Good Friday


Posted by Jennifer Smith on

Today is Good Friday. I have always found the name somewhat ironic. It was on this day, nearly 2,000 years ago, that Jesus was beaten beyond recognition, forced to carry his own cross until he could carry it no further, and was murdered on that cross while wearing a crown of thorns on his head. ...

To What End?


Posted by Kevin Kelley on

Dozens of Cadbury eggs, packs of Peeps, jelly beans by the pound, mounds of synthetic grass, colorful plastic eggs and disposable wicker baskets — those are the essential ingredients for a proper Easter celebration. Once amply saturated with sugary goodness, we welcome the peace, joy and ...

Bread of Life


Posted by Luke Bedford on

I think we can all agree that some of the food we eat can be seen as a wonderful gift from above. (In fact, according to my Facebook feed from Sunday afternoon, Randy Wade made the folks over at the Kaufman campus have a hankering for some good chicken-fried steak). If you don’t feel that ...

The Answer Was Right In Front Of Them


Posted by Doug Hall on

Sometimes I look too hard, think too long and analyze too deeply. While not bad practice in certain situations, the answer to my question is often apparent. It is right before me, lost in a maze of questions, doubts and elaborate examination. I fail to see the obvious. It can be the same with ...

Born Looking


Posted by Crystal Brashear on

They came asking. They came by day, bustling in crowds of hundreds. They came by night, skulking through the shadowy darkness, alone. They all came  asking. They came hungry, their mouths open like baby birds. And he fed them. They came thirsty, and he gave them living water. They came ...

Why Choose Darkness?


Posted by Rebecca Spence on

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”— John 8:12 What is darkness, but the absence of light? What is sin, but the absence of Christ? Over and over ...

Missing the True Father


Posted by Scott Hiney on

Sometimes in nature, though rarely, a young animal will lose its parent and, miraculously, another animal will raise that young as its own. To relate, God is the foundation of our faith. It is by and through him that we have life, and no one can come to the father except through his son Jesus, God ...

A Sense of Purpose is Powerful


Posted by Steve Glenn on

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.— Colossians 3:23 People who have a strong sense of purpose can do great things. God has given us a purpose: to bring honor to him and to encourage his people. The Word tells us that God has ...

Joe's True Purpose


Posted by Lisalette Hamon on

My husband, Joe, grew up playing several sports but went on to play baseball in college. He had offers to major Division I schools, and verbally committed to catch for the University of San Diego, which was ranked third in the nation at the time. Nearing the end of his sophomore baseball season at ...

A Beautiful Poem


Posted by Ian Crosby on

I’m the first to admit that I’m not what most people would call a manly man. Honestly, I’m way more comfortable building a sandwich than building a coffee table. But I remember when I used to love trying to build stuff (trying is the key word). For Christmas, when I was 7, I got ...
