SHORT DEVOTIONALS TO HELP YOU LIVE LIFE STRONG

BORROWED INTIMACY

I was talking with some friends recently about the crisis of identity the modern church finds herself in.  Jesus clearly talked about it when he told the parable of the ten virgins in Matthew 25.  He said that the Kingdom of Heaven is like ten virgins who are bridesmaids taking...

Robin the Hood

When I was a kid, I thought Robin Hood was awesome. Imagine a hero out there robbing from all those bad, rich people, and giving to all those saintly poor people.  After all, my family and I were part of the ‘poor people’ group.  Any movies I saw with him he was always...

JAMES BOND IS DEAD

One of the things that audiences have been able to count on for decades is that no matter what kind of trouble James Bond gets in, he always escapes. 007 never dies.  Well, something happened in real life that’s put a hole in that picture. 

Probably one of the greatest actors...

The Price of God’s Will

It’s a go-to request for many Christians when you ask what they’d like prayer for in their life. “I’m just believing for God’s will in my life”, they say.  The thing I’ve found incredible and odd is how few of these people actually know what...

THE KINGDOM WAY

EXCLUSIVITY

Imagine buying a car, but it’s shared property with the whole town.  It would be pretty hard to count on a ride in the morning when it was time for work.  Now the payments are exclusively yours, but the use of it, well it’s only fair that you share, right?  Imagine that...

DIVISIONS MUST COME

 

Unity is such a peace, love, and harmony word, as opposed to ‘division’.  Division is one of those objective realities that parents instinctually feel compelled to correct out of their child’s behavior.  And yet strangely, it’s the very tool they use to...

QUIET INVASION

 

It happened on a Sunday morning.  Mom got us three kids ready for church and out the door we went. About two and a half hours later we returned home and began the routine of getting changed out of our church clothes (yes, that was a thing when I was ten years old) and then lunch....

MORE THAN DATA

What makes you, you?  Is it the social number the government assigns you?  Maybe it’s your credit rating and allowance to borrow money?  It’s safe to say that perspective has a great bearing on the answer. 

Universities would say it’s your education.  ...

NO GRACE FOR THAT

One day when I was on the road I met a great man of God. He was a highly effective minister and operated in powerful gifts to the benefit of many people around him.  He had a big thorn in his side though and his countenance would drop terribly when he'd talk about it.  He felt...
