Growing vs. Going

“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking... Read more >>

Encouraging Our Pastors

“For I want very much to see you, so I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you, that is, to be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.” Romans 1:11-12 HCSB When I read these verses, I can hear the Apostle Paul’s heartbeat for the ministry of the Kingdom of God. He recognizes the calling on his life to impart spiritual wisdom to fellow believers, the power of being in the presence of brothers and sisters in the faith, and the necessity of mutual encouragement. If Paul, the great evangelist and church planter, needed... Read more >>

Called To Coach And Pray

“Therefore, since we also have such a great cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let’s rid ourselves of every obstacle and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let’s run with endurance the race that is set before us.” Hebrews 12:1 NASB This biblical reference to athletic competitions is a rare moment where the ancient culture of the Apostle Paul’s day collides with our modern lifestyle – sporting events are still a pillar of the culture and provide great opportunities to leverage common understanding of sports to apply spiritual lessons.

Covering Campuses In Prayer

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.

So if you, despite being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your... Read more >>
