A Compassionate Call to Counter Culture

I recently completed my reading of David Platt’s book Counter Culture: A Compassionate Call to Counter Culture in a World of Poverty, Same-sex Marriage, Racism, Sex Slavery, Immigration, Abortion, Persecution, Orphans and Pornography. If the title alone doesn’t grab you as intriguing, I don’t know what will. In light of many of the recent events […]

Disciples Labor to Cultivate Fruit of the Spirit

Whether you’ve spent time in a garden, lived on a farm or visited one, you’ve probably in some shape or form had the opportunity to experience what it’s like to cultivate something. This past school year, my younger daughter had the privilege of attempting to grow a sunflower. She came home with her eyes beaming […]

What Are You Doing In The Midst of This Great Shaking

It has been so interesting to note the number of people that I have been in contact who have been having dreams of earthquakes and shaking. This isn’t to say that there have been an actual increase in the number of earthquakes in actuality, but it is enough to note that within the past thirty […]

True Christianity is Worlds Apart from Everything Else

There has been much talk about faith in America lately. One misconception about the Christian faith is that it is like Judaism and Islam.

Why Square Pegs Will Never Fit Your Round Hole

Recently I decided to take another run through the book of Proverbs. As I was reading on one particular day I came across the fourth chapter in which Solomon points out the invaluable gift it was for him to have received great wisdom and understanding from the example set by his father David. It reminded […]

Discipleship is a Process in Maturity

As I’ve given my attention to what it means to be a disciple and how Jesus went about making disciples, the one thing that I’ve come to understand is that discipleship is a process in maturity. This means that discipleship is specifically designed to develop a person from one level of understanding to another. Paul […]

What You Can Do When You Are Distracted

Lately, I’ve noticed that there seems to be a great deal of distraction that has taken the attention of the Body of Christ off of the mission we’ve been called to, which is to make disciples. The call to make disciples is at the core of our commissioning as followers of Christ. The distractions of […]

Scars Don’t Have to be Scary

There are some people who hate the scars that line their bodies. There are others who actually fear scars and what it will do to their physical appearance. However, unless you’re a doctor or my wife, it is quite unlikely that you would never even know or see the scars that are on my body. […]
