He Hears Your Voice

Recently, I had a conversation with my sons about what it means to deny Jesus.  My 11-year-old told my youngest the story of Peter denying Jesus the night Jesus was arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane.  I think that is the image we think of: to deny Jesus means we blatantly say we don’t know […]

Perfection?

We sometimes get so caught up in perfecting the presentation of our ministry, we lose focus on the purpose of it! How many times have we missed opportunities to minster while being consumed with perfecting how our message will be presented? What difference does it make how good it looks if we haven’t conveyed our message?

How do we move forward when we can’t stop looking back?

Philippians 3:12-14 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting […]

Running the Race

This Saturday is our local 5K.  I’m not a very athletic person. I’m one of those people that if you see me running, then you better run too because something is after me!  Last year was my first time participating in the race, and my goal was simple: don’t die and don’t finish last.  That’s […]
