It Does Not Define You

Have you ever allowed a sin to define you? It sticks to your skin like a scarlet letter and you feel like no matter where you go, who you talk to, and what you do, that sin is blinking on and off like a neon sign. You wonder, “How can God love me when I’ve done _________?” “How can I call myself Christian when I’ve been so ‘unchristian?’”

Surpassing Expectations

I always love this time of year. The temperature outside sheds its bitter chill and little by little promises of life begin to sprout on the trees and from the ground.

I also love this time of year because of the hope it signifies for all of us. Easter marks Jesus’ death and resurrection and the promise of eternal life for all of us.

Last week we spoke of Palm Sunday and Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. We talked of the juxtaposition between how Jesus entered the holy city to cheers to only leave it…

Palm Sunday to Good Friday

The truth of the matter is we cannot “fool” God. He sees and knows our hearts better than we do. If we’re trying to fool our friends, associates, and family and play for both teams—the world’s team, which changes as quickly as the dollar’s value and God’s team, which is constant and unchanging—we will find that we’re always on the losing side. If you’ve been here or are here right now, you know how hard it is to reconcile the two team’s core morals and values and how difficult it is to play both sides.

Need a New Heart?

Can you imagine being on the brink of death and passing up on a heart? Can you imagine saying no to this life-giving surgery if you needed it?

Yet many of us do just that each and every day. Our hearts are broken. Our lives are shattered. Our minds are shackled. Yet, when given the chance to experience a miraculous cure from these often debilitating ailments, we say, “Nah, I’m good” and continue on with our crippling anxiety and pain. Why do we not ask for the Master of All Surgeons—Jesus—to give us a life-giving, life-saving transplant?

Unplug

Everyone is plugged in. I took my wife to dinner the other night and as I placed my phone next to my plate, which I regret to say has become habitual, I looked around and saw face after face illuminated by the same small rectangular object that had I just put on the table. Like the nourishment I was about to partake, our phones…

Grace is a $100 Bill

It may seem strange for me to equate grace with money. You may find it a little bit blasphemous, but let me tell you a story of something that happened to me over 10 years ago…

The Great Recession had just swept through the United States and very few people were untouched by its insatiable and greedy presence. My own real estate and hard money businesses had been eaten alive and after letting go over 80 percent of my workforce, closing down the office, and moving everything to the basement of a house I could no longer afford, it was difficult to see God’s grace.

Jaclyn and I had three small children, all under the age of three, our accounts had been wiped out, all my properties, which had been leveraged to the hilt, were in foreclosure, and the loans I had made to other investors were in default. I had painted myself into a corner and felt the room closing in on me.

It was then that God urged…

Transformed

In my twenties, I was cocky salesman who traveled from port-to-port. I was good at what I did and believed the world owed me some pretty hefty favors. Then one day in walked a blond who somehow changed my life forever. Sounds like the beginning of a joke, but the joke was on me. This blond was the beginning of my own transformation.

How?

It wasn’t her faith… but her lack of faith that suddenly brought God back to mind. I saw first hand what the belief in ‘graceless god’ can do to someone and subsequently how the uncovering of the true Grace of God can absolutely free someone.

The blond is now my wife, Jaclyn. Through her, I got to witness the journey from point A to point Z. I watched as a woman wracked by fear and distrust unraveled the mystery of God’s grace and her transformation eventually became mine. I watched as she finally accepted Christ and how that leap of trust and newfound courage of faith changed every aspect of her. How she talked, how she walked, even how she thought. Grace is truly a game-changer.

Last Call?

Have you experienced a reawakening? That moment when your whole world tilts and then shifts and you realize the who’s who is not you, but rather God? It usually takes place because one day we wake up in an existential crisis and think, “What’s the point?” or “What am I going to do with the rest of my life?”

When this happens, most of us feel a sense of hopelessness and helplessness. We’re lost in this great big world trying to scrape together some semblance of meaning.

At this point, we have really, two directions to go. Toward God or toward death. I believe that this second journey is precipitated by the call of Jesus. He is whispering our names, trying to herd us back onto the right path. However there are several, common obstacles that get in the way. They are often a crisis in faith, hope, and love.

Can You Hear the Applause

I’m continually shocked and awed at the radical and unquenchable grace of Christ. With all my faults, my fickle adoration, my inattentive worship, my worldly demands, my preoccupation… I know that Christ waits for me.
