RESET: Priority. “Don’t Waste Your Life.”

So what does it mean to keep our eyes “fixed” on him? It’s not mustering up some kind of warm fuzzy spiritual feeling of devotion. It doesn’t mean becoming a religious zealot. It doesn’t mean becoming one of those “holier than thou” people. To keep our eyes fixed on him means becoming his student, a life long learner of him.

On Trusting and Fruiting

The goal of discipleship is christlikeness. Christlike behavior is the external fruit that is the result of an ongoing internal transformation, and this internal transformation is the result of the Holy Spirit’s ongoing work in the life of a believer who, by grace, is seeking Jesus and his kingdom (Matt 6:33). This greatly impacts how we minister to teens!

What has business got to do with faith? (Part 1)

One would think that introducing Lydia as a woman who deals in “purple cloth” would have been the normal way to introduce her rather than by her religious faith. For the author, the key identifier for her is her gender, place of origin and the faith she professes. Her faith influenced how she lived her life including how she conducted her business.

Reflections on Dean’s “Almost Christian”

...the blame behind the wide acceptance of Moral Therapeutic Deism in today’s youth does not lie with youth themselves, but rather with their parents and the churches these youth attend. In essence, our children aren’t disciples because we aren’t disciples. We’re more focused on our kids' happiness and success than we are on their discipleship.
