What's On Your List?

Posted by Andrew Knight on

The Christmas catalog from Target arrived at our house last week. There was a time when our children would have seized upon it, markers in hand, to circle all the things they wanted to find under the tree on Christmas morning. But this year, it hardly evoked a glance. Clearly, our teenagers have...

Messy Uncertainty

Posted by Andrew Knight on

Okay, can I be honest? It takes time to write these devotionals. It would be much easier if the church staff would just tell me exactly what to write. They could give me the devotional, already written, and I could just sign my name to it. Or else they could give me an outline that I could fill...

He Is For Us

Posted by Andrew Knight on

Our son just went off to college for the first time. Needless to say, it has been a bittersweet time around our house. We miss having him around, but we are excited about this new chapter in his life and where he is headed. In the midst of all the feelings and emotions, one thing is certain: we...

Heaven is a Real Place

Posted by Andrew Knight on

Writing a devotional about eternity is a bit like writing an essay about the cosmos. Even those who seriously study it have only a vague idea of what it actually entails. While we may understand the general concept, the details are largely beyond our comprehension. How can finite man begin to...

The Director

Posted by Andrew Knight on

A sci-fi flick. A superhero movie. A tense, psychological thriller. Each of these movies (made by my son’s favorite director) have different styles, different genres and different storylines, but my son has seen them all, simply because of the man who directed them. The interesting thing...

Eyewitness News

Posted by Andrew Knight on

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

Posted by Andrew Knight on

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...

The Gift We Truly Need

Posted by Andrew Knight on

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...

The Easy Yoke

Posted by Andrew Knight on

How do you kick back and relax? Do you sink into your favorite recliner in front of the TV? Do you lounge on the couch with a blanket and a good book? Do you walk around with a large piece of wood fastened to your neck? The last option doesn’t sound too relaxing, which is why it seems...

Flying

Posted by Andrew Knight on

My wife loves her boot camp buddies. Even though their workouts are at 5:30 in the morning, even though it is dark and cold at that hour, and even though their time together involves a significant amount of pain and effort, she loves being with them. Why? Community. As much as we may value...
