This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem: In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and all nations will stream to it. Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go […]

Are you Expecting Average?

“Average people become that way because they change their expectations. They expect to be average, and sadly they are okay with being average. Average is pretty safe….” – Andy Traub I am not sure when it happens. We most often start life seeing every new day as a grand adventure. Around every corner lies something […]

Fragile Clay Jars

We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. – 2 Corinthians 4:7 (NLT) It is true that Jesus really does not need our help but throughout the Bible […]

A Christian Nation – Not the President’s Job

At this moment we are in one of the most contentious presidential elections in the history of the United States. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, two polarizing figures, have risen to become the primary choices to be our next President.

Racism – A Call for a Bold Response

This past week our nation has faced the bloody effects of the racial tension that continues to tear our great nation apart. It is easy to try and find someone to blame but the reality is that seven people have lost their lives. No longer can they go home to their kids. No longer can […]

Christians are not Called to Protest

Here in the U.S. we find law after law being passed that are affronts to God’s Word. Many local communities try to curb the growth of churches through zoning laws. The news reports run rampant about Pastors who fall way short of living out their calling but they never report the positive impact many churches […]

The Anonymous Leader

Ralph Mayhew describes his latest book, The Anonymous Leader: An Unambitious Pursuit of Influence, as being, “… about fading away and becoming nothing so Jesus Christ can become everything through your life and leadership.”  I agree that this short quote describes his book well. Mayhew’s book stands out in stark contrast against all the books […]

Be More than a Dreamer

I may be 51 but I am a really big kid. For the past two years we have gone to Disney World for our family vacation (our third time since 2012). And who knows, we may go again this year. I love every single magical moment. Also, I am intrigued by how they make it […]

Focus – My One Word for 2016

Last year was the first year I chose a single word to define my year. Last year’s word was “Generous.” Yes I will still be generous this year; however, for this year my word will be “Focus.” I always say that I am a slow learner but as I have crossed over into my second […]

A Cause Greater Than a Flag

I am literally sick over the ongoing racial debates on social media. Just a few weeks ago it was the issue in McKinney and now the Confederate flag. Like the Bible, people find it easy to cherry pick history to prove their point. However, it is unlikely you will change someone’s mind or their heart. […]
