LISTEN NOW! Colossians 4:10–11 ESV Aristarchus my fellow prisoner greets you, and Mark the cousin of Barnabas (concerning whom you have received instructions—if he comes to you, welcome him), and Jesus who is called Justus. These are the only men...

No one's name gets mentioned in the New Testament because they wrote a viral blog post or authored a best selling book or because they were a famous mega church pastor.

As I become genuinely interested in another person, Jesus manifests his interest in them.

The message of the gospel can't be reduced to messaging. That's the mistake we make. The message of the Gospel is a mystery.

We don't want to look back at the end of our days and realize we were just playing dominos.

The kind of change most needed cannot even be effected by laws. It must happen in the hearts and minds of masters and slaves.

A child forms their primary image of who God is through the way they are parented.

The Kingdom comes in response to radical surrender to Jesus "in heaven," which is manifest through radical submission to each other "on Earth."

"Whatever you do" knows no limitation. It is totalizing and comprehensive. Paul instructs we are to never leave character. And the character is Jesus Christ.

When I get still and listen, I can still hear the singing.

The Peace of Christ is the Peace of the Cross, a place of unbridled chaos and unutterable pain intersected with the complete reverse of resurrection.

The Christian life is not about aspiring to better behavior but becoming abandoned to Jesus.

Compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience create the conditions where the Holy Spirit heals wounded people, mends broken relationships and reverses intractable situations.

In the Kingdom of God there are many distinctions between people but there is no difference.

Our old selves must be taken off, deconstructed, crucified, dead, and buried. This only happens when we dare to believe the gloriously beautiful truth about ourselves.

The cross always has a will of its own and it is always for God's glory and our good.

Condemned, cancelled sin can be so wiley and deceptive, and it can keep us shrouded in so much shame that we can't bear even the thought of opening up about it to someone else.

What we need are not more baptismal rituals and remembrances for the spiritually dead. What we need are more tombstones for the living.
