A Lesson to Be Learned in this Age of Distinction

For quite some time, I’ve been sharing that this is becoming the Age of Distinction. If you’re not familiar with this, you can check out The Unfolding of An Age of Distinction by clicking the link. Simply put, the Age of Distinction is one in which I believe that God is not only highlighting the […]

Let This Be the Year That God Makes Up the Difference

As we crossed over into the new year it was an odd thing that the one word that I kept hearing was “deficit”. I kept asking the Lord, why this word! When most people are declaring a word for the new year or proclaiming that a particular word will be the word that they focus […]

Then Are You My Disciples [Part 4)]

In this last look at the ways in which Jesus showed love to his disciples, I want to emphasize the point that one of the ways in which he showed his love was in his teaching them. It’s not just that he taught them like so many who say, “Do as I say, not as […]

Then Are You My Disciples [Part 3]

In the previous discussions about ways in which Jesus showed love to his disciples, I covered forgiveness and compassion. This time I will discuss how Jesus showed love through caring. To look at first glace, you might say to yourself that this is the same as compassion. However, where compassion is a deep, heart felt, […]

The Responsibility of Prosperity

When most people hear or think about prosperity, they often envision an episode of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, hosted by the late Robin Leach. However, a biblical concept of prosperity goes far beyond what can be financially obtained. In fact, when Jesus teaches his disciples, he presents them with the thought, “What will […]

Then Are You My Disciples [Part 2]

There is by far no greater act that one can have for another than to have and show compassion for someone. When Jesus commanded his disciples to love one another as he had loved them, compassion was one of the great attributes by which they witnessed him loving them. In as much as forgiveness restores […]

When the Church Misses Out on Showing Mercy and Grace

Recently, a conversation was taking place where the discussion turned to the subject of the fathers/heroes of faith and the struggles that many of them faced during their lives. These “heroes” and “fathers” of faith weren’t the same ones we read about in the Bible in the Old Testament that did not have the benefit of […]

Jesus Feminist: An Invitation to Revisit the Bible’s View of Women [Book Review]

Lately, a great amount of attention has been given to feminism and the movement. For me, I can attest to having had my issues with what I’ve seen it become and how it has evolved over the years. Recent messages titled Jesus: The Founder of the Women’s Liberation Movement, by Kris Vallotton as well as conversations […]

A Concise History of the Christian World Mission: A Panoramic View of Missions from Pentecost to the Present [A Book Review]

One of my most recent readings really had an impact on me. As I am currently in a class that is taking a unique look at the challenges of world mission, I found reading J. Herbert Kane’s book on A Concise History of the Christian World Mission a fascinating exploration of how the gospel spread from the […]

The Homiletical Plot: The Sermon as a Narrative Art Form – [Review]

As a ministry student, I have the pleasure of reading a wide array of books that are designed to sharpen the skills of preachers. I know that when I first began ministry, I definitely could have used some sharpening to hone my speaking abilities. Despite having been a business major in high school and in undergrad, as well as […]
