Victory.  Oh how we like it.  Celebration.  More of the same.  Success.  A feel-good moment. Who doesn’t appreciate the victory and celebration of success.  (V-C-S) Christianity is not a new brand of V-C-S lifestyle.  Neither is it simply a notch above worldly V-C-S.  No. Christianity gives its inhabitants abundance of life and grace when there […]

The Calling Challenges For Churches

The church is poised on the edge of its seat with powerful anticipation of what’s next. Or.. .is it? I think not. Rather, churches in general do not function with a drive to reach the wonderful populace which knows little about God and His elaborate transformation system.  No, we are snagged on the splinters of […]

How Many gods Can A Church Have? 

While we are vigorously striving for better ministry with greater outreach, we must guard against making either of these a personal god.  One of the things good church leadership tries to do is engage new members as quickly as possible. Connection is serious.  It is important. But, connection cannot become god. Worship style cannot become […]

The Parable Of The Lost Sheep 

The parables of the Lost Sheep, Lost Coin, and the Prodigal Son run in sync as a response by Jesus to the grumbling Pharisees.  They were griping about him favoring sinners and even eating with them.  As one looks upon these three deep truths, it should have significant impact when it is realized these parables […]

The Power To Decide

It seems crystal clear, both from the Word and from experience, that the true contest of the heart is whether we will choose to engage in the realm of faith according to the walk of the Pharisees or of Jesus. One runs narrow-closed while the other runs wide-open. Shall we own a religion which leads […]

Then Your Face Will Shurely Show It!

Is there someone(s) running the church other than Jesus? Yes.  This has gone on almost from day one of the church being birthed in Acts 2.  The battle began even earlier in the New Testament.  Look at Jesus.  See him strive to give hope to the beaten and the neglected.  And what did it get […]

Being Critical of Churches is No Excuse to Avoid Them 

I surely understand any who just can’t take churches and church people.  We are simply weird, even mean, in places.  The one thing we seem most consistent in is probably our inconsistency.  Therefore, due to the latter, the multitude feels they deserve a pass. Not so. Have you ever heard of car wrecks?  Any resulting […]

Faith Isn’t Spelled B-L-A-C-K-A-N-D-W-H-I-T-E 

Faith isn’t for sissies.  It is that deep inner conviction that things we cannot see are actually in existence.  Faith is assurance.  Assurance would be the force of our need to know for sure when there seems to be nothing physical nor rational to verify. Humanity is challenged at our deepest senses over this matter […]

River Walk 

“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being shall flow rivers of living water’ (John 7:38).”  Jesus is referencing the flow of the Holy Spirit coming forth from within believers.  That would include us. We are to be a people who are overflowing our banks in life.  We are flooding […]

Do-Gooders Don’t Do Good Enough 

Any who are devoted to life in Jesus must become alert to the subtle mistake of becoming full of self-righteousness.  Nothing offends the nostrils of community like odor of a church-ee or church-ette parading how good we are at being good. This has been one of my most regretful mistakes.  Learning about God and His […]
