Mystery

Mystery

Ephesians 3:1-12 talks about a mystery that is revealed.  I love a good mystery.  What I do not like is for a mystery to remain mysterious.  I like the hunt.  I like the twists and turns that a good hunt takes me.  But in the end, I am on the hunt for one reason and one reason only…to have the mystery revealed.  Paul says that we are in the most blessed of times because THE mystery has been revealed to us.  What is this mystery...

Commandments?

Commandments?

Are the Commandments still relevant?  If so, how?  Paul tells us that the Commandments are like a school master who takes us by the wrist and leads us somewhere.  The scriptures tell us that Jesus is the fulfillment of the law.  So if the law takes us somewhere, it must take us to Jesus.  How is this accomplished and why is it important today?

The Unresolved Story

The Unresolved Story

Job seems to end without an definitive answer.  It SEEMS to end that way.  The truth is that it is resolved by allowing the reader to ask themselves, “Who am I in the presence of an almighty God.”  That is an easy question to feel good about asking, but it is not so easy a question to seek an answer.  Job found that he was royalty, but also that he was dust and ash.  A strange combination indeed.  Are you dust and ash? ...

Give It All Away

Give It All Away

Mark 10 says some pretty hard things about wealth.

Some people take Jesus literally here. Others say that he is speaking directly to this young man’s problem. I believe that Jesus is...

A New Day

A New Day

Greetings friends. I apologize for letting the website stagnate for a few weeks. We had a few minor technical issues, but the real reason for the absence has been my prayer life. The last few Sundays have been blessed by God and His Spirit was, without a doubt, present. But as with my prayer before preaching, I am not sure if that was around me, through me, or in spite of me. I have felt a deep need for a new vision. God has blessed me with...

No Longer Children

No Longer Children

This week Paul invites us to grow up.  “We must no longer be children, tossed to and fro and blown about by every wind of doctrine, by people’s trickery, by their craftiness in deceitful scheming.”  In today’s world, that seems so hard to say.  Someone will say that it is your interpretation, your beliefs, your desires that you are imposing on the scriptures.  But Paul seems to think that there is a clear and...
