SONday is Here. He is Risen! John 8:21-59

SONday is Here. He is Risen! John 8:21-59

As we continue through John 8 and celebrate SONday (Resurrection Sunday), these latter verses fit in perfectly, starting in verse 21 when Jesus talks to the crowd about Him “going away” (His death, resurrection, and ascension into heaven)…

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 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 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.

The Truth About Today

The Truth About Today

We must choose to see Jesus – we must choose to fix our eyes on Him despite all the chaos and noise. The awesome truth is that Jesus came to earth fully human (and fully God) so that He could be merciful and faithful to you. This week, we pick up with that same thought about how Jesus is our faithful High Priest in Hebrews 3.

The 2 Types of Effectual Prayer to Practice

So, here we are – together. You and me. Connected not through social media or an RSS feed, but through Jesus Christ. I may never meet you on this earth, but I can’t wait to worship with you in heaven. Until then, let’s commit to running this race together. Onward and upward as we finish out James in chapter 5 this week.


The "Dislike" Button of Life

The "Dislike" Button of Life

I had so much fun this last week sharing my 7 Simple Essentials with you! This week we’ll talk verse-by-verse about James chapter 2 (it’s a good one) and I’ll share the names of the readers who will receive the gifts of encouragement (you have to wait until the end of the study — no cheating! ).


Exodus 22: A Holy Nation

God desires our best because He gave His best: Jesus. This a rich truth for us to anchor in our life, especially as we begin each morning. I understand not everyone is a morning person, but we see Christ’s example throughout the gospels of how He rose very early in the morning (Mark 1:35) to pray. Jesus knew that feeding our spiritual man first, would bring about a godly harvest for the day.
