  •   Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. – I Corinthians 12:27 First, I want to clear something up from the last post that I think I muddied a bit. No, the church is not defined by a building. The church is the body of Christ […]

    What defines church? – Part 1

    And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. – Hebrews 10:24-25 Those of us who believe in Christ typically take part in […]

    Let’s not put words in God’s mouth

    First, watch this. David Brody looks like a hostage in this video. It’s almost indistinguishable from the Bad Lip Reading of Michelle Bachman from a couple years ago. Now, a couple things. The people who someone surrounds himself with have nothing to do with the character of the individual himself. I can surround myself with Godliest, most […]

    What is your thing?

      In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:4-6 Where […]

  • I’ve been reading Tim Keller’s book about prayer which is titled, oddly enough, Prayer. It’s a fascinating book and one that has really made me consider my approach to prayer and whether or not I take it seriously or not. Keller lays out what some of the church fathers (Luther, Augustine, and Calvin) wrote about prayer, […]

    Do we see the stars?

    He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. – Psalm 147:4 I believe we often have a hard time when we hear verses about the stars and the innumerability of them. I know that where I live it can be hard to make out more than a few stars in the […]

    The myth of motion

    Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord! Psalm 27:14 There are some days that I think it would be easier to simply be busy. To have so much to do and so many deadlines to meet that you have to trim the […]

  • A few weeks ago, our pastor brought up the idea that the church is not a place where people go when they have it all together but should be a place where the broken go to find healing. This is something that I think those around us have forgotten because we don’t show it. We […]

    We know who calls us

    3 As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. 4 He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him,“Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?” – Acts 9:3-4 I think most of the time when we hear the story of Paul’s conversion, we tend to think that […]
