Treasure

Posted by Luke Bedford on

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. — Matthew 6:21 Jesus is right in the middle of what is known as The Sermon on the Mount when he speaks these words about treasure. The surrounding verses are speaking about storing up treasures in heaven, and how it is impossible...

When To Stay, When To Go

Posted by Luke Bedford on

Should I stay or should I go? Whenever I hear these words, the ever so catchy song by The Clash always pops into my head. But outside of those words that everyone knows, they are followed up with, “If I go there will be trouble, and if I stay there will be double. So come on and let me...

Move Forward

Posted by Luke Bedford on

The idea of moving forward from our past is something that a lot of us may struggle with, myself included. We are often unable to keep our minds from dwelling on what we have done or what has happened to us, whether it be something that occurred 10 days or 10 years ago. Fortunately, for those of...

Earthly Desires

Posted by Luke Bedford on

And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” — Luke 12:15 My wife and I recently downsized our housing by almost half the square footage we were once living in. As we...

He Loves Us

Posted by Luke Bedford on

Some of the most awe-inspiring moments I have had in my life have come in the times when I am able to get away from the lights of a big city, in the quiet darkness of night, and gaze into the sea of stars that surround us. In these moments, it amazes me that we are such a small blip in an...

The Gift of Grace

Posted by Luke Bedford on

The call to ministry was a call that God placed on my heart pretty quickly after placing my life in his hands at the age of 17. At that point in my life, I would have been considered a pretty good kid by society’s standards. I played football throughout middle school and high school...

Bearing Fruit

Posted by Luke Bedford on

The thought of doing something alone, such as going out to a restaurant by yourself, or going to a social gathering without a date or, at the very least, a friend to tag along is a weird concept to a lot of people. Most people have the desire to surround themselves with people that make them...

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...

Our New Position

Posted by Luke Bedford on

The term “dead in your trespasses” shows up twice within the first five verses of Ephesians chapter 2. That is a scary thought, to be dead in your trespasses. Not just the literal death of our bodies, but the spiritual death beyond that, with eternal separation from God hanging in...

Living In Community

Posted by Luke Bedford on

When I first started attending c|Life four and a half years ago, I heard almost every Sunday about the importance of living in community with others, but I never allowed myself to truly experience what that meant until September of 2015. At that time, my wife and I began leading a discussion...
