Recently I listened to a message from Andy Stanley in which he explained that the Bible is not the basis for Christianity. I'm sorry, what? He went on to explain that for the first few centuries of Christianity — the period during which it went from being a renegade sect of Judaism to ...

Abiding

Shortly after I finished grad school, my wife, our infant son and I were homeless. Sort of. I was without a job when our apartment lease ran out, and we were not able to get it renewed. Far from family, and with no place to live, we ended up moving in with some friends and stayed in their ...

Ever received a gift you already had? You probably tried to be gracious about it but, deep down, you may have felt like it was a waste. Who needs something they've already got? (With gift cards from Oscar Delta being a notable exception.) So when we read in John 10:10 that Jesus said, “I ...

Your shortcomings are not the hurdles to keep you from God. They are the vehicle to get you to him. Did you ever imagine that the very worst parts of your life were the parts that God wants the most? Again he entered the synagogue, and a man was there with a withered hand… And he said to ...

In our community group last week, one of our members made the honest confession: “When I was younger, I thought, ‘When I get into college, I’ll focus on my relationship with God.’ And then, ‘When I get out of school, I’ll get serious about my walk with ...

Please Don't Send Me to Africa
