The Jesus of the Old Testament Too


I came across a couple verses buried in the middle of a bunch of Old Testament laws this morning that broadened my understanding of Jesus. It’s quite remarkable: “See, I am sending my angel before you to lead you safely to the land I have prepared for you. Pay attention to him, and obey all of his instructions…. He is …

The One Thing a Leader Must Know


At the center of a spiritual leader’s competencies is an unshakable belief that God is sovereign. Even (or maybe especially) in the midst of difficult or even tragic situations, a leader knows that God is in control and will work for the good. “As the princess opened [the basket that she found in the river], she found the baby boy. His helpless …

What if God Showed Up in Our Meeting?


What if God Showed Up at Our Small Group Meeting?

“Wouldn’t it be great if God would just show up physically in our meeting? It would be awesome if he would show himself or if we could literally hear his spoken voice!” “But be careful! You did not see the Lord’s form on the day he spoke to you from the fire at Mount Sinai. So do not corrupt yourselves …

Snow Day Devotional


I’m working from our kitchen table today, but it’s not easy to focus. Every so often, I look out the glass sliding doors into our back yard and watch the snow coming down.

Moses returned from the mountain and called together the leaders of the people and told them what the Lord had said. – Exodus 19:7 The job of a spiritual leader can be …

Great Humility = Great Leadership


It takes great humility to be a great leader. Moses was a great leader because he was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth (in his own words! See Numbers 12:3.). It takes humility as a leader to listen to others’ advice, especially when they tell you that the way you are …

3 Vital Leadership Principles in the Wilderness


“Then Moses pleaded with the Lord, “What should I do with these people? … The Lord said to Moses … Moses did just as he was told …” – Exodus 17:4-6 As the Northeast church campus undergoes a lot of messy construction, our senior pastor, Bob Cherry, has compared it to the Israelite’s journey in Exodus. It’s a good analogy. We’re …

Trials Along the Trails


“At the Lord’s command, the people of Israel left the Sin Desert and moved from place to place.”  – Exodus 17:1, NLT For us as leaders, life is more than just setting a goal and then achieving it. God works in our lives, families, small groups, and churches in the midst of the journey, as we move from place to …

3 Secrets in the Wilderness


The secrets to living life to the full can be found in the wilderness. It was there at Marah that the Lord laid before them the following conditions to test their faithfulness to him: “If you will listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in his sight, obeying his commands and laws, …
