5 Top Posts in 2016

It’s always interesting for me to see which of my posts get read the most. For a couple of years now in a row my posts on how husbands can help their wives submit has been the most popular post on my blog with tens of thousand of views. This tells me that indeed the marriage relationship is one of the most critical of all human relationships and is in desperate need of Biblical truth and practice.

A somewhat more recent post about imprecatory prayers made #2 on the list. I wrote that post after the war broke out in Eastern Ukraine and many in churches here struggled with knowing what the Christian response should be when the enemy crosses your border and begins to murder your fellow countrymen.

My prayer is that my writings have encouraged, challenged, and aided you in your understanding of God’s Word and in your spiritual growth in 2016! I also hope that you were able to pray more effectively for us and for the churches here as a result of the content on this blog!

I guess a big smack square on the lips from a man who is four times your age isn’t what most teenage boys hope for. On the other hand it is quite Biblical!
