Take Hold of Grace and Embrace Your Righteousness

I spent several years "addicted" to pornography and masturbation, drinking too much, eating too much, and many other indulgences. And I spent many years (those same years) praying for deliverance to seemingly deaf ears. I was so afraid that the Lord hated me because of my bad habits and that I would end up in...

Faith

In 2008, I got my first motorcycle. I still have it today. Back then I had some different ideas about faith and how to develop it, and how to use it. I thought it was something to be exercised (and maybe it is) and to be used like money to get "stuff." And I thought... Continue Reading →

Inevitably some... Continue Reading →

It seems like just a couple of years ago they were my little kids arguing about which Veggie Tales video to watch. I... Continue Reading →

The Transformers

When I first became a Christian life was all about behavior modification. But it didn't really start out that way. Initially, I was drawn to Jesus himself. As you could imagine, it was not laws, rules, or regulations that drew me in. It was the Lord's love and forgiveness and mercy and grace that is... Continue Reading →

A More Christlike God

I am reading an incredible book called, "A More Christlike God." For the longest time, I have suspected that since the death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ, the world has been slowly but surely being transformed by the power of God's love into something new, the kingdom of God. I know it doesn't look... Continue Reading →
