Son of God, pt 1 – Steve Lambert

What does it mean that Jesus is the Son of God? Part 1. Can I confess something?  For a long time, I was scared of the first chapter of Hebrews.  I had heard over and over again that it was one of the most powerful texts on the full divinity of Jesus, but when I […]

God’s Promises Regarding COVID-19 – Steve Lambert

This week, when my wife Becky went grocery shopping, she had a brief conversation with the cashier, which started started off being about the amount of coffee she was buying.  As Becky explained that she was shopping for our church’s food bank, the cashier said that she also went to church and that every day […]

The Story of the Bible – Steve Lambert

Whenever you read a book, you have to take into consideration what kind of book it is.  You don’t read all kinds of books the same way. For instance, you don’t read a cook book in the same way you read a novel.  And you don’t read an encyclopedia the same way you read a […]

Entering The Psalms – Steve Lambert

The late author and pastor Eugene Peterson has said that the Psalms are unique in the Bible in that “most of scripture speaks to us; the Psalms speak for us” (Working the Angles, 55).  The Psalms teach us how to come to God in prayer, but they can be very confusing for many Christians.  Many of the Psalms seem […]

Prayers of Doubt – Steve Lambert

What does faith look like in the face of doubt and despair?  How do we pray when we aren’t sure that God is listening or that He cares?  Most of us don’t know how to answer those questions. We find them awkward and disturbing.  We like to think, or to pretend that Christians don’t ever […]
