Over the course of the last 11 months, my friend Dawn Klinge and I have been writing articles about doctrine, theology, and significant Bible topics.
These articles have been carefully researched, prayed over, and shared with the hope that many people will want to dig in and learn more.
It’s been our joy to share these posts with you this year.
You can read any and all of the posts by heading over to the Delight in Doctrine page HERE.
Or, you can browse through all of the topics on our Pinterest board, “Delight in Doctrine.” To go to that board, click HERE.
With just a few weeks to go in this year-long series, we thought we’d pause today and shine a spotlight on those articles which have shown the best response.

#7 – Who and “what” is the Holy Spirit, really?
This may be one of the most misunderstood concepts in the church today.
The Holy Spirit: Who is He? What does He do? How does He impact us and work in our lives? And, why on earth do we call Him a “Ghost?”

And, you may be embarrassed to ask for help in this area. You hate to raise your hand in a group and ask for some basic instructions on how to get started.
Or, you may be one of my friends who wants to take your prayer life to the next level. What a wonderful goal!
Whether you are a prayer newbie, a prayer novice, a prayer wimp, or a prayer warrior – you can improve and enhance your prayer life.

#2 – How did the books of the Bible get chosen?
This is a question of extreme importance because, as Christians, we believe:
The Bible is God’s Word in written form.
The church is built on the word of God.
Theology serves the church in creating conformity with the word of God.
In order to trust and obey God, we have to be certain that the collection of words in the Scripture are, in fact, God’s own words to us.
So, how were the books chosen? To find out, click HERE.
#1 – Why Pray (if God already knows everything anyway)?
So, why do we pray?
He’s almighty, sovereign, and in control of all things.
What could we possibly add to His wisdom with our feeble attempts at prayer?
It’s a great question.
To answer it, I’d like to propose 6 great reasons for us to pray.
To read these, click HERE.
Join us as we take a clear and practical look at some of the most basic and essential tenets of the Christian life – the doctrines of the faith.
Each week, we highlight and explain a core doctrine. Then, we pose the question, “Why does this matter to you and me?”
You can catch all of this year’s “Delight in Doctrine” posts by clicking HERE.
For the purposes of the study, our main texts are first, the Bible, of course, and Wayne Grudem’s classic, Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine.
It is our prayer that by the end of the year, we all find more delight in understanding what we believe and why we believe it.
“…And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27 (ESV)
