He Must Increase

Word of the Day

At the end of John Chapter 3 there is a neat little scene that takes place between John the Baptist and a few of his disciples. John's disciples get a little hacked off because people are leaving John and flocking to Jesus to be baptized. John's response to his disciples is basically "I already told you guys that I'm not the Christ." He tells them again that Jesus is the M...

Choose Life

Walk with Jesus

On Tuesday nights my wife and I meet with a couple that God has blessed us with. My friend Kevin likes to sing and does it out loud (often). This last Tuesday he was singing the words to a song that I hadn't heard in awhile. All I picked up on was the line "let it be said of us." It was bugging me a lot this week that I couldn't remember the words to the song, so I finally...

Sweet Talk

Word of the Day

I actually had most of this entry typed and ready to go a few days ago, but on the advice of my wife and the Holy Spirit (sometimes those are eerily similar) I decided not to. I had written the beginning and then deleted it. What was left my wife said "just didn't sound like me." It just didn't work because the intro was missing. In the intro there was (and is) a part abou...

You Can't Go Your Own Way

Walk with Jesus

Fleetwood Mac wrote a catchy tune called "You can go your own way" sometime in the 70s. Going your own way is something that seems like a pretty good idea. I'm sure there were thousands of school assemblies just this year with motivational speakers telling kids to have a dream and go for it (I know because I've sat through a few in my day!). It feels so right to go with yo...

How I'm Fighting For JOY

Word of the Day

John Piper wrote a book called "When I don't desire God: How to Fight for Joy." To be honest, I've never finished the book, but that title has always stuck out to me....How to Fight for Joy. It seems like those two things, fighting and joy, are opposites. I've been realizing more and more lately, however, that this is one of those paradoxes of following Jesus. I am natural...

The Full Moon and God's Love

Walk with Jesus

Tonight I noticed that there is a full moon in the sky. For me, there is something very comforting about a full moon. It reminds me that God is still God. God is the one who is in control of all of my circumstances and even though I don't always FEEL like it, God loves me. I think David may have had this in mind when he said this in Psalm 8:3-4 "When I look at your heaven...

Hear, O Sons

Walk with Jesus

First off, I want to apologize for something I said in my last post. I mentioned that "any good Christian" reads Proverbs every day. This was actually a weak attempt at humor. I realized after that some who don't know me may have taken it as arrogance. Please forgive me if I offended you. Thanks A friend reminded me recently that Proverbs 1 though 7 is basically a convers...

What Does God Really Enjoy?

Word of the Day

It's actually kind of weird to think about God enjoying anything in the way that we understand it. I enjoy watching a good football game, eating really good food, and spending time with my wife(I should score points for this). However, when I think about it nothing gives me more joy than seeing my kids run up to me and say "Daddy", when they do something they know I want t...

Little Fishermen

Walk with Jesus

There is nothing more dear to my heart than my children learning to love God and fear Him. I know that this desire is Godly, but I also know that my desire for my kids to love God can easily become an idol. I keep that thought in mind as I write this.I have been a professional teacher for the past 10 years. I have spent significant amounts of time around kids from Kinderga...
