Have We Lost Our Compass?

The church can’t afford to lose its focus now.

All Call

One of the most irritating things about living in a dormitory was the “All Call”.  I did not happen often in my experience but I always had the same reaction. Why are they calling everybody?  Can’t they just call on the people that really need to know this? I’m busy, which was a very lose...

Already But Not Yet

Sitting in my New Testament theology class the professor used the phrase, “The New Testament is teaching that God’s will is already done though not yet seen.” Let that blow your mind for a second... Hebrews 10:14 says, “For by that one offering He forever made perfect those who are being made...

Late in the afternoon on the first day of the week at Gracepoint eight representatives of the faith community in our corner of the world made the first cut in the earth that will support our new worship center. It occurs to me that this is the intersection of a great many things. At this point the...

Buying the Lie

I was reminded recently of the horrors of the Rwandan genocide. I know that it was several years ago but something in this amazing woman’s story hit me deeply.

A Personal Caring God

As we have taken a 30,000-foot flyover of the prophecies of Daniel we have noticed one clear message. Each major prophecy in the book of Daniel explained that God knew all that was coming in the history of the church. He knew how God’s people would be treated by the world and predicted the...

A Shift Toward Discipleship

I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.” [1] As the New Year kicks off it creeps into my psyche that I have a fresh start, and therefore that I need to seize this opportunity. I know it is just...

Abundance

For many years, I have been thinking about a phrase spoken by Jesus that I believe represents His mission statement: “I have come that you may have life and have it more abundantly.” A more abundant life—what would that look like? Does that mean more money? Food? Time? Or maybe more work and a...
