Why Don’t We Worship More in Small Groups?


Worship belongs in small groups, but some groups don’t worship together regularly. Why not? ·       Intellectualism.When knowledge of the Bible is the main objective, God gets crowded out. Agendaitusis the problem. The group simply does not have time in their tight schedule for worship and meaningful prayer. They may have Martha’s Syndrome: they are too busy doing things to sit …

Step-by-Step Trust


Jesus calls you and me to follow him on this path of life, and that decision takes trust. Not just that first primary decision to start following him, but also the daily, minute-by-minute, step-by-step decisions to follow him. As I’ve read through the Psalms lately, trust is a continual refrain. In fact, it’s a refrain throughout the Bible. Today in …

Facing Fear? Need Reassurance? Read This!


There are days when life feels so heavy and scary. Let’s face it, even as a Christ-follower and a leader, there are days when you face the future with great fear rather than great faith. I have faced days like these, and today is one of them. As I read through the Psalms, I gain some solace in knowing that …

How to Win the War with Yourself — The Secret of the Third Force


Do you ever find yourself in a war with yourself? I have. In fact, I sense I’m in the battle right now. We all do. King David did. Often this battle is waged between what seem to be two opposing forces inside of us, but there is a third force that trumps those two. Yesterday I read Psalm 22, in …

Not the kind of dead ritual of thoughtless, purposeless religious duty, but a heart-felt practice I’ve developed over the years.

Bad Trip: The “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” Chapter of the Bible


In my time with the Father this morning, I read Zechariah 5. Strange chapter at first glance. The “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” chapter of the Bible. Seems like Zechariah ate too many poppy seeds the day he wrote this. There are huge scrolls flying through the sky, like those airplane banners you see at Myrtle Beach … only …

Hosea 14 Prayer


My Father, I confess that going my own way has brought me down. I have suffered the consequences of trying to go my own way without You. So now once again I return to You. Forgive me of my sins and graciously receive me, so that I may offer you a sacrifice of praise. Government programs can’t save me, nor …

Who a Leader Listens to


A leader must know who to listen to. When Moses failed to come back down the mountain right away, the people went to Aaron. “Look,” they said, “make us some gods who can lead us….” So Aaron said, “Tell your wives and sons and daughters to take off their gold earrings, and then bring them to me.” All the people …

Mountain Climbing Dangers, Decisions, and Devotions


I feel a need to comment on my own post from February 24, “Just to Be Close to You.” I wrote that devotional based on Exodus 24 where Moses and the Israelite leaders climbed the mountain and worshiped God. There is a danger here if you read too much into this. Even as I wrote it I tried to be …
