Ask! Seek! Knock!

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find;knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds,and to him who knocks it will be opened.”                                      […]

Cultural Destabilization

A couple Sundays ago I shared from Deuteronomy 3 about the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh. These two-and-a-half tribes inquired of Moses that they might receive the lot of their inheritance on the east side of the Jordan River. Effectively this possession was outside of the Promised Land, with a […]

My Hope…

My hope is built on nothing lessthan Jesus’ blood and righteousness These words may be familiar to you. Especially if you grew up in a more traditional church. They were written by a hymn writer (Edward Mote) in the 19th century, and they’ve been song in churches worldwide, nearly ever since. I find that they […]

Just Thinking » Covid-19

It’s a Sunday afternoon. Most Sunday afternoons I get home from the church, right about this time (it’s 2:15pm), after preaching 3 messages. Today was the third Sunday I didn’t do that, because the message was recorded on Video, and played (and watched) online. This, as they say, is the “new normal” for churches. It […]

To Seek and Save

I saw a bumpersticker recently that said, “Jesus is coming! (And boy is he angry).” Except angry was another word, which I don’t need to post here (but it rhymes with kissed). I was reminded of the sticker, when I read Jesus’ words in Matthew 18, this morning.  “For the Son of Man has come […]

Running With Endurance

Over the holiday I ran in the San Diego Holiday Half Marathon. It was 15 years ago that I ran my last half marathon, and though I’d trained for the few months leading up to the race, it became clear as I ran that I wasn’t 100% prepared for the entirety of the race. Physically, I […]

I Ain’t Afraid No More

In 2004, rapper Kanye West released a hit entitled “Jesus Walks.” When it came out, I would loop it frequently when I’d go on a long run, even though the lyrics (at the time) weren’t the best. In 2004, West was anything but a Christian role model, and the song far from “Christian.” But in […]
