Love One Another

After realizing that we need to be walking in confession in order to avoid idolatry, John reminds us that Christ is our advocate. He also reminds us that Christ is the payment for our sins. In doing this, John begins to point out the ways that we can avoid various types of idols by expressing that we can have confidence that we know Him if we keep his commandments. His command is simple: that we love God and that we love others, which...

Marriage | A Work of Art

Marriage is a creative work! Creativity is a marriage! I’ve been pondering this a lot lately in regard to what God has to say about the Art of Marriage in the Scriptures. Our artist, Yahweh, and our Lord God, in the opening scene of Scripture, bursts into darkness to create light; land and sky; and all creatures and creepy things. This includes us, and all of our creepy neighbors who live next door. All of creation originated in the...

Embodying Grace

  I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God; Wondrously show your steadfast love, O Savior of those who seek refuge from their adversaries at your right hand. As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness. Psalm 17:6a, 7 & 15 (ESV) When it comes to personal evangelism, feelings of obligation, guilt, and duty have never been effective motivators for me. On the...

Why Imagination is Key in Evangelism

Why Imagination is Key in Evangelism

A person will not believe what they can’t imagine. So, evangelism has to involve imagination.  We have to use our “imaginal intelligence” (imagination) to help the unconverted imagine the reality of GOD, the goodness and love of GOD, the reality of Christ’s payment for our sin, and the benefits of confessing their sin and surrendering their life to HIM. That’s a big order.  In fact, for evangelism to happen, a person MUST find their...

What is Greatness?

  I don’t know about you, but when I gaze into the heavens, and when I survey the earth and the nature therein, I’m brought to my knees in awe at the wonders of God’s artistry!  No human can deny that there is an awe and majesty to our universe.  It’s simply dumbfounding.  Sadly, however, I have to confess that my response to such encounters with beauty, and the realizations that follow, do not always lead me to a life lived...

Be Still, and Know that I am God

The prophet Habakkuk charged the nation of Judah, and all the earth to be silent before the LORD, resident in his holy temple (Hab 2:20). The context of Habakkuk’s message was the imminent destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonian armies of King Nebuchadnezzar. The prophet’s admonition still has currency for the people of God today, as the nations continue to rage against God and each other. As we hush before the Lord in his holy...
