Be one. Build many.


Great Expectations?

“I personally love worshiping with believers from other cultures, especially in their home countries. I can’t help but look around the room and think, this is it! This is a little glimpse of what it’s going to be like in Heaven. Those are some of the most treasured worship memories of my life. Yet I can’t help but wonder why isn’t that my usual experience back here in North America?”

On Your Hands and Knees

We husbands like the idea of our wives coming to us on their hands and knees. We are quick to memorize Ephesians 5:22, “Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Lord.” And yes, the Bible does teach the leadership of the husband.

Just Say No!

Demands for our time seem to clamor endlessly. When was the last time you had a peaceful moment when you were not thinking about that next thing to do? Usually the decision to commit to too many things is because we can’t seem to say “no.” How do you say “no” in these busy times? Is “no” being selfish, or is “yes” being selfish when you do not have the time to do well the thing to which you said “yes?”

The Hallmark of a Healthy Christian Leader

Make no mistake, this mournful heart condition that He forms in us, of longing for the things of Christ to be seen and established and over all, is indeed blessed: not a selfish cocktail of leadership insecurity and lime-light grabbing tendency; not a bunch of immature responses of the flesh to the people we’re called to love and the world we’re called to as Priests; but a deep work of the Spirit of God in our lives to hate sin, kill sin and lead towards His salvation.
