How easily we slip into being wrongheaded in our religion and turn it back into something we do or work at. How freeing it is to live by what has already been done.

Something to boast about!

There is something human about wanting to share good news with others. Perhaps it is a new picture of grandkids or a recent success story from school or work. There is a look on my friend’s face that says there is something to report – and it’s good! I wonder how many of my thoughts of what I’d like you …

What difference would it make to know God well? We’re in the second chapter of Knowing God titled The People who know their God. On this Mother’s Day weekend we’ll turn our attention to a young person who would be the delight of his mother as she, if she got to watch from a nearer distance than this mother did, …

the study of God

C.H. Spurgeon in the 19th Century proposed in a sermon that “the proper study of Christians is the Godhead.” I wonder by which date this comment had already become anachronistic in Western Society and then also by which date it became outdated even among Christians. We find ourselves in a day when this is at best relegated to the Academy …

Knowing God

We will follow the chapter topics and content from the highly influential book Knowing God by J.I. Packer in our current teaching series. The book also provides lovely discussion and reflection questions for readers. Packer introduces the book with a very poignant distinction between two perspectives on the matter of the knowledge of God. He provides two self-evident caricatures in …

sharing

One of the most important lessons in Kindergarten.. learning to share! And is it not one of the hardest life lessons for all of us to learn at any age?

the Bible

In our journey with the 40 Acts community we come to a wonderful story of a man in a chariot reading Scripture and wondering about what they meant. In our circles (evangelicals) we have deliberately or subtly assumed custody of the Bible. It is our book, our text, our story. We let others see it but reserve the right to …

Saul

A very angry and principled young man watched a stoning with a sardonic nod of approval. Radicalized in his ideology he was obsessed with eradicating heretical upstarts who opposed the true faith as well as schooling those who compromised the doctrine and practice by less than full and devoted adherence. He viewed himself as doing God’s work. He was organized …

Gifted

As our children were growing up and I was involved in pastoral ministry in a few churches over those years it seems we had lots of conversations about “pastors’ kids” and “deacons’ kids” and how that was a recipe for disaster (as our PKs and DKs set out then to prove true!) Our teaching this weekend concerns the very first …

united

Early Christ followers were said to devote themselves to four activities. The verb means to persistently commit oneself to something. They persisted in the apostles’ teaching, to fellowship, to breaking bread and prayer. Was there a time in our lives when we had a more vibrant version of church? When we were more persistent? Which of the four will need …
