On Knowing Christ and the Power of His Resurrection

For many years, my favorite Bible passage has been the Apostle Paul's words in Philippians 3:10 - "I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death."… But somehow, in the blindness of my flesh, I forgot or ignored the words which told me how my Father in heaven would make it happen.

Seeing with Jesus, In Portrait Mode

Reading the Gospels over, it is clear that Jesus could see in portrait mode. Of course, he could also take in a panorama! But over and over again, as Paul Miller points out, we see him “see” people, move toward them in compassion, and act on their behalf. Read More...

New Battlefields

The Father’s Joy in Resurrection

God is the one taking action in Jesus’ resurrection. The Apostle Paul is pointing out something that's really important for love: we do the dying, but God does the resurrecting. This doesn't mean that we’re completely passive in resurrection. But the energy, ideas, and the people that help—all of that is from the father. It's the father's gift to us... Read More...

Sadness on the Way to the Cross

We are living in a season of sadness. This is true globally at multiple levels, but it's also true for the Church as we enter Lent. For many of us, sadness is frightening because we don’t know how to enter it without drowning. Read More...

Grace Invites Us to Sing

A few years ago, I started to feel uncomfortable with my then lower elementary aged kids' lack of engagement in our worship service. There was no pressure around us to make a change; my discomfort didn't feel like embarrassment or guilt, but a nudge from the Lord to take action! Read More...

Lavish Hospitality in Humble Places

Débora Ramirez was shocked when the border agent told her team they could not enter Honduras. “Fifty pastors were there waiting for us,” said Deb. “I really felt like God wanted us to go, and now he’d closed the door right in our faces!” What happened next was truly God's plan for the team.

An X-Ray of Christmas

Philippians 2:5-8 is like an x-ray of Christmas – it’s the story behind the story of the manger. In this passage, Paul describes four steps to what we're calling the descent of love that help us understand not only Jesus' love for us, but also our love for others. Read More...

All of Life is Gift

In one of the hardest periods of my life, I began to thank God for his small gifts. It was out of that experience that I began to notice gift-giving cycles in traffic and other common, everyday moments. All of life is gift! Read More...

Jesus on HR

In modern business terms, Jesus was a movement leader with twelve staff that needed to be recruited. Most leaders are quick to acknowledge that recruiting good staff is challenging. Let's watch Jesus do HR work -- and manage by prayer. Read More...

Resurrection Guaranteed!

As the training for a group of leaders in Arizona was coming to a close, one of the senior leaders asked me two questions that hushed the room: “Where do you think the American church will be in 50-100 years?... Is there any hope?” Read More...

The Descent of Love

Do you anticipate a somewhat turbulent Thanksgiving or Christmas? The J-Curve is no guarantee of smooth skies (in fact doing the work of love often makes them bumpier) but it can steady you and bring the joy of fellowship with Christ into the darkest of places. Read More...

Jesus’ Gift of Honesty

In the midst of a hard season with a friend, our Director of Communications, Liz, had an epiphany: Don't flee from the truth, welcome it. Since then, she's been immensely helped by watching how Jesus "does" honesty in "The Person of Jesus" study's second unit, "Honesty." Read More...

The Missing Person of Jesus

We’ve studied how to fix the bad (redemption and salvation), but we’ve not studied this beautiful thing we are supposed to all become: Jesus. So we don’t have a clear sense of what it is to be human. Read More...

Christmas and the Narrowing of Love

One of the things that makes Christmas so amazing every year is that you never really understood it last year. The idea of God becoming a person, a little baby, is so immense that we can’t ever wrap our minds around it. Read More...

Jesus and Tribalism

America is infected with tribalism like never before. “What would Jesus do?” seems simplistic, almost trite, but I can’t think of a better time than now to reflect on that question.
