The Cross, the form of marriage

The Cross is the nuptial bed on which is consummated the union of divine nature and human nature in the “one flesh” of Jesus. Nothing connotes this more powerfully than our Lord’s final “word” from the cross.

My love won’t find you

I really wanted (more than you know) a new TV; I really want a usable dining room table; I really want a good, stable job. Did I want my children with the same calculus of consumer desire? I hope the answer is no.

Convention called my bluff

You have worked long and diligently for this victory, and I hope it changes your lives for the better. I hope that it draws you closer to the heart of Christ and the fellowship of his church.
