I’ve been a fan of the rock band King’s X for many years and am currently reading King’s X: The Oral History, a book by Greg Prato that chronicles the history of the band entirely through quotes from the band, those who have worked with the band, music journalists, and other musicians. They have a … Continue reading “Do You Have a Caged-Up Gorilla in Your Trunk?”

Last week I posted about Psalm 36:8, where David thanks God that His people may “drink from the river of your delights.” Since the word for “delights” is the plural of Eden, these occasional sips God provides us point to a past and future paradise. These delights strengthen our hope of heaven and strengthen us … Continue reading “The Transfiguration: A Preview of Glory and Delight”

This John was identified with “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord; make his paths straight’” prophesied by Isaiah. Today I want to describe … Continue reading “Let God Speak to Your Inner Wilderness”
