Growing in Faith

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…

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…

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…

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…

Too wise for my own good

Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. – 1 Corinthians 3:18 I came across this this week. It’s one of those “paradoxes of discipleship” we tend to see. I think Jesus loved those (poor to become…

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.  …

What to do before you get angry

I can make a lot of excuses for what happened on Friday evening. I got up at 4:30 am, so I was cranky I had been traveling most of the day I hadn’t had a real meal in 8 hours I had not seen my family for 3 weeks It was a combination of those things and more that led to McDonalds for dinner, and ultimately, a life lesson. I just wanted a grilled…

Don’t fall down the worry slope!

As I have been transitioning and moving from Oklahoma to Minnesota, my wife, Colleen, and our two children, Ezra (10 Months) and Joash (6 Years) are living in Oklahoma so Joash can finish school for the year.  There have been some challenges, as it seems as if the moment I left 3 weeks ago, everything in the house started falling apart. …
