Welcome to Christ’s By Grace

welcome to Christ's By Grace

Welcome to Christ’s by Grace, my home on the web. If you walked into my physical home, you would notice a couple of things. First, it is furnished in what might be called Late Century Consignment Store. Second, there are lots of books. We have fiction and non-fiction, books from every age, for every age.

But the book that we consult daily — and have for many years — is the Bible. It is not like any other book. The Bible, alone, is a must read. It enables us to take the information from all those other books and contextualize it for service in God’s kingdom.

So, in welcoming you to Christ’s by Grace, I want to make it clear that the Bible is the source from which its content flows. Like the consignment store furnishings in my home, the posts may borrow from memories, old and new. However, my primary aim is that the Scriptures would bring clarity, joy, and comfort as they unfold the amazing truths of the gospel. “For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Cor. 1:18).

Pa Rumpa Humbug!

One of my least favorite Christmas songs is Little Drummer Boy. We do not play it in my house. For many people, saying that puts me in company with Ebenezer Scrooge and the Grinch. To make matters worse, I am not a big fan of Santa, Rudolph, or Frosty the Snowman either. However, I find…
