A Way Out

  If you think you are standing strong, be careful, for you, too, may fall into the same sin. 1 Corinthians 10:12 In the last 24 hours I've discovered three of my mentees have fallen victim to the trap of sexual sin. Good, God fearing girls, leaders among their peers, respected young women. Girls who are strong in their faith now having to confess, repent, and suffer the consequences of their choices.It breaks my heart. Not because I'm disappointed in them or angry with them, but because I know that all sin leads to death.

Do you Love the World?

One thing I miss about being a Children's Pastor is teaching kids to memorize God's Word. I have to confess, I'm terrible at memorizing anything, especially scripture. So teaching the kids memory verses helped me memorize them too. Our lead Children's Pastor had the most amazing way of creating fun ways to memorize scripture and one of my favorite verses we taught the kids was 1 John 2:15 "Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him." I wish I could let you see and...

Quiet

Psalm 46 gives an account of a season of trouble. It's filled with words that communicate dire conditions....earth give way... mountains fall into the sea... waters roar... mountains quake... nations in uproar... kingdoms fall... earth melts... desolations...And at the end of this description of suffering the Lord speaks "Be still and know that I am God".Be still? Be still in the midst of trouble and desolation? Be still in the midst of raging war and devastation? How do you be still when the world around you is crumbling?Maybe the question isn't how but why? Why be still? Why not run?...

Uncontainable

One of the most traumatic experiences of my childhood was when Toto pulled back the emerald green curtain to reveal that the "Great and Powerful Oz" was nothing more than an ordinary man from Kansas with an elaborate special effects system. My heart sank when I realized that the Wizard had no real power and it was all just a façade.As I got older I became a theater junkie. I was in the drama club in high school and spent lots of time behind the curtain. I loved seeing how a false reality could be created for the stage.

Happy are Those that Mourn

Happy are those that mourn, for they shall be comforted. Mat. 5:4 I ran across this verse earlier this week studying for my Sunday School class. I have to confess, it's caused me to pause and ponder for days now.Happy are those that mourn?How does that even begin to make sense? Isn't' the whole point of mourning the absence of happiness?In my inability to wrap my mind around this I decided it was time to dig deep. So here goes.According to Strong's Concordance the Greek for mourn is pentheo. It means "the feeling or act of grieving".
