April 2010

(Read Gracioulsy Uncertain part 2 here) Recently, I have been trying to figure out what is next for me. I have gone through a lot of changes in the past year or so of my life. Among them was ending a relationship with my girlfriend, whom I was with for four years, starting up a theology/discipleship course,  my family [...]

What Do You Want?

I often find that I seek great things for myself. But this is totally the wrong mind set. In Matthew 6:33 Jesus said "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well". It is clear here that seeking greatness for myself will lead me away from God. Today I [...]

I often find myself trying to measure my "success". Now in some cases this is not a horrible thing, but when it comes to what God has called us to, well, it is just a distraction from God. I find that when I am concerned about the success of the work I am called to, I begin to worship [...]

The Fruit of the Spirit

Probably the biggest desire in my life is to be more like Jesus. I know I don't live like it every day, and I promise you I'm far from it, but whenever I sit down and think about what I would like to accomplish in my life, the only truly fulfilling thing that I see is [...]

We Are Free Here, NOW!

Have you ever felt like you just needed to overcome that one sin in your life to be free or usable to God? I know I feel that way often. Like I can be usable to God when I no longer feel greed, or pride, etc...so, I often find myself waiting for that to happen. But am [...]

Throughout my whole life there have always been those "BIG" temptations that I've seen on the horizon...but to be honest, avoiding these hasn't ever been too difficult. It has always been the least likely temptations that I have fallen to. I believe this is the case because the "BIG" temptations are so obvious, and easy-ish to prepare for. But the [...]

I often find that when I'm feeling most defeated, or useless, it is the result of my priorities being misplaced. It's when I place my priorities above God's. In the book of Haggai, the Jews are not prospering due to their misplacement of priorities. Instead of placing God's will first, which was to rebuild the temple, they were [...]

In my experience, the biggest obstacle in the way of the gospel is this thing now called "religion". But what we need is not religion, but a relationship. True religion is seen in Micah 6:8: "He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and [...]

The Third Day

The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again. -Luke 24:7 The third day. This day is much more than candy, presents, eggs and the easter bunny. This third day is the day that solidifies the cross. Because of this day, we can [...]

The Cross | Amazing Love

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. -Hebrews 12:2 Reflecting on today, I'm filled with awe, wonder, tears of joy and amazement, hope, [...]
