When Being a Servant Becomes Destructive

When Being a Servant Becomes Destructive

The greatest among you will be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. – Matthew 23:11-12 (CSB) At times it seems that God’s Kingdom operates backwards from our human logic. In order to be great we are called to serve. The Bible even calls us to lay […]

When Everyone is a Heretic

Just over a week ago we had the great John MacArthur – Beth Moore kerfuffle. The complementarians and the egalitarians lined up against one another and waged a great war on social media. Many mocked and made jokes of the other. A week later nobody changed their point of view but the church was further […]

Social Media: The Good – The Bad -The Ugly

Our broken human nature tends to be drawn to the sensational and the tragic. From the earliest days when news was simply spread by word of mouth it tended to deal with politics, crime and the gossip of the rich and famous. Fast forward several hundred years and now thanks to the internet, news is […]

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 […]
