Guarding Your Heart

Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life. Proverbs 4.23 This past Sunday, we learned about the secrets of influencing your culture for the glory of God from Daniel. He truly thrived in Babylon and we can as well. If you were to peel pack the layers of Daniel's life and get to the core of who he is I believe you would find a young man ...

Do Not Forsake

Let us not forsake our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. Hebrews 10.25 This past week, I had a sister in the Lord say something that has caused a phrase she said to come back to my memory often. She had asked about a brother in the Lord and I had shared that he had fallen out ...

Change and The Means of Grace

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Galatians 6.7-8 As we talked about Sunday, you can change. This is the hope of the gospel. Maybe you have struggled to change former hab...

Deeper Wonder

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made through Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was light of menAnd the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1.1-4, 14 The...

Disciple Your Children With Shaving Cream

As mentioned Sunday, our children receive take home material each week from their classes. This material is great to use for your family devotionals during the week, for times in the car or for dinner time. This week you could really have fun with the lesson your child learned about how God saved the Israelites from Egypt by using shaving cream. My kiddos got the bigges...

Go

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Matthew 28.19-20 Earlier this week, Jee-Young (Pastor of Nahnum Church) and I were reflecting on this passage together. What did the word ...

Be Still and Know God

Psalm 46 has been a great refuge for our family the last few weeks. My wife broke both her feet and had surgery Thursday on the right foot. The left foot will be operated on in about three or four weeks. The family and I are so thankful to everyone for your prayers, the meals, help with the kiddos and more. We are truly blessed by your abundant generosity. Psalm 46 is a...

The Amenity-Less Church

Do you like amenities? I do. I like going to a hotel and having a place to workout (not that I always use it), a pool for the kiddos and breakfast. I like the amenities in my neighborhood as well. But what about amenities as part of the church environment and experience? Amenities are great features that provide comfort and convenience with the goal of giving a delightful...

Servant to All

For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus' sake. 2 Corinthians 4.5 You and I are called to make disciples in a culture that is perishing due to the blinding of their minds by the enemy. We are called to reach those that are unbelieving with the light of the gospel even though now they might not see it. There wil...
