People Are More Committed to Their Own Ideas Than to Yours

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 29, 2018

If you want to get someone behind an idea, help them come to it themselves. They never resist their own ideas but they’ll almost always resist yours. I believe this is why God came up with the idea of placing the Holy Spirit inside us when we accept His offer of forgiveness, redemption, and sonship….

The Holy Spirit (Part 2)

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 23, 2018

On Monday, I explained how I’ve experienced the Holy Spirit. I used the analogy of the cellular network and how becoming a Christian activates the SIM card in our spirits, enabling God the Father to speak and listen to His children through the cellular network of the Holy Spirit. So if the Holy Spirit is…

The Holy Spirit (Part 1)

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 20, 2018

Have we forgotten about the third person of the Godhead? Seems like it sometimes. Why? Because we can’t explain Him easily. Jesus? He is God’s son. ‘God in a bod.’ Not a simple paradigm but understandable. God? He’s the Father. Imagine the perfect father and you’re there. Any detailed questions go into the categories of…

Knowing All You’re Supposed To

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 13, 2018

I don’t know about you, but every now and then, I get hung up on something and struggle to get by it. Sometimes, it’s a theological question, like if God is all good where did evil come from? I spent three months in a funk brought on by that question. When my wife’s sister died…

“God Told Me”

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 16, 2018

There’s a little twinge in my spirit when I hear the words “God told me” come out of someone’s mouth (including my own). Did He? Does He? How do you know it was God? What’s our motive for qualifying what we’re about to say with “God told me.” Are we trying to sound ‘super-spiritual’? Do…

Guilt, Conviction, and Freedom

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 9, 2018

After watching 10 episodes of The Staircase on Netflix, my wife and I feel like lawyers. Or jurors. We’ve been schooled in the difference between “guilty” and “not guilty” and a lot of other legal stuff. Did you realize our legal system never says someone is innocent . . . just that there’s enough evidence…

When You Lose Your Belief

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 31, 2018

There’s a finite amount of belief in a person. You can’t create more belief. You can move your belief around, believe more of one thing and less of another, but each human has a unique capacity for belief. Here are a couple of controversial examples. Colin Kaepernick lost his belief in standing for the national…

Three Phases of the Christian Life

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 21, 2018

I see three phases in the lives of Christians. The first begins when someone “gets serious about their faith” or “comes to Christ” or “becomes genuinely aware” of God in their hearts” or “gets saved” or “surrenders to Jesus.” Whatever words we pick, we’re talking someone’s initial authentic personal engagement with the Lord. “I’ve been…

A Faith of Your Own

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 16, 2018

I’ve had a burr in my saddle for a while. I feel it every time a church service ends with an altar call . . . when folks are asked to become Christians. The words flow with passion . . . “Give your life to Jesus.” “Get saved today.” “Surrender to Christ.” What do these…

P.S.D. Husbands

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 5, 2018

Brad Cooper is a pastor at NewSpring Church and a graduate of my most recent Radical Mentoring group. A couple of weeks ago, he delivered an awesome sermon on marriage, speaking specifically to husbands about the command found in Ephesians 5:25, “Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for…
