You Can’t Arrest the Gospel

You Can’t Arrest the Gospel

David Mathis
For 350 years, the church on American soil has enjoyed relatively little affliction for her fidelity to the Scriptures. The United States, though, is an anomaly in church history. And those days are passing, more quickly than many of us expected.

Generosity Begins at Home

Generosity Begins at Home

How to Fight Dragon-Sickness

How to Fight Dragon-Sickness

David Mathis

Communing with Christ on a Crazy Day

David Mathis

Five Tips for Bible Memory

Five Tips for Bible Memory

David Mathis
Memorizing the Scriptures not only molds our minds, but leads us to learn our Lord’s voice. As we listen over and over to the voice of the Shepherd, we accustom ourselves to his timbre and intonation. The more we…

Back to the Heart of Worship

Back to the Heart of Worship

David Mathis
The heart of worship is our heart, delighting in Jesus and expressing praise to him for the true things the Scriptures teach us about who he is and what he has done for us. Worship is, then, “all about” Jesus, not us.

The Great Commission as a Means of Grace

Nine Profits of Praying with Company

Nine Profits of Praying with Company

David Mathis
Prayer is one of the deepest joys of the Christian life. It is almost too good to be true that in Jesus we have the very ear of God. What an indescribable gift, that the God whose greatness is beyond…

When Prayer Comes Out of the Closet

When Prayer Comes Out of the Closet

Killjoys

John Piper, Johnathon Bowers, Ryan Griffith, David Mathis, Jason Meyer, Jonathan Parnell, Tony Reinke, Joe Rigney, and Marshall Segal
Relentless romance. Fierce warfare. Superior pleasure. Our hearts were designed to enjoy a full and forever happiness, not the pitiful temporary pleasures for which we’re too prone to settle. Pride, envy, anger, sloth, greed, gluttony, and lust are woefully inadequate…

The Power and Privilege of God’s Children

The Power and Privilege of God’s Children

David Mathis
It is difficult to overstate the place of private prayer. It is, in many ways, the measure of who we are spiritually, and how we pray “is as important a question as we can ever face.”

Resolved: To Read the Bible

Resolved: To Read the Bible

Take a Break from the Chaos
