By on May 18, 2017 in Ministry with 1 Comment

“The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’” (Luke 7:34) Why did Jesus come? He came to serve, to give His life as a ransom, to seek and save the lost (Mk 10:45; Lk 19:10). I think we […]

A couple of years ago, we noticed something odd growing in the middle of our crape myrtle tree. This particular tree is on the side of our house where we hardly ever play or walk, so we hadn’t paid much attention to it in the 6 months we had lived here. If you know crape […]

Theology Thursday: Understanding the Mosaic of the Atonement

By on August 25, 2016 in Theology with 0 Comments

I grew up in St. Louis, MO, and one of my favorite places in the city is the Cathedral Basilica. This massive cathedral holds the largest collection of mosaic art in the entire world. It’s breathtaking! Wall-to-wall, intricate glass pieces line vaulted ceilings and vast archways, creating portraits that depict entire stories. Up close, you […]

Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us, we have to see it as something done by us.

Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us (leading us to faith and worship), we have to see it as something done by us (leading us to repentance). Indeed, “only the man who is prepared to own his share in the guilt of the cross,” wrote Canon Peter Green, “may claim […]

Theology Thursday: Did Jesus Actually Claim to Be God?

By on June 30, 2016 in Theology with 1 Comment

It was probably the most frustrating conversation I’d had since the time I tried to explain how I forgot to snip the security tag out of my clothes and that’s what was making the alarm go off! (Another story for another day…) She was intelligent, well spoken, and passionate. She knew her stuff. She even knew a […]

How the Chains of Grief Break the Bondage of the Heart

By on February 23, 2016 in Faith, Jesus with 1 Comment

I lost my mom in February of last year. It made for a complex 2015, with many lessons I didn’t want to learn and much sanctification I didn’t anticipate. They say hindsight is 20/20 and I really do believe it’s true. As I look back at 2015 and forward into 2016, I see how strong […]

Last week, I received news one of my former personal training clients went to be with Jesus. She was a college student, and I trained her when she was in high school. Jordan was very introspective & inquisitive. Our PT sessions were often as mentally intensive as they were physically intensive. One day, Jordan sent […]

Theology of a Red Door

According to early American history, a red door signified that a home was welcoming. The red door was a way of communicating to tired travelers, traveling by horse and buggy, that this was a safe place to rest for the night and have a warm meal. In Scotland, homeowners would paint their front door red […]

A Tale of Stained Hands

By on April 9, 2015 in Jesus with 0 Comments

Once there was a girl. One day, she sinned. But it was only a little sin. Yet, she noticed that after she sinned, she ended up with a drop of red that stained the skin of her hands. The next time she sinned, another small drop of red stained her skin. And another. And another. […]
