Babes in Christ

Posted by Bill Lovell on

My family and I are just back from a wonderful family reunion in Colorado Springs. One of the highlights was seeing the twelve youngest cousins getting to know each other. Several had never met, and, outside of their individual family units, none of them really knew each other. After four...

Declaration of Dependence

Posted by Bill Lovell on

I love our country. I specifically love that we are a Christian country. I don't mean that every American is a Christian--that's never been the case--but it is a statistical fact that for all of our country's history--from the colonial era, right up to 2018--the great majority of Americans have...

Always Sinners

Posted by Bill Lovell on

I have recently been discussing the topic of whether it is possible for a Christian to live a sinless life. The short answer is Yes, it is possible; and what's more, Christians will one day live sinless lives, but only, as the Westminster Confession says, "in the state of glory," among "the...

Daily Bible study is a hallmark of serious discipleship. Reading the Bible and reflecting on it, every day, does more than almost anything else to help each of us to grow in Christ. Even a modest investment of time and effort, with God's grace, produces a bountiful harvest. A daily devotional...

Love God & Love Neighbor

Posted by Bill Lovell on

"Love God & Love Neighbor." That's the theme of this year's annual General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America. Representatives from PCA churches all across the country (including me) are gathering in Atlanta for a week of Biblical refection on Jesus' Greatest Commandment: "The...

Your Health is Dear to the Lord

Posted by Bill Lovell on

God cares about every aspect of your life, both physical and spiritual. In the Bible, he teaches us both what is good for us and what hurts us--not detailed scientific lists, but loving principles. In everything from the dietary laws of Deuteronomy and Leviticus to the wisdom of the Proverbs...

Christ's Church in Carrollton

Posted by Bill Lovell on

Christ Church Carrollton (Texas) met for the very first time on Sunday, July 18, 2010, but Christ's Church in Carrollton began a long time before we showed up--on May 10, 1846, to be exact--just ten years after the Alamo--when a band of Christian pioneers from Carrollton, Illinois, met together...

For The City

Posted by Bill Lovell on

One of Christ Church's values is community service "for the city." As servants of Jesus Christ, we aim to serve the people who live, work, play, pray and do business in Carrollton, Texas. In this aspect of our work, we take as our theme verse God's command in Jeremiah 29:7:  "Seek the...

Our Church Driveway

Posted by Bill Lovell on

I often call I-35E Christ Church Carrollton's driveway. Interstate 35 runs from Laredo, Texas, to Duluth, Minnesota, stretching 1,568 miles--virtually border to border--making it the nation's ninth-longest Interstate and the third-longest north-south Interstate. It splits between...

Dr. Ron Anderson

Posted by Bill Lovell on

Earlier today I made the one-hour round trip to and from Parkland Hospital. Have you been there lately? It really is quite extraordinary! As I parked and made my way inside, I immediately formed two opinions: (1) I was amazed by the size, beauty and technological sophistication of Dallas...
