Greater Than Christ

What is greater than Christ for you? Remember in math, when they used to give you those problems? “X>Y when Y=…” Remember? Let’s solve for a different equation. X>Christ. Solve for X. You may say nothing. You may claim that nothing in your life is greater than Christ. You may be right, but you may also, even unknowingly, be wrong. Here are some ways to tell what is greater than Christ in your life. Continue reading

Deeper Prayer

Too often, our prayer lives look eerily one-note. I’m guilty here. There seems to be the big three in all of our prayers: “Thanks God,” “Bless our food, God,” and “Heal so-and-so, God.” Now none of these, in themselves, are bad things to pray. In fact, they’re all good things to pray. However, we need to be going a whole lot deeper than that. What if we all connected our prayer lives to the mission of our church? What if we prayed like Christ? Like Paul? Continue reading

Crazy Questions Kids Ask: Part 2

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.

One night’s question was a big one asked by my 2nd and 3rd graders. “Is the Bible really true? All of it? All of it can’t be true.”

So, obviously we want to immediately say that we believe that the whole Bible is true. But what happens when we act like we don’t? Continue reading

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
