My Friend Was Like Grass

My friend was like grass. His life was one of unassuming beauty. In the landscape of reality you would not notice him unless you took the time to look carefully.

If We Love God Most, We Will Love Others Best

Just One Verse

Just One Verse

Child-Like Humility Produces Peace

Arrow
The Wisdom of God in the Frustration of Man

The Wisdom of God in the Frustration of Man

Jon Bloom
Sometimes it takes a good 4,000 years or so to appreciate just how wise God is. With thousands of years of retrospect, we know more than ever that the wisest thing we can do is to trust God’s promises and purposes.
Arrow
The Most Powerful Apologetic Tool in the World

The Most Powerful Apologetic Tool in the World

Jon Bloom
The Bible itself is the greatest apologetic device that exists in the world. More people come to know and love Jesus Christ simply by reading the Bible than anything else.

How to Kill Sinful Anger

All sinful anger is hard to fight. It’s a selfish, hot-blooded passion our flesh enjoys indulging. But I find it particularly difficult to fight the sinful anger that I feel I have a right to feel.

God has important things to teach us about our doubts — and what kind of “seeing” really brings us joy.
Arrow
Enjoy a Good Laugh, Like God

Enjoy a Good Laugh, Like God

Jon Bloom
We will not cry for sorrow in glory, but we will laugh for joy. April Fools’ Day gives us an opportunity to taste heaven, and play Satan for the fool that he is.
Arrow
Come to the Light and Really Live

Come to the Light and Really Live

Jon Bloom
We men love to think of ourselves as light-seekers, brave souls on the noble quest for the naked truth. Our noble quest is put to the test when the Truth seeks us out. It turns out that we do not seek true light.
Arrow
God Rested on the Seventh Day

God Rested on the Seventh Day

Jon Bloom
No one yet understood that this Sabbath was far higher than any that had been kept since God’s ancient day of holy rest. And no one yet understood that this Passover was far holier than even the first Passover.
Arrow
The Secret to Peace and Contentment

The Secret to Peace and Contentment

Jon Bloom
The secret to Christian peace and contentment is not a gnostic secret. This secret is hidden in plain sight throughout the Scripture and is available to anyone who is willing to believe it.
Arrow
It’s Not a Talent Show

It’s Not a Talent Show

Jon Bloom
