"If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; ..."
—2 Corinthians 1:6

Our salvation is not wrought in an isolated, solitary, and independent existence. The whole body of Christ is altogether sanctified in unity, one with another. If we are bearing one another's burdens and suffering the same trials as our brother, we may rejoice to know that Christ who comforts the one with also comfort the other. And in such a way, your brother's afflictions are a means of your own sanctification and salvation. Serve and comfort your brother in his affliction so that you may be sanctified and conformed to the image of Christ.

The making of a beautiful and happy home!

(J.R. Miller)

A true home is one of the most sacred of places. It is a sanctuary into which men flee from the world's perils and alarms. It is a resting-place to which, at close of day--the weary retire to gather new strength for the battle and toils of tomorrow. It is the place . . .
  where love learns its lessons,
  where life is schooled into discipline and strength,
  where character is molded.

Few things we can do in this world are so well worth doing--as the making of a beautiful and happy home! He who does this--builds a sanctuary for God, and opens a fountain of blessing for men.

Far more than we know--do the strength and beauty of our lives, depend upon the home in which we dwell. He who goes forth in the morning from a happy, loving, prayerful home--into the world's strife, temptation, struggle, and duty--is strongly inspired for noble and victorious living.

The children who are brought up in a true home--go out trained and equipped for life's battles and tasks--carrying a secret of strength in their hearts, which will make them brave and loyal to God, and will keep them pure in the world's severest temptations!

All things are Thine; no gift have we,
Lord of all gifts, to offer Thee:
And hence with grateful hearts today
Thine own before Thy feet we lay.

"…As in all the churches of the saints, the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church." —1 Corinthians 14:33–35

Frequently these verses are cited when there is discussion about the role of women in the church. They are told to be quiet and to discuss the topics from the meeting of the church at another time. While I believe this is the primary goal of the passage and the main point being addressed, this passage also brings to light a very important duty which ought to be the prerogative of every husband.

The latter part of the passage states, "If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home." Here we are told that the husband's duty is to instruct his wife in biblical knowledge.This is also attested to by the Apostle when he said "cleanse… her by the washing of water with the word" (Eph 5:26). 

The husband's responsibility to teach his wife anything she desires to learn is predicated upon him having a working knowledge of the totality of the Scriptures. The apostle Paul is expecting the husbands to be able to teach their wives, and assumes that they have the biblical understanding necessary to do so. 

Every man's delight ought to be in the study of the Law of God. The study of the Scriptures should bring joy to the soul of a man, and inculcating the precepts found therein, to the heart and mind of another, should be a source of great happiness.

Sadly, too few Christian men these days have the capacity of knowledge to teach their wives even the basic tenants of the Christian faith. They are content to let the pastor do that. They are content to continue in their biblical illiteracy; spending a paltry amount of time each day (if any at all) reading the Scriptures, yet content to indulge in the vices and pleasures of the world for hours on end. They do this, not only to their own shame and condemnation, but also those under their jurisdictions.

Our Lord Jesus Christ has sent us into the world to proclaim his Gospel of Truth. How can we obey our commission if we are not diligently studying the Word of God and meditating on it day and night? Men need to return to obeying the commands of Christ—but first they must learn what they are. We must strive to know the counsel of the Lord and what our duties are as subjects of His Kingdom. We are called to lay aside every sin which besets us and to persevere in our commission and our duties. 

By the grace of God, I am resolved to do this—"to present [myself] to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth" (2 Tim 2:15). May the Lord stand by me and strengthen me in this course. I pray that He may do so for all men in Christendom.

This last week, I had the honor of shooting engagement photos for one of my best friends +Jonathan Maness, and his betrothed wife, +Callan Seargeant. These photos clearly illustrate their joy they share in Christ. It is a beautiful site when a young man and woman clearly illustrate the fear of the Lord.

Photographed at River Rock Event Center, Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas.

Location is out of the way and not on Google Maps in the right spot. The room was quiet and generally clean. The fridge had mold in it. We got a non smoking room but the hallway and doorway smelled like smoke. There was also an overfilled trash can outside the hotel main entrance that smelled horrible. The free breakfast had burnt coffee, toast, cereal, and waffles, and pastries. Service at the welcome counter wasn't the most friendly but not terribly rude. I asked if they had a fan that we could use in our room and was given a blank look and then a rude "no". Would not likely stay here again.

Staff humiliated children with a public scolding for playing at a table because another child didn't want to wait his turn. I could go on but suffice to say we won't be returning.

Enjoyed a delicious meal with my wife last night. She chose the Reuben Sandwich and it was unbelievable — giant slabs of beef with plenty of sauerkraut and cheese! I went with the Sausage and Portobello Mushroom Flatbread. Good balance of spice, though not as filling as the sandwich. We wanted to try the craft beer on tap so we went with a flight of Blue Moon Belgian White (paired great with the reuben), Stella Artois Belgium (excellent choice with the flatbread,) and Pearl Street Me, Myself, and IPA. Unfortunately the music volume was very loud and lyrics included profanities.
