6 Steps Every Christian Can Take To Improve Their Devotional Life

The biggest steps are often the smallest steps. Most of the people I know think bible reading and prayer are small steps. They’re boring steps. They’re not world-changing steps. They’re certainly not big steps. But a quick look at every survey examining “causes for spiritual growth” that I’ve seen, tells a different story. It turns […]

Send Phoenix: Catch the Vision at the SBC 2017

  The SBC is preparing for her Annual Meeting. Aside from being far west of the typical SBC footprint, and being a hot place for us baptists to gather, Phoenix is also one of the most unreached large cities in America.

As a result, the king had them thrown into the fiery furnace. Far from being […]

Immanuel: Embrace the Longing

  Maybe it’s just me, but this Christmas seems heavy. My own family is still working through the pain of loss, a lot of families in my church are hurting, and every time I turn on the TV I see and feel the pain and suffering in the world. This pain of life leaves the […]

Preaching Christ at Christmas…and the rest of the year too!

  Every night of December my wife and I gather around the Christmas tree with our toddlers to read Old Testament passages of Scripture and then to proclaim Christ from them. We put a new ornament on our tree every night as a symbol of the Old Testament promises fulfilled in Jesus. Our children can […]

Home For Christmas
