Following Jesus is a dance with God. It’s learning the timing of two vital steps – wait and move. These steps define the heroes of the Bible.
Genesis and the Lights of Christmas
The very first words of Genesis tell the pattern of human history. Those words remind us of why we love Christmas lights and a warm fireplace.
5 Steps to Walk with God
Noah found favor because he walked with God. We too find favor when we walk with God, but do you know how? Here are 5 steps to walk with God.
Communion: Graham Crackers and Juice Boxes?
Why does communion matter? It is much more than just the bread and the wine. It’s about covenant, but it also is all about the bread and wine.
Joseph: Peace man
God sees things as they ultimately should be. Know God will use evil (not cause evil, use evil) to make things the way they should be. This is true peace.
Judah: A lion of a man
Salvation has come. There is hope for you and me. That’s good news. Even better news is more salvation is still to come.
Joseph: It’s just perfect!
Too often I wait for the perfect time, perfect place, perfect person to do the thing I feel called to. What a waste! God can bless the imperfect places of life, so I don’t need to wait for perfection to act.
Joseph: Where you go…
I have a simple philosophy: you are a leader. Everyone leads at some point. As a leader, there is one simple rule – take your followers somewhere.
Jacob: Say goodbye, Say hello
Covenant sees your past, understands your present , but looks forward to your future (pain and all). Most importantly, it means, God is in it.
Joseph: better over bitter
I have agency over my feelings about God, myself and others. I can choose to be angry and bitter, or I can choose to believe God is doing something better.
