We often hear people talk about a “personal relationship with Jesus,” but what does that mean? Can we really have that type of relationship with Him and how would it look if we talked to God about what he wants for us, not what we want from him?
July 23, 2023 // [Part 1 of 2]

“Have” is never satisfying. Feeding our appetites for stuff only increases those appetites. Believe it or not, it’s possible to be content whatever your circumstances. You just have to let your heavenly Father lead the way.
May 21, 2023 // [Part 2 of 3]
We don’t always get what we want, regardless of planning, effort, or our own merit. The greener grass is possible, but you can’t get there on your own. Shift your focus to the One who loves you and gave himself up for you.
April 30, 2023 // [Part 3 of 3]
Most people believe in heaven, and most people believe they'll end up there. Can we really know? People came before commandments. With God, relationships always precede rules.

Most people believe in heaven, and most people believe they'll end up there. Can we really know? Jesus offered the most just system possible in an unjust world.
April 16, 2023 // [Part 1 of 3]
Most people believe in heaven, and most people believe they'll end up there. Can we really know? The belief that “Good people go to heaven” sounds nice on the surface. But it doesn’t make sense.
April 2, 2023 // [Part 6 of 6]

Admirers of Jesus didn’t shape civilization. The doers did.
February 19, 2023 // [Part 2 of 2]
The church is not here to win. It's here for something different. Disagreement is unavoidable, but division is a choice. We can disagree politically and love unconditionally.
February 12, 2023 // [Part 1 of 2]
The reaction of many evangelicals to political and cultural shifts in recent years revealed what they valued most—winning. But the church is not here to win. It's here for something different. When it comes to potentially polarizing topics, our posture, tone, and approach will tell others all they need to know about what’s most important to us.

November 20, 2022 // [Part 3 of 4]
When there’s bad blood in a relationship, the easiest thing to do is to let resentment and bitterness grow without addressing the issue. But Jesus calls his followers to a higher standard - we should go and have a conversation with him or her. But why should you go, when should you go, and how should you go?
November 13, 2022 // [Part 2 of 4]
What do you do when you have bad blood with someone? It costs you peace and complicates your other relationships. The good news is that you can have peace ABOUT the relationship even without peace IN the relationship.
October 2, 2022 // [Part 6 of 6]

March 27, 2022
Sometimes it seems God drops someone into our lives at just the right time. The defining moments and seasons of our lives usually revolve around those providential relationships.
March 20, 2022
Nothing causes us to depend on God more than pushing through our inadequacies to help other people. When we serve in a ministry we take personally, we experience God's power and faithfulness.
