Growing in Faith

God’s shelter for your storm

Several years ago, my son Jordan walked in the door with a scruffy looking dog in his arms. Truly, that poor thing was in rough shape. Jordan watched as one car after another whizzed around this poor, lost pup, barely missing him but certainly scaring him into chaos and confusion. So Jordan pulled his car off to the side of the road, put…

Why waiting on God is essential to faith

The other morning, while reading the 32nd chapter of Exodus, I relearned an important lesson. Moses was up on the mountain having a face to face encounter with God. This Israelites hadn’t heard from him in a while and they got bored waiting for him. Let’s look in at their response: When the people saw how long it was taking…

Seoul Food

Several years ago, I read about a church congregation in Seoul,  South Korea that at that time had over one million members.  The article I read said that the pastor that founded the church was asked what was the secret to the incredible numerical growth that they’d experienced. He responded by touting a simple yet profound…

Jesus and electric chairs

Imagine walking into your church, and instead of seeing the Crucifixion Cross prominently displayed, your eyes are drawn to an electric chair near the altar. Picture the cover of your Bible, with The Cross replaced by “The Chair.” The more you glance around, the more you notice the eponymous symbol for modern execution…

Why do bad things happen to good people?

As I took in the news from Boston last night I was reminded of an event in the Bible.  There was this guy named Job.  I know it’s an unusual name, but aside from the name Job was a great guy, a good man, he had a good family, and he did quite well financially.  Yet in one day his family was attacked, he lost many of his employees and possessions.…

My opposite way

Change…Why don’t we want to change? Change is hard. Do we not think that we are capable? Do you trust God enough to bring great results from change? Or is it because we are afraid of change itself? Those are some hard hitting questions that I have cross-examined myself with and the answers I came up with, before God, were…

Wading through worry

How many days have you woke up with worry? Too many days to count? I love the charge that Jesus gives in Matthew 6 about the worry waters of life. Ever notice how He gives us instructions about what to do about worry? Side note: when there is a “Therefore” in God’s word, it’s a red flag to see what it’s there…

One Good Friday

The ladies hurried in and started removing items one by one. The lights were dim in the room that brought a quiet solitude. Everyone was reverently sitting and watching. One by one the candles disappeared, the flowers were next, then the cross that was centered on the veiled stone altar. In only a few minutes, nothing was left but the…

Some reasons to get out of bed today

If you are like me you are running on empty most days, and your to-do list just keeps growing and growing.  Most days are overwhelming with a cumulative list of tasks. Ever get to the point of thinking twice about getting out of bed?  The doorway to depression is often calling your name, beckoning your heart to just succumb to the…

What’s the deal with purity?

Purity.  Isn’t that just for single people or those who have claimed a life of celibacy? Usually when you hear that word it’s used in the same sentence as a youth minister’s Wednesday night lesson.  It certainly is a battlefield that seems to have few victories in the lives of teens and singles.  …
