Confession--Good for Your Soul

 

Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide them.

I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.”…

Understanding Why

The older I get the less I understand about some things. I don’t understand why good people elect bad politicians. I don’t understand why faithful church members have violent disagreements. I don’t understand why people who love each other make decisions that cause their children to suffer. I don’t understand why rich people spend their money foolishly, even illegally. I don’t understand why God shows public favor on some of His called-out ones and allow others to serve in relative…

Heaven, Earth, and Holding Patterns

As a recent flight was caught in a “holding pattern” the analogy was too obvious for me. Perhaps I’ve been too far to many “celebrations of life” lately. French Philosopher, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said, “we are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” Allow me to paraphrase: we are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings temporarily caught in a human holding pattern, awaiting arrival in heaven. In…

The King's Magnificence

 

Jesus' appearance changed so that his face shone like the sun, and his clothing became dazzling white. 

When they looked, they saw only Jesus with them.

Always Be Creative

When we are introduced to God in Genesis, God is creating something awesome and beautiful with a creative potential of its own.

When we gather people to worship God's attributes or wonder about God's word, to work with God on mission, we should always be creative.

Hear from different voices and envision…

Observations on Three Mega-Firings

Observations on Three Mega-Firings

 

For me, this past year has been the best of times and the worst of times.

The Pleasure of God's Company

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.

Psalm 37:4 NLT

 

Delight in the wonder of our relationship, and be sure of focus. Enchantment with anything else can be disillusioning, but I never fail.  Avoid false gods of the heart--never let…

Kindness

Don’t underestimate kindness

There are many ways in which God leads a person to repent and turn from sin that breaks his law and his heart, building and storing up God’s wrath.  Sin is toxic to our spiritual health, so much so that God hates it. But ironically, according to Romans 2:4, he often uses combinations of revealing his goodness, patient tolerance (by withholding wrath), overflowing generosity, and merciful kindness, to melt our hard heart and lead us along the path…

Marked by the High Calling

My local newspaper recently gained national attention with an investigative report on sexual abuse by ministers in “Independent Fundamentalist Baptist” churches.

 

The study revealed 412 documented allegations of sexual misconduct in 187 churches, based in 40 states and Canada. Let me quickly add that while I am “independent,” and some would say, a bit “fundamental,” and a…
