Honoring Christ in Our Home-Day 3

A Hotel or a Home We sadly treat the church today like a Hotel not a Home. In a hotel, one comes in and uses up resources. We empty the toiletries, mess up the bed, and get waited on hand and foot. This is sadly how we expect the world around us to work, and it’s sadly what’s happening in our world today. We are using up resources, devouring people, and expecting that everything will wait on us and our every desire. This is not the...

Honoring Christ in Our Home-Day 2

One Anothering The Bible is filled with countless “one another” statements. We are a family as Christians. No Christian is exempt from the pastoral work of love, and yet often we do just that—we leave it to the “staff” to do the “work of ministry.” However, through Christ’s saving work at Calvary, we ALL have become a family bound together in unity in familial relationship. We are called to live in peace with each other, we are called...

Honoring Christ in Our Home-Day 1

The Meal and Home In the first three centuries, largely up until the time that Constantine politicalized Christianity as the state religion, the whole of the Christian worship service (the gathering) was referred to as “the Lord’s Supper.” It wasn’t a wafer and a sip from a plastic throwaway cup that was in Paul’s mind in 1 Corinthians 10:17-34, when he spoke of the Supper. The context of Paul’s argument in 1 Corinthians clearly is...

Sound of Judah: Day One

Sound of Judah What is Praise? Why should we do it? Where and when should we do it? How should we do it?

Whether we should praise God or not has never really been highly...

Confessing in the Light

John was a man who was known as the disciple of love. When John would say something as simple as “Jesus loves you,” it would basically embody an entire sermon. John is known as simple man that said simple yet very profound things. The way that John communicates is similar to drinking a perfect cup of coffee. When we only think of coffee as something that’s good to drink, we don’t realize how much work is behind just one cup. When we...

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...

Artistic Expression in World Evangelization

When an entire village of Bolivian Indian ranch workers came to the Lord awhile ago, some missionary friends of mine were faced with very big questions. What do we do with this entire village of people that now know the Lord as Savior?  In what ways do they worship?  How do we teach them to study the Bible when most of them don’t read? And when they have no Bible-base music in their own heart-expressions, what do we suggest they...

Seven Evangelism Environments Artists Create

Given the objective Truth of the Gospel never changes, the PROCESS of evangelism is much more about helping people encounter Christ than it is explaining Christ—and ARTISTS are some of the most powerful God-designed servants God uses to create the environments wherein people experience the God-desired fruit of evangelism—people reconciled to God through the work of Christ. In fact when we emphasize explaining over encountering God’s...

Effective Evangelism Needs Artistic Expression

Evangelism that works is more than just spewing ‘correct’ biblical information; correct?  (Things like John 3:16, Romans 10:9 & 10, 1 Corinthians 15: 3-8.)  Certainly, the objective realities of these revealed truths must be present.  But their presence does not guarantee that the one(s) being evangelized will come to faith. Effective evangelism needs artistic expression:  the imaginative rearrangement of human metaphors, symbols...

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...

Leading Through Change

Change.  That word can be a very troubling thing for some people.  And for others, it is a welcomed reprieve from a monotonous pattern.  Regardless of where you personally fall on the continuum, the reality is that at some point in each of our lives, we will be faced with change.  And there’s nothing you can do about it!  But how you react to that change and how you help others walk through change; now that is what you can do...
