  • God Desires You Far More Than You Desire Him:Christianity is not so much about you desiring God as it is about God desiring you. I wonder if you believe that. The truth is that we will not desire God if we don’t believe that really God desires us. If God is a powerful person who in reality cares little or nothing about us, we may have a fear-based respect for him, but we will not love him. We will certainly not be satisfied in him. We will keep our distance from him and find our true satisfaction elsewhere.”
  • Only God Can Judge Me?: “In Matthew 7 Jesus says, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” Even those of us who’ve never read the Bible can quote this part of his sermon word for word. This may be the most well known Bible verse in our day. And it may also be the most misunderstood. Misunderstanding this verse means we misunderstand how we’re supposed to love one another. So it’s important that we ask the question: What does Jesus mean when he tells us not to judge?”
  • 9 Myths of Discipleship: “We’re called to be disciples and make disciples, but this call often feels overwhelming. However, discipleship doesn’t have to feel this way. Our tendency is to overcomplicate it and think of it as something it’s not.”
