Fake It Till You Make It

grace 101

Jesus promises us tribulation in this world (John 16:33). Not only will there be suffering, but we are also called to give, serve, live on mission, love God, love others, and lay our whole life down as a sacrifice. This can be overwhelming at times.


Confessions of a Christian Zombie

I suffer from a horrible hunger. It burns in my gut. I’ll call it what it is: it’s a sickness. I wander around groping in the dark trying to satisfy my diseased cravings. I’m not proud of that, but it’s true. I’m a Christian zombie, and I want to eat your brain. There, I said it… and I want your heart, too.

The Spirit Inside You is Better than Jesus Beside You

Luke begins the book of Acts with a surprising statement. He says that in his former book—the Gospel of Luke—he “wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach” (Acts 1:1 ESV). The implication is that Acts records what Jesus is continuing to do. It’s not that in the Gospels Jesus worked, and now we, in his absence, work for him; during his incarnation Jesus worked through his earthly body and now he works through us.

doctrines of grace sanctification

I was at a get-together the other night and someone asked if anyone else had the experience of feeling guilty and not being able to tell if it was true guilt or if it came from the years of the superficial guilt over everything we were indoctrinated with by the weak religion of our youths. It was one of those moments where my chest tightened with excitement and my eyes widened. It’s a struggle I’ve had for years.

Eat, Drink & Be Merry

The triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem (Matthew 21 and Luke 19) always seemed strange to me. On the surface, it looks like just another party. There are the same smiles, excitement and celebration. But there is more going on here. In the midst of celebration, Jesus is preparing to die. He is going to be mocked, scourged and crucified. He knew it. His disciples knew it. When you realize what is really happening here, it just about takes the fun out of the party.
