reminds us “God did not cause these attacks. […]
