  • Come out of Hiding!

    Where are you? This question can evoke many responses that take us in different directions. You can answer by giving me your location. You could even drop me a location pin to my IPhone. You could answer with some general sense of your state and season of life “I’m busy. I am so slammed right […]

  • Grace Has a Name!

    What is one word that could describe the Christmas story? This is the question PDT asks in his Dec. 7 devotional in O Come Let Us Adore Him. It may seem impossible, but Tripp insists it can be done. One word can sum up God’s response to humanity’s rebellion to God, to the lost state […]

  • Are you Ready?

    (Note: I have been using Paul David Tripp’s Advent devotional book “O Come Let Us Adore Him” as the basis for my December devotions so far. I will continue to do so most days, but I will also share some thoughts that I came up with all by myself! It happens every once in a […]

  • A Never Ending Glory Song

    Today’s devo from PDT reminds me of a Christmas video my kids (and me) would watch when they were younger. It was the story of Alabaster the angel. Alabaster was a young gap-toothed angel that sat atop a Christmas tree in the home of a young boy and his family. At night as the young […]

They are not just offering empty words. Advent is one of those reminders that God keeps […]

  • A Willing Savior for Unwilling Sinners

    Thank God Jesus was willing to give His life. A Willing Savior came for unwilling sinners. Paul David Tripp does an amazing job today in his devotional “O Come Let Us Adore Him, Dec. 2) in describing our unwillingness as a sinful people who want our own way. Here is how he describes our unwillingness: […]

  • Who Would Write This Story?

    If you read Paul David Tripp’s (PDT – get used to his initials) thoughts from Day one in in the devotional “O Come Let Us Adore Him,” he speaks of the incredible nature of the story of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. Wow! It really is a wild and crazy story. Sometimes I will watch […]
