" A herald to the body of Christ"

Abiding In the Burn Pile

“I am the vine and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away, and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” John 15: 1-2 NKJV I’ve lived the bigger portion of my Christian life not understanding the message in this […]

What Did You Accept?

Almost every believer will tell you that they’ve accepted Jesus Christ as their savior. We’re taught that accepting Jesus is the only way to salvation, and without this acceptance, we’re condemned to an eternity in hell. For a lot of people, just hearing that statement is all it takes to accept Jesus…

In Jesus Name?

“Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us…” 2 Cor. 5: 20. Paul saw believers as ambassadors for Christ and His kingdom. He believed that the lives of believers should represent the life of Jesus and of His kingdom. I happen to agree with him. When I think about […]

When Believers Refuse to Believe

Earlier this year as Covid-19 began to shake things up, my wife and I talked at length about how the body of Christ would be exposed in this. I recall saying that I felt that the rooftops of churches were going to be peeled back, uncovering those hiding under religion and separating church affiliates from the ones who make up the actual Church. What I’m seeing playing out in open view is that the faith community is shrinking drastically. I’m not talking about people walking away from Christianity, but people who claim to be of the faith, but are so lost in denial of how our faith is calling us to respond that they cannot see straight….

In the Same Boat

“…And when He got into the boat, his disciples followed him. And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but He was asleep. And they went and woke Him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing. ”And He said to them, “Why are […]

The Revelation of Truth: Part 2

In “The Revelation of Truth: Part 1” I touched on the revealed identity of Jesus contrasted by the known identity of Jesus. To quickly summarize, the natural truths of His identity were made irrelevant and obsolete when divinely revealed truth was made known. For instance, the disciples had seen and heard Jesus operating as the […]

The Revelation of Truth: Part 1

In Jesus’ life on Earth, He was 100% human. He was also, and is the Son of God. His natural identity was completely perfect and His heavenly identity was completely perfect. Each of these personas were different and they were also both right. Only one, though, is understood solely by divine revelation from the Father. […]

The Reason for Our Existence: Part 2

Have you ever found yourself shopping for a church online? Or have you ever happened to check out your own church’s website? Even churches that don’t have a website will usually have a bulletin, but somewhere, if you look hard enough, you’ll find a mission statement for nearly every congregation in the United States…
