Stop and Start

Posted by Scott Hiney on

At each stage in life, we find that our time is more and more valuable, understanding that any remaining time is ultimately precious. There are things I must do that stretch my time relatively thin. After I do those things, I intentionally leave time for myself to make sure I can then do the...

No Such Thing As Perfect

Posted by Scott Hiney on

Through middle and high school, I was heavily involved in music, playing trumpet in the band and, senior year, joining my high school a capella and show choirs. Music taught me plenty of things — namely making me better at singing loudly in my car each morning — but what it taught me...

Sharing Through Obedience

Posted by Scott Hiney on

Like many other concepts, ideas or actions of the Christian faith, baptism is a topic I continually learn more about each time I hear it discussed. For me, that has a very tangible reality to it, because I was baptized several years after placing my faith in Christ. That gap in time existed for...

More Than Commandments

Posted by Scott Hiney on

This is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith. — 1 John 5:3–4 Loving God is not just keeping his...

True Love

Posted by Scott Hiney on

As a young adult who grew up in the middle of the digital boom, I often feel the weight or pressure of appearing like I’m present and not like I care more about what’s on the screen in front of me than what’s beyond it. I’m sure this is a common situation a lot of us...

Just Know Jesus

Posted by Scott Hiney on

We don’t like being kept in the dark. We also don’t like our futures being in someone else’s hands. But, as we learn in John 14, Jesus left his disciples in order to prepare a place for them, even though the disciples don’t know the details about that plan, such as when...

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...

Newness in Christ

Posted by Scott Hiney on

I received salvation at the young age of 9, and it wasn’t until the final years of high school that I even began to grasp the complete restoration and resurrection that those in Christ undergo. So passages like 2 Corinthians 5:17–19 didn’t always track with me, because I...

Breaking the Cycle

Posted by Scott Hiney on

It’s been said that the definition of insanity is repeating the same behaviors and expecting a different outcome. Whoever first said this must’ve studied the Hebrew people extensively. In Nehemiah, we’ve followed the physical rebuilding of Jerusalem but come to understand the...

2016 Wasn't So Bad

Posted by Scott Hiney on

If you took a breath this year, you might’ve noticed a seemingly inordinate amount of people took time to complain about how bad 2016 seemed to be. It’s easy to fall into the trap of agreeing with this statement. Maybe your guy wasn’t elected as president. Maybe your guy was...
