It’s Time to Grow Up

The book of James focuses on growing up and maturing and if there ever was a time in our history when Christians needed to grow up and mature, it’s today. James speaks to spiritual progression. He wrote about little children growing into strong young men and women of faith who have God’s Word abiding in [...] Continue reading…

Finding Safety in God’s Presence

It seems our current culture, the society or the world in which we live is full of fear. People are worried about everything from Ebola epidemics to identity theft to ISIS attacks to open borders. What’s the answer? I think we can look at 2 Chronicles 7:14. It says, “If my people, who are called [...] Continue reading…

Judging or Condemning?

Judging is prominent in our culture today. Shows like American Idol and the Voice have opened the door to everyone being a judge of performance or style. We see commentators on news media judging events, people, speeches, press conferences and the weather. We even watch as people’s moral behavior is judged often against a standard [...] Continue reading…

Standing at the Door

I am writing in this post about a man named Lot and a stand he took at a very crucial time. Lot was Abram’s [later called Abraham] nephew. Abram was a man of incredible wealth and he had a huge entourage, which, in that day, distinguished him as a man of means. Lot also had [...] Continue reading…

The Theology of Shout

Many times, as we express our faith, we just need to shout. Shout in praise, shout for joy, and shout about God’s faithfulness when we’ve extended ourselves to believe and obey, in faith. I call it the theology of shout. Scripture gives us some vivid pictures of this: First we just need to read Joshua [...] Continue reading…

A Faith Expressed

This past week Grace Chapel celebrated its 20th anniversary. While thinking through the past twenty years and celebrating God’s work in and through us, something about our church and our people really jumps out at me—we are a group who humbly and actively has a faith expressed. What do I mean by that? I can [...] Continue reading…

The Day of the LORD

When I see this phrase—the day of the LORD—I am struck by the power of God who created galaxies as well as the tiniest insect. I am reminded that He rules all that there is and how foolish we are to ignore Him, run from Him and disobey Him. The prophet Joel speaks loudly and [...] Continue reading…

Friends, this Sunday, October 5th, is the first time the Sacred Assembly will be held in Nashville. It begins at 5:00 p.m. at the Legislative Plaza. It is expected that thousands of followers of Jesus will be showing up and praying for revival in the church and awakening for the country and the world. The [...] Continue reading…

Spiritual Restoration

2 Chronicles 29 gives us a vivid picture of how a nation can be restored and as a result, genuine revival can take place. King Hezekiah, at the beginning of his reign, found the temple in a shocking state of neglect and misuse. It mirrored the people’s condition before God. His predecessor, Ahaz neglected and [...] Continue reading…

Moving Back to Our First Love

In my last post I wrote about the church at Ephesus and what Jesus had to say to them in the book of Revelation. He gives them credit for what they were doing right, but he strongly rebukes them because they had satisfied themselves with Christian doctrine and not Christ Himself. They put Christian service [...] Continue reading…
