It’s usually chronological . . . starting with where and how you grew up and the big things that happened to you leading to big changes in you. Then, where you are now, and where you see yourself going from here. It starts with remembering. In his book The Rest…

Years ago, a good friend really handed it to me. He said, “When I see someone running as hard as you run, I wonder who he’s trying to please.” My friend didn’t wonder, “Is he trying to please someone?” He knew that answer. The question was who? Most of us start out trying to please…

My church just had its annual Man Night. Quite a production with campfires, bacon snacks, brownies and milk, film clips . . . you know, real guy stuff. At the end of the main talk, 6 truths about identity were put up on the screen along with this question, “Which of these do you struggle…

Who am I? Identity was Dictionary.com’s 2015 Word of the Year. Millions are ordering DNA profiles on themselves. What’s my race? My nationality of origin? Why do we care so much about identity?

Earlier this week . . . September 19th . . . was the anniversary of the night I walked out in the backyard of my house and cried out to God for the first time in my life. Oh, I’d been a “Christian” since 5th grade. I’d been to church at least a thousand times. Baptized. Taught…

I think about Mary (Jesus’ mother) all the time. I picture her standing there, watching people bowing down and worshipping her baby. From kings to shepherds, they brought gifts and stared at her newborn.

“The cornerstone (or foundation stone) concept is derived from the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation, important since all other stones will be set in reference to this stone, thus determining the position of the entire structure.” (Wikipedia) If the cornerstone collapses, everything that rides on top of it comes crashing down.

“You’re dead to me.” If you think Kevin O’Leary from Shark Tank came up with this concept, think again. The apostle Paul said it in Romans 6:11-13 . . . “Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal…

Part of this sounds like John Eldredge . . . part like Andy Stanley, and part of it definitely came from me . . . I’m not sure. But read it and see if it resonates with you. Step 1 – Beloved son – The childhood innocence most of us felt until (maybe) 5th grade?…
