Jesus’ Re-Incarnation


Since today is officially the start of the “holiday season” (I know … “Christmas” is the religiostically correct term, but I’m still digesting Thanksgiving), and since Advent does begin this Sunday (for those who celebrate it, which I haven’t since growing up Catholic, but plan to again this year after a 22-year hiatus), I thought I’d share a little about …

“Why is it so important that solitude come before community? If we do not know we are the beloved sons and daughters of God, we’re going to expect someone in the community to make us feel that way. They cannot.” –Henri Nouwen  I’ve been blogging a short series about our inner life, discipleship, community, and ministry, inspired by Nouwen’s Spring …

Scary Questions God Is Asking Me


God is trying to get my attention about my relationship with him, and it’s scaring me. On Monday I wrote about an inner life that is “like a banana tree filled with monkeys jumping up and down.” Today in my time alone with God, as I was meditating on Habakkuk 3, he spoke to me about three more inner-life issues. …

Lessons from Lynyrd Skynyrd & Mother Teresa

Thankful for God’s Jealousy, Vengeance, & Anger


I am thankful today for God’s jealousy, vengeance, and anger. I haven’t always felt that way. In the past, as I’ve studied the Old Testament and read about God being a jealous God, seeing his anger burn against the people he created, and observing his vengeance, I frankly didn’t like it. I don’t like thinking of God that way. I …

As for me …


Today as I was reading Micah 7, I stopped at verse 7: “As for me, I look to the Lord for his help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me.” “As for me…” This phrase appears 54 times in the Bible (NIV), often as a comparison of a godly person’s response to …

Evil for Evil?


Today’s Bible Passage: Micah 2 Scripture: Micah 2:3: “But this is what the Lord says: “I will reward your evil with evil; you won’t be able to escape! After I am through with you, none of you will ever again walk proudly in the streets.” ObservationI don’t like the New Living Translation here. It sounds like God does evil in …
