Hebrews: A 28-Day Musical Devotional-Day 7

Wandered The writer of Hebrews quotes Psalm 95:7-11 to remind his readers that in Moses’ day the Israelites failed to enter God’s rest because of their disobedience. Even after they had witnessed how the Lord rescued them out of Egypt, they grumbled against God and lost sight of his promises to deliver them to Canaan. They wandered in the wilderness for forty years, and the entire generation of rebellious people died.  In today’s...

Hebrews: A 28-Day Musical Devotional-Day 6

The Maker of Stories: Here, the author transitions from exposition (the discussion about the person and work of Jesus) to exhortation (the commands to endure). He compares the faithfulness of Moses with that of Jesus. In the ancient Jewish culture, Moses epitomized what it means to be a faithful servant of God. Yet Christ was more faithful than Moses, being faithful as a son. Therefore, Jesus is worthy of more glory than Moses. While...

Peer Pressure on the Worship Team How do you hold each other accountable on your worship team? How do you gently encourage improvement and exploration of our individual “growing edges”? The team has reassembled after a bit of a Summer break to tackle the topic. Also, please note that we skipped a number. We recorded Episode 205 at the beginning of July; however, we’re having trouble with one of the audio files....

Honoring Christ In Our Singing-Day 1

Day 1 | FOR THE MIND, THE BODY & THE SOUL Songs are important to us! They not only have the power to equip us for a good car ride, but the world is making every effort to perpetually define the style, the songs and the artists that are appropriate for the training of the human mind, body and soul. We must realize that God created singing, and thus as its grand architect, he knows completely its purpose and appropriate...

Honoring Christ In Photography-Day 3

The idea of transposition is a photography term, but is helpful for us in how to see the world God has made when we apply it in the manner of the great Christian philosopher C.S. Lewis.  This way of perceiving the world—which photography and any form of art can help us understand—came to him one day when he came upon a toolshed in the woods.  He describes the occurrence; “I was standing today in the dark toolshed. The sun...

Honoring Christ In Photography-Day 2

After his death and resurrection, Jesus reconnects with the disciples. Even after the fact, they still didn’t understand his purposes. Still caught in the lie that the Messiah would not suffer, they held fast to their conviction that Jesus would reign as a political King over Israel. The disciples, and everyone else, completely misinterpreted the Messiah as portrayed in the Old Testament. They missed that he would first become a...

Honoring Christ In Photography-Day 1

Photo of the Father We all take photos, but I don’t think any of us really think about the truth behind what we’re actually doing. Hebrews 1b-3a can help us here: God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he...

Sarah Kroger Discusses “Bloom” A worship release caught out attention recently. Sarah Kroger’s debut album with Integrity, Bloom, showed up in our inbox last month with a long list of production and co-writer credits that we couldn’t ignore including our friends Ross King, PJ Anderson, Audrey Assad, and Josh Blakesley. That was intriguing enough for us to give the album a spin. It certainly didn’t...

The Book of Acts it is the story and history of the church. In it, we see the Apostles send letters, ride in boats, access modern trade routes and traveling systems, and preach in town squares and facilities related to the architecture and culture of that day. The Apostles were able to harness the highest forms of “tech” in the Roman empire to share the gospel. We should do the same. The Apostolic philosophy toward tech in...
