I’m so distracted with so much. Even as I write this, I have Monday Night …

A Christian Leader’s Confession: I Love God’s Word!


God's Word is Love

I love God’s Word.  To some people that might sound weird. A little fanatical. Some may even say my love is misplaced: it’s OK to enjoy reading the Bible,but you should reserve your love for God, right? The Bible is more than just a book to read. It’s different than Tom Sawyer or Atlas Shrugged or Twilight. The Bible is more than just …

Trying Hard in the Spiritual Life: Rx for Burnout?


Burnout Bible

As Christ-following leaders–of small groups, ministries, churches, families, businesses, ourselves–we know that our relationship with God must come first. If we spend time with him, committed to walking with him, seeking him, and putting his kingdom first, he will take care of everything else and will overflow through us into the lives of those we lead. We know that, don’t …

Wanted: Authentic Small Group Leaders (Arm-Chair Theologians and Lone Rangers Need Not Apply)


Are you an authentic small group leader?  If we as small group leaders say we should all be witnesses yet do not do so ourselves, this hypocrisy teaches people to be disobedient. It gives the message, “I say you should share your faith, but I do not really mean it because, as you can see by my actions, I don’t …

How to Add More Candles to Your Cake (So You Can Become More Childlike)


It takes maturity to have childlike faith. This is a vital principle for the Christ follower. It’s fundamental for a Christian leader. It’s basic for discipling someone. This is Part 3 of a series in which I’m exploring one Bible verse: “[God] bends down and listens” (Psalm 116:2). (Read Part 1 and Part 2.) I defined childlike faith as “complete trust in our Daddy, even …
