The summer is over, and a new season of busy fall activity will soon be upon us.  Are you wondering what the Lord has in store for you at this point in your life and ministry to others?   A group of men from The Fellowship have been praying and working through how the Lord would have us move forward in the area of Men’s Ministry, now named "The Fellowship of Men."  The truths the Holy Spirit is revealing to these men are pertinent to all of us, male and female.... + read more

  None of us can soon forget the overwhelming experiences of April 15-19: the chillingly brutal attack at the Marathon; the gradually unfolding revelations about two radicalized brothers; the unprecedented city-wide shut down of a major metropolis because of an invisible enemy somewhere in its street; and the final breakthrough in discovering a blood spattered youth hidden in the shadows. Asymmetric warfare. What just one radical can do to disorient an entire massive population.... + read more

Over the last two months, we have taken a look at some issues related to community.  Again, my objective in this series is not to share my “wisdom” in this area, as I feel extremely far from being wise and experienced in the area of true biblical community.  I love interacting with my brothers and sisters, but I still feel I am not that good at relationships in many ways.  Rather, my focus has been to look at some of the key biblical truths about community, in order... + read more

  So you look at your co-workers in the office and you think you’ve been dealt a tough hand.  Or maybe it’s your project team at school.  The Sunday School class you teach. Your in-laws.   Well, if you think you’re surrounded by knuckleheads, look at the gospel records of Jesus.  His disciples seemed to major in missing the point.  How can you claim to be a follower of Jesus when you are going the opposite direction?   You... + read more

When I came home from my first college semester break and informed my parents and friends that I had become a Christian they all gave a similar response:  “That’s fine, but just be sure not to take this Christianity thing too seriously.”  This sentiment is in some ways similar to a concern expressed by a number of Christians around that same time:  “Don’t be so heavenly minded that you are no earthly good.” Although there were some... + read more

What you now read in early January, I was writing just before Christmas. The brutal attack on the elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, has gripped our nation – and me – with horror and mourning.   We open our Bibles to find comfort. In the Christmas story itself, we learn that this kind of appalling violence is not a brand-new, modern development. We usually edit the Christmas story for the sake of our children. But as adults we should face the stark realism... + read more

  Let’s face it. We would all like to be great, or to have a great life. In some ways it sounds kind of selfish to want to lead a great life. Seeking to make ourselves into something great sounds a little selfish and prideful. But God has made us to strive for greatness. We serve a great God and he has built into us a desire for greatness. The challenge for us is to seek what God calls greatness, not what we call greatness.   What greatness means, from a Biblical... + read more

  We humans probably use and rely on more filters than we realize. In most cases filters serve to block things that are harmful to us, while letting through things that are beneficial to us. We use air filters in cars, planes, homes and offices to purify what we breathe. Many of us use carbon water filters to help purify what we drink. Our atmosphere filters the suns rays to remove some things harmful to our skin.   In many respects the Word of God is a filter. It directs... + read more

  We are in the midst of another presidential election season.  Soon we will choose the leadership of our nation for the upcoming years.  Polls tell us the decision is very close.  There are strong feelings on both sides.  Many are greatly concerned about the health and direction of our nation and hope that this election will improve our situation.  Maybe you are stressed over the potential ramifications of this election, or maybe you are so busy and stressed... + read more

  The political furor this election season highlights our need to reflect carefully on our role as American citizens.  Philippians 3:20 reminds us that our heavenly citizenship is not merely a future reality.  Right now the believer is a citizen of heaven, even while he is a citizen of an earthly nation.  This dual citizenship has profound implications.   PRIORITY.  Our deepest heart commitment must be to that eternal citizenship.  While the... + read more
