Transactional Living

Posted by Andrew Knight on

I have a disease. This disease is characterized by brief interactions with others, short conversations and an underlying focus on time and efficiency. The effects of this disease include shallow relationships, meager personal engagement and a yearning for something more. I suffer from...

Call And Seek

Posted by Andrew Knight on

My 2 ½-year-old son and I play a game together. I would call it hide and seek, but it’s really more like call and seek. Here’s how it works: My son runs off somewhere in the house, usually just a few feet from where I’m standing. I pretend not to know where he is. I...

Confess, Believe, Abide

Posted by Andrew Knight on

“I am with you. I am for you. Don’t be afraid.” This was God’s message to Mary when he revealed through the angel Gabriel that she would be the mother of the promised Messiah. His words of reassurance even preceded the news itself. It was as if God was saying...

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...


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...
