Hope in the Midst of Lament: A Meditation on Psalm 22

April 20, 2014

We all face a problem. It is the biggest problem in the world. It is bigger than our national debt. It is more grandiose than the problem of finding water where we are running out. It is more difficult than finding a small black box on a vast ocean floor three miles below the surface. […]

Love the Church

April 10, 2014

In Ephesians 5:25-27 Paul writes about the love Jesus has for the church. He loves the church so much that he gave his life for the church (Eph. 5:25). The church is the bride of Christ. The church is something we should love and cherish. What does this mean? What does it mean to love […]

The Problem With Liberal and Conservative Labels

March 22, 2014

The rally call of the restoration movement was to be Christians only. Preachers and others called people to give up labels that caused division and just be Christians. Sadly, we have gotten away from this restoration principle and we have both accepted and given labels that are not found in Scripture. The labels that now […]

Mending the Cracks

March 4, 2014

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will […]

Letters To My Children

March 2, 2014

Dear Children, I wish you lived in a world full of grace. I wish you lived in a world where people were always kind, merciful, and treated people better than they deserve. Sadly, this is not the case and if you haven’t learned this already, then you will soon. This world is harsh and unkind. […]

The Greatest Threat to the Church

February 24, 2014

And when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep. And they went and woke him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” And he said to them, “Why are […]

Musings

February 14, 2014

Social Media I have read several great posts regarding social media lately. In Seductress or Servant: Managing the Addictive Power of Social Media Dan Bouchelle tells his story regarding the dangers and addictions of social media. In I Tweet, & Apollos Blogs, But God… Michael Whitworth asks us to consider why we are using social […]

Why Facebook is Hurting Christianity

February 4, 2014

I love Facebook. I have been on Facebook for eight years now. I first created an account in 2006, and I have used it for various purposes. It is great for keeping up with friends, whom I never get to see. I interact with people I went to high school with, and I haven’t seen […]

The Importance of Conversations

January 10, 2014

Part of being human is having conversations and part of living in community is conversing with one another. The conversations we have matter. Most of us cannot go a day without having a conversation, but what kind of conversations are we having? What are they about? What is the content of these conversations? We have […]

I’m Pressing On

January 2, 2014

One of my favorite books in the New Testament is Philippians and one of my favorite passages from that book is found in chapter 3. Paul writes, Not that I have already obtained this or have already reached the goal; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me […]
