“I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint. Then the Lord replied: Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For […]

Imitation of Christ Series

Expectation v. Reality

So here are the hard questions: Is God a sadistic God? No, scripture says He is a loving (1 John 4:6-8), just (Psalms 25:8), and holy (Leviticus 11:44-45) God. Did the Disciples suffer needlessly? No, through their suffering what started out as a small group of followers grew into the salvation of billions through the ages as the Gospel of Jesus Christ spread. So, in reality, is there a purpose for your suffering or hard times? Yes. You have a cross and a purpose and many times they go hand in hand.

Things Eternal

On Friday, I had the privilege to volunteer for a hospice program at a nearby nursing home. When I was given the opportunity to choose where I would volunteer, I immediately knew it would be there (years before I was a hospice volunteer). There is something humbling about being given the opportunity to spend time with someone, stranger or not, whose journey is nearing the end. It’s humbling because you recognize your own humanity and just how finite this physical life actually is.

Unlimited and Unstoppable

Mission trip to the Gambia

The biggest misconception you can have about going on a mission trip is that you are going to minister to other people. Yes you do minister to others and share the gospel, but it is what you receive in return that is truly life altering. There is nothing more humbling than realizing that you are “richer” than those who you deem to help, but actually are poorer in joy and spirit.
