The Gospel: Missions Disclosed

Cuba: sandwiches, cigars, or whatever else you may know about the country, there is one thing for sure, they NEED the Gospel. They need Jesus. This past week, LifeLight founder, Alan Greene, spent time in Havana

If It Were Easy, Everyone Would Do It

[G]o to [your hometown or city] and speak with my words to them.” Such a direct command. It is easy to throw your heart into foreign missions, but when it comes to confronting people you cross paths with every day, the real challenge begins.

Christians: More Than Casual

As we see it, ‘Casual Christians’ are a big problem in today’s church. We have gotten too comfortable in our daily settings. We see the same people and we have the same conversations, over and over, and over again. We do not venture out; we do not talk to the poor, homeless, or needy in our own communities. We have gotten too comfortable staying in our own Christian bubble.

The Calling of the CROSS

“Christians care about all suffering, especially Eternal Suffering!” – John Piper

Overwhelmed. Overwhelmed and in awe. Your great love has covered me. Your Gospel has smothered me, like the weighted comfort of a blanket. Warm and cozy to the touch. As I free myself of worry, casting my cares on You, I sink down further in Your love.

When Words Hurt

Take a moment of silence and listen. Can you hear it? Muffled stern tones of a feint memory. Your mother scolding you saying, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!”

To Know & Be Known

I have always struggled with the thought of Christianity being labeled a religion. It has just never seemed personal enough to me. Giving your life over to God isn’t about being in a religion or having ‘rules’ to follow. Being a Christian is about knowing and continually drawing nearer to God. Not only should we desire for a close, personal relationship with Him, but…

Justice-In-Justice

That’s Not Fair!”

Whether you look back on your childhood or have children of your own, life never seems to be fair when you’re young. Every little incident turns into a dramatic whirlwind of tears at the invalid “justice system”. It is the type of thing that makes you think back and laugh. Were the circumstances really unfair? Or was the childish mind unable to see outside of its selfish desires?

We have all been there. At our wits end on what to do in a certain circumstance, with seemingly no coherent answer or way out. It is a struggle of body, mind, and soul. Maybe you are struggling financially, seeking a medical diagnosis, or even having family problems. Whatever the case, you so desperately want to find an answer. It is in times like these that we are to

The Inconceivable Holiness of God

Inconceivable!” Yes, I just quoted one of the greatest movies of all time: The Princess Bride. Throughout the movie, Vizzini repetitively uses the word ‘inconceivable’ in a variety of contexts. Finally, Inigo Montoya confronts Vizzini saying, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

The Hardest Saying of Scriptures

I once listened to a message by elder Tom Patton, of Grace Community Church in California, where he claimed the phrase “God so loved the world” as the hardest saying of the Bible. How can this be true? God loves us, I mean, why wouldn’t He? How can God’s love be such a hard saying?

Powerless in the Midwest

“So this is the generator?”

“Yeah, this is it.”

I glanced sideways at my friend Josh Brewer and went quiet for a moment.  He raised his eyebrows and shrugged.

We both looked back at the white, trailer-sized piece of equipment and were quiet for another moment.
