Whitewashed Tombs

Whitewashed Tombs

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of the bones of the dead and every kind of impurity. In the same way, on the outside you seem righteous to people, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.” – […]

Why Details Matter

Back in 2013 I wrote a post about how your big picture is overrated. Yes a complete vision (your big picture) of what you want to accomplish is important but if we fail to know the needed details for today we will never make our big picture a reality. That is why details matter. I […]

House – Home – Life

It seems like a distant memory – Smoke poured forth from the chimney on the cool November evening. It was almost Thanksgiving. Two little kids, brother and sister, peer from the upstairs window. They anxiously await the arrival of their cousins or perhaps their dad with the turkey fresh from the butcher. Soon enough the […]

Is Jesus Enough?

Instead, I have calmed and quieted my soul like a weaned child with its mother; my soul is like a weaned child. – Psalm 131:2 (CSB) I am still amazed when I have read a Bible verse dozens of time and that one time it suddenly jumps out and grabs me. I have been preaching […]

It’s Easy to Be a Critic

“Critics don’t change the future, creators do.” – Terry Weaver If you spend any time at all on social media and / or the blogosphere, it will not take long to find the critics. They love to find the smallest details to rail against. They are skilled at turning the biggest non-issue into the biggest […]

The Christian and the Wilderness Experience

The Christian and the Wilderness Experience

A lot of pastors, myself included, teach on the truth of how God intervenes in our circumstances. However, if we are not careful we fail to teach the proper response to those times when life goes wrong and seems like a never ending wilderness. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that […]

Now Faith Is…

Now Faith Is…

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (NKJV) We as humans love to live by our senses. We judge our world by what we can see, hear, taste, feel and smell. This is why we struggle so much with true faith. Many claim God does not exist because he […]

Hope for the Future

A few weeks ago it was Family Sunday at Life Church in Conyers Georgia. Instead of sending the kids off to Children’s Church they staid in the main sanctuary for the entire service and the kids participated in serving and reading scriptures etc. The shoes in the picture belong to a young man about 14.

You Really Do Need Negative People in Your Life

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves […]

An Unexpected Blessing and Psalm 91

The one who lives under the protection of the Most High dwells in the shadow of the Almighty. – Psalm 91:1 CSB A few weeks ago I spent a Saturday morning with a couple friends (Marquis and Rob) doing a photo walk around the King Center and Auburn Avenue in downtown Atlanta. Since I have […]
