Give Thanks for the Little Things: Thoughts from Dietrich Bonhoeffer

This is an excerpt from Bonhoeffer's book, "Life Together." I haven't read anything outside of Scripture so profound in quite a while. I pray that you will be as enriched as I was upoon reading these words, and that we all can learn to give thanks for the little things in life. "In the Christian community, thankfulness is just what it is anywhere else in the Christian lif...

Growing in Christ: Proof that He's our Daddy

Part 3 - Christian growth is proof that God’s our Daddy “… but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘Abba!

Holiness not not equal morality

For many of my years in Christianity, I had a broken view of God's commandments to be holy. I confused "holy" with "get better", "act right", and "be good".

Jesus tells us that they will "see God"- His own words. That's a mighty big promise. One that should captivate the minds of every follower of Christ. ...

A Call to a Deeper Christian Life: Part II - Don't let your senses be your Master

A simple examination of our culture today will tell you that our senses are being seduced and courted.  Apples are waxed and glossed before they hit the shelf.  Cheddar often is a very bright and an appealing orange (due to dye).  Clothing lines hire the most beautiful people to display their products (even Abercrombie & Fitch's CEO was recently accused ...

A Call to a Deeper Christian Life - Part 1: The Christian Life Requires Deep Thinking

A Call to a Deeper Christian Life Part 1 - The Christian Life Requires Deep Thinking At my other job, there is a TV next to me that plays today’s top hits in pop/rock. The music isn’t bad, per say, but in all of the songs, there is very little depth to the lyrics. Currently the top ten on the billboard charts within the pop genre, nine out of ten songs are ab...
