Serving from outside the boat

A recurring theme in our current sermon series is that when we do what we can do, God will do what we can’t do. It doesn’t matter how many times we hear that truth… we’ll often only believe it when we’ve experienced it. Take “serving others” as an example. This is one...

There’s a Hole in my Bucket

Let’s be honest. None of us feel permanently “filled up”; in fact, many of us never feel “filled up”. What’s up with that? Do our buckets leak? They do. The pressures of work, the responsibilities of marriage, the challenges of parenting… the busyness of life drains...

Fill Me Up, Pour Me Out

Who are the people in your life who are difference makers? Who are the people who sharpen you? Who are the people who challenge you? Who are the people who call you up to a higher standard? God brings people into our life who are influential friends, who give us...

Why Renovate?

Over the past year, I’ve frequently heard people ask the question, “Why renovate?” I respect the question and will answer it, but I’d love to pose another question first. “Why not renovate?” One of the things I’ve learned from 20 years of ministry is to always look at...

Discipleship isn’t for Everyone

The More You've Never Seen Before – Part 1 I started seminary in 1995. I read more books during the first quarter than I’d read in my entire life. I was learning more information than ever, but I was growing less in seminary than I was before. After my first year, I...

Converted Worms?

Are you beginning to grasp who you are yet? … and accept it? That second question’s the kicker, right? If we asked a biologist to analyze the DNA of a caterpillar, do you know what they’d say? It’s a butterfly. It looks like a caterpillar and moves like a caterpillar…...
