Misfits of Society: John 8:1-20

Misfits of Society: John 8:1-20

In some of the ancient manuscripts, John 7:53-8:11 is not found. Where it is found, it is not always in this location in John’s gospel. Even if you believe it’s a misfit passage, I’m thankful that God has continually shown Himself to misfits of society (i.e., me). May that be an encouragement to you as you consider your own caste system.

Who Is Jesus: A Good Man? A Prophet? A Liar? God?

Who Is Jesus: A Good Man? A Prophet? A Liar? God?

Maybe you’ve got your story straight on Jesus. Or, maybe you’re still struggling with understanding Who this Man is, and how He integrates into your life. This week, we’ll read John 7 and answer some of these questions that you—or others who ask you—have.

4 Approaches to Problem Solving: John 6:1-15

4 Approaches to Problem Solving: John 6:1-15

Coming up is a well-known miracle of Jesus: feeding the five thousand. This miracle was recorded in all the gospels, so it was weighty and held great meaning—both then, and now. As we study this sign of Jesus, we’ll discover four approaches to problem solving. Let’s see if you recognize yourself…

Deep Waters: An Open Letter To Women

Deep Waters: An Open Letter To Women

Last year, I wrote an open letter to my four boys on being men. This year, I write to a special young woman who’s been a divine interruption in the life of our family—especially those four boys I mentioned. You know who you are. And, while you are infinitely inimitable and beloved, there are other women who will understand or need to hear this unsolicited wisdom [my opinions are also free of charge] I’m going to speak into your life on International Women’s Day.

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 5:1-15)

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 5:1-15)

We could spend many hours debating the versions of the Bible, but that’s not the purpose of this platform. When people want to suck you into a scholarly debate about translations and which is “better,” here’s what I would say…

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 4:27-54)

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 4:27-54)

I left you with a cliffhanger from the first half of John 4 about the unnamed Samaritan woman. We eavesdropped as a conversation progressed between an unrighteous woman and a sinless Savior. This week, let’s see what that broken Samaritan did with what she learned from Jesus. I pray you’ll find healing for your own heart along the way and pass the good news along to others so they might believe.

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 3)

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 3)

“If we were asked to read to a dying man who did not know the gospel, we should probably select this chapter as the most suitable one for such an occasion; and what is good for dying men is good for us all, for that which we are; and how soon we may be actually at the gates of death, none of us can tell.” ~Charles Spurgeon

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 2:12-25)

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 2:12-25)

The Lord is speaking to you. He’s speaking to you about the state of your temple (your heart). He’s speaking to you about your belief v. your commitment. He’s speaking to you about not becoming calloused and hardened as you travel the road to Calvary…the narrow path where your will comes to die. Listen up.

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 2:1-11)

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel (John 2:1-11)

It’s time for you to grab onto this heart-changing statement from John 2 and allow this Truth to literally transform your walk.

I’m still ruminating on it myself, but it has stirred and re-stirred my heart. I know, I know, you just want me to get on with it and show you, and here it is…

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel - John 1

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel - John 1

The fourth gospel is essential. John gives us a direct look into the heart of Jesus—into who Jesus is. It was a book that was written for one purpose: that we might believe. What a blessing to have a book written primarily to help us understand the character of Christ and the meaning behind the events the Son of God performed so we would believe that Jesus saves.

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel + Giveaway Time!

Who Jesus Is: The Fourth Gospel + Giveaway Time!

The beloved disciple, John, writes a profound story that is both simple and deep. He doesn’t tell us much about himself, but he tells us plenty about who Jesus is. What a beautiful picture of the life we are to lead on this earth…

Also, I thought it’d be fun to start 2019 off with a groovy GIVEAWAY. I’m currently reading The Beloved Disciple: Following John to the Heart of Jesus by Beth Moore…

3 Essential Lessons I Learned in 2018

3 Essential Lessons I Learned in 2018

I'm not into New Year resolutions. Mainly because they set our human flesh up for disappointment and failure and I've pretty much got that covered for life. However, these last few years I've had a word. Not a goal, not a resolute, but a single word the Lord etched on my soul.

But, before I share my word, let me first reflect on 2018. Specifically, a few lessons He taught me (some of them the hard way)…
