Humility 101

"The world screams "You are enough" and we are desperate to believe it. But being enough is different from being worthy and valuable. We are beautiful people flawed to the core, but deeply worthy of love and of priceless value to our Creator God... every one. Jesus has no favorites. So to say "without You… Continue reading Humility 101


Not A Safe Space

"Christians should be creating safe spaces, not ridiculing them." The headline grabbed my attention.

Then Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great… Continue reading Jesus Math

  "People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline… Continue reading Drifting
