In Trouble with God

In Joshua chapter 7 we read about Achan’s sin. In short, Achan, an Israelite, broke a direct command of God by taking some of the “devoted things” from Jericho. Jericho was given to the Israelites as the first city to fall on their way to conquering and occupying the Promised Land. God made it clear that all the gold and sliver items were to be put in the treasury and no one should take them (see Joshus 6). The consequences of taking these things would be to forfeit...

What is discipleship?

I am honored to be in the line-up for the 2016 Downline Summit coming to Memphis February 5-6. If you are not familiar with Downline Ministries , it is a unique ministry designed to restore Biblical discipleship back to the church. Which begs the question, “What is discipleship!?” Don’t be intimidated by this word. As simply as I can put it, discipleship is spiritual parenting. When someone places his or her faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, he or she experiences what Jesus... Read More

5 Better Questions to Ask Your Kids After Church

As parents, it’s important to pause and question why we do the things we do. One of the things i’ve been questioning some lately is the way I ask my children about their church experience.

I think we... Read More

For instance, on the first day of the month I will read Proverbs chapter 1, on the second day of the month I will read Proverbs chapter 2, and so on. And this is my way of investing time and energy in the development of wisdom in my life. I truly believe God gives wisdom to anyone who asks for it and seeks after... Read More

Kill the Proof

Just days before Jesus entered Jerusalem, on the last week of His earthly life, a remarkable and mind-blowing event took place. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. This is a very familiar account to anyone remotely connected to the Bible and a favorite lesson of Sunday school teachers everywhere. The challenge is being careful not to allow the familiar to make us blind to the powerful truths in this incredible event in Jesus’ ministry. 1. Timing is everything. Jesus... Read More

Don't Boycott "50 Shades of Grey" [for Christians only]

Ok, the Christian community is up in arms over the 50 Shades of Grey book and movie and for good reason. It’s one thing for this sort of erotica to be tucked in the pages of a book and contained in the lines of text. It’s another thing to take it to the big screen. So what’s the big deal with this movie? Should Christians be so upset? Here are some of my thoughts... 50 Shades of Grey is NOT the problem. I do believe this movie represents a tipping point in the... Read More
