Faithful with a Full House

Deuteronomy 6:6-9: 6Andthese words that I command you today shall be on your heart.7You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.8You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.9You shall write them on...

What are we believing God for?

I'll never forget. I was a marriage pastor at a mega-church. Loved the people. Loved the ministry of pouring into young couples. The salary? Not so much! After my family's medical was taken out, and after Uncle Sam got his, my take home was less than a teacher's salary in one the most expensive areas in the city. Seriously. In the year and a half we labored to make it work...

I was Clyde "The Glide"...

I WAS Clyde Drexler. It was 1995. I had just started dunking a basketball (one out of every 6 attempts of course). In the early 90's I had perfected the dream shake. But then in '94, the Rockets acquired Clyde "The Glide" Drexler, and I took it upon my self to meticulously study and break down his every move. Clyde had this double between-the legs crossover WHILE going int...

The "Displaced" Church

What will "Church" look like now? As a pastor, as a follower of Jesus...this is a question that continues to fill my mind and absorb my energy. Early this week, I hopped on a call with over 140 pastors to collaborate and discuss plans for moving our churches forward in the midst of this current Corona Virus crisis. Real talk - It was pretty discouraging. I get it. We all n...

Marriage Matters - Reflecting God in Procreation

Last Sunday I said that I would share some thoughts (via blog) on God's design for procreation. In the message last week, we said this:If you want your marriage to matter, look to its Designer. We said that as a Christ-follower, your marriage can reflect the image of God through relationship, through covenant union, and through mission. I also mentioned that marriage can...

You Can't Judge Me

In light of walking through Matthew 5-7 over the past month in our sermon series: The Kingdom in Matthew, I wanted to share a few thoughts on Matthew 7:1-5, one of the most misquoted and abused passages of Scripture. A while back, I read yet another Facebook quote about not judging others from a Christian artist that I actually really like. He's edgy, counter-cultural (in...

Mercy and Me

In all honesty, there are times when I have read the book of Hebrews and have been stopped in my tracks, perplexed and troubled. Several years back in seminary, I remember studying the "warning passages" of Hebrews, where the people of God are warned about falling away. After "tasting the heavenly gift, sharing in the Holy Spirit, and tasting the goodness of the word of Go...
