Remind Me Oh Lord of the Price that was Paid

They bound His hands, and they took Him captive. They beat Him, and they spat on Him. They slapped Him, and they plucked the hairs of His beard from His face. They put a crown of thorns on His head, and they whipped Him. They put a robe on His back and yelled, “Hail the King of the Jews.” They nailed Him to the cross, and they killed the Son of God.

Passengers

“You busted his lip!”

“Look at what you did to him!”

“Good work guys, good work! Way to go!”

“This is horrible.”

“Yeah, the police grabbed him. He’s an older doctor. He wouldn’t get off the plane, so they forced him off.”

These are direct quotes of some of the things that were said by other passengers as Dr. David Dao was literally dragged from his seat on an overbooked United Airlines flight this past Sunday.

LOOPHOLE HUNTERS - Episode Two: Relationships (Part One)

Written by Jeremy Pate. Posted in Blog.

In this series, we are taking a look at some of the ways in which we, as Christians, hunt for loopholes in God’s Word. “Loophole Hunting” is when we take a clearly communicated command from God – one that was intended to be taken into the depths of our hearts and to change our lives - and we find a “technicality.” This technicality, in our minds, gives us permission to either lessen the impact of the command or, in some cases, disregard it entirely.  

LOOPHOLE HUNTERS - Episode One

Last week, we came face-to-face with the unfortunate truth that we, as God’s people, are often guilty of reducing His Word into mere “external observances.” We were forced to admit that we are often best known for turning the Bible into some kind of “checklist,” denying its real power (2 Tim. 3:5). We have an undeniably long history of taking God’s teachings, robbing them of their rich depth, and limiting their potential to change our lives from the inside out.

The show “House Hunters,” which premiered on HGTV in 1999, has produced over 1,700 episodes and spawned over a dozen “spinoff” shows in its 18-year run. Some of these recent spinoff shows include “House Hunters: RV Edition,” “Houseboat Hunters,” “Island Hunters,” and even “Tiny House Hunters.”

Are We Wrong About Being Wrong?

Wrong

In Matthew 23, Jesus had some unusually harsh words for a group of very religious people who had gotten a lot of things “wrong.” He acknowledged that they had gone to the trouble to “tithe mint and dill and cumin,” but He also accused them of having “neglected the weightier matters of the law” (vs. 23).

 Have you ever had a garage sale at your house?

Brooke and I have hosted a few successful garage sales during our 11 years of marriage, and by “successful” I mean that we are still married.

Beauty & the Beast... And the Christian

I grew up watching Disney movies. Because of my love for drawing, I obviously watched all of the animated features; but I also religiously watched some of the lesser-known live-action Disney movies (“Swiss Family Robinson,” anyone?). As a child, Disney represented fun, family, adventure, and usually a few catchy songs.

As we wrap up this study on our response towards fear, let’s take a look at one final approach:

THE “FEAR OF GOD” APPROACH: What does this approach towards fear look like?

THE FEAR FACTOR - PART TWO

Misplaced

Last week, we began a 3-part study on how to handle fear. We took a look at the “Frozen by Fear” approach and saw that it is an unwise and unbiblical way to deal with our fears. We simply can’t “do nothing” in most scary situations and still be pleasing to God.

So let’s examine another possibility this week:

Frozen-by-Fear

 

Have you ever been in a situation that scared you to the point that you didn’t know what to do or how to handle it? Have you ever allowed fear to control your decision-making? Have you ever wondered what to do when you are scared to do anything? Maybe some of these situations sound familiar:

Dear Paul...

Dear-Paul-Graphic

Tucked into the back half of the New Testament is a one-chapter letter written by the apostle Paul. The letter is only 25 verses, and it is curiously unconcerned with presenting theological or doctrinal concepts, church instruction/correction, or a treatise on any specific issue.

This letter was, in fact, written to one person: a Christian brother named Philemon.

When Jesus Doesn't...

Footsteps

I get lost.

A lot.

Before the invention of GPS, I made some of the most foolish driving decisions in the history of mankind. As a result of my abysmal sense of direction, I typically like to follow other people when I don’t know where I’m going, which is pretty much all the time.

Over the years, though, I have observed a very specific driving scenario:
