Two Occasions

https://youtu.be/6vr9a46ZZ18   God is an infinite and  all powerful being. He is far too big and complex for any mind to fully understand, so it would be arrogant of anyone, including me, to say they know the mind of God. We cannot fully comprehend Him, we can only know what God has revealed.  Here is … Continue reading Two Occasions

True Colors

Last month, I shared a sermon series about generosity; and as I was preparing for the last sermon, something in the scripture hit me hard in my chest. In 2 Corinthians 8, The Apostle Paul was describing the generosity of the churches in Macedonia. There was a great need and the apostles were receiving relief … Continue reading True Colors

Thriller: An Argument Of Success

At over 32 million units sold, Michael Jackson's Thriller is by far the most successful recording in history. I just want that to sink in; after 35 years, no other record has sold more than this instant classic. It is the epitome of recorded music success, but at what point do we determine that it … Continue reading Thriller: An Argument Of Success

Back To Life

I hate to say it, but reality is relative. We all have our own variations of what is real and what is not, and we subsequently live in response to the reality we choose. Where there was once absolutes surrounding things as fundamental as gender identification, we now live in a culture where all those concrete … Continue reading Back To Life

Next Lifetime

https://youtu.be/H30lTFmW8a4?t=8s   Have you ever heard the saying "too heavenly minded, that you're no earthly good"? Well clichés are cliches for a reason, because this is a true statement. One of the greatest criticisms of the Christian faith is our preoccupation with heaven and what happens after we die. This fascination is particularly prevalent in … Continue reading Next Lifetime

California Love

https://youtu.be/5wBTdfAkqGU California is a unique place, and the people who live there (I believe) love to tell you where they are from. They are fully aware that there is no other place like California. California is a destination for millions of vacationers and dreamers, with bright lights and big cities in their eyes. However, those … Continue reading California Love

Mama Said Knock You Out

https://youtu.be/vimZj8HW0Kg I've heard it seen at time and time again. A parent will get down on their knee and look their small child in the eyes and say something to the effect of, "I ain't raising no punk. Now, don't you start a fight, but you better not let them run over you."   Growing … Continue reading Mama Said Knock You Out

Poison

https://youtu.be/sb2np1HGqxg?t=33s It is inevitable. Everyone is going to want something that they do not need. Not only that, but we will all at sometime want something that is bad, dangerous, or down right fatal for us. At some level, we are all fascinated with the excitement of thrills. Being daring and even cheating death is … Continue reading Poison
