Deuteronomy 2-3; Luke 15; Job 31 Luke 15 1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. 2 And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.” Jesus responds to this indictment with three of the most remarkable parables: The Lost Sheep, The […]

Redefining Holiness: How Jesus Embraces Sinners and Shatters Religious Boundaries

The call to revival is not a pursuit of novelty, glitter, falling down, or any other external thing. The call to revival is the call to come to the Man, Christ Jesus! We’re not after just a little spice in our meetings! We’re after Jesus. We’re after God Himself. So, as a community, I want […]

Divine Intrusions: When Jesus Unexpectedly Enters Your World

Numbers 2-3; Mark 13; Job 13 Have you ever been so lost in your salvation that even the light became dark to you? It’s not something we often hear shared on Sunday mornings, and I, for one, can understand why. Darkness in the light isn’t a celebratory concept. Yet, in my real life, outside the […]

Navigating the Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Light in Your Darkest Moments

Genesis 1-2; Mark 1; Job 1 I’ve been rethinking my theology lately, looking at my life and considering the outcome of faith that I see in others.

Embracing Holiness: Discovering God in Relationship

Zech. 13-14, Rev. 21-22, Lam. 5 The End of the Story Guest Post:  Marcia Thorsell When I finally volunteered for this post, I was flat scared!!  Soooo much symbolism, so much mystery, so much unknown, so much prophetic!!  I have never claimed to know that much eschatology and I certainly don’t have a great understanding […]

Unlocking Eternity: The Ultimate Love Story in Revelation

Zechariah 9-10; Revelation 19; Lamentations Guest Blog Post: Patty Bellingham Where is my Google Maps app? As I read today’s passages, I sometimes feel lost with all of the symbolism and need some direction. Do you sometimes feel that way when you read prophecy? It is so foreign to us, but our great and marvelous […]

Unveiling Divine Promises: Navigating Lamentations and Revelation’s Stark Realities

Zechariah 1-3; Revelation 16; Ecclesiastes 12 Are we dealing with an angry God? Are we abandoned in our sin? More and more, I’m asking the Lord for revelation on what the Gospel is and what it isn’t. The more I press in, the more I see that we have gotten off track—off in our understanding, […]

Embracing Repentance: Unveiling the True Nature of God’s Love

Micah 1-3; Hebrews 13; Ecclesiastes 9 First of all, I think Hebrews may be my new favorite book. Reading it through The Passion Translation has been absolutely wonderful this time around. As you may have noticed, the book is not signed by an author. I’ve heard theologians attribute it to Paul, and recently I heard […]

Breaking Free: Finding Jesus Beyond the Religious Walls

Jonah 3-4; Hebrews 12; Ecclesiastes 8 Because the New Covenant often gets preached as an extension of the Old, it can take us years, maybe even a lifetime, to discern that the Good News is actually really good news. If the Gospel has ceased to be good news to you, then let’s look at this […]

Unveiling the Unseen: Embrace Your Heavenly Citizenship Now

Ezekiel 45-46; Hebrews 9; Ecclesiastes 5 I’m coming back to the wonder of the Gospel! And I’m consumed with it. Consumed with the invitation we have to come in close, face to face with the One who loves us best and most. Do you ever go through seasons where you just feel dull? It’s like […]
