What Label Would Jesus Choose?

July 30, 2014

I never got into the WWJD craze a few years ago. I never had a bracelet or a t-shirt. At the time I thought it was a little simplistic and I never have liked the idea of commercializing parts of the Christian faith. Putting the consumeristic aspect aside, WWJD is a helpful practice. Sometimes questions […]

What Kind of Person Do You Want to Become?

June 22, 2014

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. (2 Cor. […]

The Beauty of the Gospel

June 17, 2014

We are accustom to reading the Bible as truth, which it is, but if truth is the only thing we see then we are missing much of what the Bible has to offer. The Bible is also full of beauty. It reflects the glory we find in Jesus. To miss the beauty of Scripture is […]

The Power of Love

June 1, 2014

How do you define love? It might depend on who you ask. What kind of love are we talking about? Are we talking about the kind you read about in the latest Nicholas Sparks’ novel? Are we talking about that scene in your favorite romantic comedy that makes you feel all warm inside, or are […]

May 11, 2014

A sermon delivered at La Grange Church of Christ on May 11, 2014 (Mother’s Day) In The Cost of Discipleship Dietrich Bonhoeffer asked Christians to consider the cost of following Jesus. Before Mary ever considered the cost of following a Savior, she considered the cost of motherhood. Mary is one of the most important figures […]

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 […]
