No Reserves, No Retreats, No Regrets

September 13, 2014

In closing his message on 2 Timothy 4:7, Pastor John MacArthur shared the following story about William Borden, heir of the Borden dairy fortune. I had never heard of Borden’s story before, but it greatly blessed me especially during this season of my life: In 1904 a young man graduated from high school in Chicago, […]

Rebuke Rightly

In our modern day of sissified christianity, those who preach an unbalanced message of love and tolerance would rebuke even the Apostle Paul for how he spoke to the false prophet, Elymas, who sought to snatch the seeds of truth out of the heart of one who had ears to hear God’s Word: When they […]

May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. – Colossians 1:11-12 In Colossians chapter 1, Paul prays the church would be filled with the knowledge […]

A couple of weeks ago I  had the extraordinary privilege to attend The Master’s Seminary Regional Banquet in Greensboro, North Carolina. These banquets are intended to serve and encourage alumni, to nurture personal relationships with seminary supporters, and to reach out to prospective seminary students. Dr. Richard Mayhue, Senior Vice President and Dean of The Master’s […]

The Evangelist’s Commitment to the Local Church

October 24, 2012

Comments Off

In the last article, The Fellowship in Evangelism, I took a close look at Paul’s letter to the Philippians and showed how the evangelist is not only to preach the Gospel, but he is to love and serve the Body of Christ. I might have made it part one of this article, because it really […]

The Fellowship in Evangelism

October 22, 2012

In opening his letter to the Philippian church, Paul wrote, I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in evangelism from the first day until now… Wait a minute, that must have been a typo. I believe the text reads […]

2012 Reading Goals

January 3, 2012

I’ve never been much of a fan of New Year’s resolutions.  My observations and experience have been that these resolutions are futile attempts to improve one’s life whether health-wise, spiritually, socially, financially, or any number of different areas of life.  Then condemnation may set in after one misses one or two marks on their journey […]

2011 has been a great year for airō.  The Lord allowed for me to transition from blogger to WordPress, which has caused an increase in traffic for a number of reasons.  The Lord also blessed me to become a contributor for the Christian Research Network shortly after the transition.  The consequences of these changes have […]

Thin-skinned Christians and Accountability

December 13, 2011

The American church continues to give evidence of its ever-deteriorating state.  No longer can we, without rebuke, “equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12) that we might “no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of […]

Tim Tebow’s Christian Evangelism

December 9, 2011

Denver Bronco’s quarterback Tim Tebow has been in the news a whole lot lately.  Since I don’t follow the NFL very much anymore, the only thing I really know about him is what I pick up in various news stories, whether they are condemning Tebow for so actively and publicly sharing his faith, or giving […]
