What did God make you to do?

I like commitment. I’m not talking about commitment from other people, although I definitely like that, too! I’m talking about me actually liking committing myself to something. Can you say the same? Let’s look at the opposite of commitment. Who do you respect who has...

Your Destiny

What’s your destiny… your divine destiny? Need some help with that question? • Your destiny isn’t something you manipulate, coerce, or talent yourself into. • Your destiny isn’t to sin less. • Your destiny isn’t dependent on or affected by your history, your heritage,...

Lighten up…

Do you ever talk to yourself? Of course you do… we all do. I think I talk to myself more than most. Except, maybe, for my wife and daughter! My internal dialogue typically revolves around three primary subjects: my relationship with God; my relationship with others;...

21 Statements About You

Do you know who you are? I mean, do you really know? I’m not talking about the results you get from all those personality tests prospective employers and Facebook marketing moguls have us do. I’m talking about accepting and believing the truth of who God says you are....

Big Decision: How should we respond?

What do you think about repentance? Most of us think it’s promising to do better. But we can’t promise our way into spiritual maturity. What if repentance isn’t a promise from you to God? What if it’s a gift from God to you? Here’s a radical suggestion: Don’t tell God...

The Person Behind the Pastor

Imagine this scenario: You bump into me at Starbucks and in the midst of small talk you ask, “How’s your summer been?” What are you expecting me to say? “Great!” What if I said, “Difficult…” or “Discouraging…”? I’m guessing it would catch you off guard. Firstly, most...

Tired of Performing?

Here's a question from this past Sunday’s message at Highpoint Collierville… Did Jesus have to do the works of God in order to be the Son of God? … or… Did He do the works of God because He was the Son of God? He’s the Son first, our Savior second. He’s our Savior...

Candid Conversations. Why?

What type of conversations do you enjoy? I prefer unfiltered, candid ones. Unfortunately, those types of conversations are few and far between. You may be wondering why that is. Let me answer that with a question: Do you have unfiltered, candid conversations with...

Weekend Prayers

Father, Thank You for Your faithfulness throughout 2014. Thank You for providing through our people with end-of-year giving. We needed $600,000 and You provided $598,337.82. Technically, some people may view that as short, but I’m grateful and have no doubt You’ll...
