Why Did God Make Me This Way? A Letter To A 6 Year Old
King’s Hill Church Boston Blog

Dear My Lovely Lilyana, You’ve been a trooper these past several years. I know the frequent flare ups of eczema are uncomfortable. Itchy skin is not fun, especially when you’re trying to fall asleep at night. Several nights ago you asked when mom was treating your skin, “Why did God make me this way?” I could tell you were curious but I could also tell you were a little sad. As your dad, I love your question because it shows me just how wise you are even at six years old. Your question tells me that you believe God made you. You are right to give God the credit for this. The Bible tells us in ..read more

The Internal Path of Knowledge
King’s Hill Church Boston Blog
by Kevin Henderson

How often have you read something about God, listened to a sermon, or discussed the Bible with a friend or in a life group, and then weeks have gone by and nothing has changed in your life? I’ve been there often. You know that you learned about God or what he desires for your life, but that knowledge never moves out of your head. It’s often said the longest distance is the 18 or so inches that it takes for knowledge to go from your head to your heart. The distinction between head knowledge and the heart, the human will, is that until our heart responds to truth our lives will not be conformed ..read more

Why gospel teaching is for every believer
King’s Hill Church Boston Blog
by Jacob Stubbs
1M ago
As believers, when we think of the teaching that happens within the church, our minds often go to the preaching that happens on a Sunday morning. This is for good reason, of course. God has placed faithful men to be elders of his church who are given the responsibility and must meet the qualification of teaching (1 Timothy 3:2). While this time of preaching and teaching is and should be valued, it is not the only place and time teaching should be happening in the church. We see teaching happening in the early church throughout the New Testament. To name a couple examples: we see older women t ..read more

Soul Care
King’s Hill Church Boston Blog
by Jacob Stubbs
1M ago
A common phrase that gets thrown around a lot today is “self-care” – generally speaking, taking actions that are restful or enjoyable to an individual. There is nothing wrong with this, of course. In the Bible, God models rest for us in creation and reemphasizes it in practices like the Sabbath. Depending on the person, however, “self-care” can be fairly surface level or not reach our whole being; it may not be reaching the soul. In Scripture, we see that we are created beings with both, “body and soul”. This distinction is seen in the Psalms and the book of Proverbs, but we also see it speci ..read more

Life-Giving Friendships
King’s Hill Church Boston Blog

The term “friendship” is rather general. I think when we talk about friends in conversation, it doesn’t always paint the most descriptive picture. I think this is why whenever we want to communicate the nature of a relationship, we have with someone, we say things like “my good friend”, “my friend I grew up with”, “my best friend”, “my work friend”, or “my friend that’s more like a brother.” At the end of the day, I think what we all mean by “friend” is someone you enjoy voluntarily spending time with. That definition is fitting for our common vernacular, but what does the Bible say about fri ..read more

How Can I Grow in Patience?
King’s Hill Church Boston Blog
by Soriah Hassanizadeh
3M ago
A member of my immediate family (I won’t say who) has a habit of anxiously tapping their foot while waiting for anything and I tend to get unreasonably annoyed at repetitive noises. It’s a terrible combination. Their restlessness sparks a restlessness in me and suddenly we are both on razor’s edge, ready to snap at each other. Both of us lack patience but in two different ways. Sometimes it can be easy to think we’ve grown in patience, but that’s because our definition of patience is far too narrow. Maybe the person who doesn’t get road rage gets easily frustrated when they don’t complete a t ..read more

Is Our Hope Believable? Apologetics for the Christian Faith
King’s Hill Church Boston Blog
by Jonathan Moseley
3M ago
There are far greater blogs on apologetics than what I can offer, but nonetheless, we all must answer the question, “Why do I believe in Jesus?” It’s a worthy question to answer thoughtfully because as we seek to be effective in evangelism, we will come across people of various backgrounds and belief systems. Paul spoke differently to the Jews in Acts 13 than he did to the Gentiles in Lystra in Acts 14. He was able to draw upon Old Testament Scriptures with the former but he appealed to general revelation with the latter. Still, he displayed his evangelism flexibility when speaking at the Are ..read more

Why does our church use The Valley of Vision?
King’s Hill Church Boston Blog
by Jacob Stubbs
4M ago
As a church, we recently started using The Valley of Vision in our worship services during our time of congregational prayer. The Valley of Vision is a collection of prayers and devotions compiled from various Puritan writings. We certainly are not the only church who uses this book as a supplemental, referential text. Since its publication, many pastors, worship leaders, and other Christians have found these prayerful, devotional writings to be a source and guide in times of both corporate and personal worship. With the, at best, complicated past of the Puritans, you may wonder why The Valle ..read more

Can Women Be Deacons? Humbly, Yes.
King’s Hill Church Boston Blog
by Jonathan Moseley
4M ago
This is a question of considerable consequence. If the Bible says ‘no’ to this question and we proceed to appoint women into this office anyway, then we undermine the blueprint for the governance God has prescribed for his church and fail to call men to higher levels of service. If the Bible says ‘yes’ to this question, yet we forfeit women’s opportunity to serve in this way, we actually oppress a daughter of God from flourishing in her giftings and calling. To start this discussion, if you have a stance on this question, I would ask, 1-10 (1 being not confident at all and 10 being totally an ..read more

How Do I Put God First In My Decisions?
King’s Hill Church Boston Blog
by Jonathan Moseley
4M ago
I love pastoring in the city of Boston. One reason is because we often meet people at a crossroads in their life. They have significant upcoming decisions and we want to help them think about what it looks like to put kingdom over self, what it could look like to serve in places of Gospel scarcity over places with Gospel abundance, to truly ponder their next move with God’s glory, eternal souls, and the commission Jesus has given us to make disciples. After all, we are told by Jesus: But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (Matthew 6 ..read more
