Some mostly coherent ramblings

Why Didn’t I Worship?

Many times in my career, I’ve heard people use some key phrases:

“I can’t worship like this.”
“I didn’t get anything out of worship today.”
“I feel like worship was dead today.”

What causes people to say these things? Continue reading

Crazy Questions Kids Ask: Part 1

This post totally could have been titled “Crazy Questions Kids Ask and What Happens When Adults Ask Them Too,” but I figured that would probably be too long.

Sometimes, I get some interesting questions from kids. They tend to sound completely off-the-wall. They sound like something we all should know. However, adults sometimes behave in such a way that it seems like they’re asking that question too. So, let’s take a look at the last question I got: Continue reading

Stop Reading the Bible

Really. Stop reading your Bible. Immediately. Ok, fine. You caught me. I just wanted a shocking title that would help my page get more views. I’m generally an honest guy. The title here should have been “Stop JUST reading your Bible.” You see, some of us fallen into a trap in reading Scripture. It’s one that has to be corrected, or your spiritual life never progresses. Continue reading

Big Faith and Little Faith

What does “big faith” look like? What does “small faith” look like? The Bible is quite clear on both. We are constantly given examples of people with big faith. The Israelites had no idea that God was going to part the Red Sea. They were standing with an ocean in front and an army behind. Basically, it was a “how are we going to die” situation. They didn’t have big faith. Continue reading

Preparing for Worship

First, keep in mind that worship is not just music. Corporate worship is a gathering of people to give glory to God. Private worship is giving glory to God by yourself. God does not take His worship lightly. Worship is your final fulfillment in God, the end-all of humanity, and Continue reading

My Must-Read Books of 2014

I read a lot of books. I read a lot of them in 2014. They weren’t necessarily published in 2014, I just finally got around to them. If I had to pick five of them that were absolute must-reads, these would be the ones. Continue reading

Things You Should Always Be Praying

Some of the most God-seeking Christians I know have dynamic prayer lives. Even Jesus showed us the true value of prayer. We often struggle with finding time to pray, how to pray, and making it meaningful, but I’d like to address something different. Continue reading

Living Among Sinners

The world is full of sinners. The church (and this church) is full of sinners. This office is full of sinners, and I’m the only one in it! The Bible is full of sinners. It’s important that we realize that there is sin everywhere. This seems obvious, but Continue reading

Sacrificing Yourself

According to Romans 12:1, we should be sacrificing ourselves for the glory of God. What does that look like? Since our core value is “Sacrificial Service,” I want to talk about how we can give sacrificially to help our worship service. Any of these that you can do will help our worship service be more focused on God, and allow the Holy Spirit more room to work in the lives of both believers and non-believers. Continue reading

Creating a Strong Family

At FBC, we have a core value for creating strong families that states:

“We value strong Christian families by equipping husbands and wives to love and respect each other, parents to nurture their children, children to respect and obey their parents, and where the single, divorced, and widowed find love and joy in the family of Christ.”

So how do we go about creating strong families? Obviously, there are far too many to list, but I’m going to pick on a few that I think are exceptionally important. Continue reading
