Don’t Get the Wrong Christ

It should come as no surprise that Jesus Christ is the centerpiece and lynchpin of Christianity. I mean, it’s kind of in the name: Christ-ianity, Christianity. Jesus is the one on whom we fix our eyes, and Jesus is the one who constitutes Christianity. Without Him, it all falls apart, and there is no Christianity.…

Proof of God’s Love

Have you ever wondered if God loves you? Well, Apostle John in 1 John 3 argues that all the proof we need is found in the death of Jesus Christ. He writes in 1 John 3:16, “By this we know love, that Jesus laid down his life for us.” That’s certainly what Jesus did. He…

Spiritual Paternity Test

Who is your father? What’s his name? My father is James William Simpson, and I was born to him in February of 1980. Most folks know who their physical father is, but if you don’t, tests are available to help you identify who that man is. They are called a paternity tests. Maury Povich basically…

Don’t Be Deceived by Deceit

As we walk in this broken world, we have to remain vigilant because deception is everywhere. And when it comes to deceit, the devil is very wily. He knows that if he comes at you with an outright lie, you’ll easily recognize that. And so instead, he follows a recipe, which the renowned evangelist Billy…

They Went Out From Us

One of the most concerning scenarios we face in the Christian life is when we have a person around us, around our church, in our life, who seems to be a follower of Jesus. They made a profession of faith. They were baptized. They attended church faithfully. Maybe they even served in some capacity. But…

Good Friday

Today is the day in Holy Week we call Good Friday. That name is quite oxymoronic because Good Friday in a sense was a very dark day. It was the day that Jesus was crucified. Oh to see the dawn of the darkest day, Christ on the road to Calvary, Tried by sinful men, torn…

Spy Wednesday

As we continue our observance of Holy Week, today we come to what has traditionally been called Spy Wednesday. Today we remember the moment where Judas Iscariot slipped off from Jesus and the disciples to make a deal with the Jewish leaders there in Jerusalem to betray Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. The leaders…

Zealous Monday

Welcome to Holy Week 2024! What is Holy Week? Holy Week is the remembrance of the week between Palm Sunday where Jesus triumphantly entered Jerusalem and Easter Sunday where Jesus was marvelously resurrected in Jerusalem. Yesterday was Palm Sunday. Today is what I call Zealous Monday. It’s the day that Jesus cleansed the temple there…

Who Do You Love the Most?

One of the most impactful moments in Apostle Peter’s life was when Jesus, after Peter had denied knowing him and after Jesus’s crucifixion and resurrection, asked Peter if he loved him. Peter said, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus and Peter ended up doing this three times. And each time, after Peter…

The Day I Met My Father

I still remember the moment like it was yesterday. It was the spring of 1997. I had just finished an offseason football workout that day after school. And I jumped in my black 1978 Cutlas Supreme and headed home. As I was traveling down Girkin Rd, I was just extra burdened that day. My 17yo…
