I like to think of myself as a man’s man. If I’m not that manly, at least a guy’s guy. If I’m not that I’m surely not a girly, girl. But, the other day I have to say I enjoyed something that women love, the pedicure. Let me explain how this happened. No, I didn’t…

12 years ago

254 words

It’s taken me a number of days to wrap my head around what happened in Aurora, CO. I still don’t know what exactly to think. It is absolutely terrible.

Matthew 9:35–38 (NET) 9:35 Then Jesus went throughout all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and sickness. 9:36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion…

Loving Jesus More than Life

80 words

This passage is hard to teach on. Mainly because it’s hard to live out. I’m not sure if I love my Savior more than my kids… or my wife… or my family. It’s hard to quantify and even harder to demonstrate that I love Jesus, whom I’ve never seen or had to provide for, more…

Here is the question I’m posing: Is the Gospel a virus? I’m not talking about the spread of the Gospel. I do agree that the spread of the Gospel is, and should be, viral. What I am talking about has more to do with being immune to the Gospel. Let me preface this conversation with…
