The Hole in Our Great Commission, Par...

In Parts 1 and 2 of kicking off this new series, “Missional Identity”, I argued that the hole in our Great Commission is the oft neglected call of Jesus to “behold” His incarnational ever-present reality with us on mission. A mouth full to say the least. In more simpler words, Christianity as a whole often […]

The Hole in Our Great Commission, Par...

In Part 1, I argued that the hole in our Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) is an oft neglected word we miss due to our focus on the other words. A 5th word that is not just as important as the other actions Jesus’ demands, but may even be THE most important. It’s the word: BEHOLD. […]

What were the charges in Jesus final words? Go, make, baptize and teach. But what about the 5th and most unused action, “behold”? What do we behold, why do we behold it and how do we behold?

Thoughts on Anger & the Mission

Mj7V8XkOQLqVOyeXxixu_fierari-boardedwindows

*(my use of “anger” in this post refers primarily to sinful, out-of-control anger not righteous indignation or justifiable anger; which I’m convinced most of us humans no little to nothing of, save from the example of Jesus) I don’t know when I became so angry. Or how. I’m 34, live a very blessed life with […]

Is that even the right question to ask? I don’t know. So I ask it. In my most recent episodes where I interviewed my good friend Rob Wilkerson on what it means to be “done with church but not with Jesus”, I have seen nothing short of a firestorm. Which to me indicates we’ve hit […]

Stop Starting, Start Finishing

IMG_2827.JPG

Jesus wants us to master finishing, and finishing well. Carpenters, like Jesus, know well what it means to finish a project.  He’ll tell you the joy that comes in finishing a project he starts. The challenge of finishing overwhelms anyone to be attracted to the sexy appeal of starting something new. My dad is a […]

All Christians are ex-refugees, since we are foreigners and aliens in a strange world. Heaven is our home. Earth is temporary. So how are we live and love in light of the Syrian refugee crisis? I love Rob’s simple yet powerful challenge. – Jonathan Chambers

4 Reasons Why We Refuse to Have ME Ti...

ME time is a reflection of real life. A retreat from the routine. A mobilizing from the mundane. An ostracizing from the ordinary. A departure from the daily.

Missional Means ME Time

guy on mountain ledge with sunrays

Me time. What is it? It sounds selfish, right? Especially when it’s ingrained in your spiritual Christian psyche that life is “not about me”. Which is true in many aspects. Life is about God our Creator and is to be lived for His glory. And life is about loving other people. So if life is boiled down to two rules: 1. Love God and 2. Love others. Where does love for self fit in? Or does it fit in at all?
