The Progression of Moral Failure

The Progression of Moral Failure

There is nothing quite so devious as moral impurity. But there is also nothing quite so predictable. Our great Enemy knows that he doesn’t have to be creative with immorality. The bait is so strong that it just needs to be placed within our reach. If we do not immediately apply God’s remedy, we will be ensnared. Sweet for a moment, the end results are always excruciating.

No-Doubt Thomas

No-Doubt Thomas

%%excerpt%% On this day in history, Thomas, disciple of Jesus, saw the risen Savior. He was “Doubting Thomas” before that day, but never again after. It is interesting that this event happened in a time of fearful self-quarantine for the followers of Jesus. Since Jesus was crucified, they had been spending much of their time locked away in a room out of fear that they would be the next ones on the cross.

Let’s Talk: Resolving Conflict

Let’s Talk: Resolving Conflict

What are we doing this weekend? That cost HOW much? Can you finally take out the trash? Where do you want to go eat? What do all these questions have in common? They are all potential landmines to eventually conflict. But that doesn’t mean we should avoid them, or can avoid them. But how we navigate our expectations and the differences of opinion we have says a lot about our lives, our relationships, and ultimately what we believe about God. This week on Let’s Talk, we’ll share some of the ways we handle conflict, (that’s been humorous but not helpful), and how Jesus is showing us a better way.

The Extraordinary Power of Forgiveness

The Extraordinary Power of Forgiveness

Everyone gets hurt. If you haven’t been hurt yet, just keep breathing … it will happen. Once hurt, you must decide how you will respond. And you really have only two choices—to forgive or to take revenge. Revenge has many forms. You can withdraw, ignore, retaliate with words or actions, gossip and slander to tear someone down, and on and on. But what you’re saying is this: “You’ve hurt me; therefore, I’m going to take this matter into my hands and hurt you back.”

A Story of Easter, COVID-19, and Revival

A Story of Easter, COVID-19, and Revival

Easter, A.D. 260. I sit at my favorite place along the rocky shoreline of the Mediterranean Sea and watch the Easter sun rise over the city of Carthage. I’m a regular visitor here. I like this spot so much, not only because of the view but because of the privacy. It’s a long, rough walk to get here, and once I sit down behind the stone ruin of a port long abandoned since the Punic wars, I am unlikely to see another living soul.
