HOLY WEEK: FRIDAY


03.04.2015

Good Friday. What a name.

When you and I wake up in the morning on Good Friday, we should remember that Jesus has been going through a series of rigged and brutal trials that will lead to His crucifixion later in this day, 2000 years ago.  He will be accused, beaten, spat upon, ridiculed and insulted – all before being stripped naked and scourged to within an inch of His physical life.

HOLY WEEK: THURSDAY


02.04.2015

Do you know what was happening on what many call “Maundy Thursday”?  In the life of Jesus, the cross and tomb are now nearer than ever.

But this is no meaningless death – and no permanent tomb.  But first, He prepares His disciples and then prepares Himself for the sacrifice of “the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.”

HOLY WEEK: WEDNESDAY


01.04.2015

Wednesday of Holy Week is often called the “Silent Day.”  Two days before His crucifixion…the clock is ticking toward the tomb…and we find nearly nothing from Scripture about the activities of Jesus.  However, if we look at what has already transpired, and what is about to happen, we can deduce that some critical things are happening.

HOLY WEEK: MONDAY


30.03.2015

Have you ever contemplated the unfolding of the events of Holy Week?  What was Jesus doing in days leading up to the Cross?  What was happening around Him that impacted the incredible significance of this event of the crucifixion?

See the video here:  Monday of Holy Week

Jesus seemed concerned about three things on Monday: …more

The Church United: What Does It Look Like?


26.12.2014

The church must UNITE in the focus of mission and the Gospel.  This is an incredible priority of Jesus Himself (the Head of the Church) in His prayer found in John 17.  I can’t get this prayer out of my mind – so I’m praying it with Him. And I’m praying more boldly and more loudly for this than ever before. And you should be, as well.

So You Can Share Your Faith – Now what?


18.12.2014

I’ ve ENJOYED working in 2014 to help our church learn to share their faith personally and practically.  I LOVE that more than 500 people have come to gain a new confidence and boldness in this area, and I’m praying for about 1000 more to come through “Can We Talk?” in 2015 in our church alone.

Trust God for Provision – Freaky and Faithful Together


05.12.2014

This is an anonymous guest blog from a friend who has seen God provide in a great way for a mission trip.  He’s Faithful!

“I want to tell people what a great God we serve and how when He says He is going to provide He does. I only need $400 left to earn for my trip. The gifts of three people got me there. God gives bigger than we can ask or imagine.

It Takes TIME to be a Better Man


29.10.2014

“Better men” don’t just happen.  We’re certainly not BORN better.  No, the depravity of mankind is pretty deeply etched on the heart of every man.

Becoming a better man is process that finds its power in a transforming relationship with Jesus Christ, and its application in where we spend our time.   Paul would say it like this, “Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time, for the days are evil.”
