Lessons from Ananias and Saphira

Have you read the story in the Bible about the couple that was struck down dead for lying to the Holy Spirit? I want to write this post as a follow up to my previous post, All In. There is a story in the Bible of a husband and wife who claimed to be “allContinue reading “Lessons from Ananias and Saphira”

All In

I’ve spent my whole life chasing people that I’m never quite good enough for. This is going to be a cringe post but I don’t really care. I don’t think I should care anymore because all the time, care, and effort that goes into trying to be enough for people that are too good forContinue reading “All In”

My Favorite “Let’s Go Brandon” Song

There have been several “Let’s Go Brandon” songs recently, as we are all most likely aware of. The top songs bring God into their music, which is wonderful and encouraging–on the surface. However, there is also some recent mud slinging going on between the top Let’s Go Brandon artists, and this is not Christ-like, folks.Continue reading “My Favorite “Let’s Go Brandon” Song”

Like a Vapor

I felt my mortality in an interesting way yesterday. I have been visiting family that I have not seen in several years and yesterday I visited a lot of land that one of my childhood homes used to sit on. I spent about 10 years there.

If you have a Christian blog or some other form of educational/exhorting/edifying public ministry, then you probably have something to share. That’s good. I have things to share too. I was just thinking about the way weContinue reading “Fellow Students Instead of Superiors”

This was a co-worker of mine.Continue reading “What if She Had Taken the Time to Share Jesus With Me?”

Are you Concerned About “Overcoming?” You Aren’t Alone.

“I still struggle with fear that I will be cast out on the day of judgment. The promise to those who overcome and keep his works comforts me though it is that same promise that scares me. Am I keeping his works? Am I overcoming? Is my faith and struggle enough for Jesus when IContinue reading “Are you Concerned About “Overcoming?” You Aren’t Alone.”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Was a Lukewarm Laodicean Too

There is none like Jesus. He is worthy of our full devotion, yet we often take Him for granted. I know I did. Sometimes I think about the years I wasted and I regret it. Sometimes I think about choices I made that hinder my ability to serve Him even now as I’d like to.Continue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Was a Lukewarm Laodicean Too”
