The Creed of a Bold Jesus Follower

I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed, the die has been cast, I have stepped over the line, the decision has been made--I'm a disciple of Christ! I won't look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure! I'm finished and done with low living, sight walking, smooth knees, colorless dreams, ta...

Weird: Because Normal Isn't Working

"Know what's weird? Day by day, nothing seems to change, But pretty soon, everything's different." –– Bill Watterson (Author of Calvin and Hobbes cartoon) Normal infects our faith as well, both what we believe and how we live it out. When we consider how people relate to God, it's normal to either reject God altogether or believe in him while living as i...

Crash.

I was surprised to learn that a group of buzzards waiting around together to feast on leftover carnage is called a committee. Just this one insight is worth the price of the whole book. This explains so much of what's going on in churches--a lot of committees waiting around to live off human carnage. Groups of flamingos are called flamboyants, which for some reason remi...

The Murder of Jesus

The pieces are in place. The curtain rises for the final act. God is about to die. In spite of such drama, we know the story all too well. Two thousand years ago, salvation came to fallen man through the tragic murder of the Lamb of God. Unfortunately, modern society is so inundated with stories of injustice, this one merely seems like another to add to the heap. A reli...

The Prodigal God

The familiar story is found in the fifteenth chapter of the gospel of Luke and is an essential passage in order to get to the heart of the Christian faith. The parable's plot is very simple. There was a father who had two sons. The younger asked for his share of the inheritance, received it, and promptly left for a far country, where he squandered it all on sensual and fri...

Just a Stone's Throw Away

Throughout the Old Testament, God instructs kings and military leaders to be courageous and to lead courageously. The Old Testament is full of narratives that illustrate the necessity of courage in the life of the leader. Esther, Joshua, Gideon, Moses.... The list goes on and on. These men and women were given an opportunity to bring about change. And in each case they fou...

GOD in the Manger

Surely the most widely celebrated holiday around the world each year - generating more attention, more excitement, and more anticipation from people than any other special day - is Christmas. Thanks to the huge amount of advertising and publicity that promotes the holiday with seemingly greater intensity and duration from one season to the next, Christmas has transcended n...

Spiritual Amnesia

Why are we so quick to forget God? Who do we think we are? I find myself relearning this lesson often. Even though I glimpse God's holiness, I am still dumb enough to forget that life is all about God and not about me at all. It goes sort of like this... Suppose you are an extra in an upcoming movie. You will probably scrutinize that one scene where hundreds of pe...

Your God is Too Safe

Your God is too safe. The safe god asks nothing of us, gives nothing to us. He never drives us to our knees in hungry, desperate praying and never sets us on our feet in fierce, fixed determination. He never makes us bold to dance. The safe god never whispers in our ears anything but greeting card slogans and certainly never asks that we embarrass ourselves by shouting ...

No Sacrifice

I think many people make a fundamental mistake in the way they view their relationship with God. They view it in win/lose terms. They see it as a zero-sum game. They focus on what they have to give up and fail to realize how much more they get back. A relationship with God is the ultimate win/win relationship. Let me go out on a theological limb; I don't think there is ...
