Wanted: Unselfish Christians

It’s been almost a year since our church started meeting publicly. Time has passed quickly. The seasons have cycled. People have as well. In the ebb and flow of every church body people come and people go. Visitors have joined us: some made the choice to stay, and others made the choice to leave. I have decided to not make it my…

Christian Podcasts I Listen To

Here is a list of Christian podcasts that I listen to on a daily or weekly basis. They have been an encouragement and challenge to me, and I hope that they prove to be the same for you. I have provided links to both iTunes and websites if possible. Albert Mohler’s The Briefing: iTunes link  Al Mohler serves as the President of…

Are all churches the same?

From Dr. Charles Wood: No two churches are exactly alike.  No two pastors are exactly alike.  No two communities are identical.  No two situations are the same.  If there is one thing I have learned, it is that what will work in one place will not necessarily work in another; in fact, trying to put some of these things into practice can…

what is Christmas about?

Holidays are the moments marketers dream of to tout the…

why is denying yourself so hard?

Matthew 16:24 (ESV) – 24 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” Why is it so hard to deny oneself? Denying yourself means that you act in a way where you are totally unconcerned about self, where you are actively refusing to acknowledge your own desires, ambitions,…

I don’t want to be a “used-to-be”

How many times have you said, or heard someone else say, “So-and-so used to be. . .” Think of all the endings you have heard to that statement: …on fire for God …in love with his/her spouse …faithful to his/her church …a good friend …devoted to the Word of God …a man/woman of prayer I hope, by God’s grace, that you are…
