Avoiding Undigested Scripture Reading

Jul 15, 2020

When I was a young Christian, it was common in the communities of faith in which I found myself to aim at reading through the Bible in a year. I’m grateful for my vision of Scripture today because of how many times I took on that discipline. At the same time, I ended up with a great deal of undigested and unpracticed insights. It sometimes formed in me the habit of reading more than I could actually put into practice.

 

These days I find myself slowing down with scripture. I often...

Podcast 65: Looking Ahead – Navy SEAL Tactics for Creating New Year’s Intentions

Dec 31, 2018

There's a First Time for Everything

Sep 27, 2017

Your first tooth…your first day of kindergarten…your first car…your first kiss…your first home. Life is full of firsts. We spend our lifetime taking first steps that lead to growing up and maturing into functioning adults.

Along the way, our souls are taking first steps as well. The first time we heard about God. The first time we heard the name of Jesus. The first time we saw an answer to prayer. The first time we acted on His behalf, in the care of another. And,...
