Wilderness Curriculum

Well, we have collectively flipped our calendars from March to April. I for one, was happy to toss old March into the trash can and be moving on to a new month, one that traditionally brings hope, renewal and happy memories. As I stared at a big, blank April, something annoying and unwanted popped into… Continue reading Wilderness Curriculum

Spring Will Come

“Now is a time to find Jesus, hope, cultivate faith, groan for redemption, wait, and carry light and color into dark. Because there will be a time when you will no longer be standing at the window, searching, feet on the heater grate, heart groaning out of the weight of winter. You will be outside,… Continue reading Spring Will Come

Inward or Upward?

"The desire for man to feel right in the world. This is the goal that so many are working toward, and why so many are discarding the relationships and careers and obligations that they see as holding them back, as they press on, trying to become the best version of themselves that they can be,… Continue reading Inward or Upward?

Offended! Men, Women, and Hating on the Truth

"In every moral question we are bound to be on Christ's side. In every religious question we are not on the side of predominant thought, nor on the side of fashionable views... but on the side of Christ."

Rotten, Woke Fruit

I'm reading a lot lately about fruit... good fruit vs. bad fruit and how to discern the difference. It's rather straightforward in our Bibles, or at least I thought it was. The book of Luke tells us that good trees bear good fruit, and bad trees bear bad fruit (6:43). So how in the world… Continue reading Rotten, Woke Fruit

To whom much is given, much will be required.John Piper So I see a few people announcing that they are joining in… Continue reading The Truth You Know

Life Verses and Digging Deep

When we faithfully read the word, not dabbling about but really reading it all, it will change us. We’ll be changed in the laws, and in the prophets. We’ll be changed in the mercies, and in the judgments. We’ll be changed by the passages that don’t sit right with us at first, and by those… Continue reading Life Verses and Digging Deep

The Heat Is On

There comes a time in every believers faith journey when the rubber has to meet the road. Eventually, we are going to have to walk our talk. I'll be the first to say that I don't think piling on personal hot-takes when others struggle is very helpful. As the cultural temperature gets turned up, too… Continue reading The Heat Is On

Enter Your Rest

"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate. Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher… Continue reading Enter Your Rest

Kissing Jesus Goodbye

So a little update post on my last entry regarding the shake-up around author and former pastor Joshua Harris' retreat away from the teachings that skyrocketed him to fame in Christian evangelical circles. To recap, he wrote a catchy book calling for a more serious approach to Christian dating, one that would ease the pain… Continue reading Kissing Jesus Goodbye
