Revelation Is Not a Scary Book

by Ladd

4 “To the seven churches in the province of Asia: Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings […]

The Biggest Lie

by Ladd

Without a doubt the biggest lie we tell ourselves spiritually is that if we change God will love us. The reason for this lie is that we project onto God what we feel about ourselves. We know the sinfulness of our thoughts, the poor motives for our actions, the indifference to things that are important […]

The Character of Love

The key to understanding 1 John is to remember chapter three verse twenty-three, “And this is His commandment, that we should believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as He has commanded us.” So what is the commandment that we are to keep according to the Epistle of […]

My Deliverer is Coming!

by Ladd

I was listening to a song called My Deliverer by Rich Mullins and the Ragamuffin Band on You Tube today and someone had overdubbed the song onto cuts from a movie on the Life of Christ. As I was watching and listening there was a clip of Peter cutting the ear off the servant of […]

God Is Head Over Heels In Love With You!

by Ladd

Ruth has fallen in love with Brennan Manning’s book The Ragamuffin Gospel. She keeps telling me that I need to read it because much of what I’m trying to say in these blog posts is so close to Manning’s thoughts on law, grace and love. She is convinced that I would be totally blessed by […]

The Power of Those Who Plunder

by Ladd

Sometimes in life we feel overwhelmed believing that nothing we can do or no one else’s intervention is able to alter the situation. Then we read words like these in Judges, “Then the Lord raised up judges, who saved them out of the power of those who plundered them.” (2:16) We have seen, from earlier […]

Invitation Back To the Garden

by Ladd

A friend of mine was recently talking to a friend of his about grace and the joy of experiencing Christ when suddenly his friend blurted out, “that’s nice but lets talk about the meat of the Bible.” When my friend recounted the conversation to me in an email I was a bit shocked that anyone […]

Two Amazing Verses!

by Ladd

1 “My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.” 1 John […]

The Core of the Cross

by Ladd

Peter’s sermon to Cornelius reminds us, “To Him all the prophets bear witness that every one who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins through His name,” Acts 10:43. The “Him,” of course, refers to Jesus Christ our Savior. The forgiveness of sins is no small thing, but we take it so for granted that […]
