“Therefore, brothers, since we have boldness to enter the sanctuary through the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way He has opened for us through the curtain (that is, His flesh), and since we have a great high priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, our hearts sprinkled clean ...

Let’s Talk About Feelings

Feelings

How easy is it to coast through a day and really “feel” very little?  We are surrounded by distractions.  Events and to-do lists clutter our normal life, such as school, work, sports, social activities, but not only that.  We have enticing technology at our fingertips that is capable of filling all of the in-between moments in our hectic schedules.  We ...

I’m With What’s His Name

Identity is sometimes associated with what a person does, but it actually is more accurately a function of whom we find ourselves with most often. In other words, who we become is more likely to be a product of the relationships we admire than the religion we acknowledge. A.W. Tozer expresses this similarly when he says, “It is a law ...

Abraham: Faith leads to Obedience

Getting a fearful 3-year-old to jump into a swimming pool can sometimes be a challenge. While some kids don’t think twice and consider the water their natural environment, others become paralyzed at the water’s edge. Even with the outstretched arms of a loving parent within reach, encouraging, begging, demanding, it can be so incredibly difficult for them to leave the ... Read More »

“You are not going to believe it!”

impact_empty_tomb_wide

You are not going to believe it! Those are some of my favorite opening words to any story. When you hear those words, you know that what follows is going to be unexpected…and hopefully really good! I wonder if, on that first Easter Sunday, the women who told the disciples about the morning’s events started their account by blurting out, ... Read More »

The Easter Lamb

In the early days of Jesus’ ministry, when John the Baptist saw Jesus, he would shout, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” (John 1:29,36). During this time, John also preached that Jesus was greater than him (3:30) and was the one to be followed (1:30), and so many did. Now if you know anything about lambs, you know that they aren’t ...

Are you a “Foolish Galatian”?

Cycles

Many of you are familiar with the story of Moses and the 10 Commandments and the overall idea that throughout the Old Testament, before Jesus Christ came, there were certain rules and laws God put into place for His people. These laws were good. They were part of God’s covenant with His people, guaranteeing them that should they obey His ... Read More »

Are you being robbed?

My 4 year-old son was robbed last week. It happened so quickly! We were sitting at the dinner table and my wife was handing out bowls of ice cream. He was so happy to receive his bowl first, so excited about his bowl of delicious ice cream. Then it happened, he was robbed right in front of us. His brother ... Read More »

One Who Hears and Obeys

As the snow finally disappears from the ground here at camp and the ice on the lake covers less and less surface, it only seems right that Easter is almost upon us. Sobering remembrance of a cross that serves as the scene for a sacrifice unlike any other, followed by the glorious celebration of resurrection that destroyed death and triumphed ... Read More »
