Why We Need to Fear the Lord

by Jim Wallace

Jesus’ brief rebuke of two of his closest disciples, James and John, ought to make us pause and consider our own spiritual lives and ambitions.  “You do not know what kind of spirit you are of; for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them” (Luke 9:55-56a). The […]

Fear—Not Always a Bad Thing

by Jim Wallace

The unthinkable has happened. One hundred million Americans are on lockdown—ordered to stay home.  Fifty-five million American school children are at home—as states have cancelled classes for who knows how long.  Non-essential businesses are shuttered everywhere.  All mass gatherings have been cancelled or postponed—even, God forbid, sporting spectaculars such as March Madness and the 2020 […]
